My mother was a grandaughter of John William Lindley (1847-1927) of Red Bay Alabama son of Jacob and Cathrin Lindley. John died in MS.
My mother's family notes state that she learned John was married twice and that there was a daughter named Polly Ann who remained in Alabama when the family moved to MS. She did not know if there were other children of the first marriage. Our family has no other information on the first marriage or of Polly Ann.
There is a Polly Ann Lindley buried in Halltown Cemetery in AL. Her birthdate falls in line with when John would have been married the first time. A Polly Ann is mentioned in several family trees but the ancestry shown does not match our family. But residence info in Red Bay does. She is shown in a 1910 census living with her brother Joel V. Lindley in AL. A Joel V. Lindley is shown living with his grandparents Jacob and Cathrin in Alabama in 1880 census.
Does anyone have any information on John Whilliam Lindley, Polly Ann Lindley or Joel V. Lindley to help clear up this mystery? Could Joel V. also have been a child of John?
Any input would be appreciated.
