Fourth Generation


13. Mary "Polly" STAMPS1 was born on 24 April 1783.5 She died on 7 May 1850 at the age of 67 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.5

Mary was the daughter of William Stamps who died 1763 in Fauquier Co and his wife Ellinor Brent. William was the son of William Stamps who died before Apr 1746 and his wife Mary Byrd.

Timothy and Mary were 1st cousins once removed.

[The above is how this is given in the Stamps database. There is obviously a problem with the information as Mary's birth is given as 1783 and this fits well with her marriage date, etc. However, her supposed father had already been dead for 20 years by 1783 unless that information is wrong. She was also born 20 years after Catherine & James whose births were recorded by the Rev. Douglas in Goochland Co VA. There is possibly a missing generation.]

Mary "Polly" STAMPS and William CARTER were married.7 William CARTER died in 1805 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.5

Stamps researchers show this William as a son of Theodrick Carter III of Halifax Co. Theodrick did indeed have a son William who is named in his will in July of 1805 - 1805 is also they year they claim William Carter died in Pittsylvania Co. Given the numbers of Carters in the area I believe an error has been made. Mary Stamps' brother William Stamps is also said to have married Elizabeth Carter, daughter of Theodrick III but Theodrick Carter's will shows his daughter's name to have been Elizabeth Richardson.
