Anyone familiar with Brandenburgs in 1880 Owsley census? I need to know the
name on the head of household below. It's hard to make out. I think the
Couch lady is first wife of my gg-grandp Harvy and would like to know more
about her. Her name was Pheba Spencer on their marriage bond, Lee Co. 1871
and it appears to say second marriage.
