COMBS &c. Families of Hempstead, Queens-Nassau Cos, NY: "31 Jul 1716 NJ Deeds. John COMBS (and wife Elizabeth) of Freehold [Monmouth Co, NJ] to Richard SLLIFON (SLLISON, ELLISON) of Hempstead Twp, Long Island for L50, 96 acres land purchased from John EMMONS on 4 May 1716, originally owned by Nathaniel SLOCUM. Witnesses: John REID & Wm. MADOCK. Memorandum attached verifies (proves) the deed dated Jan 23, 1732, Wm. MADOCK's testimony. (Combs Researcher Kate C. DiBlassio)
Notes: This was likely John COMBS I, s/o Richard I. No record is found of him after 1706 in Hempstead (the next record of a John not being until 1740 (which is also a record with a Richard ELLISON!), and he appears to have removed to Monmouth where he disappears from that county's records after Oct 1727. Also note that the 15 year delay in proving this deed may have come about as the result of John having either removed from Monmouth or died. Also note the Richard ELLISON of 1769 Hempstead (below) was a Quaker."
