-Robert Lee Snow graciously offered the following information:
William George Pollard, M. D., 4/7/1818. Parents Robert Pollard and Evelyn Byrd Chamberlayne. Living in King William in 1850 with wife Sarah(1823) and children Evelyn Chamberlayne Pollard 12/18/1846 and George W. Pollard 1847. Daughter Maria born on 8/19/1856. Family in King William County again in 1860. William enlisted 7/26/61 at West Point, and was elected Captain. Conflicting data shows resignation on 9/5/62 due to age, but also KIA 9/17/62 at Sharpsburg. Apparently resignation was approved, but by that time he was already KIA. Daughter Evelyn married Robert G. Hill on 10/26/1866 in King William, and in 1880 in King William, no children were evident. Children George and Maria were with widow Sarah Pollard in 1880 in King William; those two children were single. Son George was now an M.D. as father William was. Daughter Evelyn remarried to James William Tayloe(possibly Taylor) on 7/18/1889. She died on 9/15/1911 and is buried at Saint David’s Episcopal Church in Aylett, King William County.
