The "will" will prove whether she is the daughter or not unless she was provided for before her father's death, and not mentioned. The other Susan Polk was Susanna (not Susan) who married Benjamin Alexander. She was the daughter of William Polk II, and Margaret Taylor Polk, who died in North Carolina. William Polk II was the son of Robert Bruce Polk, Sr., and the brother of Robert, Jr.
