Yes, I know Amanda Pollitt was married to John Samuel Thurman. He was my great grandfather, William Perry Thurman, 1/2 brother. What I am trying to find out, who is John Samuel's Grandfather, I know his father was Thomas Jackson Thurman, but who was his parents? You can e-mail me directly if you'd like at OutSpokN2@yahoo.com.

I see the listing for John Samuel Thurman and Amanda Pollitts daughter listed as Lucinda Katherine Thurman Pollitt according to Vanceburg Obituary from notes you posted. Wondering why this daughter has Pollitt listed as her last name? Did she marry a cousin or is this just for reference being her mother was a pollitt? Also do you have any info on a Martha E. Pollitt in your tree notes? Looking for info on her. Married to George William Thurman. hailewest@aol.com
