Hiram McComas Jr b 1849 Platte MO-CA-AZ (Moses McComas/Lucy Napier line)
Am interested in talking with any descendants of the Hiram McComas line out of Platte that went to early California and then on to Maricopa Co Arizona.
Moses McComas married Lucy Napier and had Hiram McComas Sr. He died in Platte co MO but several of his children took off for early California: Rush McComas in 1861 via the Panama Canal on steamer, Charles Lee McComas and his mother Rebecca (Hatfield) McComas in 1863 via wagon train out of Ft Leavenworth, and apparently young Hiram McComas Jr born 5 March 1849 Platte Co MO who died and was buried in the City of Mesa Cemetery in Maricopa Co AZ. Young Hiram married an Anna Lloyd born ca 1854 OR whose parents came from CT and NJ. They were somewhere in CA (never found them on 1880 census) up until at least 1891 when Ruth was born, then appear to have moved to Arizona. I believe Hiram was copper mining. They had four children, three are buried in the graveyard with the parents:
Ina McComas Oct 20 1883 CA
Roy McComas Jan 19 1885 CA (headstone wrong-see 1910 census AZ
Fay McComas Aug 25 1888 CA
Ruth McComas b.ca. 1891 CA
