Looking for Mary Polly Hill
Mary Polly Hill McConnell Caplinger was one of my great-grandmothers. She was born in 1809 in South Carolina.She married John McConnell in 1825 in Cedar County, Missouri.I found her in the 1850 and 1870 federal census. Her second husband was Samuel Caplinger in Cedar County, Missouri.When he died she moved to Oregon and the 1870 census showed her living in Lane County, Oregon with her daughter Susan McConnell and her son-in-law, James Prior Cheshire. Her other children were Nancy Amanda, Sampson,John,Martha Patricia,Evalina, and Caroline.
John Prior Cheshire and Susan McConnell Came to Oregon via the Oregon Trail and arrived in Oregon City 1n 1852. At some point Mary Polly Hill moved to Oregon. I would love to know more about her. She had a lot of spunk as did her daughter Susan. Thank you so much for any more information on Mary Polly Hill. Crete Cheshire
