Jeremiah Elrod (1755-1841) and second wife Mary "Polly"

Hi all! My paternal grandmother was an Elrod and I have been trying to verify my line back to Johan Dietrich for a while now. I can prove my line back to my third great grandfather George Washington Elrod (c. 1803, Wayne Co., KY -1882, Talladega, AL), however I haven't seen anything to prove his parentage. Supposedly he is the son of Jeremiah Elrod who married first Anna Catherine Vogler. Jeremiah is supposed to have left his family with Anna in North Carolina and moved to Kentucky where he married a woman named Mary or "Polly" (maiden name unknown to me) and had at least one son, my ggg-grandfather George Washington Elrod.

I'm very interested in this story and whether it can be proven. If anyone knows anything about Jeremiah and Mary/Polly, or any additional children they may have had, please email me or reply here!
