copy of original (torn document) w/both provided to Combs Researcher Thom
Notes: The above deposition was by Major Edward COOMBS I of Tonoloways (h/o
Rebecca STILLWELL). His reference to "uncle John COMES" appears to indicate
that Andrew HYNES' mother was sister to Major Edward and his brother, John
COMBS I of Tonoloways (h/o Alice JOLLY). The complainant would thus have been
John COMBS II, s/o John & Alice JOLLY Combs I. See also 1809 Nelson deposition
whereby Major Edward refers to his brother, John COMBS.
