Halifax Co. Deed Book 24, page 185
Nov. 28, 1817
Division of lands owned by Benjamin Foreman, deceased, and now occupied by his widow Amelia Foreman, who has a life estate in said lands. Land divided into two shares of 219 ¬Ω acres each, one share to James C. Harrison in right of his wife, the other share to Whitmel Cotton in right of his wife Polly.

Halifax County Deed Book 24, page 152
Dec. 6, 1817
James C. Harrison and wife Dolly to Thomas Burgess, all of Halifax Town.
For $20,000, 372 acres that had been devised to said Dolly by her late father Benjamin Foreman on the Roanoke River, also 219 ¬Ω acres that descended to the said Dolly from her sister Amelia Foreman.

(there are more deeds that prove this marriage, but these are the earliest)

I am speculating that Polly Foreman Cotton was not named in her father’s will because she was already married. However, other records prove the three children of Benjamin Foreman – Mary, Dolly, and Amelia. The latter died unmarried and without issue.

There is a will for James C. Harrison in Northampton – I have these on microfilm and will try to read it tonight.

Residue of money after payment of debts is for my said sister and half-brother.

(This will give you a little more on these Foreman sisters. From the wording of Mary Foreman Cotton’s will, it appears her half-brother Moses Horn died without issue.)
