To Linda Lee Vickers and any others related to this family. I think I've finally found my Mary Ann "Polly" Tinker. A gracious woman and another man from Memphis wrote me and suggested I was looking for Polly Tinker born 1830 to Jesse and Alice "Ally" Norris Tinker.Finally!!! I do think this is correct. Jesse P.Tinker & Ally Norris were married 9 Jun 1823.He died in the Civil War and later Alice Tinker was living next door to Mary Runions both with the same children I have listed. This is the 1870 census of 18th district in the post office of Indian Creek.Indian Creek is definately where my family had land, after moving from Flag Pond area in the 1860 census.So it would make since if Alice's husband had died by 1870 census and she was my Mary's mother, she would be living next door.My Mary is 38 yrs. old and ALice is 64 yrs. old in this census.Oh also Linda, this is the census where George S. is listed as 2 yrs. old.I think you had this info, but we hadn't connected this Mary to Polly who possibly could be daughter of Jesse P. Tinker and Alice Ally Norris.You see this all ties in as P. in Jesse's name is for Parks, which ties into my William Parks family.So finally we're starting to tie all this together.I also think if we could find more of census info on these two families it doesn't show what is usually listed, usually listed if widowed or married & that would help with this.For Mary especially to show if she was listed as M or W, for help on if William Esquire "Squire" Runnion (Runions) was alive or dead in 1870.
