      Halifax County, North Carolina. He died in White Plains in 1852. His wife,
      Mary "Polly" Johnson, was born in 1783, in Wilkes County, Georgia, and
      died in White Plains, Georgia. (The story is told that she rode side-saddle under a tree hanging with scuppernongs. She stood up on her saddle and picked the fruit, taking it home in her frock to make jelly.)" [12, 13]
