Ed Note: Unfortunately, we are “short” on Mississippi Combs Researchers so far, leaving our Cherry May somewhat out in the cold, and leaving everyone “records-short”. Someday, we hope this report will be an index to Combs &c. Counties of MS, but for now, it remains primarily a report (Moved to Noxubee) on Cherry's ancestors, William A. and Malinda GREER Combs of GA and MS.

(Transcribed by Combs Researcher Barbara Stacy Mathews)

BSM Notes: I read this census while at the Sutro Library in San Francisco, and the first name of this Combs is difficult to read, but I believe it is Martin Combs, though the "t" in Martin is not crossed. I looks somewhat like MARHU Combs, but not exactly either, if that makes any sense...... Down the road is a Henry COMBS, age 25, single, Black. Charley STACY, son of Mason and Charlotte CARTER Stacy (m 1809, Greene Co, KY) is also listed in this county, in HH 1309/1311, age 35. This Stacy family (Mason and sons and daughter's) had moved from KY to IL to MS by the 1850 census. Also listed is a Martin JOHNSON, age 42, born in Virginia. He is in household 199/200, living alone. Next door is Henry JOHNSON and Sally BROWN (age 37) and her two children. Also in the area is a Major JOHNSON, age 57 (household 957/959) and he lives very near Martin JOHNSON. There are many Johnson's living in this county....The MAYNARD'S are living there in Coahoma also. In particular is a Deaton MAYNARD, from VA.

Notes: The above Martin COMBS is not Martin K. of Muhlenberg Co KY, nor Martin Massingill of Perry Co KY. The only other possibilities, assuming birth states are correct, are M. COMBS of Jefferson Co KY, and M. S. COMBS of Bullitt Co KY.
