SE Note: This entry for one Abigail KOONS is included because the mother of Michael Combs (who married Polly EDWARDS in Wayne Co. on 1/1/1818) was supposedly Abigail KOONS that married a Job Combs. It is interesting there was a household headed by an Abigail KOONS only a few doors from Michael Combs. Could she be the widowed mother of Michael Combs or could she be a relative?
