    Notes:

    Sometimes called "Mahala", the name on her tombstone. Nicknamed "Holly," according to some. She is called Mahala in her father's 1772 will, which also names her future husband James Sumner (called his "trusty friend") an executor.

    Assertions that she was of Cherokee heritage are, to the best of our knowledge, baseless.
