Bef. 1793 in Nottoway County, Virginia. She was born Abt. 1768 in Black's and White's, Amelia County, Virginia, and died Bef. 1815 in Nottoway County, Virginia.

Notes for Polly Bell Anderson:
       Polly B. Anderson was the daughter of John Anderson and Mary Bell. Polly married Freeman Eckles the son of James Eckles before 1793. This name is given in the 1794 will of John May as Freeman Nichols. Additionally, Grant Anderson (1909) gives it as Nichols. But Martha gives it as Eckles in her 1800 will. I have found no Nichols in Nottoway County. Freeman Eckles appears as witnesses to several family documents. Rebecca's 1815 chancery suit says that she is dead and that she had children by Freeman Eckles who is now their guardian. Freeman probably remarried before the 1820 census. I have not been able to identify all of her children yet (2000).
