    • 1) "She is buried beside John Adam in the Folk-Busby-Cannon graveyard near Pomaria, S.C." Source: "Desc of Jacob Folk" by Frank/Perry/Mike/James Folk.
      2) "Mary E. Folk, consort of John Folk 8/31/1797 to 11/30/1854".
      Source, "Desc of Jacob Folk" by Frank/Perry/Mike/James Folk, pg 3-3.
      3) "Mary Elizabeth Parker Folk 8/31/1797 to 11/30/1854 (2nd wife of John Adam Folk)"
      Source, "Desc of Jacob Folk" by Frank/Perry/Mike/James Folk, pg 3-4. Note - she is actually his 3rd wife. Later records indicate that John A Folk was married in Georgia prior to marrying what was later thought by most researchers to be his 1st & 2nd wives, so many references to which wife was which - are no longer accurate.

      4) "Mary E. Folk, consort of John Folk 8/31/1797 to 11/30/1854".
      Source, Folk-Busby-Cannon Cem, Pomaria, SC.
      5) It's interesting to see the "consort of John Folk" here, which brings to question whether they were ever formally married. Steve Mears, Family Tree Compiler.
