COMMENTS:

1. It is not certain that Mary ("Polly") Upshaw is daughter of Parson Upshaw; it is only circumstantial at this point, as Parson was the only Upshaw of the correct age to be her father, who was in the immediate area of Blount County, although we have never found Parson actually in Blount County, Tennessee about 1820. We only know that he was in Roane Co, TN, shortly before 1811. Additional research is underway either to locate some mention of Parson in Blount Co. in 1819-1821, or to find obituary for Mary (Upshaw) Starr which might give more information.
