The 1880 mortality schedule for Labette County, Kansas, describes Polly ("Polly H. Jones") as a widow who passed away from pneumonia at the age of 80. The attending physician was E. B. Baldwin. Her parents' places of birth are not listed, and next to the cause of death is a crossed-out phrase that seems to begin with the word "quick".
