I believe we have a Coombe connection. My husband's gg grandfather was Hilkiah Coombe, b 21 Sep 1820 in England. He married Sarah Dobbins in York Co., PA 1842. They are listed on the 1850 and 1860 Lancaster Co. PA census. Also listed on the same page 1850 census is Elkanner Coombe, wife Susanna and their children.
Nov. 1864 Hilkiah and Sarah have a son, John Edward, born in Mass. In 1870 both Hilkiah and Elkanner and families are located in Vermont.
I think it is a strong possibility Hannah is their sister and Jane Coombe the mother of all three. Helkiah's death certificate in 1884 lists his father as John Coombe and his mother as June (?).
I also have the IGI record of John Coombe's marriage to Jane Ash, 28 Jan. 1805.
Please contact me by e-mail.
