ID # 1933, (1852-)
|Birth||Polly Risely was born in March 1852 at New York State.|
|Marriage||She married David Laird, son of Hugh Laird and Nancy Vrooman, on 20 December 1871 at Buchanan, Iowa.|
We have only a very brief transcription, provided by FamilySearch, of the marriage record for David and Polly. His age is given as 23 and Polly's as 20. The marriage date is shown as 26 December, 1871, and as having taken place in Buchanan, Iowa. For the present, we have no further information.
|Note||Transcriptions for at least some of the children of David and Polly have been found. Here, we find Polly's maiden name of Risely. This led to the transcription we have of the marriage record of David and Polly. Polly was born in New York State in approximately 1852, according to census information. The Risely family was in Iowa by the time of the 1860 census. The 1860 and 1870 censuses show that Polly's parents were Albert and Margaret.|
