In Reply to: Holcombe families by Mary McCoy of 1076

I have the series of books, "The Families of Haywood County" based on the 1810 - 1880 censuses compiled and researched by Robert and Connie Medford. I have looked in my books and the earliest Holcombe families show up on the 1870 census. There are 8 as follows: Household #6-12, Aaron - age 59, b. S.C., Blacksmith; wife, Fatima - 59, b. S.C. Household #9-38, Benjamin - age 28, b. S.C., Farm hand; wife, Mary, b. S.C. Household #6-4 Charles - age 34, b. S.C., Farm hand; wife, Adeline - age 34, b. S.C.; daughter, Annie - age 9, b. S.C.; son, William - age 3, b. S.C. Household #3-15 Franklin M. - age 50, b. S.C., Farmer; wife, Amy (Cox)- age 41, b. S.C.; son Franklin Jr. - age 7, b. S.C.; daughter, Sarah - age 3, b. N.C. Living next door in household # 3-14 is Head - John Sr. Cagle - age 68, b. N.C., Farmer; (1st wife: Rachel Fox., B. 1801 N.C., married Oct 14, 1828) wife, Catherine (Holcombe) - age 28, b. S.C., married Nov.8, 1869; daughter, Pheba - age 12, b. S.C.; son, Henry - age 3, b. S.C.; brother-in-law, William Holcombe - age 24, b. S.C. Household #5-40, Hampton - age 36, b. S.C., Farmer; wife, Sarah "Sallie" - 32, b. S.C.; daughter, Martha J. - age 16, b. S.C.; son, Newton - age 12, b. S.C.; daughter, Mary Ann - age 8, b. S.C.; son, Jesse - age 6, b. S.C.; son, John C. - age 4, b. S.C.; son, Chat M. b. August 1869 N.C. Household #8-8 Joseph C. Jr. - age 21, b. S.C., Farm hand; wife, Elizabeth (Fowler)- age 24, b. S.C.; daughter, Harriet - age 1, b. S.C. Household #5-15, Rebecca (Swineford) Holcombe - age 57, b. N.C. Day Laborer; (Sp: Joseph C. Holcombe); daughter, Sarah - age 23, b. S.C.; daughter, Mary E. - age 22, b. S.C.; daughter, Rebecca - age 18, b. S.C.; daughter, Thursday - age 15, b. S.C.; daughter, Casranda - age 12, b. S.C.; granddaughter, Emma - age 2, b. S.C. You did not give a time line for your search. However I did notice on the 1880 census the following information which may be of interest to you. Household #11-99, Head - John C. Holcombe - age 34, b. S.C., father & mother both born in S.C., Farmhand; wife, Mary Elizabeth (Robinson) - age 25, b. N.C., father & mother both born in N.C., married April 8, 1875; daughter, Iola Rebecca - age 2, b. N.C.; daughter, Nancy - b. October 1879, N.C.; Domestic help, Narcissa Inman - age 14, b. N.C., father & mother both born N.C. If you have further questions just ask. I'll be happy to try to help.
