Ollars - Jesse & Polly Yes I'm still here - just saw your message. I believe I know who put up the marker for Jesse & Polly. He passed away a couple of years ago. At any rate, I believe he was going by oral family history that was mistaken. Polly outlived Jesse and is found in these probabe records:
April Term 1860 (Probate Court) "This day came Mary Oller who has been appointed by the clerk of this court Administratrix of said estate in vacation and presented the bond of said Administration which on consideration by the court is approved. It is therefore ordered by the court....etc. And on motion of said administratrix she has leave until the next regular term of this court to file her inventory and appraisement herein"
October 1860 probate court " Estate of Jesse Oller deceased. This day came the widow of said deceased Mary Oller .....etc." She was given another extension.
In January of 1861 there is another record and the court allowed Mary the entire estate of Jesse Oller.
She should be in the 1860 census but I haven't found her.
These are the dates I have for Jesse's date of death "Aft April 2, 1860 and for Polly's date of death "Aft March 28, 1864."
Jesse and Polly received a land patent 02 April 1860 for 40 and 15/100's of an acres from the government.For some reason this was not recorded until 1900.
On 28 March 1864 Mary Oller sold this exact same piece of property. This means she lived until 28 March 1864.
RE: OLLAR Hey ! Are you still "out there"? Its been a long long time ! The OLLARS to which I refer is JESSIE and POLLY buried in Montgomery CO AR. Still have no idea WHY they both have the same death dates on the stone.
Hope this finds you well whereever you are ! STill Searchin', Tricia
OLLAR Hi: We went to visit this grave site where my maternal g.g. grandparents are buried. We have often wondered how or why they had the same death date. WE thought maybe they had been ill with one of the epedemics going around at that time. Thank you for your notes and thoughts on the topic. Patsy
