Not my line, but this is interesting.I have a Thomas Polk born in 1771.He was the son of Captain Charles Polk, who died in Mecklinburg County, NC in 1821.I have this Thomas Polk listed as marrying Keziah Prior. I have virtually nothing else on them, but their son, Thomas Jefferson Polk, moved to Southwestern Lee County, Mississippi (very close to Chickasaw County, and not far from Monroe County).
What do you think?Sounds like she may have been Keziah Pyron to me after reading some notes with Mecklinburg County, the Polks, and Keziah all mentioned.
Would love to tie this back somehow.If you know her to be a Pyron, please let me know a little more about them.Some of T.J. Polks children married into my family.
The Thomas Polk mentioned earlier had a first cousin whose son was the Civil War General Leonidas Polk.Thomas Polk also had a first cousin whose son was James K. Polk, President.
