David Arrant was easy identifed. Mary was listed as Polly Anders. There are no Anders listed in Lincoln County, Georgia by 1830. There is one Anderson family listed, that of Robert Anderson. It is believed he is Mary's father. Cornelius Arrant, David's brother, lives in the same area as Robert Anderson's family. This is probable how David meet Polly (Mary).
