I am looking for more information on my (I think) third great-grandmother, Mary "Polly" Gillespie.

Here's what I know for sure:
Married John H Jones, 1822. (South Carolina Marriages, 1641-1965, US find a grave index)
Born: 28 Aug 1803. (Find a Grave index, US & web)
Died: 5 Oct 1850. (Find a Grave index. US & web)
Buried: Old Macedonia Cemetery, GA. (Find a Grave index. US & web)
Children: Asbury Coke Jones (US find a grave index)

Ancestry family trees filled in some other details, including giving her birth place as Abbeville, Abbeville Co South Carolina.

There is a strong possibility that she is my great-great grandfather's (Zachary/Zachariah Taylor Jones) mother. However he was born in 1849, when Polly would have been 49.

Ancestry keeps trying to suggest that her father was Thomas Gillespie, also of Abbeville, and/or that her mother was Thomas' wife, Anna McLin. There are no records supporting Thomas as her father, and scant records suggesting Anna is her mother (I can't find those records again so I'm not sure what they were).

Polly does not show up in any census. I've checked 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840. She died in 1850 -- so the census showing John H and many of their children does not show her. After she died the family started living with John's mother Sarah.

Any further documented info on Mary Polly Gillespie would be much appreciated.
