THERE IS A MUSEUM BEING PUT TOGETHER IN HAZARD.THE LAST TIME I WAS THERE THEY HAD GATHERED A LOT. I'M SURE YOU COULD CALL THE CLERK'S OFFICE AND GET THEIR PHONE #. THE MAN THAT STARTED IT(BILLY)IS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT HAZARD.
WHAT ARE THE NAMES OF MARVIN'S PARENTS? I DIDN'T FIND THAT NAME ON THE TREE BUT PERHAPS HIS PARENTS ARE LISTED.
HAVE YOU BEEN TO HAZARD OR DO YOU RESIDE THERE?

I hope you can help me find my relatives from Hazard. My fathers name was Charles and he was born in Hazard. His father was John Olinger and his mother was Amanda Couch Olinger. My greatgrandmother lived in a hollow with her daughter Ollie Taylor. They are all deceased now. We visited Hazard every summer on vacation. My father moved to Connecticut in the 1940s.I don't know too much of my ancestry other than my dad told me we related to the Combs family and the Couch family and were cousins. They all lived in the same hollow. I remember meeting many of them but I was too young to remember their names. I would love to hear from you and share any info I can. Thank You Brenda

Olinger - Combs

There is a Olinger Cem on Shoemaker Ridge in Lee County Ky near Fincastle. My GG Grandparents, Nicholas (Shanghai Nick) and Eliza Williams COMBS are buried there. He died 1914 and she died sometime in the 1930's. As far as I know there are no markers. But I have some Death certs stating some of the Combs buried there. Do you know of any Olinger-Combs connections? My email address is LyndaCGKyCol@aol.com

thanks
Lynda
