  1. It’s hard to pin down Robert Combs, the soldier that fought in the Revolutionary War and applied for a pension, died in Virginia, and I doubt if they transported his body to Ohio for burial, OR DID THEY? I am a descendant of his through Alexander Warren Combs, (he had twin brothers, Burr and Nimrod). I have a picture of Alexander “Zant” and his wife, Nancy Dye Combs. I would like to clear up the burial in Ohio, is it the War Veteran, or his son, and what were the wives names, Sarah Linton, Nancy Sears? Can anyone help me?
