Michigan became part of the Northwest Territory in 1787 (1783 Treaty of Paris). In 1800 it became part of Indiana Territory, specifically Wayne County, the only original county when Michigan Territory was established in 1805. The following is an initial report of early Combs in Michigan. Note that Combs Research of Michigan has been minimal thus far (although the following does not include all Michigan Records), and researchers should also search our Combs Research List Archives.
