    Notes 
    • Polly(Mary Stanley) graduated from Hornell High School in 1920. She lived with her aunt, Mrs. John Stanley, after the death of her mother in 1905. She was said have had a very tough time as a little girl, living with her mothers family, having to hear about how "improper those Allen's are." Audrey Allen, said that Grandma was not even aloud to play with the neighbor kids because she was an Allen. Grandma never mentioned anything about her father having been Divorced before marring her mother. This was look down upon at the time and may have been why her parents went to Steuben County to get married by a Justice of the Peace. Grandma always spoke highly of her father and of his third wife Edith Jotry. She so wanted to go and live with them, but from what I understand, they were always traveling and it would be no place for a little girl, so she was told.
