Mary "Polly" JONES COY
In 1850 she was 65 years old and living with the family of daughter Nancy Ann and John Snyder in Evansport, Defiance Co, OH. Also living there was step-son Aquila Coonrod, 17.
Connie says " She was remembered by her grandchildren as "a fine shot" which enabled her to protect her crops, and "a Christian, beloved by all who knew her".
Her marker reads "Mary wife of J. Coy and W. Coonrod Died December 16, 1870 Aged 83 Years Our Mother," according to Connie Rice.
