Vermilion County was formed in 1824.


1860 Vermilion Co, IL Census

1870 Vermilion Co, IL Census

BUTLER Township

Grant PO, 20 June 1870, p. 21/2

hh 12/12 BRATTON Charles 43 m Farmer RE=$4800 PP=$1005 IN
Malinda 40 f Keeping House IN
Tillman 21 m Working at Home IN
Combs Asa 24 m Farmer PP=$225 IN

SE Note: Although not found in 1860, this group of Combs in Butler Twp. appear to be the family of Elias Combs of Hendricks Co, IN. If so, could the Malinda BRATTON possibly be the Malinda Combs, age 20, in the 1850 Hendricks Co, IN. household of Enoch and Elenor KOOCH. Solomon, brother to Allen and Levi not found in Vermilion Co, IL in 1870 but may be the same as Soloman Combs, age 39, in the Evan, Kingman Co, KS 1880 census (not yet transcribed).

hh 13/13 Combs Allen 33 m farmer RE=$2000 PP=$700 IN
Rachel 28 f Keeping House IN
Elley 4 f IL
Ordella 1 f IL
LEGGET Ellen 20 f domestic servant IN
GRUEBAUGH David 24 m farmer PP=$200 IN

SE Note: Appears to be Allen Combs, son of Elias Combs of Hendricks Co, IN

16/16 Combs Levi 35 m Farmer RE=$4000 PP=$1410 IN
Mary 29 f Keeping House IN
Charles 5 m IL
Lucinda 3 f IL

SE Note: Appears to be Levi Combs, son of Elias Combs of Hendricks Co, IN

COMBS, Levi Thomas b: 13 SEP 1836 d: 1 SEP 1914 in ?, buried in Prairie Chapel - killed by runaway Dray during funeral arrangements for Francis (Source: Ancestry.com, Vermilion County Database)

COMBS, Francis Marion b: 4 APR 1871 in Waynetown, IN d: 21 APR 1913 in ? buried in Prairie Chapel, Vermilion Co, IL, died of poison ivy smoke (Source: Ancestry.com, Vermilion County Database)

17/17 SANDERS David 50 m Blacksmith PP=$200 OH
Lydia 44 f Keeping House KY [Lydia Combs]
Rebecca 19 f At Home IN
Hyen [sp?] 16 m At Home IN
James 13 m At Home IN
Jonathan 11 m IN
Sarah 8 f IL
Rosanna 6 f IL
Thomas 2 m IL

SE Note: David SANDERS family living next door to Levi Combs (son of Elias Combs). Appears to be Lydia Combs who married David SANDERS 6 Sept. 1849 in Hendricks Co, IN. Perhaps related (a possible daughter?) to Elias who also shows a daughter named Rebecca in his 1850 Hendricks Co, IN household. This couple previously found in Monroe Twp, Morgan Co, IN. in 1850. Could this family be the same as that of Dana SANDERS of the 1880 Afton, Sedgwick Co, KS census (not yet transcribed)? Only the initials and ages are listed for the children and they match fairly well; however, mother is not with family (perhaps deceased?) in 1880.
