Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been an avid genealogist in Perry Co. for over 35 years. I have researched my family in Letcher, Perry, Breathitt, Magoffin, Morgan, Leslie, Clay, Lee and Owsley counties. I have research on the Campbell, Couch, Dixon, Combs, Cornett, Feltner, Williams, Whitely, Haney, Gullet and others that came into my family as I researched. I became a member of FAG while trying to find my grandfather's lost grave in Magoffin Co. My husband and I started taking pictures of the cemeteries in Perry Co. to help people find their lost loved ones. We are attempting to photograph the cemeteries in Perry county. I will do transfers within the four Generation FAG guideline that include: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents and great grandparents. Sorry, no transfers to aunts, uncles or cousins. PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR TRANSFERS NOT IN YOUR DIRECT LINE. I try to be accommodating but I will not tolerate rudeness. If any of my memorials need to be edited, please contact me using the edit button. Also I will try to help if you are having trouble research your family members. Thanks

Fugates, Combs and Ritchies

I found your memorial of J.D. Fugate. My mom used to know his dad Dewitt Fugate. His mom Dora Ritchie is related somehow to my grandmother Parrott (Ritchie) Combs. I am the genealogist of my family too! I have lots of info but any info on Fugates, Combs, Ritchies, or Campbells (who I'm also related to) I would be happy to hear about! Thanks for all your info!

Puckett Family Cemetery
I want to thank you for putting the Puckett Family Cemetery on Findagrave. I had been there way back in the 1970s looking for the final resting places of my family. I was only able to find Morgan and Susan Puckett. I am a direct descendant of Morgan and Susan Puckett through their son Benjamin Gardner Puckett who is known as Pard Puckett in my family. Pard's wife is Emmeline Nancy Holmes, daughter of Samuel Hanks Holmes and Elizabeth Gibbs, who also lived in Breathitt County. Samuel Hanks Holmes is a son of John Holmes and Elizabeth Hanks of Powell County and Elizabeth Gibbs is a daughter of Nathan Gibbs and Nancy Jane Lipps of Wolfe County. I have also done a lot of research on Morgan and Susan's children. Meredith Puckett has interested me as well. I also know about the Maloney children he adopted. It is my suspicion that they are actually his children. I have a picture of his daughter Martha Puckett and she sure looks like a Puckett to me. At any rate, thank you so much.

RE: Roy L. Davidson
Yes it is odd about Roy keeping the Davidson name. Guess we will never know. There are a couple of other family trees that list Arlie and Lucy as Roy's parents. Probably from the 1920 census.
Thanks again for shedding light on this. If anything else comes to light will share the info.

RE: Roy L. Davidson
Thank you for the history on Roy L Davidson. This clears up most of the mystery, except why he kept the name Davidson.
When I saw him listed as a son of Arlie and Lucy on the 1920 census, I was surprised that my husband, Samuel (born 1931) had never known about Roy. Fortunately a link took me to your site.
I spoke with the only family left alive a few days ago and was told she thought Arlie and Lucy raised him but didn't know details.
She knew Bessie, gave us her phone number, but she was gone.
Bessie must be 98 or 99 now.
Lucy lived with us in California the last 8 years of her life, but never mentioned Roy being a part of their early family.
When I saw his photo on your website, I thought he could be a blood relative since (in the photo) he bears a close resemblance to Samuel L.(Arlie and Lucy's 1931 son.).
You have seen Roy's 1914 birth certificate, so this is unlikely The Davidsons son.
Do you know when Roy moved back with his mother?
Also did he ever live in Sacramento California?
When Lucy lived with us -we visited a relative there who had a son named Roy- this would have been in the very early 1960's.

Thank you again for clearing this up for me

Roy L. Davidson
I see there is a photo and gravestone of Roy L. Davidson
It says his father was -Rennie Woodson Couch. Mother was
Annie Couch Sloane. In ancestry records his father is
Arlie Davidson and Mother is Lucy Davidson. He is listed at 5 years old in the 1920 census as living with them. Do you know which is accurate. Some say Arlie and Lucy just raised him. Would like to find more information. I am married to his possible brother Samuel

RE: William and Elizabeth Combs
William Wallace Combs & Elizabeth Johnson Combs are buried in Perry County, KY.
Their daughter, Sue G Combs Wilson is buried in Louisville, KY at Evergreen Cemetery.
She moved to Louisville after her husband Jasper Wilson died.

Susanna Proffitt Dixon
Her death date is probably incorrect. Her name does not appear on the census reports for 1850, 1860, 0r 1870. Probable death date 1844.

RE: Neace Cemetery, Perry Co. Ky.
There are three Neace Cemeteries in Perry Co. The one I created is this one:

It says Grapevine, Perry Co. I don't think I can put two cities. It gives a drop down list of cities that include both Grapevine and Bonneyman. And it doesn't appear that I can change that, only the lat/lon and description. If you want it changed I guess you could send Admin an email requesting it. Sorry.

Thank you for posting the picture of the cemetery in which my sister, Goldie Jean is buried in Perry County (Duff Family Cemetery). Is there any chance you can get a picture of her headstone? There is no hurry, but I would dearly love one. Thank you. Jack Bradow
