The family stone is very clear, "strangers tread lightly on this spot" Randy and his brother Chris found the graves on April 22, 2017 and describe the location as follows: "The burial site's physical address is 2926 Becknerville.  Please ask the owners for permission to enter.  1.1 miles north of Water Works Road (KY 1923).  East side of road 100 feet in.  200 feet south of house and barn.  Wood fence about 20 x 20 feet, with a collapsed rock wall."

Samuel Combs of Clarke county was killed a day or two since in a rencontre with a man in the streets of Winchester, the county seat. Capt. C. was an early and respected citizen of this State. He migrated here in times that tried the settler's courage and bore a conspicuous part."
Kentucky Gazette, October 5, 1833

"Winchester, Oct. 1
This morning about 8 o'clock, an unfortunate rencounter took place before the Court House door, between Samuel R. Combs and sons against two of the Bushes (sons of Ambrose), which terminated in the death of Samuel R. Combs, sen. His head was nearly separated from his body, the main artery being entirely separated. Combs had shot a man named Nelson the day previous with a pistol and was in custody of the Sheriff, and the Bushes were summoned as a guard. He died in about 30 minutes or less after he received the cut."
Lexington Observer & Kentucky Reporter, October 3, 1833

'On October 1, 1833, Samuel R. Combs was brutally murdered by a young member of the neighboring Bush family. After his "throat had been cut from ear to ear, he called bystanders to come and see a brave man die. He lived only a few minutes, but long enough to dictate his will by holding his severed windpipe with his own hand."'
