Carol:I found your Mary Polly Weatherly in my line.She
was the dau. of Isaiah Weatherly born in MD in 1755, died 1818. Isaiah was married to Mary, b-1757-1818. Polly would have been born in Guilford Co., NC and first married Benjamin Fields, b-1768-1843, I didn't know about the Tucker.These are the children I have for them:
Benjamin Fields & Mary Polly Weatherly:
Mary E. Fields,
+ Denny Weatherly m-1807-1885
+ 2nd husband, Nathan Lenord
This is the son of my Job Parker Weatherly, born 1761
William M. Weatherly, b-8-1-1783,Guilford,NC, d-1836 Yalobusha Co., MS and married to a Fields.
also.The Weatherly line came from Somerset, MD., first
of the descendants was James Weatherly, b-1641.
William M. Weatherly married on abt. 8-16-1810, in Guilford Co., NC.:
Tabitha Fields, b-1785,in Guilford Co., NC,d-aft. 1860 MS.
This is from my genealogy book:In Guilford, NC, near
the Weatherlys, a large family of Fields lived all around
the Weatherlys located in the South Buffalo area.Wm. and
Tabitha's first child was Jeremiah F. born 5-10-1811.
possibly born in Guilford Co.William's father Job sold
land there in 1811 and the families possibly moved to
Maury Co., TN, paying taxes on 70 acres of land along with
William M. Weatherly, on the 1812 tax list of Maury Co., TN, paying tax on one "white poll," which means he was paying poll tax to vote.Job witnessed a document in Maury Co. in July, 1813.
Job and sons, William M. and Job Parker Weatherly, were on the 1830 Lauderdale, Co., AL census but the families were probably there much earlier.William sold 80 acres of land
in Lauderdale Co., (just south of the TN/AL state line)on
12-2-1831, and sometime thereafter moved to Yalobusha Co.,
MS, with Job Parker moving to Attala Co., MS. Subsequently,
William M. and Tabetha with Jeremiah and Mariah migrated to
Yalobusha Co., MS where they settled about two or three mi.
south of what is nor Water Valley, MS.
William M. and Tabetha, according to the will, had children: Jeremiah F., Mary F., Josiah or Joseph A, and
William M., Jr., but according to the 1830 cebsys there
was another dau. who was dead by 1836 when the will was
made in Yalobusha Co. The will was proved July 4, 1836,
so obviously William M., Sr. died in 1836 in MS at the
age of 53.
In the will, Wm. M, Sr. gave to his wife a Negro girl
named Thankful, to his son Jeremiah F. his Negro girl
named Patsy, and to his dau. Mary F. a Negro girl named
Cat or Caty.To his two younger sons, Joseph (Josiah) A.
and Wm. M, Jr. he willed one Negro boy named Mose to be
equally divided between them.Wm. M. Sr. gave his wife
one gray mare and one cow and calf, one bed and furniture and household furniture sufficient for her to live comfortably.To each of the children he gave a cow or cow and calf as the case may be.Also his wagon and steers
were to be used by his two youngest sons as long as they
stayed on the farm with their mother.
There were 310 ac. of land not mentioned in the will, but
which were evidently under the control of Tabetha.On a
deed dated 12-22-1838, in Yalobusha Co., Tabetha Weatherly
gave 150 acs. to her oldest son Jeremiah F. Weatherly, and it was witnessed by William and Allen Weatherly.On the
1840 Yalobusha Co., census Tabetha Weatherly was listed as
head of her household with two sons under the ages of 20-30, and one dau. between 15-20 yrs. of age.On Aug. 7, 1841, Allen Weatherly obtained judgement against Tabetha,
and eventually sold to Allen 160 ac, for $600 on 5-21-1844.
(There is a lot more to this family, and relocating again,
but I will send it on another posting, continued.)
