Tombstone Tuesday ~ Mary Polly Watson Gandy
Mary Polly Watson was born 24 Dec 1787 in Maryland. She married Levi Preston Gandy 20 Jul 1805 in Monongalia County, Virginia. Mary died 23 Dec 1847 in Scotch Hill, Newburg, Preston County, Virginia. She is buried in Hunt Cemetery which is on Scotch Hill in Newburg, Preston County, West Virginia.
I really don't know much more about Mary. I know that she and Levi had atleast one child, Matilda, who was born in 1812. She is on the to research more list!
The funny thing is, I have been to this cemetery a few times, as my Great Grandmother is buried here and Andrew Nose, one of my family's Civil War veterans. It wasn't until last year I knew, Mrs. Mary Gandy was my relative too!
