MY MOM WORKED FOR THE MANS MOTHER THROUGH THE HEALTH DEPT BETWEEN 88-91 , SHE TOLD ME THE MAN GOT SCARED SO BAD HE TURNED TO RUN OUT WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS THE DOOR BUT WAS THE WINDOW. IT BROKE BOTH HIS LEGS AND CRIPPLED HIM FOR LIFE,BUT HE LIVED FOR MANY MORE YEARS.SHE WILL NOT POST HIS NAME,BUT SAYS THE FALL DEFINITELY DIDN'T KILL HIM
I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND DETAILS ABOUT MY GRANDMOTHERS MURDER. HER NAME WAS LILLIE COMBS. SHE WAS MARRIED TO JAMES HURST COMBS. SHE DIED IN 1954. HE DIED IN 1981. MY MOTHER IS BESSIE COMBS AND MY NAME IS LILLIAN COMBS. THIS HAPPENED IN PERRY COUNTY KENTUCKY. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRSIATED.
There was a killing, shoot out actucally in Glomar in the 80's, where some were killed. As to the shooting in Buckhorn, you need to talk to Pat Wooton, the former Perry County Sheriff as it happened in his front yard and he was witness to it all, is my understanding. The one in Glomar, call the jail and talk to Ulis Combs, as he was there, almost got shot and killed himself that day. And I think there was a hanging in Knott County many years ago, the KKK supposodly killed a black man for raping a white women, they hung him from a tree in what is now known as Fishermen. Don't know if it is true, but I have heard it my whole life. As to the Cop in Vicco, i'm not sure, I am from there but I could ask my dad, he was born and raised in Allock, and he would know I would think. My great uncle used to be a cop out there as well, so did my grandfather, lol. Very small town...that was afer Vicco calmed down,,,

my brother-in-law was shot and killed at Jess Engle's bar at Ary,and it seemed like it was over a pool game and a 10.00 bill..The ten dollar bill was found in my brother-in-laws pocket.. He may have won the money but he paid with his life..He left behind a very young and pregnant wife..
Hmm, Fitz Steele's daddy was coroner at one time as well, then Mark Engle fit in there somewhere...Anyway, there was a shootout up Glowmarw several years ago, where a Deputy was shot and killed, and a Trooper was shot and was paraliyzed. The man who shot them was shot and killed also. I think a little boy may have been shot as well if memory serves me correctly....
My grandfather was murdered on Lost Mountain in 1989. Elhanon Jones Jr was his name, people knew him as Junior or Catman. He owned a coal trucking business. I know before he died he was in several shoot outs. One on Duane mountain.
there was a shootout in glomawr back in the 60s between the police and a guy named tommy ;cant remember his last name.there was several people killed in this.tommy barricated himself in the house.cant remember all the details.
can anyone remember when tommy kilburn owned the chat-n-chewand lightening owned the bar in jeff?they had guns and shot each others place up all the time.i heard tommy died in prison.he was in there for blowing up the mayors house i think.
TXXXXX, I think the shootout you spoke of at Glomawr was in the 80's and involved Tommy Allen Combs and the dep. sheriff Alex Eversole and the state trooper who was paralized. Combs and Eversole died as did a young boy in the house Combs barricaded himself in.I don't remember what the troopers name was but it was something like Hunsacker.

I remember my grandfather telling me about this. According to him he was there and watched it happen. I've never known him to tell a lie.

does anyone remember when the perry county library used to be a morgue and a body had a muscle reaction and it scared the coroner, mortision or whatever so bad that he fell out the window of the top story and it killed him?
That happened at the old Mount Mary Hospital, they had a man killed in a mine accident and he died setting up and it took them a while to recover his body so they taped it on a board and when they started washing him to have a funeral they tape got wet and he set up, my mom was the one who washed him up, a black man named Arco was helping her and he jumped out of the window, but he didn't hurt himself bad.
yep your right;there was a boy hurt in another house.i was thinking it was farther back than that.do you know what it was for.what did he do?
Yes, there was a young boy hit with a stray bullett. Alex Eversole was my cousin and was the first one through the door followed by the state trooper. Mr. Combs had a .30 cal carbine with 30 round clips taped end to end. Alex was shot and so was the trooper, after he shot them he prceeded to shot back at the police from the window. Alex had dropped his shotgun when he was shot and it was laying near the trooper who picked it up and shot Mr. Combs several times before he went down. Thats the way I remember my family talking about what happened shortly after the shootout.
I have heard a story about a motorcycle gang coming in a bar in Vicco and trying to take over back in the late 60's maybe early 70's . I dont know if there is any truth to it but I have heard there was several of the motorcycle gang killed and some of them burried on Lotts Creek. Anyone have any info on this.
