a. Note:   Mary Helen Haines notes:
 See notes for second husband Seth Moore as well.
  Most researchers believe that Mary's first husband was Alexander Ward, born in 1765 and died in 1793 in Jefferson Co. TN. He writes a will in 1793, mentioning his wife Mary, son David, daughters Rachel and Phoebe. Witness to the will was John McFarland.This will was found in the Jefferson County, TN will books. " These people and their descendents were later inhabitants of Cocke County." These were submitted by: Marcia Douglas

  MHH notes: Other researchers have this same Mary McFarland married to Samuel Montgomery and dying in 1796 in Owensville, Gibson Co., Indiana. This is the incorrect Mary. Also, the Mary listed below who married Daniel Robinette is from the Duncan line.
  The following are notes from the McFarland genealogy website of Gary Morris: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Hollow/8143/genealogy/mcfarland/rbtlanc.txt --
  ***** 42 ***** Mary (Polly) McFARLAND, daughter of John McFARLAND and Mary
 KINDER, was born 28 Feb 1764 in Bedford County, Virginia, died in Owensville,
 Gibson County, Indiana. Married 1773 in Botetourt County, Virginia to Samuel
 MONTGOMERY son of Hugh MONTGOMERY and C, born 1743/1752 in Augusta County,
 Virginia, died 1815/1845 in Gibson County, Indiana, buried in Benson Cemetery,
 Gibson County, Indiana.
  ----- NOTES FOR Mary (Polly) McFARLAND:
 TWIN.
 CONFLICT: other records says born about 1745 VA. If born 1763 then she was
 11 years old when married.
 CONFLICT: Other records place Mary as wife of (1) Alexander WARD, and (2)
 Daniel Robinett. Note that marriage to Alexander Ward is feasable (brother,
 Benjamin had as sponsor at his wedding an Alexander Ward, probably same person),
 but marriage to Daniel Robinett is in question, since Mary, daughter of William
 (son of Duncan of Bath Co, VA) is place as marrying Daniel or Michael Robinett.
 TO-DO: Recheck family to resolve conflict of husband.
 MIGRATION: Moved 1778/1785 to Garrard County, Kentucky.
  ----- NOTES FOR Samuel MONTGOMERY:
 PARENTS: Hugh MONTGOMERY and Caroline ANDERSON.
 PLACE: Married 1773 in Botetourt, that part now in Wythe County, VA.
 RESIDENCE: 1775, 1779 in Botetourt County, VA
 MILITARY: Revolutionary War.
 RESIDENCE: Lived 1777 Roanoke Springs, Roanoke County, VA. Moved 1780/1785
 to Garrard Co, Kentucky.
 RESIDENCE: 1784-1795 Lincoln county, Kentucky and by 1815 Gibson County,
 Indiana.
 SOURCE: World Family tree Disk #5, Disk #9. Father Hugh born Campbell Co, VA,
 married Lancaster Co, Pa and died near Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky.
  ***** 43 ***** Rachel McFARLAND, daughter of John McFARLAND and Mary KINDER, was
 born 10 Mar 1766 in Bedford County, Virginia. Married about 1796 in Tennessee
 to John WARD born about 1760 in Virginia(?).
