This is one of the few threads on Ancestry with any connection to the name Amyett. Not sure if you guys can help me out or not, but worth a shot.
Mary "Polly" Amyett is my 4th great grandmother (and as far back as I can find for her side of the family). My records have her being born in Jones County, NC and marrying a John Messer (later changed spelling to Mercer). I have her on 1850, 60 & 70 census records.
I found some other Amyetts living in nearby Trenton County, NC around the same time. I've seen a few people in this thread mention Amos & Vincent (I found them on an 1850 census).
Does anyone know if this Mary "Polly" Amyett is related to them? Any help is appreciated!
