Only 35 at the time of her death, she had been married for 14 years and had given birth to 11 children.

Her husband, John J. (Jr.) Herriman was the s/o John and Rebecca Spurlock Herriman. Polly was the d/o Jeremiah (J.T.) Turner Reeves and his wife, Elizabeth Powell, who was the widow of Isham Handy who had drowned a very short time after their wedding.
