Jan 1850 Perry Co, KY Mortality Schedule. Nancy Combs, Female, age 96 [born ca 1754], born VA, married, died January 1850, following a 30 day illness. Cause of death: cold (Researcher Martin Combs)

Notes: Nancy GRIGSBY, wife of "Danger" Nicholas "8" Combs, Sr.
January 1850 Perry Co, KY Deeds. Nicholas Combs, Jr & Betsy Combs, his wife, who hereby relinquishes her right of dower in and to the lands conveyed in this deed...." (Combs Researcher Martin G. H. Combs)

Notes: Nicholas Combs, Jr. (son of Nicholas "8" & Nancy GRIGSBY Combs, Sr.) married Elizabeth Combs (daughter of RW John "8" & Margaret Combs)
29 Jun 1850-29 Jun 1850 (Perry Co, KY Deed Book BC:78-9) Lorenzy D. SMITH of Perry Co. to Nancy Combs, wife of George Combs and the heirs of her body that she had by George Combs, 200a on Coots Br. in Perry Co. (Abstracted by Combs Researcher Sue Elfving from microfilm copy of original)

Notes: Nancy SMITH, daughter of Rev. Richard & Elitia Combs Smith, and wife of George Combs, son of Henry "8" and Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr. Questions: Did either Nancy or George have children other than together? Might the reference be to a MARTIN child from her possible earlier marriage? Why was deed to Nancy rather than George? (George has not been located in 1860, but Nancy may have been in Perry County HH of her brother, Joshua SMITH.) See also 1836 Perry Records.
9 July 1850 (PC-DBD:45). This Indenture entered into this 9th day of July 1850 between Jeremiah C. Combs, Nicholas Combs Jr., and Samuel Combs Sr., sons of Nicholas Combs Sr., agree & bind ourselves jointly and severally, firmly by this presents, that thirty or forty years ago, that Nicholas Combs Sr. swapped a Negro man slave by the name of Rolle to John GRIGSBY of the State of Tennessee, for woman by the name of Crease, and Jeremiah C. Combs when the exchange was made by Nicholas Combs, Sr., and John GRIGSBY, Jeremiah C. Combs went into Tennessee, and brought the said Negro Crease out to Nicholas Combs, Sr., and the Bill of Sale that was made to Nicholas Combs, Sr., has been lost or mislaid, so that it cannot be found and some doubts have arisen between as heirs of Nicholas Combs Sr., whether the Bill Sale was made in the name of Jeremiah C. Combs as he went after the Negro, or Nicholas Combs, only as there is Nicholas Combs, Sr., and Nicholas Combs, Jr., one of us, one of the heirs And we jointly agree that after the death of Nicholas Combs, Sr., that if the Billy Sale is found that it is to be null and void between us, and we further agree and bind ourselves to each other, that every way that the said Nicholas Combs has disposed with the said female Negro, Crease and her increase away, as is to stand firm and unaltered forever. Signed Nicholas Combs Jr., Jeremiah C. Combs, Samuel x Combs Sr.
Attest: Jesse Combs, Samuel Combs Jr.
Acknowledged by parties 9 July 1850.
(Transcribed by Sue Elfving; See notation on the Deed Book D above.

SE Notes: The instrument was labelled by the Clerk as an Agreement between Nicholas Combs Sr. and his sons. This deed is important as it is one more record that attests to the fact that Nicholas "8" Combs Sr. aka "Danger Nick" was still alive in 1850. It may provide a clue to Nancy GRIGSBY Combs' s family. The John GRIGSBY in Tennessee, perhaps a contemporary of Nicholas or even older, may have been a close relative. It indicates Jeremiah travelled back to Tennessee between 1810-1820.
1850 US Census, Perry Co., KY Transcribed by Combs Researchers Louise Gaskill and C. Hammet from copies of original census as published by S-K Publications) See Also Louise Gaskill's NEW and GREATLY IMPROVED (accurate) 1850 Perry Co KY Census. Important! The following is a newly-transcribed, newly-proofed 1850 Perry Co KY Census enumeration (21 Jul 1998)

Transcriber Abbreviations:
* = married within the census year (ended 01 Jun 1850)
- = over 20 years of age and cannot read or write
+ = attended schoolwithin census year

Reminders: (1) The 1850 US Census did not designate relationships; thus an adult man and woman in a household could conceivably be no relation at all; likewise,any children in the dwelling/family. (2) Nevertheless, as a "general rule of thumb," a man and woman and children in descending birth order usuallydenotes a "family." When, however, the children are listed "out of ageorder," this is often an indication that the "out of age order" children (listed below those children in descending age order) were not children of the man and wife listed on first two lines (nieces, nephews, cousins,no relation, etc.). (3) Each entry consists of 2 numbers, the first the dwelling (in order of visitation) and the second the family (in order ofvisitation). These numbers differ when more than one family resided ina single dwelling, and can provide further clues to familial relationships. Example: District 2, Dwelling 12, Families 12 and 13 below. (4) The census enumerator for District 1, John W. Remine, not only had atrocious handwriting, but may have also been dyslexic. Most certainly, he had a problem with line entries. Example: District 1, 003-003, HH of Ira Combs, shows that Ira could read and write, but that his wife, Cinda, age 26, and their daughter, Lavina, age 9 could not. Numerous examples of this appear in this district, and it appears clear that he did not intend to mark a 9 year old (underage 21) as illiterate, but had dropped down one line. This is also seen with Dwelling Numbers whereby the one year old infant in (what was obviously) the preceding Dwelling became the head of household for the following dwelling; or, conversely, the female on the following line). In those instances,we have self-admittedly "corrected" the census taker.Mea Culpa. LG and CH.

District 1

001-001 William GULLETT - 29 M Farmer $400
Ann - 29 F
Elisa 5 F
Minerva 4 F
Henry C. 2 M

Notes: William GULLETT married 08 Aug 1844, Perry Co., KY, Ann Combs, daughter of Henry & Nancy BROWN Combs, Jr. (18 Feb 1857, Perry KY DBC: 458 and Perry Co., KY Groom's Index). Not identified by The Combes Genealogy. This record did not include birth state(s). Corrected: Earlier transcription indicated surname GILETTE, Elisa as Eliza, and listed value of $100.

003-003 Ira Combs 26 M Farmer $250
[Farmer & 250 were on the line for Cinda's occupation]
Cinda Marella - 26 F
Lavina - 9 F
Elvira 8 F
John 5 M
Andrew 4 M
Ira 1/12 M *

Notes: Ira Combs and Lucinda Marella STACY (25 Aug 1852 Perry KY Vital Statistics) 1860 Perry Co., KY Census. Also Note: This is an instance where it appears that the census enumerator "dropped a line down," including literacy. The lack of literacy of one month old Ira Combs was probably meant for John COUCH in 004-004 (Next below.) This record does not include birth state(s). Not identified in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed "Cinde" rather than "Cinda Marilla;" and "Lavissa" rather than Lavina.

004-004 John COUCH - 38 M VA Farmer $400
Rachel - 27F KY
Polly 10 F
Henry 9 M
Nancy 7 F
Mathias 6 M
Ezekiel 3 M
Alfred 1 M

Notes: John COUCH married 22 Apr 1837, Perry Co., KY, Rachel Combs, daughter of Henry & Nancy BROWN Combs, Jr. (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index and 01/15 Sep 1853 & 18 Feb 1857 Perry Co., KY Records). Not identified in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription spelled Ezekial, not Ezekial; and Matthias, not Mathias. Birth locations for children not included, but may have all been KY (with no "Ditto" added).

006-006 Bluford Combs - 24 M Farmer [No value listed]
Winney - 25 F
William 4 M
Elizabeth 1 F

Notes: Bluford Combs married 25 Feb 1846, Perry Co., KY, Winney Combs (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index and Vital Statistics, dated 07-22-1853). See Also Breathitt Co., KY Vital Statistics. No birth state listed, but may have been "Ditto" for KY for all. Bluford may have been deceased by 1860 when Winny C. Combs appears on 1860 Perry Co., KY Census with these children and more. Not found in 1870 yet. See 1880 Breathitt KY. Also note that Bluford and Buford are sometimes interchangeable and sometimes found as William B. Not identified in The Combes Genealogy. Is it possible that either Bluford or Winnifred was a daughter of Jeremiah Combs who follows?

007-007 Jeremiah Combs 62 M Farmer $200
Elizabeth -52 F VA
Evelina - 22 F KY
Ephraim 19 M KY Laborer
Polly 15 F KY
Ceily 1 F KY

Notes: Jeremiah C. "Curly" Combs married 29 May 1810, Clay Co., KY, Elizabeth "Betsy" Combs, daughter of Henry "8" and Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr. (1833 Perry Records and Dickey Diary Interview of Elizabeth's nephew, William M. Combs. According to The Combes Genealogy, Jeremiah's ancestry is unknown (He is referred to as Jeremiah Combs of "Lower Perry"). Not known if all of above children are theirs, and based on their marriage date, they probably had older children not in this household (perhaps on either side of him in the census?). Their only other documented child is Susan Combs, first wife of Felix Combs (District 02, 114-122.) Was Ceily their daughter, or the daughter of Polly? Was Polly wife of Ephraim or sister? If wife, which was the child of Jeremiah and Elizabeth, Ephraimor Polly? If Ephraim was, in fact, a son-in-law, was he Ephraim, son of Stephen and Martha Jane "Patsy" BROWN Combs (see 009-009 below)? Is Evalina, born ca 1828, the same as Ebeline [sic], age 21, who married Henry G. (or C.) Combs, apparent son of Stephen and Martha"Patsy" Combs, on 19 Mar 1854, Perry Co., KY (Henry and Evaline named a son, Jeremiah, in 1858 (Perry VS) and in 1860, they are on the Breathitt Co., KY census, Evoline, age 27, and a Celia, age 10 is also in HH (same as above?). Also Note: No birth state listed for Jeremiah, but may have been "ditto" for KY. Neither Jeremiah, nor Elizabeth, have been located in 1860 Perry, although Elizabeth may be the Betty, age 70, in HH 243-241. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed (1) Elizabeth as age 58, not 52; (2) Cecily rather than "Ceily;" (3) included no birth locations; nor (4) occupation for Ephraim. SW: Evalina, Celia, Mary

008-008 Margaret Combs - 31 F KY
Stephen 18 M KY Laborer

Notes: Who are the above Margaret & Stephen Combs? Siblings? Of whom? Could either or both be children of the above Jeremiah and Elizabeth? Or was Stephen, age 18, be the same as Stephen, age 22 in the 1850 Breathitt CoKY HH of Stephen and Martha Jane "Patsy" FRANCIS Combs (See next)? Neither Margaret nor Stephen are identified by The Combes Genealogy. See also Benjamin STACY, formerly of Perry, but later of Breathitt, who may have married a Margaret "Peggy" Combs and left her prior to 1850 to first live with, and later marry, Hannah YOUNG. Corrected: Earlier transcription did not include birth states.

010-010 Stephen Combs - 45 M KY Farmer $300
Francis - 45M KY
William 16 M KY Laborer
Jackson 15 M KY
Lucinda 13 F KY
James 11 M KY
Nancy 9 F KY
Wilson 4 M KY
Hugh 1 M KY

Notes: Stephen Combs, son of Henry & Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr. (Dickey Diary), married 22 Apr 1824 Perry Co., KY (Groom's Index), Martha "Patsy" FRANCIS (1937 Boyd Co., KY Death Certificate of son, Wilson). See Also 1850 Breathitt Co., KY Census, District No. 1, Dwelling 89 for duplicate (mostly) entry; except Breathitt lists (1) wife's name as Patsy; and (2) includes Ephraim, age 18 (Could the Ephraim of 1850 Breathitt in Stephen's household be the Ephraim, age 19, in Jeremiah's HH above?). Ephraim is not included in The Combes Genealogy (which apparently used only the 1850 Perry); (3) includes Stephen, age 22. Corrected: Earlier transcription did not include birth locations; value, or occupation for William; and listed "Francis" as "Patsy" (name of wife in 1850 Breathitt Co., KY Census).

011-011 Felix STACY, 23, M, Farmer, KY, * [Only Felix in 1850]
Cynthia, 23, F, KY,
Polly, 34, F, KY
John, 1, M, KY
Calvin STACY, 21, M, Laborer, KY,

SE NOTES: Now the above is not definite proof that Felix Sr. was the same as Downey. There is a 1838 Perry Co., Ky. Chancery Court case (where divorces were handled in those days) wherein Sally Stacy sued Felix Stacy (no other info available), and there is a Sally Stacy in the 1850 Perry Co., Ky. census. So maybe Sally was Felix's wife. See HH 015-016 below, and also see any discussion of Downey Stacy in the archives.

012-012 Lucy YOUNG - 45 F VA
Chany - 25 F KY.
Polly 17 F KY
Nathan 16 M VA.
Mahulda 15 F VA
James 13 M VA
William 11 M VA
Larkin 9 M VA
Louisa 8 F VA
John 7 M VA

13 William FIELDS, 9, M, KY
James TOLER, 3, M, KY
John, 1, M, KY

Notes: Lucy was neè FIELDS, and mother of Henry & Chaney FIELDS who were her natural children by Henry Combs, Jr., son of Henry & Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr. Henry FIELDS later went to court in Perry Co., KY where he successfully gained recognition as son of Henry Combs, Jr. See also 1851 Perry Co., KY record of Lucy FIELDS. She had married Nathan YOUNG, Sr., by 1833 when their daughter, Polly YOUNG, was born. (Combs Researcher Tim Spence) The children in 13 were those of Chaney FIELDS (Combs Researcher Debi Kendrick and see 1880 Owsley Co., KY Census). Not identified in The Combs Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed "Mahalaa" instead of "Mahulda (?);" "Chany"as "Chaney;" included no birth states for children; did not indicate that William FIELDS and James TOLER were in same dwelling, and omitted John, age 1, entirely.

015-016 Sally STACY, 40, F, KY,
Benjamine, 16, M, Laborer, KY
Elisha, 19, F, KY
Felix, 4, M, KY

NOTE: See HH 011-011 above.

018-019 Ira COUCH - 25 M Farmer 250 KY
Perminia - 23 F KY
Couch 12 M KY
Eli 9 M KY
Wiley 7 F Ky
Jane or Janie 6 F KY
Abigal 3 F KY

Notes: Perminia Combs, daughter of Henry & Nancy BROWN Combs, Jr., married Ira COUCH, 01 Feb 1840, Perry Co., KY (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index, and Perry Co., KY Records dated 18 Feb 1857 (Perry KY DBC:458); and/or 23 Jan 1845, Perry Co., KY, Perminia Combs married Silas [sic] COUCH (Perry Co., KY Groom's Index and Perry Co., KY Records dated 07 Aug 1854, 27 Mar 1856. Pending 1860 Perry Co., KY Census, not known if Silas and Ira were one and the same, although it appears likely. It appears unlikely, however, based on their ages, that Couch was a son of Ira and/or Perminia, raising question as to whether any of these children in this HH were those of Ira and Perminia? It also appears unlikely that his name was Couch COUCH. Could he have been Couch Combs? If so, were any/all of the children who follow also Combs? Not identified in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) did not include birth states; (2) "Couch 12 M" was listed as "Cecelia 12 F;" and (3) "Abigal 3 F" was listed as "Abijah 3 M."

022-023 William McINTOSH 29 M KY [$200?]
Syrina - 22 F KY
Nancy 4 F KY
Elizabeth 2 F KY
John 2/12 (or 7/12?) M Ky

Notes: Syrena-Sarena may have been neè Combs, possibly daighter of Squire Nicholas "Birdeye" Combs & Elizabeth Combs (See 1860 Perry Co., KY census HH). See also 07 Nov 1852 Perry Co., KY record for William and Susan [sic] Combs McIntosh and 12 Jan 1844 Perry Co., KY marriage record for William McINTOSH. The Combes Genealogy states that Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs, Jr. had a daughter named Sarena, but show her married to a William WOOTEN. She appears to be a widow in the 1860 Perry Co., KY Census HH of Nicholas and Elizabeth (her parents?) Did she subsequently marry a WOOTEN? Corrected: Earlier transcription included no birth states; listed Syrina as "Sarena."

85-93 Elijah BEGLEY 22 F[?], KY
Mary, 16, M[?], KY

Notes: According to The Combes Genealogy, Mary Combs, daughter of Samuel and Nancy CORNETT Combs, married Elijah R. BEGLEY; however, 6 Sep 1852 Perry Co., KY VS lists Elijah BEGLEY and Nancy [sic] Combs as parents of Elijah BEGLEY (Jr.).

090-098 Henry Combs - 53 M TN Farmer $2000
Nancy - 53 F NC
Wiley - 24 M NC
Hugh - 22 M NC
William 15 M NC
Nancy FRANCIS 15 F NC

Notes: Henry Combs, Jr. (son of Henry & Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr.), married Nancy BROWN 11 Mar 1816, Clay Co., KY. The above Hugh Combs is apparently the same who had married by 08-07-1852 the above Nancy FRANCIS (Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics.) See also 18 Feb 1857 Perry Co., KY DBC:458 documenting children. The 1860 Perry KY Census lists Nancy BROWN Combs in home of son Hugh Combs, as age 64, born SC [sic], and she is also in Hugh's 1870 Perry KYHH. Only the above three children are listed in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier Transcription listed Nancy as Nancy A., and included no birth states for children.

146-154 William Combs 44 M KY Farmer 200
Elizabeth 40 F KY
Malinda 19 F KY
Franklin 17 M KY
Larkin 15 M KY
Rebecca 13 F KY
Armina 11 F KY
Jesse 9 M KY
Ana 7 F KY
Jesse 5 M KY
Mary 3 F KY

Notes: Possibly the same William Combs who married 17 Jul 1832, Perry Co., KY, although a late start, if so. Also note presence of two male children named Jesse, which may indicate second family in this dwelling. Not identified in The Combes Genealogy, although mentioned in Chapter X, p. 92. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Malinda as 18; Armina as "America;" and included no birth states. William and his wife aremissing for the years 1860 & 1870. In 1880, they are found living with their son Edward COMBS in Pulaski Co., Kentucky.

147-155 Granville Combs 28 M KY Farmer $500(?)
Marinda 22 F KY
Robert 8 (or18?) M KY
Elizabeth 1 F KY*
James STACY - 24 M KY
William OWENS - 28 M KY Farmer
Frances - 27 M KY
John 21 M KY
Jane 10 F KY
Wane 9 F KY

*The entry for Elizabeth 1 F KY shows the name, James, lined out and replaced with Elizabeth.

Notes: Granville Pearl Combs, son of Nicholas & Elizabeth Combs Combs(Dickey Diary), married (1) Marinda (a.k.a. Miranda) BRESHEARS, daughter of Robert S. and Mary "Polly: EVERAGE Breshears (Perry Co., KY Records, 13 Jun 1852 and Pension File of RW William CORNETT); and (2) Alice "Elsie Dutch" Combs, widow of Joseph DAVIDSON (1914 Perry KY Obituary), and daughter of Jesse and Polly BOLLING Combs (1914 Perry KY DC). If, however, he is same who married 14 Apr 1847 Perry Co., KY, then who was above Robert Combs, age 8? According to The Combes Genealogy, Granville Combs (son of Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs) married "Melinda Brashear (or Sallie Polly?); [and] Elsie ("Dutch"), dau. of Jesse Combs" with no indication of the reason for inclusion of Sallie POLLY. Could she have been mother of Robert? Also Note: Although Robert's age could be either 8 or 18, the 1860 Perry Co., KY Census HH 236-234 lists Robert as 18, thus probably 8 in 1850. See 1860, 1870 Perry Co., KY Census. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Granville as 25, not 28; Marinda as Malinda; Elizabeth as Jane Elizabeth; *William OWENS as 25, not 28; Jane as 19, not 10; "Wane 9 F" as Wilson 9 M;" and birth states not included.

155-163 Francis Combs - 34 M KY Farmer $500
Elizabeth - 34 F VA
Mathew + 10 M KY
Shadrick + 8 M KY
Daniel + 6 M KY
Rachel + 4 F KY
Franklin 2 M KY

Notes: Francis "Frank" Combs, son of Henry & Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr. According to Dickey Diary Interview of William M. Combs, "... Frank married Bettie OLIVER first, second Polly COUCH, lived and died in Perry … " Note also, however, the 05 Mar 1855 Perry Co., KY record of a Francis & Polly HOLLIDAY Combs. Was Polly neè COUCH or might she have been HOLLIDAY? Bettie and family are found on the 1860 Lawrence Co., KY Census and in 1880. Elizabeth is living with son Franklin in the Breathitt Co., KY. According to The Combes Genealogy, Chapter XXII, p. 145, Frank married (2) a Polly CROUCH [sic]. On p. 149 are listed only the above children, excepting Shadrach. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed no birth state for Francis; Mathew as "Matthew;" Shadrach instead of Shadrick, and no birth states for four youngest children. Francis is in the 1880 Perry Co., KY Census with Polly. Further research is needed to determine if there was a divorce and a second marriage to Polly Couch.

175-183 Joseph EVERSOLE - 50 M NC Farmer $225
Rettie - 46 F Va.
Lucy - 21 F KY
Wilson 18 M KY

Notes: William EVERSOLE married Jane Combs, daughter of Henry & Nancy Ann BROWN Combs, Jr. (See 04-20-1852 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics and 18 Feb 1857 Perry Co., KY DBC:458) Also Note: The census taker appears to have "dropped a line" since Robert, 6 mos of age would not old enough for the "illiteracy" category. It was probably William and Jane who could not read and write. Not listed in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Henderson as "Harrison or Henderson;" Elisha as "Elihu;" and included no birth states for last 6 individuals.

194-202 William Combs - 27 M KY Farmer $700
Lethe - 24 F KY
Henry 3 M KY
Jasper 1 M KY

Notes: William Combs married (1) Litha Ann BEGLEY (Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics, dated 03 Jul 1853 and 06 Nov 1855); married (2) Mary P. (HERNDON? BURK?) (1860 Owsley Co., KY Census). This may also be the William Combs who married 20 Jul 1840 Perry Co., KY; however, if so, a 7-year wait occurred before children started happening? According to The Combes Genealogy, William was the son of Samuel & Nancy Combs Cornett, and married (1) Mary [sic] BEGLEY; and (2) Mrs. Mary Herndon Burke. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Lethe as "Litha" and no birth states included.

218-226 John A. DUFF 48 M TN Farmer $12,000 (or $1000 or $1200?)

Notes: John A. DUFF was the son of Rev. Daniel DUFF and Nancy Ann ELLISON per the Dickey Diary Interview of Matilda DUFF Lewis who also stated that he married Mary "Polly" Combs (daughter of Elijah & Sally ROARK Combs, Sr.). The Perry Co., KY Groom's Index lists the 16 Jan 1823 marriage of John A. DUFF. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Shadrak as Shadrach with no occupation; and included no birth states for other than HH.

219-227 Henry FIELDS 23 M KY Farmer 100
Louisa 20 F KY
Mary 2 F KY

Notes: Henry FIELDS was the natural son of Henry Combs, Jr. (son of Henry & Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr.) and Lucy FIELDS Young according to later Perry Co., KY court records (See Lucy YOUNG'S HH above. He married Louisa Combs (06 Feb 1854 Perry Co., KY Records), who is said to have been daughter of Jesse and Polly BOLLING Combs, but source for her ancestry is unknown. Not included in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription did not include birth states.

220-228 Samuel Combs 30 M KY Farmer 200
Elisa - 31 F KY
MORGAN 12 M KY
Nicholas 3 M KY
Granville 2 M KY

Notes: Samuel Combs married Eliza Combs, daughter of George & Lydia HARRELL Combs, and widow of Zachariah MORGAN, by whom the above Washington MORGAN (who married 4 Oct 1859, Perry Co., KY, Sally CORNETT). Were Nicholas and Granville also MORGANS? See also 1859 Perry Co., KY Vital Stats (son, Nicholas born to Samuel Combs and Liza MORGAN). According to The Combes Genealogy (which confuses this family), this was Samuel "Black Sam" Combs, son of Nicholas Combs, Jr. and Elizabeth Combs. Corrected: Earlier transcription did not include birth states, listed all children as Combs.

013 William D. Combs - 60 M Unk.

Notes: Lurena Combs aka Reen Combs aka Serena Combs was the widow of Jackson D. Combs, born ca 1816, Kentucky, died Sep. 1849 per 1850 US Census Mortality Schedule, Perry Co., KY. In 1861, Reen Combs, widow of Jackson G [D] Combs, sold land to Harvey SIZEMORE. In 1870, the above six children are listed as heirs of Jackson D. Combs, deceased, and he is listed as an heir of Sally D. Combs. The old William D. Combs was the widowed husband of Sally Combs, daughter of Mason Combs. Also Note: According to Combs Researcher Jimmie "CrashedOne Combs," an annotated 1850 Perry Co. Ky census states that Lurena Combs was nee STACY (no source given) and adds that she appears in H/H 632 of the 1860 Perry Co., KY Census under Lorena STACY with Alexander, John, Virgil, and Mary all in her HH as STACYS, and Robert listed as a Combs with Hezekiah Combs in HH245. A look at the original 1860 census shows she was listed as Sorena STACY instead of Lorena. In 1870 and 1880, she was shown as Serena Combs. Also note that this family is not included in the General Table of The Combes Genealogy (although a William D. is referenced with a wife Vina on p. 65 as unidentified). William D. Combs is now identified. Probate records for the estate of Mason Combs clearly show William D. Combs to be the same as William Combs Sr. that married Mason's daughter Sally Combs Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) included no birth locations; (2) listed Elesaas Elisa; and (3) did not show that William D. was in same dwelling.

013-014 Alexander S. Combs - 25 M KY Farmer [no value listed]
Polly 23 F KY
Silas 3 M KY
Crittenden 2 M KY

Notes: This Alexander S. Combs was not Alexander Combs who married Mary "Polly" BRESHEARS, as has been stated by some researchers. This Alexander Combs married Polly Combs per the 11 Aug 1915 Perry Co., KY death certificate of son, Crittenden. This family is missing from the 1860 and 1870 Perry Census, but see 1880. See also Two Alexander and Mary (Polly) Combs of Perry Co., KY. Corrected: Not listed in The Combes Genealogy. Earlier transcription included no birth locations; Crittenden was spelled Crittendon.

014-015 Biram I. or S. [?] Combs - 32 M KY Farmer [no value listed]
Feribe 26 F KY
James 5 M KY
Jesse 3 M KY

Notes: Two Biram Combs married in 1836 in Perry Co., KY, not known which record is which, and this Biram seems young for either, plus large gap between marriage date and eldest child (The other Biram Combs, son of George and Lydia ARRELL Combs, married Mariah MESSER). Note also that this Biram has not yet been found in 1860. Nor is he listed (so far as we can tell) in the General Table of The Combes Genealogy (although Biram S. is referred to as an unidentified Combs on page 89). See also Biram "8" Combs of East KY which includes additional re other Biram Combs). Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) included no birth locations; (2) Feribe was spelled Fenbe; and (3) "James 5 M" was listed as "Jane 5 F."

Jesse - 22 M KY Farmer
Louisa - 19 F KY
Margaret + - 17 FKY

Notes: Widow of ? This family not found in General Table of The Combes Genealogy. Enumerator marked all four individuals as unable to read or write even though none of the children over 20 years in age, and even though he also listed Margaret (S.?) as having attended school within the census year. Not found in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) did not include birth locations; (2) Rachael was spelled Rachel.

Notes: Robert C. Combs (son of Samuel and Nancy CORNETT Combs according to The Combes Genealogy (undocumented)) married Perry Co., KY 04 Aug 1842 (Groom's Index), Eliza Combs, based on the age of their eldest children, and 1851-1859 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics. Eliza was the daughter of Jeremiah C. "Chunky" Combs based on 1853-1854 Perry Co., KY will and estate records for Jeremiah C. The Combes Genealogy, General Table, pp. 135-6, (erroneously?) lists "R.C." Combs as the husband of Eliza GODSEY (no source). Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) did not include birth locations and (2) listed "Martha 3 F" as "Martha 3 F?."

018-019 Washington HURT 26 M KY Farmer $100

Combs). His widow remarried on 10 Jun 1854, to Hiram WOOTEN (See also 1860 Perry Co., KY Census, HH#11 of H. C. WOOTEN).

Combs). The Combes Genealogy does not include Kendrick as a son; however, in Oct.1863, Nicholas sells land to Milley Combs, the widow of Kendrick, and her 4 children. He is the Kendrick Combs of the 1860 Perry Co., KY Census, age 25, who married Millie Combs. (See also Kendrick-Sealie 1854 Perry marriage record) Corrected: Earlier transcription listed (1) Nicholas Combs as born in VA instead of TN; (2) included no other birth locations; (3) listed Kendrick as "Henderson;" (4) listed "Lorenso 15 M" as "Louisa 13 F;" (5) "Mararet or Margret" as Margaret.

Milly 3/12 ? 11/12 ? F KY

Notes: Wesley Combs, son of Jeremiah L. "Long" Combs, Sr., married Nancy Combs per 1925 Perry Co., KY death certificate of their daughter, Margaret Combs Combs. See also 1860 Perry Co., KY Census. According to The Combes Genealogy, daughter of Nancy was the Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs, Jr. (no source).

46-48 Zachariah CAMPBELL - 28 M KY Farmer 300 married within year
Rebecca, 21, F, KY married within year
Elizabeth, 2, F, KY

Notes: According to Perry Co., KY DBB:335-6, dated Nov 1844, one Zachariah CAMPBELL was an heir (somehow) to Jeremiah L. Combs, Sr. One Zachariah CAMPBELL (quite possibly not the same) had apparently married Paulina-Purlina Combs, daughter of Jeremiah L. Combs, by Sep 1848 (Perry KY DBB:477) and they are found in the 1850 Breathitt Co., KY Census. The above Zachariah is listed as having married within the census year, but with a two year old child in the household who may not have been that of Rebecca. Might he have been the same Zachariah listed in the 1844 record?

049-051 James FRANCIS - 70 M VA Farmer $200
Rebecca - 51 F VA
Lawson 19 M VA
Wiley Combs 16 M VA Farmer
Wesley FRANCIS 13 M VA

Notes: Wesley FRANCIS is listed with #050-052 to left of his name, but it appears that the census taker "dropped a line" and that he was last name in this HH instead of first name in next HH. Who was Wiley Combs? According to Perry Co., KY Groom's Index, James FRANCIS married 20 Oct 1831; surname of bride unknown. Corrected: Earlier record (1) did not include birth locations; (2) listed Rebeccaas age 57; (3) Wesley FRANCIS as "Wesley or Frances Combs." (It is possible that either the census enumerator first began to write Combs, then wrote FRANCIS over it, or that Wesley's name was Wesley C. FRANCIS. Hard to decipher from copy of original; except Wesley's surname definitely listed as FRANCIS, not Combs).

057-060 Tolbert HOLLIDAY 24 M KY
Rachel 22 F KY
Peggy JONES 8 F KY
Elisha SMITH 70 M KY
John HOLLIDAY 9 M KY
Elisa, 7 F KY
Elisha 5 M, KY
Elijah 3 M, KY

Notes: Although the above Elisha SMITH is listed as a male, consideration has been given to the possibility that s/he may have been Elitia Combs Smith, born 20 Jun 1772, died 11 Mar 1858, Perry Co., KY, the daughter of Nicholas and Nancy GRIGSBY Combs, Sr., and widow of Richard SMITH (She has not been located elsewhere in any 1850 East KY Census).

Francis 19 M KY Farmer
Mathew 17 M KY Farmer

Lorenso 7 M KY

Notes: George Combs, son of Henry "8" and Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr., married 1821, Perry Co., KY (Groom's Index) Nancy SMITH, daughter of Richard & Elitia Combs Smith.

Rebecca - 55 F KY

Notes: Rebecca Combs, daughter of Nicholas "8" & Nancy GRIGSBY Combs, Sr., married 17 Jul 1809, Clay Co., KY John WILLIAMS. Corrected:Earlier Transcription did not include Rebecca's birth location, and listed her as age 51.

Polly - 42 F KY
Shade 16 M KY
Polly 13 F KY
John 13 M KY Idiotic
Susanna 6 F KY
Julia 3 F KY

Notes: John L. Combs, son of Jeremiah L. "Long" Combs, Sr. According to The Combes Genealogy, he married Polly, daughter of Shadrach Combs of Letcher (no source); however, according to the 1929 Knott Co., KY DC of their daughter, Susan Combs Fuller Combs, she was the daughter of John L. and Polly MOSELEY Combs. John L. died Aug 1859, Perry Co., KY and in the 1860 Perry Co., KY Census, Polly is in the HH of their son, Shadrach, along with an unidentified MOSELEY.

079-084 Hezekiah Combs - 25 M KY Farmer
Mehala 21 F KY
Susan 28 F KY
Wesley 5 M KY [a line through age 24 and a 5 written in?]

Notes: Son of Margaret Combs, daughter of RW John "8" and Margaret Combs? Whowere Susan Combs and (her son?) Wesley? (See 1860 Perry Co., KY where Wesley may have become William, etc.) Not identified in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Susan's name first, followed by Mahala's [sic], then Wesley's.

080-086 Preston JOHNSON 24 M KY Farmer $300
Milly Combs - 30 F KY
Wesley 11 M
Jeremiah 15 M

Notes: This may have been Millie Combs, daughter of Jeremiah "Long" Combs (Perry KY Deeds). Note that Jeremiah Combs is listed "out of age order," and that, accordingto The Combes Genealogy, General Table, Millie Combs, daughter of Jeremiah "Long," married Preston JOHNSON and Felix Combs, and had a son, John Wesley Combs by Andrew Combs (son of Jeremiah & Synthia SUMNER Combs). No Source. In 1860 she was listed in Preston JOHNSON'S Perry household without surname Combs. Corrected: Earlier transcription listed Millie with annotated (Combs) as if surname was JOHNSON, but she is listed as "Milly Combs" in the above record, which means that Wesley and Jeremiah should [sic] have also both been Combs, not JOHNSONS.

082-088 Sally COX 40 F VA
Elijah Combs -14 M KY
Jane 12 F KY
Nicholas 9 M KY

Notes: Sally WHITLEY Combs [sic], widow of Jeremiah "Long" Combs, Sr., and mother of the above three children according to Perry Co., KY deeds and the 1914 Lee Co., KY DC of her son, the above Nicholas Combs. Why is her surname COX? Did she marry a COX after the death of her husband? Also note that given Elijah was only 14 that it may have been Sally COX who was illiterate with the census taker having dropped a line. Sallie (as a Combs again) may be listed in the 1860 Perry with son, Elijah Combs. Her son, Nicholas, is also found in the 1860 with wife, Eliza WILLIAMS, and daughter, Jane, with husband, Leviticus FULLER.Corrected: Earlier Transcription listed as HH 087; included no birth locations; listed Jane as age 13.

Sallie 4/12 F KY

Notes: John WALKER married Polly Combs, daughter of Jeremiah C. "Chunky" & Syntha SUMNER Combs (10 Aug 1853 and Apr 1854 Perry Co., KY records) A John WALKER, Jr. married Perry Co., KY in 1833 (Groom's Index), but unlikely to have been same John WALKER as ages would have been only 16 and 14 respectively. See also 1870 Perry Co., KY Census. Corrected:Earlier Transcription included no birth locations; and "Sallie 4/12 F" as "Sally 1/12 F."

114-122 Moses Combs -44 M KY Farmer 1000
Lette - 44 F KY
Jeremiah 18 M KYFarmer
Thelix Combs - 23 M KYFarmer
Susanna - 21 F KY
William 2 M KY
Dianna 5/12 F KY

Notes: Moses Combs married Lythie Combs according to the 1912 Knott Co., KY death certificate of his son, the above Felix [sic], b1824-7, KY. Felix Combs married (1) bef 1848, Susanna Combs (daughter of Jeremiah C. "Curly and Elizabeth Combs Combs of District 1, 007-007), died 30 May 1858, Perry Co., KY; by whom he had the above William and Dianna and Moses (1858 Perry KY VS and 1860 Perry Co., KY Census); married (2) in Oct 1858, Perry Co., KY, Chloe BEGLEY (who apparently was the widow of (1) Ezekiel HALL and (2) Unknown BEGLEY). Moses was the son of Jeremiah C. "Chunky" & Synthia SUMNER Combs, and married Lydia Combs, defined by The Combes Genealogy, General Table, pp. 140-141, as "old Geo. Combs' daughter" [George "8" & Lydia HARRELL Combs]; however, the Dickey Diary Interview of Andrew Combs, born ca 1806, KY, and also a son of Jeremiah and Synthia, includes the statement that his brother, Moses, was a full grown man when Andrew was a boy. Dr. Combs also mentions Susannah, William and Dianna as also on the 1850 census, but does not identify them as the wife and children of Felix. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed this as HH #121; (2) included no birth locations; (3) listed Lette as Lita; (4) Jeremiah as Ephraim; and (5) Thelix as Andy. (See also): A 3 Aug. 1861 Perry Co. deed identifies Jerry Combs, Phelix Combs, and Samuel Combs as the heirs at law of Moses Combs, deceased. The deed was signed by Jerry and Polly [his wife[ Combs.

(See also next)

115-123 Nancy CAMPBELL, 46, F, KY, *
Hiram, 8, M, KY
Martha, 5, F, KY

Notes: According to a granddaughter of the above Martha, interviewed by Combs Researcher Jim Cornett, Martha told her that she and Hiram Hite were Nancy CAMPBELL'S children by Moses Combs (114-122), and that Moses was never married to her mother. This is further confirmed by Martha's 1864 Perry Co., KY marriage record to Daniel SMITH (son of Samuel and Nancy JONES Smith), which lists her as Martha Combs-CAMPBELL. Nancy CAMPBELL is in 1870 and 1880 Perry Co., KY Census records in HH of Daniel & Martha Combs-CAMPBELL Smith. In 1860, only Moses' wife is found on the Perry Co., KY census (HH239). According to another story, Moses Combs beat Nancy CAMPBELL and left her for dead in a creek, then ran off because he thought he had killed her, possibly why he is not to be found after 1850; however, a 3 Aug. 1861 Perry Co. deed lists Jerry Combs, Phelix Combs, and Samuel Combs as the heirs at law of Moses Combs deceased? Not included in The Combes Genealogy.

127-137 Samuel Combs 22 M Farmer KY

130-140 Levisa, 29, F, Farmer, VA [No surname recorded; OWENS assumed]
John, 28, M, KY, *
Harvey, 8, M, KY
Granville, 6, M, KY

Notes: 15 Jul 1852 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics list the birth and death of child (children) of Hardin OWENS and Louisa Combs. 1860 Perry Co., KY Census not checked yet, butit is possible that the above Levisa (a.k.a. Louisa) was neè Combs although Hardin OWENS is listed in separate household here. See also 24 Jul 1840 Perry Co., KY Groom's Index for marriage of a Hardin OWENS (no OWENS on 1840 Perry or Breathitt Census enumerations).

132-142 John SMITH - 29 M KY Farmer 300
Willey - 23 F KY [Corrected from Milley]
William 3 M KY

"Long" Combs, Sr.,m 1844-1847, John SMITH (per her father's estate records and Letcher Co., KY Marriage Index, 1842-1851), son ofWilliam SMITH and Millie Combs. See also John and Willy [Milly] SMITH Combs (05 Jan 1853 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics, birth of daughter, Nancy). Their 1860 Census record may document whether it is or not. Also note that although The Combes Genealogy includes the marriage of John & Willie Combs Smith, the children listed do not match the above.Corrected Earlier transcription listed as HH 141.

Jeremiah 3 M KY
Nancy 1/12 F KY

Notes: Nicholas S. Combs, Jr. (son of Jeremiah C. "Chunky" & Synthia SUMNER Combs) married Margaret "Peggy" Combs (daughter of Jeremiah L. "Long" Combs, Sr.) . They were in Missouri in the earlier 1840s according to her father's estate records. Peggy is in the 1880 Perry KY Census HH of David, listed as his mother, but why is he listed "out of age order?" The Combes Genealogy identifies this as Nicholas and Margaret "Peggy" Combs Combs, but it is not clear to which family they are attached (Conflicts in the General Table). See David Combs also in 1860 & 1870 Perry, but Peggy is missing from both. Nicholas S. Combs, Jr. died in Perry 1853-4.

145-158 Washington Combs - _4? M VA Farmer 1000
Sally - 50 F Ky.
Peggy 41 F KY
Jane 17 F KY
Jefferson 15 M KY

Notes: Not known if above two families in same dwelling, or numbering error by Census Enumerator. Washington Combs was the son of Mason "8" & Jane RICHARDSON Combs, Sr., and may have been same who married in Perry Co., KY 25 Dec 1826 (Groom's Index.) Who was Peggy, age 41? Could she have been Margaret, born ca 1807, daughter of RW John Combs? Or is the age in error and she is Peggy, age 35 in Washington's 1860 Perry KY Census HH (and/or age 25 in 1870)? Who was Jefferson, age 15? Note: Jane, 17, was Washington's daughter and married William M. Combs, son of Matthew & Frankie BROWN Combs, Sr. (Dickey Diary), and they are found in Breathitt Co., KY in 1860. Washington's wife, Sally, was neè WHITTAKER per The Combes Genealogy, General Table, p. 145. Source needed!Corrected: Earlier transcription listed as HH 157; listed Washington as age 54 (1st digit illegible, but he is listed as age 63 in 1860 Perry Co., KY Census, HH 623-621).

Hugh 11 M KY
Sidad____[?] 9 F KY
Emeline 7 F KY
Susan 5 F KY
Adrian 3 M KY

Notes: Clinton "Grizzler" son of Mason & Jane RICHARDSON Combs. According to 22 Oct 1853 Perry Co., KY Records, Clinton Combs married Betsey Combs (who was, according to The Combes Genealogy (no source), daughter of Shadrach Combs, Sr.) Who was Hiram, age 29, thus only 12 years younger than Clinton? Hiram is supposed to be the son of son Clinton Combs by Matilda Combs who served in the Civil War in the Confederacy in AR. (See the Two Hiram and Mary Combs of Perry Co., KY and Madison Co., Arkansas) See also 1860 Perry Co., KY Census, 232-230. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed HH as #159; (2) included no birth locations; (3) listed Hirem as "Lucinda 21? M KY;" (4) listed Hugh as "Hugh-Elihue;" (5) listed Sidad____[?] as Deliverance; (6) listed Emeline as Emmeline; (6) listed Adrian as Adinaron.

Sytha - * 25 F KY
Lafayett - 25 M KY
Sally[?] CORNITT 23/25/28[?] F KY
Remine 14[?] M

Notes: Although the Dwelling # is listed to left of Sythia's name, it appears that John D. was in this HH, rather than the last name in #148-161, which is alsoa HH in which the Census enumerator appears to have "dropped a line down" (See full census transcription). Also note that they are listed as having married within the census year. John D. Combs, ancestry unknown, married Scithy ELLIS according to 25 Mar 1853 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics. 1855 Perry Co., KY death records indicate that Cynthy D. Combs was the daughter of Polly ELLIS. See also Polly ELLIS in 1850 Perry Co., KY Census HH of Elijah & Sally ROARK Combs, Sr . (District 2, 004-004). See John D. in 1860 Perry CoKY census. This family is not listed in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) does not include birth locations; (2) lists John as HH of "161;" (3) Sytha as Sythia; (4) Lafayett as Lafayette; (5) Sally CORNETT [sic] as age 2 and Remine as age 1 (Faded copy, but clearly 2 digit ages for both Sally and Remine). [See also Combs Nicknames re Seth, Sithy, Cynthy, etc. all being same given name].

150-163 Elsey D.Combs - 24 M KY Farmer
Clinton D. Combs - 21 M KY Farmer

Notes: Elsey D. Combs is identified as the heir [son] of Sally D. Combs in an 1870 Perry Co. deed. This Sally was the daughter of Mason Combs and she married William D. Combs. Not included in The Combes Genealogy. Could they be brothers of the above John D.? Not all of William D. and Sally Combs Combs children have been identified. Jackson D. Combs (d. 1849) is identified as an heir of Sally D. Combs in an 1870 deed and the same deed shows all of Jackson's six children carried the midde initial of "D" including one son named John D. Combs Jr. Clinton D. Combs is not found in 1860 Perry Co., KY Census; however, Elsey D., age 38, is listed in the HH of a John COMBS that could be Elsey's nephew and son of Jackson D. Combs styled as John D. Combs Jr. Could Clinton D., age 21 above have been same as Clinton, age 21, son of William and Wilmot Combs Combs of 1850 Montgomery Co., KY Census? Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) does not include birth location for Clinton D; (2) lists HH as "162;" (3) lists Elsey D. Combs as a female.

Notes: Massingill Martin Combs (Mason "8" & Jane RICHARDSON Combs, Sr. ) married 14 Feb 1825, Perry Co., KY, Elizabeth Combs, daughter of Jeremiah "Long" Combs. Also note that 1850-1880 Census indicate wife, Elizabeth, but 1915 Perry Co., KY death certificate of son, Massingill Martin Combs, Jr., b 1841 [sic], indicates mother was Mary Combs (maiden name). Massingill had married by 1880, Polly (neè KELLY per The Combes Genealogy), and Massingill's death certificate may have confused the two. Listed in The Combes Genealogy.Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) does not include birth locations; (2) lists HH as "163;" (3) Lists Martin as "Mart 40 M;" (4) Lists Dicy as "Lucy;" (5) Massingal as Massingall; (6) and Bonapart as "Bonapart S."

(See also the Two Hiram and Mary Combs of Perry Co., KY and Madison Co, Arkansas) According to The Combes Genealogy, Polly also married a Nicholas Combs (no more details, not stated which Nicholas Combs, and thought to have been in error).

Leonedas T. 1 M KY
Dicy Combs 11 F KY

Notes: Benjamin DAVIDSON married Sarah Combs, daughter of Elijah & Polly Combs Combs, Jr. (22 Dec 1854 Perry Co., KY Records) Dicey Combs, apparently sister of the above John Combs, was deceased by 1858 when named as an heir of Biram Combs in Perry Co., KY records (Biram Combs, Jr. according to The Combes Genealogy). Is VA birth location for Sarah Combs Davidson accurate (shown as "ditto")? Listed in The Combes Genealogy.

Notes: Alexander Combs marroed Mary "Polly" BRESHEARS (06 Jul 1853, 05 May 1858 and 1870 (Census, Hazard Precinct, #9) Perry Co., KY Records). Also note that other researchers have mistakenly assigned Mary BRESHEARS to Alexander S. Combs in District 01. This family not yet found in 1860 Census; however, see 1870 Perry Co., KY Census, Hazard Precinct, #9. The Combes Genealogy …, General Table, p. 139, lists Alexander as son of Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs, Jr. (Undocumented) See also Two Alexander and Mary (Polly) Combs of Perry Co., KYCorrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed as HH 196; (2) included no birth locations; (3) listed Almira as Margaret.

184-201 Robert CAUDELL [?] 14 M
Elias Combs 22 M Farmer 400 Ky.
Lucinda 22 F KY

202 Jabez L. HAMILTON 27 M VA Hatter

Notes: It appears likely that the census enumerator "dropped a line" and that Robert CAUDELL was actually in 183-200, and that Elias Combs was head of this HH (See full census). Elias Combs married Lucinda CORNETT (17 Dec 1852, Perry Co., KY Records) According to The Combes Genealogy, Elias was the son of Tarlton and Elizabeth ISON Combs (no source). Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed HH as 200 instead of 184-201; (2) listed as CAUDILL; (3) omitted info that a second "family" (Jabez L. HAMILTON who was listed as Jabey HAMILTON) was also listed in this dwelling; (4) omitted birth states other than Elias.

Caleb 20 M KY Farmer
Edward 17 M KY Farmer
Henry 14 M KY
Martha 13 F KY
Polly 11 F KY
Sylvia 7 F KY
Mary 5 F KY
Sally 3 F KY

Notes: James Combs, son of Henry "8" & Rachael CLEMENTS Combs, Sr., may have married twice since he appears to have been the James Combs who m 1824, Perry Co., KY, at which time the above Elizabeth would have been only ca 9 years old (Her age seems to be consistently given as she is listed as age 45 in the 1860 Perry Co., KY Census). Both the 1830 and 1840 Perry Co., KY census show James' wife as b 1800-1810. According to one researcher, Elizabeth was nee HENRY (based on a Perry Co., KY deed identified as Perry Co., KY Deed No. 471, 1858, which was "co-signed by James Combs, Sr.," an abstract or transcription of which is still needed). Listed in The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed this as #202 rather than 185-203; (2) did not include birth states; (3) did not include additional occupations; (4) Omitted Martha 13 F KY; (5) Listed Polly as age 13 instead of 11; (6) listed Sylvia as 11 instead of 7; (7) listed Mary as 7 instead of 5; (8) listed Sally as 5 instead of 3.

Jackson 7 M KY
John 5 M KY
Cassius [?] 2 M KY

Notes: Jackson G. Combs, son of Elijah & Sarah ROARK Combs, Sr. (Jul and Aug1852 and 8 Nov 1855 Perry Co., KY records) Wife Martha aka Patsy was the d/o of James CRANK of Knox Co., Ky. (Source: Knox Co., Ky. Kinfolk v.2#12, 12/1/1978). The Combes Genealogy, which apparently used this census record for children (except with Elijah listed as Elizabeth and noted as missing), also lists Martha as neč CRANK (no source). Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed this as #204 rather than 187-205; (2) included no birth locations; (3) listed Jackson G. as Jackson; (4) listed value as $500 instead of $4000. By 1860, deeds involving the children of Jackson G. Combs only list Sally HOGG, Elijah and James Combs.

Notes: Isaac YOUNG married Polly Combs 08 Jan 1840, Perry Co., KY (Groom's Index and 12 Feb 1852 and 05 Sep 1855 Perry Co., KY Vital Statistics). Also note, however, that an 1853 record lists wife as Sally. 1870 Perry Co., KY census also shows Polly. Not listed in General Table of The Combes Genealogy. Corrected: Earlier transcription (1) listed this as #214 rather than 196-215; (2) did notinclude additional data for Jeremiah. New information corrects marriage date from 1 Aug1840 to 8 Jan 1840.

247-268 Tarleton Combs - 46 M KY $2300

Mary - 20 F KY
Nancy 18 F KY
Catharine 15 F KY
Ustla [?] 13 F KY
Carlo 11 M KY
Harrison 9 M KY
Ira 6 M KY

Transcription Note: The numbering for census pages 432-3 appears to include a number of "line errors;" i.e., 247-267 lists Hiram PRATT, age 22, as HH for a family that includes the family of Rheuben SMITH, age 58; and 247-268 (same dwelling, separate family) lists Clinton GODSEY as HH for the family of Tarleton Combs. It will be necessary for researchers to view Louise Gaskill's full transcription and/r the original document to understand what appears to have occurred here; thus, we have included only the family of Tarlton Combs. Note Also: Tarlton Combs, son of Mason & Jane "Jennie" RICHARDSON Combs, Sr. (Dickey Diary), married 25 Dec 1826 in Perry Co., KY (Groom's Index), Elizabeth ISON (1934 Perry Co., KY Death Certificate of son, Ira). Also note that first letter of Ustla's name questionable.
