Surnames: Combs,Hoppers,Hopperas
Researching family of Caroline Combs, b 1840 in North Carolina either Wilkes or Allegheny county. Have some information on her children Jacob, Henry, Wiley, Isom, Robey and Nancy. Need info on her and her parents. The father of the above children was Jacob Hoppers or Hopperas. It appears that he and Caroline were never married.

Her son Wiley married Mary Caudill, Jacob married Rosa Crouse. Have no info on other children other than birth dates.

Any help would be appreciated.

I didn't have Wiley's lineage so thank you for getting this back at least one more generation for me.

Mary was daughter of James "Harrison" Caudill.

Is it a documented fact that Jacob Hoppers was the father?

This Caroline Combs could be your Caroline or perhaps married daughter of Joseph Blevins? Just dug around for a few minutes so maybe nothing new here for you. That she lives next to Wm. Combs certainly is curious!

Alleghany wasn't formed until 1859 as I recall. Try the 1860 Wilkes Census: Traphill. Image 31 of 199: 1860; Census Place: Lower Division, Wilkes, North Carolina; Roll: M653_918; Page: 16; Image: 33.
Joseph Blevins 60 + Nancy Blevins 60 + Mary Blevins 35 + Alvis Blevins 25 + Eli Blevins 22 + Nancy Blevins 6 + Alvis Blevins 3 + Caroline Combs 23 + Nancy J Combs 1.12

Living next to
William Combs 56 + Libey Combs 58 + Harrison Combs 21 + Milly Combs 18 + Meridith Combs 15 + Miry Combs 12.

This Caroline Combs is my ancestor and she had a brother named Harrison, who had a son Joe. This is the information that I have. I know the dates don't exactly match, but have found in my research that what we think we know as fact, sometimes isn't exactly correct. Let me know if you think that these people might be from your family!
Thanks!
