Re: Finding Your Roots - John Legend ..... Solved

Thanks to an AfriGeneas reader the connection between my great-children, the nephews & niece of entertainer John Legend and Peyton Polley has been solved.

A great-great grandmother of my Stephens great-grandchildren, Esther Louise Rider, was the daughter of James A. Rider and Bethinia "Bessie" Underwood. I had Esther listed as, Esther Louise Hargo, the daughter of George Washington Hargo and Bethinia ...... George Washington Hargo was the step-father of Esther.

With this correction we find that James A. Rider was a son of George T. Rider and Cora Athefer Polley. Cora was the daughter of John Polley and A. Arter Slone (sp) and John Polley was a son of Peyton Polley.

This correction now confirms Peyton & Violet (Justice) Polley as a set of 6th great-grandparents for my Stephens great-grandchildren.

A BIG Thank You to AfriGeneas and one of the AfriGenas Angels.
