Father of Joseph Henry Polley.
Jonathan Polley was born in Windham, Connecticut on October 26, 1760 to Jonathan Polley, Sr. and Prudence DeWolf. He fought in the Revolutionary War. Jonathan made his home in Whitehall, New York with his wife Rachel Hubbard (married in about 1791). Together, they had nine children (listed below). Rachel passed away in May of 1821, and Jonathan married Mehitable Metcalf (daughter of Asa Metcalf) sometime later. Jonathan died on May 31, 1840 in Fort Ann, New York. He is buried in the Kinner family cemetery (also known as Wood Creek Cemetery) in the Town of Whitehall, New York.
(Location Note: The line between Fort Ann and Whitehall, New York runs through this area and the town boundaries may have shifted between the Polley children’s births and Jonathan Polley’s death, creating the different cited locations for the same Polley family home.)
