I was later able to get the site to download with IE vs the FF that I was using. Do not think that this is your Polly. I just took a quick peek and this was a woman was living in IT in 1896. She had many children there too. She was mentioned to have being living in Hamilton County, TN in the early 1800's before the Cherokee removal. She claimed to be either 1/2 or 1/4 Cherokee. Her claim was rejected as were all of the claims of her children. It seems odd that she would follow the Cherokee from eastern TN to IT if she wasn't somehow connected to them but I did not study her application.
