Biographical information

Simrall Anderson Coombs Sr. (1918-1994) is the son of Joseph Coombs and Clara Huber.

Design rationale

Design represents a melding of British (ermine with three lions passant gules) and Irish coats of arms (sable with chevron argent and three 'combs' or disbursed) associated with persons of the same surname. Design indicates influence of Scottish lineage for "Anderson" (Argent with three crosses crosslet disbursed). Additionally, the original lions passant have been replaced with lions rampant indicating Scottish heritage. Armiger's family has been a member of the "Society of Saint Andrews" and family motto is adopted from the Anderson motto "Stand Sure"
