Searching info on a "Josephine Holcombe. born 1858, probably from England or West Indies. 1880 Census shows Josephine as a servant for "Thomas Franklin Hughston" (born 1830). Josephine had a son "John J. Holcombe", my grandfather. She married a Carey Hunter in 1881 in South Carolina.

John J Holcombe was born in 1874. There is no record as to what happen to him until he shows up in 1900 when he is married to Catherine Howell.

The Hughston's changed their name so there is record of them. I would like to know who was Josephine Holcombe, where did she come from, and how she came about being a servant to the Hughstons.

Any Help would appreciated. Thank you
