Margaret Caudill (m. William Riley Combs)
Posted by: J Waddell (ID *****3583) Date: April 15, 2007 at 17:31:30

I am trying to find out information about a Margaret Caudill, born November 1861 (according to 1900 census) and was married to William Riley Combs around 1882, probably in or near Letcher Co. They had at least 11 children:
George A, Sarah, Henry R. S., Juda, William R., Mary, Minnie L., Shadrack M., Granvel Pearl, Elijah, and Basil. Juda was my g-granny.

Margaret has been a mystery to us for years. The best I can do at this point is find the many possibilities and try to rule them out. If you have any information on the following Margaret Caudills, I would appreciate anything you can give me.

Margaret Caudill, daughter of Wilbern & Nancy Caudill. Listed in 1880 Letcher Co. census: Wilbern Caudill, age 68, b. in NC; Nancy, age 62, wife; Margaret, age 20, daughter. Margaret is only child living with them. They lived next to William W. Caudill household in that census.

Margaret Caudill, b. 1860 in Letcher Co, daughter of Benjamine Caudill & Mary Polly Bowling

Margaret Caudill, b. 1860 in Letcher Co; daughter of Henry R. S. Caudill and Mary Branson. I find this one particularly interesting, as my Margaret (m. Wm Riley Combs) named her son Henry R. S. Combs.

Margaret E. Caudill, b. 19 June 1859 in Letcher Co; dau. Abner Caudill and Mary Emily Justice

Margaret Caudill, b. 18 Dec 1861 in Letcher Co; dau. Henry C. Caudill & Elizabeth Short

Could any of these be the Margaret who married Wm Riley Combs? It also is a possibility that Margaret came from Native American lineage, as my g-granny Juda was very dark skinned, with very deep set eyes and high cheekbones, and reddish hair. She also smoked a pipe.

Thanks in advance for any help!
