Blended DAVID McComas 1) Maryland 2) Virginia 1720's
I suspect history has blended TWO different David McComas both born in the 1720's but one born in Harford County, Maryland, other born in New Kent County, Virginia.
I'm descended from the David McComas who married Catherine Burk 20 May 1754 in Augusta Co, VA.One source has him as John David McComas.One source has him born in New Kent County, VA while other sources show him born in Harford County, Maryland.
Alexander McComas and Elizabeth Day McComas were both born in Baltimore County Maryland in the part near present-day Abingdon in what became Harford County Maryland in 1773.All their other children were born in present-day Harford.
After the death of Elizabeth Day McComas in 1725, Alexander McComas married Hannah Whitaker 23 Aug 1728 and had 3 more children all born in the part of Baltimore County that became Harford Co Maryland.
David McComas #1: son of Alexander McComas & Elizabeth Day and born in Baltimore County Maryland.Married Died but his dates and locations have been blended with
David McComas #2: son of McComas, and born in St Peter's Parish, New Kent County, Virginia.Married Catherine Burk 20 May 1754 in Augusta Co, VA.He died in Giles or Montgomery Co VA.His family were already in Cabell Co VA, when it was formed 1809 from Montgomery County.
Please help me sort out which David is Which.
