Mary "Polly" LeMasters Boggs
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 11, 1782
Kanawha County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 27, 1851
Braxton County
West Virginia, USA

Mary was a daughter of Benjamin LeMasters and Rebecca Ann Martin. She was one of Ten daughters. She married James Clendenin Boggs on June 11, 1799 in Bucks Garden, Kanawha County (West) Virginia. He was a son of Charles Francis Boggs and Mary 'Polly' Clendenin.

After James death, Mary was living with her Granddaughter, Mary Jane Boggs, in Braxton County in 1850.

The 1850 Census, District No. 4, County of Braxton, State of Virginia, enumerated on the 6th day of Sept. states Mary Boggs 70, VA. Mary Jane Boggs 17., VA.
Mary (LeMasters or LeMasters) Boggs, age 70 living with her grand daughter., Mary Jane (Bobbs) Beall, a daughter of Silas Innard, (a son of James C. & Mary (LeMasters) Boggs and wife #2, Rachael (James) Boggs), was a correct assumption. Mary Jane married Henderson H. Beall, about 1850.
Mary's age of 70 is probably not correct as I have her listed as being born 21 Sep 1782. She would have been closer to 69 years, depending on the month of the census taking.

Mary died at the Old Mill in Pigeon Run on Braxton County, West Virginia.

Our Boggs Cousins donated money to pay for a new headstone for her and James.

Thank You All who graciously gave for her new headstone!
