Mary "Polly" Bowden Olive
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 11, 1794
Granville County
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1877
Henry County
Tennessee, USA

Many researchers think that Townley is her middle name and some think Tynes. I have not been able to establish that she had a middle name. Some researcher believe her grandmother was a Tynes who married John Lawrence so that would explain the name Tynes and she did have a brother named Benjamin Tynes Bowden. The Townley names comes from an old myth that a Richard Townley of England had left a fortune to a daughter Mary who had migarated to America and married John Lawrence but this has been discounted by other researchers since he did not have a daughter Mary.
