Re: David 1806-1887 Steuben County NY
This is Barbara McDonald who sent you some Kentucky information.I'm interested in the origin of the Pollay name.One of my Polley ancestors thought the family was originally French and called himself la Pollay (sp?).I have heard this from two different branches of the family.However I have no idea who this could be as I cannot get back any further on the Polleys than the name of my 2ggrandfather Hiram Polley married to Saloma Clark.
I'm curious as to whether or not the Pollay name is a transliteration of a French name, Paulet or Pollet or Poilly?
Sorry, if I brought this up to you before.
