Santa Barbara was the original county established in 1850 after the California Gold Rush.

Man's Body Found On Gaynor Ranch
The badly decomposed body of Asa Z.(Zibina] COMBS, 62, was found this morning in a car parked behind the house in which he resided on the Gaynor ranch, a half mile north of La Conchita on the Rincon, the sheriff's office reported.
COMBS had been dead about two weeks, according to Deputy Coroner Pat Sullivan, who listed the death as a suicide resulting from carbon monoxide poisonling. (According to a descendent, Asa had his hands tied behind his back when found)
Capt. Howard Bowman of the sheriff's said the body was discovered in the closed auto about 9 a.m. today by Fernando Ramirez, forman for Stacy Bates who leased the ranch for cattle grazing. The exhaust pipe of the auto had been connected into the trunk of the auto, and the auto switch was on, Bowman said.
Sullivan said no notes were found, but his office is inspecting letters found in the house for a possible reason for the death. COMBS as a former wife [Norma Dahl] and two daughters residing in Santa Barbara, Sullivan reported.
Transcribed by Birdie McNutt from Newspaper clipping sent to me by David Bronson.
Note: Asa Zibina COMBS was the son of Albert Grant COMBS & his first wife Cecilie BRONSON, and grandson of Peter Anderson COMBS of Kay Co., OK, Gibson Co., IN and Posey Co., IN. Asa was an excellant fiddler player and Carpenter by trade. He was the half brother of my grandmother Birdie Lorena COMBS HOISINGTON.
