Message rc'd:
"Thanks so much for all the wonderful information! I am curious though; Polly is mentioned in the Will Abstract in 1813 as the widow, yet everyone seems to have
her as having died in 1800 and having Lott remarried to a Caroline. If he was married twice, then surely Polly was the 2nd wife? Maybe he wasn't married
twice? Any thoughts on this?"

Note: This is a puzzle that needs further research. Suggest we start with a copy of David Cassel's book and go from there. It is possible that Lott just hadn't changed his Will before he died.
