Re: Joseph Cavin, TN to MO family
Joseph H. Cavin was my GGG-Gpa.I have seen and have photo's his gravestone in the Burdette / Cavin cemetery.
Mary and Polly may have been the same person.Polly and Molly were very commonly used as nicknames for Mary.
I have no date for Polly's amrriage to Joseph. She died 3 Apr 1824.
Polly is listed to have had four children: Livy Ann; William Clinton (my GG-Gpa); Mannervy OR Minerva and Joseph.
Joseph then married Hannah Keele, who died 1 May 1863.I have seen and have photo's of her gravestone also.They supposedly had eleven children.
I have info Joseph married Mary 31 Apr 1866, but have never seen the proof.They had no children.
There is another wife listed in some places named Margaret Wallard.She is reported to have been his first wife and may have died in child birth.
I do not know who James Keele was, or what relation he was to Polly.But, I have not completely submerged myself into Dr. Burdett's book yet.
