1880 PERRY COUNTY, KY. CENSUS unless otherwise noted is provided by Combs Researcher Marilyn Hansen from her personal copy of the "Annotated 1880 Perry Co, KY Census," compiled and published by Judy Cunagin of Indianapolis, Indiana. Marilyn adds: I debated on whether to leave Ms. Cunagin's notes in or take them out. I have decided to leave them in with the reminder to all to question the added information by asking ourselves "How Do We Know?" (Our Combs Research Motto) I think that leaving the annotations in will give us all the opportunity to 1) possibly find information fromsomeone else's research that we may have missed, and 2) if we don't agreewith the information, add to or correct it. IMPORTANT: The 1880 US Censusincluded (crucial) information omitted by the compiler, including: (1)the birth states of individuals and their parents; and (2) in most instances, the relationships of individuals in each household to the head of household.

Combs Researcher Debi Houser has made corrections and added the missing information to the Combs HHs below that were not found in Ms. Cunagin's published work. Added in red below.

Editor's Note: We have already completed "first draft" annotations for the following records, and are in the process of replacing each household herein with transcriptions by various members of our Combs Research Group, but in the meantime, we have included thismaterial with what we believe to be* the author's annotations in (parentheses), our Combs annotations in [brackets], and with known Combsby birth in bold. The only other major changes in formatting are our capitalization of SURNAMES, and removal of capitalization from givennames. Notes by Marilyn are indicated by MH Notes, and separatefrom the census record, as are general Combs Research annotations, whichare indicated by "Notes."

*It has not always been possible to determine which entries were part of the census record, and which part of the annotation. Also note that where the author's annotations include a marriage date, the location remains unknown except where notation added by Combs Research.

Notes: Is this Milton, born ca 1842, in the 1850 and 1860 Perry, son of Byram and Mariah MESSER Combs? (Milton and Polly's family are missing in 1870) Biram and Mariah are missing in both 1870 and 1880. One "Bud" Combs, born 1865, died 18 Jun 1928, Perry Co, KY, was the son of Melton Combs (Death Certificate indexed as Burl Combs). Might he have been one of the above sons?

Notes: David Combs married Polly Davidson 1 Aug. 1860 however no bride was listed. (Sources: PCKY Marriages, Books A-F, Perry Co., Ky. Gen & Hist Soc., Inc., transcribed by Pat Horn and both the Breathitt Co., KY Vital Returns of their daughter, Peggy, born 4 Mar 1875 and the 29 Nov 1913 Perry Co., KY Death Certificate of daughter, Sealy (Celia above) which list their parents as David Combs and Polly Davidson). According to The Combes Genealogy, his parents were Nicholas and Margaret "Peggy" Combs Combs, however, since David, then age 10, born MO, appears "out of age order" in the 1850 Perry Co., KY Census HH of Nicholas Combs, it leaves open the question as to whether he was the son of Nicholas. Nicholas died by Jan. 1854 per probate records. Complete transcription needed for David's birth state (MO per the 1850) and birth states of both his parents and Peggy's parents. Salina Gibson provided a picture of David and Polly's Combs and their daughter Peggy Combs and husband Manuel Miller. See also David and Polly in the 1900 Census Perry Co., KY

Notes: According to The Combes Genealogy, p. 140, Lydia J. (Jessie?) Combs, daughter of Alexander & Mary BRASHEAR Combs, married Harvey HENSLEY (no source). Perry County marriage records has a 1881 marriage between a Harvey HENSLEY and Lidia COMBS. The above 1895 marriage may be in reference to the 11 Nov 1895 Perry Co. marriage of Jesse COMBS and Han? HENSLEY. More research is needed.

The author writes: " This district is very mixed up, and does not go by the same numbers as the 1870 census record. It goes by numbers and will skip back and forth. To avoid mistakes, I will go by the Enumerator's number district 82, or #2."

An error in one of the census records or two wives named Margaret (aka Peggy)?

Notes: Jeremiah & Polly WILLIAMS Combs are listed in 1860 Perry Co., KY Census HH337-35 as having married in the census year. In 1870, they are in Perry Co., KY HH#61 with son, Wesley, age 5. According to William O'Conner's "Danger" manuscript," Nicholas WILLIAMS, born 1815 (son of John & Rebecca Combs Williams), married Ann WILLIAMS, born 1816 (daughter of Hardy and Sarah CAMPBELL Williams). O'Conner states that their daughter, Mary "Polly" WILLIAMS, born 1839, married Jeremiah Combs (identified by O'Conner as son of Jeremiah "Chunky" Combs and Sallie GRIGSBY), born 1831 [sic], by whom she had Martha Combs, born 1859; John Combs, b 1860; and Wesley Combs, born 1863. O'Conner includes no sources and basis is unknown, but note that he has confused this Jeremiah Combs with Jeremiah, son of Moses and Lydia Combs Combs (the "real" parents of Martha and John - see Jeremiah, age 49 below). Does this census record indicate the relationship of Jeremiah to Nicholas and Anny WILLIAMS?

Notes: According to The Combes Genealogy, Jeremiah "Tight Jerry" Combs was the natural son of Jeremiah C. "Chunky Jerry" Combs (son of Nicholas & Nancy GRIGSBY Combs) by Matilda Combs (daughter of George and Lydia HARRELL Combs), possibly the Tilda of the above record? (Census record needed to see if relationship of Tilda to Jeremiah is noted)? Matilda, born ca 1810 according to the 1850 Perry Co., KY census, has not yet been located in the 1870 Census, and this is the only census in which she is in the same HH with Jeremiah. Tippacanoe appears to be the same as Tapinocea (as she is listed in The Combes Genealogy) and "Pus" who was still single when murdered in Knott Co., KY on 5 Sep 1938. Also according to The Combes Genealogy, Jeremiah "Tight Jerry" died in 1935 in Knott Co., KY, where is found in 1936, a Jeremiah Combs, born ca 1835 (but presumed younger?). Who was Richmond?

James Madison and wife, Susan, appear on the 1870 Perry Co., KY Census with daughter, Minta, age 4 [sic],and son, Fielding, born Jan 1870 (neither of whom were included by The Combes Genealogy as children of James Madison). Were Minta and Arminta the same? Ditto for Millie (married 23 Apr 1896, Knott Co., KY, Noah GENT), as named in The Combes Genealogy, and the above Molly Ann (not named)? Other children ascribed by The Combes Genealogy to James Madison and Susan were: Riley (married Sarah HALE); Jerry (married Mary Ann SMITH); John Harlan (married Liza MOORE); Martha (married Lige JENT); Nancy (married John JENT); Lucinda (married a BLAIR); and Pauline (married William STACEY).

SE Notes: Sarah "Sally" STACY, daughter of Jeremiah L. Combs, married Shadrach STACY, son of Simon & Elizabeth DAVIDSON Stacy. It is highly doubtful that the birth state of either of her parents (both born pre-1791, was Kentucky. In 1870, they were in Perry HH#143 where Sarah is listed as Elizabeth, apparently an error by the census taker, although possibly her middle name (she not found listed as Elizabeth in any other record).

Which Wash Combs is not stated in that source, and although this source mentions no marriages for Peggy (born 1825-1835), daughter of Washington and Sally WHITAKER Combs, it does state that she had a natural son, Pearl, by John LACEY, who appears to be the J. P. Combs, age 3 in the 1860 Perry census, who appears to be the Granville (possibly a Granville Pearl?), age 13, in the 1870 Perry census HH of her parents), who may be the above Paul (Pearl?)

Massingill is supposedly buried at Old Happy (Blackhawk) Cemetery in Perry except that his death certificate states that he was born 7 Jul 1841, and died 10 Mar 1915, but the Happy Cem. transcription indicates that he was born over four years earlier, on 2 Mar 1837, and died almost a month earlier, on 17 Feb 1815. Their son, Edmon was listed as Edward in 1870. Annotated lists this as HH #415.

Notes: Notes: Betty Jane SUMNER, the wife of Elijah, is defined as having an interest in the property of Massingill Combs Sr. in a 17 Feb. 1888 deed (DBI:4-5). She was the Betty, age 8 in 1860 Perry Co., KY census HH617-615 of Massingill Martin & Elizabeth Combs Combs, Sr. (who is missing from their 1870 Perry Census HH, possibly due to having already married?). Massingill, age 19, not identified, although possibly Martin, son of Gilbert Combs & grandson of Massingill Martin Combs, Sr. (Gilbert's son, Martin, age 10 in 1870, is missing from this census. See #405 above). Who was Polly Combs, age 25? Polly Combs, daughter of Massingill Martin and Elizabeth Combs Combs, Sr. was age 1 in 1850, age 10 in 1860, age 19 in 1870 so this Polly 5-6 years too old to have been their daughter if age is correct.

The 1860 Perry census lists Marry [sic], 9, in HH of Jeremiah L., and the 1870, lists Mary, 16, in HH of her mother, Sally. The Combes Genealogy does not identify Remines Combs; however, according to Combs Researcher Jimmie "CrashedOne" Combs, Mary's full name was Alene Mary (no source and age wrong?) and Remines' full name was John D. Remines Combs, the latter son of Jeremiah C. "Chunky" and Sarah GRIGSBY Combs (no source).

Notes: Virgil Combs was the son of Jackson D. Combs and Serena aka Reen. (Source: 3 Oct. 1870 (Perry Co., Ky. DBD:67) deed where Virgil Combs is listed as an heir of Jackson D. Combs and Jackson is identified as the heir [son] of Sally D. COMBS who was heir [daughter] of Mason Combs.) The death certificate of a William Combs, born 1 Aug 1880, Perry Co., KY; died 7 Aug 1930, Perry Co., KY, is listed as the son of Virgil and Cynthianne SIZEMORE Combs. Was Virgil married and widowed by 1880 with the above Milo & William his sons? Josephine SISEMORE was the daughter of Harvey SIZEMORE and Willie Combs who also had a daughter named Cinthia per 1860 and 1870 census records. Reen Combs sold land to Harvey SIZEMORE in 1860. It would appear that Virgil's deceased wife was Cinthia, d/o of Harvey and Willie Combs SIZEMORE and that her sister Josephine is living with him.

Ms. Cunagin's transcript adds that Elhannon married 4 Oct 1887 (no location), Elizabeth QUINN; however, the1941 Perry Co., KY Death Certificate of their daughter, Alice Combs Hurt, lists her parents as Elhannon and Elizabeth GWINN Combs. The above twins Sira and Betty Jane Combs appear to have been enumerated twice and are also in HH409 413 of Bonapart Combs.

Notes: Source for Chloe having been a BRANSON? William O'Conner's "Danger" manuscript states Chloe was the daughter of Leonard BRANSON (no sources). Chloe married (1) bef 1834, Ezekiel HALL; married (2) 10 Jun 1856 Russell BEGLEY; married (3) 16 Oct 1858, Perry Co., KY, Felix Combs, son of Moses and Lydia Combs Combs, and widower of Susanna Combs (daughter of Jeremiah "Curly" Combs), who died 30 May 1858, Perry Co., KY. Her daughter, Sally HALL, is listed as age 14 in the 1850 Perry Co., KY Census HH of Ezekiel and Chloe HALL, and was not in the1860 Perry Co., KY Census HH of Felix and Chloe. Robert S. BRASHEAR was also in the 1850 Perry Co., KY Census in HH of James and Elizabeth, thenage19.

The above divorced Susan Combs was born ca 1850 per this census. The Knott Co., KY Death Certificate of one Sussane Combs states she was born 10 May1836, KY, died 4 Jan 1929, daughter of John L. Combs & Polly MOSELEY, both born KY, that she was divorced and that her husband (which?) was Perl or Brl? FULLER. The Combes Genealogy states that Susan Combs, daughter of John Lorenzo Combs and Polly Combs (daughter of "old" Shadrach Combs of Letcher), married (1) Bunt[sic] FULLER, the son of Elijah FULLER [which?], married (2) "later a Combs." Susan, the daughter of John L. and Polly (Combs? MOSELEY?) Combs, was born in 1844 according to their 1850 Perry Co., KY Census HH. Is this a second Susan Combs' divorce or the same? The only other Combs listed as divorced in this census is one Anderson Combs (HH#582), age 36. The only Susan married to a Combs in 1860 who is of the same age as the above Susan was Susan Combs (daughter of Clinton and Elizabeth Combs Combs according to The Combes Genealogy), wife of James Madison Combs (son of Jeremiah L. and Sarah KELLY Combs), who was 20 in their 1870 Perry Co., KY Census HH. By 1880 (HH#386), James Madison Combs was married to Mary Ann (daughter of William"Med" and Martha ASHLEY Smith, accordingto The Combes Genealogy).

Notes: George Combs, b 1831-1833, KY, m 15 May 1855, Perry Co., KY, Mary Ann BAKER. He may have been natural son of Matilda Combs (daughter of George & Lydia HARRELL Combs) by Clinton "Grizzler" Combs (son of Mason & Jane RICHARDSON Combs). If so, according to The Combes Genealogy, his daughter, Matilda "Tilda," later married (as his third wife), "old Col. SALYER." No Robert Combs is listed in the 1870 Perry Co., KY Census, but an Elihu was age 5 that year (possibly an E. R. or R. E. Combs and thus the same?) George's son, John S. Combs, died 24 Dec 1939, Perry Co., KY. Letha STACY is in the 1880 Perry Co., KY District 2 HH#623 of Granville and Alcy Combs (Davidson) Combs; however, the 1921 Perry death certificate of Elijaha [sic] Combs, son of George and Mary Ann BAKER, lists wife as Ella Jane Combs,the 1931 death certificate of Sarah BUCKNER, born 12 Jul 1885, Perry, lists her parents as Elijah Combs and Ella Jane Combs; and the 1921 Perry Death Certificate of Ella Jane Combs lists her parents as Carlo and Margaret Combs Combs (See 1880 District 2, #412).

Marinda BRASHEAR and (2?) Alcy Combs, widow of Joseph DAVIDSON. Was John S. Combs, age 19, son of John Wesley and Mary Ann "Polly" PATTON Combs (see #590)?

Combs, age 9, son of John Wesley and Mary Ann "Polly" PATTON Combs, according to The Combes Genealogy. In 1870, Wiley was also the only of that name in Perry Co., KY census (in HH of his mother, Polly PATTON Combs). Also in her 1870 Perry Co., KY census was Wiley's brother, John S. Combs, then aged 8 (see #586 above). Is this Judge Wiley A. Combs? Who was John? Since listed near John S. Combs, could John be his grandson, age 10 in his grandfather's 1870 Perry Census HH, son of Kendrick and Millie Combs Combs?

Notes: Francis "Frank" Combs, son of Henry & Rachel CLEMENTS Combs, Sr., married (1) Elizabeth OLIVER (living in 1880, described as a widow in Breathitt Co., KY Census in HH of their son, Franklin?); (2) Polly COUCH (who appears to be same who died 27 Jan 1912, Perry Co., KY)? In both 1850 and 1860 Perry (if the same individual), he is listed as having been born ca 1816 (as vs. the above ca 1808), and in 1870 not found. Further research is needed to determine if there was a divorce between Elizabeth and Frances and to determine if Asberry and Polly are Francis' children. Was Asberry possibly Francis Asberry (famous frontier Methodist preacher)?

Notes: Lorenzo Combs was the son of Nicholas and Elizabeth Combs Combs. According to The Combes Genealogy, he married Gency GREGORY (Gency nickname for Jane?). His wife's name was spelled "--ince?" in 1860 and "Ginsey" in 1870 (Perry KY Census), and the eldest child in both those census records was John, b ca 1856. Had either Lorenzo or Jane-Gincey been married previously (since the above marriage record would seem to indicate that John was possibly from an earlier marriage)? Was Kandis a male or female (Candace?). Not found on 1870 census. Was she daughter of Lorenzo or wife of Abijah?

MH Notes: Dora POLLY is the granddaughter of Joseph and Alcie Combs Davidson (Combs), and daughter of Edward and Sarah DAVIDSON Polly (all my direct gr.parents). Note that her brother, Frank POLLY was living in the home of #125 Granville Pearl and Alcie Combs(Davidson) Combs. A third child, Alcie, is not yet found. According to oral family tradition, Edward & Sarah DAVIDSON Polly had died, and Alcie DAVIDSON was sent to live with a Maiden Aunt Polly in Virginia. Alcie is my grandmother.
