Source Dan Mohn: Edward Polley served, for 18 months as a private in the Virginia Line during the Revolutionary War. He, along with Joshua Mullins and William Buckner, enlisted in a company headed by Captain Burton, in a regiment led by Colonel Gibson.

They enlisted in September 1780, and were discharged February 28, 1781. Edward was transferred to a company led by Isaac Webb. He applied for a pension November 17, 1825. At the time he was living in Perry County, Kentucky. His pension, begun in February 1828, was $8.00 a month. When applying for the pension, he listed as property: 1 horse ($30.), 8 cattle/2 pigs ($40.), 8 sheep ($8.), 4 barrows/16 pigs ($14.), 50 acres of poor land, and owed to him the sum of $5.50. The total estimated value of his estate was $142.50.

After eight years in Virginia, Edward and Mary moved west to Carter County in Eastern Tennessee, where they lived for thirteen years. They then moved to Floyd County, Kentucky where they lived until Edward died in 1845. They were living in Perry County, which was formed from part of Floyd County, at the time of his application for a pension.

The part of Perry County where he lived became part of Letcher County when it was formed in 1842. Mary Mullins Polley applied for a widow's pension June 7, 1847 in Letcher County, Kentucky (Edward had died May 19, 1845). She was living then with Randolph Polley, her grandson, and my great-grandfather. In her application she stated that she was married by a Baptist minister named Bailey, but that no record was made of the marriage. In 1994 I went to Pittsylvania County looking for information on the family, but I found no record of their marriage (At that time I had not yet seen her pension application). Mary also said that they lived in Pittsylvania County, Virginia for eight years before moving west.
