About Joseph Combs, Sr.

23 Jan 1750/1 - 22 Apr 1751 (Prince William Co VA DB M:168) “Edward LAWRENCE of Prince William County and Parish of Hamilton hath sold one negro girl named Cate aged about 10 years which I do warrant … said negro girl and her increase to Jno. Combs of the parish and county aforesaid and to his heirs it being for value Recd. as witness my hand this 23rd day of Jany. 1750. s/Edward [X] LAWRANCE [sic]. Test. Howson KENNER, John [+] De La SHUMATE, Benja. BULLETT, John LAWRANCE. At a court held for the county of Prince William the 22 day of Apr 1751, this deed was proved by the oath of John De La SHUMATE, John LAWRENCE and Benjamin BULLETT witnesses thereto and admitted to record. On margin: “7 Nov. 1752 Dd. [delivered] Jno. Combs PW.”

(Extracted by Combs Researcher C. Hammett from “Prince William Co, VA Deed Abstracts, 1749-1752, and 1761-1764,” Ruth and Sam Sparacio, Antient Press, McLean, VA)

Note: This is believed to have been John Combs, Sr. of Stafford & Prince William Cos, VA, s/o Joseph Combs I of Stafford Co VA and h/o Seth BULLITT, d/o the above Benjamin BULLITT. See also Edward LAWRENCE in records with Combs in later Fauquier Co, VA. Also note that some researchers have termed the above record a Deed of Gift (not) and claimed (erroneously based on bad assumption?) that Edward LAWRENCE was grandfather of John Combs, Sr.
