*Please note I can take this family back further to the patriarch and matriarch Moses McComas and his wife Lucy Napier if anyone is interested. I am posting this because, although I am not a McComas researcher--this line is in my Heath family database and I was working on it and found some dead ends and some info I thought would be helpful to others.
