I am also a direct decendent of the Polattys.My Great-Grandfather was James Pleasant Polatty(1826-1900) who lived in Saluda County S.C. His third wife was Susan Jane Marbut(1845-1901.) He died in 1900 in Saluda.His wife died April 22, 1901. I am not certain if she was still living in Saluda or not.They are both buried in the Dorn-Polatty plot, however no one is exactly sure where that is.I am hoping someone with Polatty ties may know.Ihave a feeling it is somewhere between Saluda and McCormick, S.C. but it is only a feeling, no proof.
Would love some serious input on this matter. My Grand-Mother was Minnie Lou Polatty Rawls.She was next to the youngest of the girls that lived.
