Pearl Combs and Sallie Ann Sumner - Perry Co., KY

Acup Creek, Happy, Perry Co., KY
I have been trying to find the father of my great grandfather Pearl Combs; I finally got his death certificate today that says his father was Madison Combs, born in Knott County Kentucky. Since Pearl was born between 1870 and 1880, I don't think Madison could have been born in Knott County since it was not formed until 1884; was probably Perry County at the time of Madison's birth. Or, could have been Letcher, Floyd or Breathitt. Knott was formed from parts of all these counties.

Pearls mother was Adeline Combs, daughter of John D. Combs and Cynthia Ellis. Adeline and Mason were not married. She also had anothr son, Logan Combs, out of wedlock by another Combs man.

Now, does anyone have info as to who this Madison Combs might be. Adeline's brother, John W. Remine Combs married Mary Combs, daughter of Jeremiah Combs and Sarah Sally Kelly. I am wondering if this Madison could be their son James Madison Combs.

Any info would be appreciated.
