1808 Michael Combs, mentioned on an 1808 survey of a tract in Lynn, Northampton, PA.
JMW Notes: He was referred to as “late Michael Combs”. Don't know whether that means he had died or moved off the land. I checked the PA Archives and did not find a Michael Combs, or any other Combs, listed as having Warranted land in Northampton.
This survey says that the tract surveyed was formerly in Philadelphia, so if that is really true, then this tract would have to be in the very southernmost section of Northampton. It is most likely that Michael Combs purchased his tract from someone who had warranted it earlier.
Is this a New Jersey Combs? There are no Michaels known, to me, to be in the Tonoloway Combs.
Also Note: A Mich'l Comb is on the 1790 Census of Blockley Township, Philadelphia Co, PA
