      1749 Frederick Co, MD Petition. "This [1749] petition thus marked the beginning of the Liberty Road, Maryland State Route 26, from Mt. Pleasant... to Taylorsville (Burnt House Woods.)... But the large number of others signing this petition shows how rapidly after 1743 the settlement grew. These included Joseph WOOD of Linganore... John PHILLIPS... John HOWARD, son of Gideon, and Philip HOWARD...Stephen RICHARDS... Patrick HOLLIGAN... James BROWN... Matthias STALCAP... Robert BIRCHFIELD... Solomon SPARKS...

(Excerpted from PIONEERS OF OLD MONOCACY; THE EARLY SETTLEMENTS OF Frederick County, Maryland, 1721-1743; Tracy and dern; Gen. Pub. Co.; Balt. 1987 (and other sources) by Combs Researcher Thom Mont)

      "January the 10th 1752(3) Richard COOMES administrator of Richard COMES late of Frederick County deceased being duly sworn on the Holy Evangelicals of Almight God deposes and says that the Within is a Just and true Inventory of all and Singular the goods and Chattles which were of the Deceased at the Time of the making thereof..."

      Richard Combs 33.82 A FR 32.0.6 33.6.4 Oct 18 1752
      Payments to: Rachel Sprigg (executrix of Osborn Sprigg), George Gordon, Daniel Dulany, John Darnall.
      Administrator: Richard Combs.

      Notes: Combs Researcher Sharon Ray notes that according to Sr. Mary Donnelly's "Imprints," a 1752 inventory was recorded for Richard COMBS who died without a will in 1752, nearly 100 y. old with his inventory mentions kin: sons, Richard COOMBS, Jr. and John Clement COOMBS. It appears that Sr. Donnelly has confused Richard I with Richard II, particularly since Richard I appears to have been deceased by 1747/8.
