  • Name Polly Wanless 
    Born 1800-1803  (probably) Bath Co, Virginia Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Female 
    Died Bef 1842  [1
    Notes 
    • Birth calculation: In 1810 census, she is the only possibility for a female child under 10 because her sisters are married or are close to marriage, as we know from marriage bonds, so she had to have been born in 1800 or later. Assuming she was at least 15 when she married, she can't have been born after Jan. 1803.

      Marriage license: Levi Moore consents for son Samuel. Teste Charles Grimes. Consent for daughter Polly signed by Ralph and Lucretia Wanles.

      No Samuel & Polly (or Margaret/Mary/Ann & other Polly names) in 1850 VA census; searched all Samuel Moores in VA. He may have died & she may have remarried. Should see if he had a will probated.

      No 1850 VA census record for Alex. Campbell in Pendleton, Highland, or Pocahontas Co.
      "History of Highland County" says he died in 1845.
