OK, in Barren Co. KY, there’s a marriage record of a William Hendrick marrying Mary “Polly” Mansfield on 16 Feb 1818.
Other records show that this Mary Mansfield is a daughter of William Mansfield Jr, born abt 1776, Rockingham, VA and Mary Catherine Feland.
I’m researching the Hendricks line. My gggf is William Hendrick, born ca 1798 in KY according to all census records., who married Mary H (Unknown), born in VA ca 1798 in all census records except for one, which shows her 9 years younger than William.
My William and Mary had 4 sons that we know of for sure; Hezekiah, born 1818 KY, William Henry, born 15 Oct 1819 KY, James Daniel, born 1824 MS, and Marion H, born June 1834, MS. There are some unidentified daughters. One researcher claims a daughter by the name of Elizabeth Ann.
There are several gedcom files on ancestry and other sites which show that Mary Polly Mansfield as the Mary that married my William, the mother of Hezekiah, William Henry, James Daniel and Marion. When questioned, the general answer is they have no documentation other than this marriage record.
If anyone out there has any information on this, I have much information to share. We have my William and Mary’s descendants pretty well documented but have been stuck at this brick wall for several years.
Thanks in advance for any information regarding this.
