Looking for the parents of Mary Coleman who married Benjamin Whitehead Coleman in 1794. According to the Mecklenburg County marriage records, Thomas Pettus gave permission for Mary to marry Ben as her "guardian". Pen's parents were James Coleman and Sarah Whitehead, both of whom were deceased at the time of the marriage. According to the orphan's court records, Ben and his 3 sisters were in the care of their grandfather, Cluverius Coleman.
Ben and Mary aka Polly were my 3rd great grandparents and I have never been able to find out who Mary's parents were nor her relationship to this Thomas Pettus. Does anyone know if Thomas Pettus had a daughter who married a Coleman and there fore was Mary's grandfather?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
