Research Notes for Child (??) Mary GEAN

1850 Census:
age 43, born in NC, Polly Cheek
the next dwelling (no. 101) is that of Harlan Beaver, her 2nd husb.
sheet 358A, dwelling no. 100, family no. 101
Upper Regiment, Chatham Co., NC

1860 Census:
age 55, born in NC, Mary Beavers
sheet 79, page 52, dwelling no. 436, family no. 422, line 1
Hadleys Mills P.O., Eastern District, Chatham Co., NC

Her proximity and dealings with Byrd Gean & Mourning Cates (and their children) makes it seem more likely that she was their daughter. It does not seem likely that Harlan's 1st wife and 2nd wife were sisters...they were more likely cousins, but not first cousins.
