COMBS &c. Families of Hempstead, Queens-Nassau Cos, NY: " Apr 1740 -21 Aug 1740. Hempstead Records 3:228. Deed. Richard ELLISON Sr. to Richard ELLISON, Jr., both of Hempstead, land in Hempstead. Witnesses: John COMES, by mark, and Peter TITUS Jr.; both grantor and grantee lived in Hempstead. acknowledged 21 Aug 1740; no date of recording. (GDAC, 1925).
Notes: This 1740 record is the first Hempstead Record of a John COMBS presented by GDAC since the 1706 deed, a full 34 years later. Note, however, that on 1716, John COMBS and wife Elizabeth of Freehold, Monmouth Co, NJ, deeded land in Freehold to Richard ELLISON of Hempstead Twp. Is this John COMBS I (Richard1) returned to Hempstead, or perhaps his son? (GDAC is confusing in this regard). Is Richard ELLISON, Sr. the same who was deeded land by John in 1716 in Freehold, Monmouth Co, NJ?"
