Adam or Mark Comer/Elliott: Rutherford Co., TN
Posted by: CindyAnn (ID *****3926) Date: September 21, 2003 at 06:46:33

I am trying to substantiate that the family of Mark Matthew Comer is a son to Adam Comer Sr. and brother to Adam Comer Jr. Listed in the LDS Family Search IGI Idv. Rec. is:

Mark Matthew Comer migration: SC>TN>MO
b: 10-25-1803 in SC
d: 5-2-1852 in Henry Co., MO
bur: Brown Cemetery, Tebo Twp., Henry Co., MO
father: Adam Comer
mother: Unknown

married: abt. 1832 in Rutherford Co., TN
Edna "Edney" Elliott migration: VA>TN>MO
b: 6-29-1804 Williamson Co., VA
d: 8-16-1875 Henry Co., MO
bur: Brown Cemetery, Tebo Twp., Henry Co., MO
d/o: Robert Elliot b: abt. 1786 Augusta Co., VA
Margaret Hamilton b: abt. 1788 Augusta Co., VA

Mark & Edna had the following known children:
1. Charles Thompson/Thomas Comer migration: TN>MO
m: Julia Ann "Lucy" Jolly MO>OK>TX
2. Sarah P. Comer migration: TN>MO
m: David Clark

after the birth of the first two children in Rutherford Co., TN Mark and Edna removed to Cooper Co., MO and had the following children:

3. Robert E. Comer migration: MO>
m: Amanda McFarland Barlow
4. Samuel P. Comer
5. William A. Comer
6. James R. Comer
7. John W. Comer
8. Adam Clark Comer
9. Newton Benjamin Comer migration: MO>OK>TX>NM
m: Ruth Jane Clark
10. Nancy M. Comer

My husband descends from Charles Thomas Comer>Joseph Columbus Comer>Thomas Wesley Comer>Tommye Opal Comer>Marlin Morgan.

I believe that Mark Matthew Comer is a son of Adam Comer Sr. and have been trying to connect it. I have repeatedly come across Adam Comer descendants in the TX and OK area that lived and visited with my husbands Comer relatives. For instance, I recently found a Buster B. Comer, son of Samuel and Sarah Comer. Samuel is the son of a Michael Comer who is the son of Adam Comer Jr., brother to Mark Matthew Comer. According to Census info these branches also lived close together. Does anyone see any connections or suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.
