The name changes from Mary to Polly and Polly to Mary from 1840 trhough 1880 census in Knox County, Ky. Mary Polly was never married but had at least three children, Emily, Francis Marion (a son who was handicapped in some way) and Robert G. Wyatt who was killed in the Civil War fighting for Union Army. Emily married William Mcintosh son of Jesse and Jane Mcintosh in the 1840's and she and her family by the 1860's were in Buchannan Co., Missouri and Doniphan Co. Kansas areas. On the 1850 census there are two women named Francis (Fanny) and Susan Wyatt near the same age as Mary Polly and these are possible sisters. Union Pension records of Robert G. Wyatt filed by his mother supports her case that she was never married and had three children, listed by name.
In land records in 1858 in Knox County, Mary Polly sold land she inherited from her father Thomas to Joseph Smith. The act was witnessed by both Francis and Susan Wyatt and indicates they also inherited from the Thomas Wyatt estate.
Later court records from Mercer County Missouri supports the land owned by Mary Polly as after her death and her son Marion Francis land was inherited by the widow of Aaron mcintosh and her children of Mercer Co., Missouri. Those records also mention that Emily had married William Mcintosh. Do not know the relationship of Aaron mcintosh to the Wyatts and Mcintosh of Knox County.
The only Thomas Wyatt that fits with this Mary Polly is Thomas son of Samuel and Rebecca that died in 1832. His surviving widow Mary paid taxes on that land after his death .Apparently at either her death or for some reason Mary Polly and others got some of the Thomas Wyatt estate.
The 1850 census shows Mary Polly, Francis (Fanny) and Susan together but there are more kids with them than two Mary claims Francis Marion and Robert G. Don't know how that fits...but thought all this might help some of the Wyatt Researchers.
