A number of early published reports exist in regard to Enoch Combs and his descendants; however, most do not include any sources, and the few records located thus far have been insufficient to document this line.
Among those published reports is the following, submitted by Fanny Combs (b bef 1899), widow of Ignatius Pike Goff, and published in 1938 in the Register of Maryland's Heraldic Families:
