SUSSEX COUNTY, DE Film #'s 0006674, 0006675*, 0006676 (earliest date 1767 - 1818) Location: Southernmost Delaware County today bordering Maryland Counties of Caroline, Dorchester, Wicomico and Worcester.

1790 May 31* Kent County Delinquents
John COOMBS Collector

DKM Note: This document appears as part of item #52 and appears to have been organized into the wrong county group by mistake.

Conclusion: No other COMBES mentioned in the three films mentioned above, meaning barring my human error in reading that there were NO COMBES in SUSSEX COUNTY DELAWARE in tax lists available from 1767-1818.
