  • Notes 
    • Luremia Combs was born about 1740, probably in Amelia County, to John Combes and his first wife whose identity is unknown. John’s wife at the time of his death was Frances Elam who he married in Amelia County on Sept. 11, 1750.

      Francis would become embattled with her step-children after John’s death, although she assuredly raised at least some of those children. Luremia would have been about 10 or 12 when her father remarried, which means, of course, that Luremia lost her mother when she was a young child. Based on a subsequent lawsuit, and the fact that Luremia did not name a child Frances, I would hypothesize that Luremia did not enjoy a positive relationship with Frances, at least not as an adult.

      Luremia was married to Moses Estes, probably in 1762, because their first child, George, was born in Amelia County on February 3, 1763 according to his Revolutionary War pension application.
