Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1793
Frederick County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jun. 3, 1883
Harrison County
Indiana, USA

Polly is my 3rd paternal Gr-Grandmother through her daughter Rachel (Richard) Callahan (1818-1863).

One of only two children known to have been born to Lieutenant Peter and Mary Ann (Kline) Gilham of Frederick Co VA, Polly married:

1) Benjamin Richard on 28 Aug 1811 in Frederick Co VA; he died in 1826. Benjamin is my 3rd Gr-Grandfather; they had at least eight children, three sons and five daughters.
2) William Herndon on 7 Jun 1835 in Harrison Co IN. They had one daughter, Cynthia Ann Herndon (1838-1887).

Polly and William lived in Quincy, Adams Co IL. He may be buried there, but after his death Polly may have moved back to Mauckport to live with one of her older children. Still researching for their burial locations.
