Can anyone document the tie between Nancy Alderson b: ca 1766, Virginia, daughter of Benedict Alderson and Ann Cole, with Elizabeth ? (Alderson) b: 1766 North Carolina ?
There is a John Polk who is well documented in York Co., South Carolina. John Polk and Nancy Alderson are documented in the will of Benedict Alderson, additionally a John Polk who died 1809, leaves his estate with widow "Nancy" including his unborn son John A. Polk, Mecklenburg, North Carolina. They appear to be the same person and my speculation is Nancy was the daughter of Benedict b: 1845 Richmond, Virginia.
Researchers have claimed Nancy Alderson is the same person, "Elizabeth" ? who married my ancestor John Polk b: 1767, John Polk moved to Maury Co., Tennessee from North Carolina in abt 1805, where he died, 24 May 1845. I do not think this Elizabeth was Nancy Alderson but would love to discover the facts if I am wrong.
