Funeral services will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday at the City Temple Presbyterian Church. Dr. Harry Sarles and Dr. Floyd Poe will officiate.

He finished public schools in Dallas and received his law degree fro the University of Texas in 1922. He practiced law in Dallas since his admission to the bar.
McCombs had been a member of the City Temple Presbyterian Church since 1907. He was chairman of the board of trustees and would have been installed as an elder next Sunday. He was also chairman of the church's centennial observance committee for 1950 and was a member of the executive board of the Reynolds Presbyterian Home.
He served Dallas in the Thirty-ninth, Fortieth and Forty-first Legislatures, back in the 1920's. He was a Democratic elector in 1932.
McCombs ran for chairman of the Dallas County Democratic Executive Committee in 1944. The race ended in a notable court fight. McCombs got 8,079 votes to W. S. Bramlett's 6,682 in the runoff election. But Bramlett had led the field of three candidates in the first election and argued that there should have been no runoff. He contended that the office, a party office, did not come under the order specifying runoff elections for county offices. The
court ruled for Bramlett.
McCombs was vice-president and general counsel of the Paramount Fire Insurance Company of New York and a member of the Federation of Insurance Counselors and the Mortgage Bankers Association.
For eight years, he served as Nicaraguan consul at Dallas.
McComb's hobby was the study of Civil War history. He was a member of the Civil War Roundtable of Chicago and delivered a paper at the roundtable's 1949 meeting about Confederate recapture of Galveston. His interest in history also was reflected in his memberships in the Texas State Historical Association and the Texas Folklore Society.

McCombs is survived by his wife; his mother, Mrs. O. A. McCombs, and a sister, Mrs. D. Olive Waterstreet, all of Dallas.

Came on First Train.
In the passing Mrs. McCammon Corsicana loses another pioneer and
much beloved woman. She was born in Gastonburg, Ala., Dec. 13, 1847,
and was married to the late James Monroe McCammon in that city in
1867. They came to Corsicana on the first passenger train that
entered this city over the Houston and Texas Central railroad, which
was the first road to build to Corsicana, Nov. 21, 1871, and with
the exception of a short time spent at Kerens, she has resided in
this city continuously since, and her unfailing kindness and
interest in her neighbors and friends had endeared herself to a wide
circle of Corsicana's citizenship.
Mrs. McCammon was greatly beloved by all old-time residents of this
city who knew her through life, and her kindly interest in young
people had also made hosts of close personal friends among the younger
She was deeply interested in the
affairs of her city, state and nation,
and up until the time was too
ill to read and take such interest
she kept abreast of the times and
was interested in the news of the
day. She also kept up with her
friends, both among the elderly and
the young people, and her kindly
interest in all matters of a civic nature
and the things that counted
for the betterment of her fellow
man was an outstanding feature of
her long and fruitful life.
She was a woman that did a
great deal of unheralded and unknown
good. Deeds of charity, acts
of kindness and words of comfort
were scattered throughout her life
in Corsicana, and many there are
who could testify to her ministrations
that the general public knows nothing of. Truly it can be said
that a real mother in Israel has
passed to a well earned reward.
