Mary Ann "Polly" Russell married Thomas Laughlin Duncan (1794-1846) When he died, she married Thomas Starr (1799-1852) Mary & Thomas Starr were both buried in the Duncan cemetery just inside the front entrance. Their graves were marked by two elm trees. In the early 2000s, the trees were ripped out of the ground by a tornado. There are plans to put markers in their place.
She had no children with Starr tho he had a couple from a previous marriage.
I have not located the burial place of Thomas L. Duncan.
Mary's father was Thomas J. Russell, possibly born abt 1775 in Virginia or South Carolina and possibly died in Mississippi. I have not located his burial nor his wife's name.
