Debi Houser Note: Is Kenneth COMBS the s/o Claibourn COMBS and wife Sarah COMBS of Owsley Co., Ky? They had a son Kenneth age 17, listed with them on the 1850 Owsley Co., Ky Census. Then we have two birth records for children of Kenneth and Lucretia McGEE COMBS in Owsley Co., Ky in 1854 (Daniel) and 1855 (Thomas). The next and last place Kenneth and Lucretia are listed is on the 1860 Clay Co., Ky Census. In the transciption of that Census record, Kenneth and Lucretia have a son Robert C. age six, out of order. Could he actually have been 6 months old and not 6 yrs old? The transcript was taken from a book, *not* from the actual microfilm.
