This obituary does not mention Opal's brothers...from step-father James Henry Combs or Kendrick Combs. There is one the family is really wanting to find, James Paul Combs born in 1927 in Dayton, Ohio. The family story is that he showed up one day around Easter, dropped off an Easter basket and said that he and his girlfriend would stop back by after a trip to Louisville, Ky. I am assuming that he was living in Dayton with his mom, Nannie and her husband Kendrick at least 1944 when Kendrick died...he would have been 27. I don't know when his mom moved back to Ky but I know that she is buried in Jeffersonville, Ky

I wish I could assist you but I have no information on the family other than what was in the obituary. I cannot explain why the other people were not mentioned. Best of luck finding the information you need. Have a nice afternoon.
