He's not from Kentucky. He moved here for a while as a kid. Smh
The article said he was born across river in Ohio (I assumed it was old Lawrence Co hospital in Ironton) but lived on Hilton Ave in Ashland first few years of his life. Unfortunately, that is From Ashland.

This is an old interview with Manson's mother from 1971. I'm still not clear how long he and his mother lived in lived in Cincinnati.She says she left Ashland for Cincinnati to give birth to Charles.She also says she left Charles stepfather a few months after Charles birth and moved back to Ashland. Charles left Ashland at the age of 4 to move in with relatives in West Virginia.It appears Manson lived in Ashland from about the age of 3 to 6 months until he was 4.

Mrs. Manson began to cry, but continued. Her mother sent her with her sister to Cincinnati, to have the baby away from Ashland, and while awaiting the baby, she accepted the marriage proposal of William Manson, so the baby would have a name.
The baby was born Nov. 11, 1934, and was listed on the birth certificate as no name Moddox, after his mothers maiden name. But that was not out of indifference, Mrs. Manson said, but because she was awaiting the arrival of her mother in Cincinnati.
I figured Id already hurt her pretty bad, so I wanted to let her name the baby, you see. So she named him after my father. A few weeks later, she had the birth certificate changed to Charles Milles Manson.
Her young husband had said he would try to accept the child, she recalled, but after a few months it became obvious he was jealous of the time she spent on the baby, and once beat her up. She left Manson, returned to her mother in Ashland and began divorce proceedings.
She also returned to an angry Col. Scott.
She hoped to marry Scott, she said, but her mother, disapproving because her divorce from Manson wasnt final, stymied that by informing Scott of the birth and her marriage. Scott, too furious to wait for the divorce, married another woman a few days later.
But all that stuff you read about Charles not knowing who his father was, thats not so. Scott used to come and pick up Charles and take him home for weekends with his own child. He took Charles home six or seven times like that and just loved him, she said.
Scott died in 1954 of cancer, Mrs. Manson said. When Charles was 4, Mrs. Manson left Ashland for McMechen, W.Va., and the boys contact with his real father was broken. But always he was surrounded by family his mother, his grandmother, an aunt and an uncle.
