UNFORTUNATELY NO. I WISH THAT I COULD SHOW SOME RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MARLBORO "POLSTONS" AND CHESTERFIELD "POLSONS" BUT I CAN'T. I ONLY KNOW THAT ON THE 1850 CHESTERFIELD CENSUS THAT JEREMIAH POLSON (WHOM I BELIEVE MOVED TO MARLBORO COUNTY BETWEEN 1850-60) AND IS THE LINE FOR THE POLSTONS, AND HENRY POLSON, WHO OWNED LAND NEAR JUNIPER CREEK ( CHESTERFIELD COUNTY ) IN 1796.

JEREMIAH HAD A SON NAMED HENRY (WHO HAD 3 WIVES - THUS ADDING TO MANY POLSTONS IN MARLBORO COUNTY) AND I'M GUESSING MAYBE HENRY AND JEREMIAH sr ( THE ABOVE MENTIONED JEREMIAH'S FATHER) WERE BROTHERS -- JUST A GUESS, THOUGH-- NO EVIDENCE.

SOME POLSTON DESCENDANTS HAVE DOCUMENTS SUPPPORTING THE IDEA THAT JEREMIAH sr's LINE CAME FRON NORTH CAROLINA. THIS COULD VERY WELL BE TRUE, I JUST HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RESEARCH IN NC LIKE I WANT TO.

I ALSO HAVE RECORD THAT A JEREMIAH POLSON WAS PRESENT IN GEORGIA AROUND 1766 WHERE HE PETITIONS THE AUTHORITIES FOR SOME LAND THAT HE CAN LIVE ON TEMPORARILY BECAUSE HE IS EXPECTING HIS "FAMILY FROM BERMUDA" TO ARRIVE AND JOIN HIM. I HAVE "SPECULATED" THAT THIS COULD BE THE POLSTON LINE THAT ENDS UP POPULATING MARLBORO BUT I HAVE NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS IS TRUE. THE ONLY IMAGINATION I HAVE IS THAT SOME OF THE POLSTONS AND POLSONS ARE DARK COMPLECTED AND THIS IS A WILD GUESS. ANYWAY, IT'S FUN TO GUESS.
