John Roll and Mary ("Aunt Polly") Westfall Roll-Montgomery Co., IN

Can anyone help me with information regarding John Roll and Mary "Aunt Polly" Westfall Roll, who were married in Greenwille, Ohio, in 1824 and moved to Montgomery County, IN. He was born in apx. 1802 and died in 1836 in Indiana, and is buried at the Old Turkey Run Cemetery, just south of Wingate, Montgomery Co., IN. He is buried near my GGGGrandfather, Job Westfall, and my GGGranduncle, George Westfall. My GGGrandmother, Elizabeth Grenard Westfall (wife of Enos T. Westfall) is also buried there.

Mary "Aunt Polly" Westfall was born in Ohio in 1800 in the Darke County area of Ohio and she died in 1903 at the age of 103. I have been told that her parents were early pioneers in that area and that she was the first white baby born in that area and that her portrait hangs over a doorway in one of the historical buildings in Darke County. I would like to know who their John and Mary's) parents and siblings were and their applicable dates and places. If anyone can tell me where (what building) her portrait hangs, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for any information that you might have and can share with me.
