    Notes 
    • John Comer died in 1828 leaving a wife and children (none were named in the will). Polly Comer is listed in the 1830 Census age 40-50 with eight children. Living beside Polly are Thomas Comer (age 20-30) and Henry Cagle and wife Delilah Comer (both age 20-30). It is my belief that Polly was the widow of John and Thomas and Delilah were two of their unnamed children in the will.
