Addendum Transcribed by Jack Martin :
1840 Census Perry Co KY page 261, line 5 HH of Elisa Morgan:
female age 20-30, with one son age under 5.
Line 2 shows William Morgan, line 6 shows Abel Morgan, and line 7 shows Jefse Morgan,
NOTE: Eliza Combs married Zachariah Morgan (2) in Perry Co., KY in 1836. Zachariah Morgan is listed as deceased in his father Zachariah Morgan's will of 10 Apr 1841 in Clay Co., KY.

20 Jul 1840 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) William Combs & [Lethe BEGLEY or Hannah?]

Notes: The 1850 Perry Co., KY Census includes two William Combs who "might fit" this marriage: (1) District 1, 194-202, William Combs, 27, Lethe, 24 F KY, with eldest child in HH age 3, and Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics of 03 Jul 1853 and 06 Nov 1855, document that Lethe was neè BEGLEY; and (2) District 2, 128-138 William and Hanah Combs, 25 and 28 years of age respectively, with eldest child in HH age 6. In the first instance, a seven year gap would have occurred between marriage date and birth of first child; and in second instance, the gap would have been about four years and the groom only 15 years of age at time of marriage. A third William, William L. Combs, husband of Margaret KELLY, appears to have been more likely to have been the 1836 Perry Co., KY marriage. And, of course, this William Combs may have not been on the 1850 Perry Co., KY census at all.
24 Jul 1840 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) Hardin OWENS married [Louisa-Levisa Combs?]

Notes: 15 Jul 1852 Perry Co., KY Records confirm marriage of a Hardin OWENS to a Louisa [sic] Combs; however, no Hardin and Louisa are found in 1850 Perry Co., KY Census in same household, although District 2 includes a Levisa OWENS, age 29, who is listed adjacent to the HH of a Hardin OWENS, age 69. Possibly a father in law? Possibly separated? No OWENS were on either the 1840 Perry or Breathitt Co, KY Census enumerations.
1841-1849 Kentucky Land Grant Surveys [not yet entered]
20 Jan 1841(Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) Samuel Combs married [Eliza Combs?]

Notes: Possibly the Samuel & Eliza Combs Combs of the 1860 Perry Co, KY Census (missing in 1850?) whose eldest child was son, James, born ca 1843. The 14 Mar 1915 Perry Co, KY death certificate of their son, Elhannon S. Combs documents his parents' names.
19 Dec 1841 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) Alexander Combs married [Mary BRASHEARS?]

Notes: 1850 Perry Co., KY Census lists in
  1. District 2, 013-014, Alexander S. Combs, 25 and Polly, 23, with child, Silas, age3; and in
  2. District 2, 180-197, Alexander Combs, 34, and Mary, 27, with eldest child, Almira, age 5.
Perry Co., KY Records for 06 Jul 1853, 05 May 1858 and the 1870 Perry Co., KY Census, Hazard Precinct,#9, indicate that the second Alexander Combs married Mary BRASHEARS. See 18 Mar 1846 for Alexander and Polly Combs Combs' marriage; and see Two Alexander Combs of Perry and 1850 records for additional detail. Alexander, husband of Mary BRASHEAR, was the son of "Squire" Nicholas "Birdeye" Combs, Jr. & Elizabeth Combs.

1 Mar 1842 Perry Co, KY Groom's Index. Samuel NAPIER married [Susan ????]

Notes: According to The Combes Genealogy, Samuel NAPIER'S wife was neè Susan Combs and the daughter of Washington& Sallie WHITTAKER Combs. See 1850 Perry Co., KY Census District 2, 5-5,which lists Samuel NAPIER, 31, and Susan, 21. Seeking documentation of her maiden name and marriage.
30 Mar 1842 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) Wiley Combs married [????]

Notes: This is neither Wiley Combs of Perry who married Mary "Polly" FIELDS in 1851 in Carter Co., KY (and see Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics - Birth Records, dated 01-09-1852), nor Wiley Combs of Breathitt who married Elizabeth Jane Combs... Research in progress .
04 Aug 1842 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) Robert Combs married [Eliza Combs?]

Notes: Robert C. Combs (son of Samuel & Nancy CORNETT Combs per the Combes Genealogy, not yet documented) married Eliza Combs (daughter of Jeremiah C. "Chunky" and Synthia SUMNER Combs) based on (1) the age of their eldest children in 1850 Perry Co., KY Census (District 2, 17-18); (2) 1851-1859 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics; and (3) 1853 - 1854 Perry Co., KY will and estate records for her father.
1843 Died: Jeremiah L. Combs, Sr., husband of Nancy (Combs?) & Sarah WHITELEY. According to The Combes Genealogy, Jeremiah is buried "in an old, deserted graveyard among the trees, on the point above Rob MORGAN'S house. The stone bears the date, 1843, and "J. Combs".
4 Apr 1843. (Perry Co, KY DBB:287) Austin C. GODSEY, deputy sheriff of PC to Jackson G. Combs of PC. This instrument mentions a suit against the estate of John L. Combs, Biram Combs, and James M. HUNDLEY for $91. Biram Combs, and James M. HUNDLEY had given a bond for an estate [unnamed]. Court ordered thesale of a tract of land (50a) at public auction…land on line fork adjacent land of Samuel LUSK adjacent RIPPEE survey… (Sue Elfving)

6 Nov 1844-6 Nov 1844 (Perry Co, KY DBB:333-4) Jackson G. Combs and wife Patsy to William and John LUSK, all of PC, 2 tracts (45a, & 50a) for $350, land on the waters of Line Fork adjacent to the end of James RIPPE'S plantation. (Abstracted by Sue Elfving from microfilm copies of originals)

SE Note: In my notes, I wrote that after rereading this instrument, I believed that John L. really referred to Jeremiah L. "Long" Combs, Sr. (as versus his son, John L. who may be the above) and that all three men stood security and owed Jonathan R. BROWN. This deed is very confusing and full transcription needs to be read and studied. Also note that on the 1820 Clay Co, KY census that Shadrach Combs I was listed immediately between the above Samuel LUSK and James RIPPEE.
02 Apr 1843 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) Joseph Combs married [Delilah Combs?]

09 Mar 1843 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) S. P. Combs married [????]

Notes: No adult male Combs with first initial S found in 1850 Perry Co., KY Census as HH (additional records still to be checked) other than Stephen Combs with long-time wife, Martha "Patsy" FRANCIS; however, could this be marriage of Sira and Polly CAUDELL/ROBERTS Combs of 1850 Breathitt Co., KY? Or could this be a G. P. and the first (?) marriage of Granville Pearl Combs who married in 1847 in Perry Co., KY to Marinda BRASHEAR?
20 Oct 1843 (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index) A. C. GODSEY married [Marian (Mary Ann) Combs]

Notes: Austin C. GODSEY married Mary Ann Combs (1850 Perry Co., KY Census, District 2,001-001 (eldest child in HH is 7 years of age), and 17 May 1853 Perry Co KY Records)

In 1860, Perry Co., KY Census, Serena McINTOSH, 33, is living in HH of Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs, Jr.and children listed include Nancy A. Combs [sic], 14. According to The Combes Genealogy, Sarena Combs, daughter of Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs, Jr., married William WOOTEN [sic]. If so, the marriage apparently took place after 1860.

Is this the Hysekiah Combs, named in the RW Pension Application of John "8" Combs asthe child of his daughter, MargaretCombs (never married per Dickey Diary Interview of Margaret Combs Lewis)? If so, a very young marriage.

29 Jan 1847 Edward Combs married [?????]

Notes: This is not Edward Combs who married Martha POLLEY as that marriage is of record in Letcher Co., KY, dated 01 Mar 1849. Might it be Edwin [sic] and Sylvania HERALD whose eldest daughter was born 1847-1848 per the 1850 Breathitt Co., KY Census?

BRASHEARS guardianfor Masingill Combs, Clinton Combs, and Bonapart Combs, the infant heirs of Mason Combs decd. (Abstracted by Sue Elfving from microfilm)

Notes: The above are heirs of Mason "8" Combs, died by Jun 1822 (Perry Co., KY Court Minutes). It appears that this record, although dated 1848, includes an earlier record (the List of Heirs), which must have been dated after Tarlton Combs had come of age, but before his three younger brothers had come of age. Tarlton was born 1803-1804 per 1850-1870 Perry Co., KY census records, thus 18-19 years ofage when his father died. Of his three younger brothers, Massingill Martin was born 1805-1809; Clinton abt 1810; and Napoleon Bonaparte abt 1811. Based on these birth years, the earliest that the record of the List of Heirs could have been dated would have been about 1826, and the latest abt 1830 (Note that it is possibly significant that Mason's widow, Jane RICHARDSON Combs, was still alive in Jun 1830 (Perry census), yet not listed above, which may be significant since she 'disappears' after 1830). Also note that if Napoleon's Dickey Diary interview is correct, if there was a fifth daughter (Tabitha per The Combes Genealogy), she was either omitted erroneously from the list of heirs or deceased by 1830.

Sep 1849 Perry Co., KY US Census Mortality Schedule: Combs, Jackson D., male, born KY, died Sep [1849], age 33 [born ca 1816], Cause of death unknown. Occupation: Farmer. (Abstracted by Pat Osborn Orton)

Notes: Jackson D. Combs of the 1840 Perry Co., KY Census was listed as 30-39 years of age in 1840 Perry (born 1800-1810). An 1870 Perry Co. deed identifies Jackson D. Combs, deceased, as the heir of Sally D. Combs. She was married to William D. Combs aka William Combs Sr. per probate records for her father Mason "8" Combs's estate. An 1861 Perry Co. deed identifies Reen Combs as the widow of Jackson. She is later shown as Serena and Lurena Combs. Jackson D. Combs is not identified in The Combes Genealogy, although one reference in Chapter XXII, General Table, page 146, seems to indicate some confusion may have existed between Jackson G. and Jackson D. Initials can be difficult to read correctly in old records.
