Mary Walker, called Polly, and a daughter of Edward and Mahala (Tussey) Walker, was born in 16 December 1824 probably at her parents' home on Mulberry Creek and died sometime after 1900 probably on Bear Creek in Claiborne County. She married sometime between 2 April 1849 and 1 April 1850 a Samuel Crawford, who was born about 1824 in Tennessee and died sometime between 1880 and 1900.

Although his parents are far from proven, one old family source suggests that Sam was Polly's cousin. Quite possibly, the Martha who married John Crawford in Sullivan County is Polly's aunt Martha, and Samuel may have been their son. At present, however, this connection rates only as a guess.

The couple had 6 known children, two of whom moved to Newton and Cass Counties in Missouri. The burial places for both Polly and Sam are unknown, but since three of their children are buried in Campbell Cemetery on Bear Creek near where Sam and Mary probably lived most of their married lives, the couple could easily be in two of the many graves there marked only with fieldstones.
