bullet  Marriage Notes:

Per Burns:

Franklin, Elisha to Coys, Polly; 7/7/1804; Bondsman, Hoggens (spelled Haggens in Bride Index), Richard.

Per transcribed Register:

Franklin, Elisha to Coyl, Polly; bond dated 7 Jul 1804; surety, Richard Kizzias; note stating surety is girl's step-father.


With the problem the transcribers had with these names, I was very fortunate that Pat Franks, a fellow Hamilton and Branscomb researcher, happens to be a Kiggins researcher as well. Per her records, Polly Coe's parents were Joshua Coe and Rachel Paul. After Joshua's death, Rachel Coe married Richard Kiggins. More connections between Elisha and the Kiggins familiy appear in Events. 1 2 6
