Coombs scans

I’m still scanning old family photos. Here is my first cousin twice removed, Elijah Coombs (1891-1984) of Harbour Grace. He must have given this photo to my great-grandmother because the back reads: “To Aunt Bridge with best regards to all, Elijah”

And here he is again as an elderly man. My great-uncle Sandy had gone up to Newfoundland for a visit and brought back this snapshot.

L to R: Elijah Coombs (much older than the picture above), his cousin Alexander (son of Eli), and his wife Edith

I’m not sure who the woman inside the shed is – maybe their daughter?

  1. Thank you for the photo, I am a great grandson of the Coombs and my oldest son has Elijah as his middle name. We were in Harbour Grace recently and my son asked where his grave was; I took him to the cemetary and we visited their grave site.
    He did do some research for Elijah and through the veterans affairs web site. However, I never seen the photo of EPop while in service.
    If you should have any more photos can you please post them?
    Thank you

    • Hi Anthony – If I find more photos I will surely post them. These were found among my late mother’s papers, and I think they were previously my grandmother’s; the military photo was addressed to my great-grandmother. So I don’t know how many more will turn up.
