>From which source are you getting this info? Book, vital records, etc. Also, can you give us a time or place for the event? There were times in the Virginia/West Virginia area where you couldn't take two steps without tripping over a Poling -- they were everywhere! lol. Yes, relatives often married each other- -- when you've packed up and settled in a wilderness place, there weren't too many families to choose from! But since the names here are Thomas, Mary, and John, which are way common, I'd look really carefully at sources (especially the source where John and Mary both list their father as Thomas). I know that might not have helped, but if you post a time period or place, or even where you got the info, there are people on this list who could really be of help to you. Good Luck!
