I would assume that as well, since the baby is only 10 months
old, of course he could have died during Polly's pregnancy. And
that could take it back into 1879. I don't know if there are any
Mortality lists for Ca in 1880 or not, there are other states that
have them I know. If it is important enough to someone they
might check the Mortality list out.

That's true. Although I generally think in terms of 1 yr anniversaries
as in it wouldn't be the first year until 1875. But either way, the
census doesn't confirm that they were in Ca that early, as only
little Modena "Denia" (sp) Dorcas was the only one shown to have
been bn in Ca at age 10 months, Samantha was bn 1877 Ar
(according to the census Bernie found)

The only way it works for Polly to be Jane' niece is that we have
the John's that was bn in 1820 as son's of the wrong brothers
(Nathan or Absolom) John with wife Rebecca Potts is said to have
been a son of Absolom. But it could be that we should have him
as the son of Nathan and John who married Mildred/Maldred
Livingston should be the son of Absolom, for Polly to be the niece
that is where the problem is. I think I saw Barbara Allen's name
on the credits of the article that said Polly was a niece, so maybe
someone who is aquainted with her might send her a email, Jean?
Do you think it would be ok to question her this soon? I wouldn't
want to add to her hurt.
I think we have the girls with their correct parents its their fathers
that I'm giving some thought to that may be confused at this point.

I should have thought about her. However, I don't study the Hively name
all that much. But I did know about Thomas' sister Jane.
