Did you find Polly's parents OK?

I have another mystery for this family: John Eaton may have had a first wife named Lanah Ann, who may have died 1807 and who may have had a daughter Sally, who married James Richardson. But the Census says Sally was b. in 1809. So who was her mother? Are the dates off, and her mother was Lanah Ann? What was Lanah Ann's maiden name?
1860 Census for Parish, Oswego Co, NY. James
Richardson, b. 1802 and his wife Sally, b. 1809. She was Sally Eaton,
right?
Their children in 1860 were Ann, Harriet, Sarah and Cornelia. For
Cornelia's age it seems to say "5?."
Next door were Bradley Richardson, 23, and his wife, Sarah, 20. Next
to them were John Richardson, 28, and his wife, Sarah A. Their
children were Martha, 3, and Helen, 8 months. On the previous page,
but not right next door to James, was Hiram Richardson, 60, his wife,
Abigail, 58, Seth, 24, Silas, 20, Hiram, 13, Lorna? Lama? A., 11.

1870 Census for same James and Sally Richardson:
Albion, Oswego, NY
James Richardson 68
Sally Richardson 61
Cornelia Richardson 15
Estella Price 4
