Re: Mary Florence Pollard
Oral history within our family indicates that Mary Florence Pollard's parents came to live with her in Coryell County, TX and both died there.My uncle told the following story:
Florence's parents came from Tennessee to Osage (year Unknown) and lived with George and Florence.Grandpa Pollard was something of a character and he and Grandma Pollard separated but continued to live in the same house.He was said to have pierced Grandma Pollard's ears.He wore a pair of big boots and drove a surrey pulled by two horses, and seems to have thought quite well of himself.He is buried in the Clemons lot at the Osage Cemetery, but there is no stone.Grandma Pollard is also buried there.Date of their deaths and their ages are unknown.
Nothing else is known about the Pollards except one time some kinfolk came to see George and Florence and Florence told them to get going. Aunt Cora is said to have gotten mad at her mother when she did this.
