Susannah Coombs was the daughter of a fisherman who like many others in early Marblehead owned a lot of land. She and Francis Grant married and had several children, almost all of whom grew to adulthood and had families of their own. We have records of the births and marriages of the children, but as is frequent, not the deaths. Francis left a will that named his five surviving children: Henry, John, Mary (the last born), Sarah, and Jane. He left one-sixth of his estate to the children of his recently deceased son, Francis, Jr., but interestingly nothing to the grandchildren of his other deceased children. Susannah survived him.
Proof of relationship is is established in the vital records and the will of Francis.
The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.
The research on this family is compete.
