Subject: Re: [KYPERRY] Charles Woodrow Combs obit
Don't know if this is much of a lead or not , but , there is a Charlie Combs
born abt. 1912, in Perry Co., and he was the s/o John Combs (1878) and Patty
(Unknown) Combs born 1876.
Possible this Charlie Combs, could be Charles Curtis Combs? I do not have
a wife for Charlie Combs in my file.
