Found the entry for Polly Raiborne. She was my great great grandmother. She was the second wife of Jacob Whitworth, and they lived in Amelia Co. Va. They had 3 children that I know of--Eliza or Elizabeth P., mar. Turner C. Holt, Thomas Edward, and William Jefferson, my great grandfather. I have the date of Polly and Jacob's marriage as 3/18/1816. I am most interested in finding out something about Jacob, because the line is a little fuzzy before him. If anyone knows where the Raibornes lived that would be of interest. She was the daughter of Thomas and Mildred Thompson Raiborne, at least the entry I just found said so. But with no location given I could be on the wrong track.

If your Mary (Polly) Raiborne is the daughter of Thomas S. Raiborne and Mildred Thompson, then she would have been a sister of my gggrandmother Patience Raibourne. If this is correct, the information I have for the birthdate of Mary (Polly) is 3 Jun 1817 and a death date of 5 May 1878. This information does not fit your marriage date of Polly and Jacob in 1816. Could your Polly be the daughter of my Mary (Polly)? Thomas was born 4 Sep 1786 in North Carolina; Mildred was born in 1787 in Maryland. Patience was born in 1809 in Tennesse and died in 1858 in Fayette Co., Illinois. An older brother of Patience, Mitchell T. Raibourne was born 4 Jul 1808 in North Carolina Hope this helps in your search. Please contact me if you need additional info or have questions.

I think we're talking about two different families. I wondered about those being her parents, and the dates confirm they weren't. I also doubt if my Polly had anything to do with anyone out of the state of Virginia. My whole family seemed to have been pretty embedded in the central Virginia area.
