Mary "Polly" Ambrose Rader
Birth: 1801
Burning Springs
Clay County
Kentucky, USA
Death: 1880
Kentucky, USA

Mary died after 1880. She is found in the 1880 census as being 100 years old; but that is not true. Her birth year is shown to be anywhere from 1780, and 1795-1806. I believe her birth year of 1800 may be closer to the truth, but is definitely not 1780.

I'm not sure that there is a stone for Mary in this graveyard. There are several 'field stones' that have no names, or are hard to read so one of these may be her grave marker.

If George is buried here, then I think we can safely say she is buried here too.

If anyone objects to my adding her name to this cemetery, please get in touch with me and we can discuss it. I am open to discussion.


On 09-14-2013, we set a new stone for Mary in the (old) Rader Cemetery. A decision had to be made as to where the new stone should be placed. We knew where George's stone was located, but not Mary's location. Logically, Mike Mays and I decided to place the stone to the right of George. The wife is (almost) always (so I was told) placed to the husband's right on double gravestones, so we used this as our decision maker in placing the stone for Mary.

We don't know that Mary is to his right or not. The stone to George's left is actually much closer to his grave. But we went with the one to his right. If this is not right--and if someone knows for sure--please tell us. If no one really knows for sure, then it isn't going to matter one way or the other.
