Susan & Arizona Halcomb

Susan & Arizona Rice - Halcomb Photo taken about 1907 Upper Poorfork, Harlan County, Kentucky.

Susan Halcomb the daughter of Daniel & Lettshia (Wells) Halcomb was born about 1889 around Poor Fork, Harlan County, Kentucky. 

1900 Census shows Daniel & Lettshia Halcomb living on Upper Poorfork, Harlan County, Kentucky with their daughter Susan age 11.  I know of 3 other daughters of Daniel who all died young.

1910 Census shows Daniel & Lettshia Halcomb living in the Cumberland region of Letcher County, Kentucky.  Susan who is 21 years old at the time is living with them and using the last name of Rice, she has two small children Arizona and Otis and is listed as Divorced.

1920 Census shows Daniel & Lettshia Halcomb living again in Upper Poorfork, Harlan County, Kentucky.  Susan age 31 is listed with the last name Rice and as widowed is living in the house along with her two children Arizona age 13 and Otis age 10.

I do not know what happened to Susan after this point.  I know she lived as I have photos of her as an old woman, she must have remarried and probably to a man by the name of Halcomb as she later has two more children with the name Halcomb and Arizona and Otis take the name of Halcomb.

Arizona married a man by the name of Pleasant Mosley. Pleasant and Arizona Mosley can be found in the 1940 United States Federal Census on Miller Branch, Breathitt County, Kentucky.  The two children Ruby and Velma are listed as well as Pleasant's father Joby Mosley.

Arizona Rice or Halcomb Mosley died May 3, 1950 in Barwick, Breathitt County, Kentucky.
