Mary Anderson was born in 1822 in Howard County, Missouri.

Does anyone have a 'probably' who her parents were?

She went to Lincoln County, TN in 'infancy' and married Daniel Pearson Holman there in 1842.  I believe her mother was Mary Anderson.

Big help, huh?

Here's a possible parent, the right first and last name, the right age, and burial in MO. It's a guess.

Sometimes a person named Mary is called Polly, so here's another guess: Based on the exact birth year and exact death years being identical, it's probably the same person, except her husband is on the tombstone.

Thank you for your response.  My Mary Anderson Holman's mother was Mary Anderson, as well, and she died in Tennessee.
You may want to try familysearch.org . It's free and you just enter the info you have and estimate specific years that you don't have. It could be worth a try.

FamilySearch pops up a link to a Pedigree Resource File. It shows her father as being William Anderson, born about 1780 in Madison or Lincoln County, TN. He died about 1829 in Howard County, MO. The record shows hit wife only as "Mary", born about 1790 in Tennessee.

William's father (Mary's grandfather) is shown as William Anderson, with no additional data.

The main sources for the data in this file are the 1810 US Census in Madison, KY

It appears that most of the data in the record
