SE Note: M/3/24/1778 refers to Minute/Order Book followed by the date of the record.
Notes: It is not known as yet why John Combs, Jr. and Sarah LUTTRELL did not marry immediately. There is no evidence that either were already married; however, that there was some kind of bar to the marriage seems probable given that at some time between 1773 and 1777, John and Sarah LUTTRELL Combs, did marry. If the above record is accurate, then she was the daughter of Richard LUTTRELL of Fauquier County who d by 1766, the same Sarah who was underage in 1764 when her father signed his will.
