Has anyone checked out the listing on these two? In the U.S. General Land Office Records 1796-1907 at Ancestry.com I found one for a Major A. Polland Issured in 23 Apr 1821 in Arkansas for 160. If you look for this in the Arkansas Land Records the document # is wrong. It's 24127 but the U.S. General Land office records says that it was an incorrect warrant # on the document but was verified from tract books.
Also I looked at the U.S. Army Register of Emlistments for 1798-1914 and there was a Major A. Polland age 27 (born about 1785)enlisted 17 June 1812, born in Wake Co., NC. Hewas a sgt but really couldn't make out the rest.He had blue eyes, dark hair and was fair complected about 5'10".
I also looked on the Ark census for 1919 to 1870 and there is a Alfred Polland in Pope Co. in 1837.
Someone let me know there thoughts if these two men could be the same.
My husband is a descendant of Alfred and his 1st wife through Alfred's daughter francis that married Andrew M. Couch in 1862in Johnson co. Ark.
