Tennessee, USA

Mary "Polly", POWELL WILHOITE was born 1786, North Carolina and died Nov 1863, Bedford County, Tennessee. She married 2 Dec. 1803 to Jacob WILHOITE, Jr. (II) born 1781, died 1833, Bedford County, Tennessee. She is thought to be interred in the backyard of her son Jacob (III)'s home. Fieldstones were found there verifying this. One of them in front of the barn is thought to be the gravestone for Jacob WILHOITE JR.

A newspaper article stated that when Mary "Polly" Wilhoite died, she was buried in the family cemetery. It is thought that Jacob (II) b. 1781 and son Wiley died of Cholera in 1833 and were thus buried on the property. Later Mary joined them.
