Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)
A marker for Polley Vorhies can be found in Coens Methodist Church Cemetery, in Noble County, Ohio, and identifies Polley [Vorhies] as the wife of Aaron Vorhies. She died 4 Dec 1850, aged 46 years, 28 days, giving a birth date of 6 Nov 1794. It also notes on the gravestone that Polley was the wife of Aaron Vorhies. I'm reasonably sure that Polley and Mary are the same person, but I don't have any corroborating evidence. [marker-polley-vorhies-1840]
