Hello.You answer your own question.You ask for the parents of Mary Bean b abt 1827 Arkansas.You list as one of John R Bean's heirs, Polly.Polly was not a real name given to girls, it was what we would call today a nickname, it was in fact a diminuative of Mary.Just as Bob stands for Robert and Bill for William, Polly stands for Mary, Peggy for Margaret, Lizzie for Elizabeth and so on. John R Bean born 1780/1790 died Apr 1835 in Jefferson Co, Arkansas.He Married Nancy Reed 12 Nov 1817 in Livingston Co, Kentucky.Their oldest child Lydia was born 6 Dec 1818in Kentucky and died 27 Apr 1893in Jefferson Co, Arkansas.She had married 18 Jan 1834 in Jefferson Co, Arkansas to Stephen Hughes who you see as the guardian of Mary.He was her uncle you see. Stephen Hughes possibly died by 1845, because Lydia remarried to James Guy Hooker 29 Sep 1845 in Jefferson Co, Arkansas. Your Mary Ann "Polly" Bean married 20 Feb 1845to Owen R Rozier. Can you tell me how you descend from Mary Bean?Thank you.
