This is what I know about Polly, daughter of James and Elizabeth Wharmby: our family says that Polly married a Frank Johnson and had three children, Lily, Polly, and Harold. They also say she later married a Peter Hoole. They do not say when she came over from England. When going back over the England census (1871,1881),there is no Polly shown with James and Elizabeth, but there is a Mary E. born 1866. I found a census showing a Mary E. married to a Peter Hoole in England and they had the following children, Mary E., Lillie, and Harold. It shows they immigrated to Fall River, Mass in 1898. I never found her married to Frank Johnson, but it could have been a very short marriage. I'm trying to verify if Polly and Mary E. are one and the one and the same. I think they are as I have been correct so far in my other guesses. As you say, many times, children were given namesakes. I have already seen that with James and Elizabeth's children. We know Jane Ann as Jenny. It is all based on what James called his sisters. Thanks for the help.
