Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been an avid genealogist in Perry Co. for over 35 years. I have researched my family in Letcher, Perry, Breathitt, Magoffin, Morgan, Leslie, Clay, Lee and Owsley counties. I have research on the Campbell, Couch, Dixon, Combs, Cornett, Feltner, Williams, Whitely, Haney, Gullet and others that came into my family as I researched. I became a member of FAG while trying to find my grandfather's lost grave in Magoffin Co. My husband and I started taking pictures of the cemeteries in Perry Co. to help people find their lost loved ones. We are attempting to photograph the cemeteries in Perry county. I will do transfers within the four Generation FAG guideline that include: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents and great grandparents. Sorry, no transfers to aunts, uncles or cousins. PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR TRANSFERS NOT IN YOUR DIRECT LINE. I try to be accommodating but I will not tolerate rudeness. If any of my memorials need to be edited, please contact me using the edit button. Also I will try to help if you are having trouble research your family members. Thanks

I need more info on James Combs buried at
Town Mountain Cemetery
Perry County
Kentucky, USA

All that is on the marker is the birth and death years. I am searching for a James Paul Combs born Jan 15,1927 is there a way to get the birth date?

RE: Goode Cemetery.Texas, Ky.
Following was my response to Ron Combs regarding this cemetery:

Ron - The description of the location of the "Good Cemetery" from the book "Washington Co. Ky. Cemeteries Vol. III" (1988) - Located on Richard Russell farm, Russell Lane, off Texas-Mackville Road. I hope this helps a little. Best regards - Bill C.

Sorry, but that's about all I know at this point. Best regards, Bill C.

RE: Soldier John Combs
According to what I've seen, Soldier John was living with his son-in-law, Joseph Goode, in Washington County, where he is said to have died in 1848. He left any estate to Joseph and Nancy (his daughter)in his will (1845). He lived with them at the time of the will. The tie-in is John's wife Biddie. She is said to have died in 1838, in Washington County, Ky, and buried there in the Goode Family Graveyard, which appears to have been on the old Richard Russell farm. Recent information says he, and possibly Biddie were buried in Washington County, south of Russell Lane. My sister and cousin will be following up on a precise location in March. We're confident he and Biddie are in Washington County.
Note: Keep in mind that Josiah did not publish the book. He wrote a manuscript that was not complete. Combs family genealogists from S.E. KY finished it up. My sister and cousin are big believers in Josiah, and the info in the book is mostly correct. We just want to ensure the lineage through John "Merchant" is accurate.

RE: Soldier John Combs
Teh Richard Russell farm is not where Soldier John is. At least, that is recent info. He supposedly is south of Texas, off Beech Lane.. I've been to the County Clerks office, and They have no listing for where he's buried, as not all private cemeteries are listed. The Library used o have a book of listings, but it has been lost for several years. I'll keep trying.

RE: Soldier John Combs
Thanks for the info. Question: John and Nancy Combs Cemetery: where is it? I've been on Russell Lane, and the two cemeteries at the end of it are not where Soldier John supposedly is, or called the John and Nancy Combs Cemetery (from what I've heard them called by others).

Would you send me the GPS coordinates for him? I've been told that the "Goode" cemetery is not where he is. I've been told he is in the Combs-Greene Cemetery, south of Texas, just off Beech Ln.

Did you take the two pictures of his grave? I am very interested in the location of his grave. He is my direct descendant, through his son Jeremiah Long.
