Spartanburg County was established in 1785 from the Old 96th District. To its north was the state of North Carolina, to its east was Greenville SC.


Background: Although this is a Combs &c. Report, and emphasis should on Combs and Combs-Associated Families, in this case, it may be somewhat "weighted" toward the Cannon-Hammett-Mason-Underwood Families who also came to Spartanburg SC from Surry Co, NC, but before that were most recently from Culpeper Co VA and, moving back in time: Fauquier > Prince William > Stafford > Richmond Cos, VA where the Combs, Hammetts, Masons and Underwoods are found living adjacent to each other. Same ones? Who knows? Not us. Not yet. (See Also Hammett Families. See Also Underwood Families. See Also Combs Counties)
