Footnotes:

1 plotted in Lawrence Co- document stated Green Co. [nb: definitely Green Co MO, not Lawrence]

2 Probably Gideon, not Gidson, Combs.

3 This land is actually in Iowa, adjacent to Clark Co MO on the state line

4 Plotted as Cass Co, document notated Co as Pettis

MRW Notes: Some of these individuals were probably among a number of land speculators. Several of the Combs lines will be found following land acquisition in their westward movement. It is possible that some researchers will be able to find additional family members by finding a link to one of the Combs land speculators, not only in Missouri, but in other states as well.
