My history: Mary Ann "Polly" Baggett Lantrip Headstone

Mary Ann "Polly" Baggett Lantrip's Headstone at Liberty Community Cemetery, Liberty Community, Milam County, Texas.

My great-great grandmother, Mary Ann “Polly” Baggett, was born on May 2, 1822 in Florida, possibly to Edmund Baggett. She married George Wesley Lantrip circa 1841, probably in Mississippi. Mary Ann Lantrip indicated in the 1900 Milam County census that she had borne 12 children, though only two were still living at that time.

Information is known about only five of her children: Margaret M., who married George Washington Miller; Adeline, who married Elijah Hardcastle; Lucy; John Wesley, who married Martha Bowlin Euzene Alley; and Thomas Wesley, Sr. who was married first to Anna E. York and second to Mattie Irola Henderson.

Another possible daughter was a Jennie or Jenntie Lantrip, who married John Hamill in Milam County, Texas. There was also a Susan Lantrip who married William Hobbs. This Susan was listed as living with George and Mary Ann Lantrip in the 1870 and 1880 censuses, but is believed to be the daughter of George’s twin brother, James.

Mary Ann Lantrip and her family were Methodists. Her husband George was ordained as a deacon in that denomination.

Mary Ann Baggett Lantrip died Nov. 20, 1903 in Milam County, and is buried there with her husband, Rev. George Wesley Lantrip, in the Liberty Community Cemetery.
