  2. That was important to understand, thank you for clarification.

    Will was only married to Polly for a month before he married Emma - do you know what happened?

    Are Polly and Derlin related?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Polly and Derlin (Actually Levi Derlin) were siblings. Polly died shortly after Will and my grandmother married. While Emma helped raise Raymond, he was not her son, she was already 46 years old when her and Will married.

    1. Thank you for more clarification - I gather that Raymond was with the first wife, Anna. I have a Raymond listed there (I had wondered why they would have two Raymonds). I appreciate your comments.
