Mary ann "Polly" patrick
Hi Debra,
I have written to Sherry [Plowman]Tackett concerning my doubts about the existence of Mary Ann "Polly" Patrick and she would not reply. I think someone got confused with Polly Patrick, the wife of Moses Howard and people jumped on the bandwagon. In any Howard family history, there is not one mention of any Mary Ann "Polly" Patrick being married to Thomas Howard 1770-1853. If Thomas was ever married to her, Mary's name would certainly be in the history. Thomas was never married to Mary. A marriage to Mary only works If Frances died in 1805 as several trees incorrectly state. However, Frances did not die in 1805. In 1850, Frances was still living with her husband, Thomas. [1850 United States Federal Census] She died sometime after 1871.

Distant Family connections
Hi Debra,
I can't remember if I have messaged you before. We both have connections to Peter and Elizabeth (Vogel) Oberling. Their son Henry was related to my grand aunt. On my tree you are the 1st cousin 2x removed of the husband of my grand aunt. ~Kim

RE: Mary Ann
Hi Debra, I don't think Thomas has a middle initial. Thomas C. Howard is his grandson. According to her pension application Francis was born in 1779. Their children are; Moses Howard, William Howard, Matilda (Howard) Montgomery, Letty (Howard) Montgomery and Cynthia (Howard) Phipps. After Francis died in 1805 not sure of the cause of her death.

RE: Mary Ann
Hi Debra, I don't know for sure about her birth and death dates. This is all i have on her..Thomas married second wife Mary Ann "Polly" Patrick born after 1770 and she died sometime after 1824. If I find out for sure of her birth and death dates I'll let you know. Thanks..Sherry

The Cole Family Cemetery is located just off of Lynwinn Rd in Coal City, West Virginia on Serenity Rd. Maybe at one point this area was part of Winding Gulf. I'm not sure. I will try to investigate.
