Mary "Polly" married Wm. Willett in 1899 and they are found in the 1800 Census of Chatham Co.,NC.along with their infant daughter Hannah. Later court records of Williamson Co.,TN name Mary's father as Absalom Tatom of Hillsborough in Orange Co.,NC. Polly and Wm moved soon after the 1800 census to Williamson Co. where they came into possession of 500 acres of land left to their children by Tatom.
Tatom was unmarried at the time of his death in 1802.Can anyone help with the name of Mary "Polly"'s mother or other information about her?
Absalom Tatom is not listed in the Orange Co.,NC Census of 1790. I've seen reference to his spending time in TN. Does anyone know is whereabouts for that census year?
