Re: Thomas Polston m.1798 Albemarle Co. VA

I am a Polston researcher beginning with the Polstons of north-east Arkansas in the 1830 Census.

There are some who suspect that the Susannah Polston (widowed?) of that census may be Susannah (Dollins) Polston.

Susannah's Census info is:
U.S. Census of 1830
Arkansas Territory, Lawrence County
Polston, Susannah (30-40 yrs.) with;
1 male (under 5 yrs.)
2 females (under 10 yrs.)
1 male (10-15 yrs.)
1 male (15-20 yrs.)
1 male (20-30 yrs.)

It is my belief that the male (10-15 yrs.) is my John P. Polston. He is, in a later census, shown to have been born in Tennessee. Also, the oldest male (20-30 yrs.) falls within the possibilities of of a marriage starting in 1798.

Have you ,in your research, ever found any indication that Thomas and Susannah ever emigrated towards Tennessee?
