Hi,
1880 Golden Pond, Trigg, KY
David Downs, b. KY, 54, farmer
Clarica, b. KY, 45
Emely J., b. KY, 24
Hariett, b. KY, 21
Ann Liza, b. KY, 18
James R., b. KY,16, farm work
Mary, b. KY, 13
Martha E., b. KY, 11
David T., b. KY, 7
Andrew, b. KY, 4

1850 Trigg Co. KY
David Downs, b. KY, 23, laborer
Clarisa, b. KY, 16
Benj F., b. KY, 9/12ths

A family tree shows the following as David's parents:

Benjamin Downs, b. abt. 1797 in Maryland and d. 12 Nov 1853 Trigg Co., KY
His wife was Elizabeth b. abt. 1796 in KY and died after June 1870.

However you need to prove that David was Benjamin and Elizabeth's son. One way to do this is to find Benjamin's will and probate records. The Trigg County Clerk has probate recordes back to 1820. You can ask them what they need from you so you can order a copy. Successful Searching!
