I have James Stanford b. 1781 in NC. Polly may have been married to brothers. I found a marriage record of Polly McGee (McGhee) married to John Stanford in Georgia in 1810, which is the brother of James. Polly was living in Virginia as a widow in 1840, Hiram (her grandson) was living with her. In
the census records it shows her to be born about 1785 and that she was born in N.C. It looks like the Stanford's came from Virginia, went to NC/SC, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma etc.
