  • Other Names*: Mary Frances Cleveland, Mary Cleveland, Polly Cleveland, Mary Frances Cleveland Rusk, Mary Frances Rusk, Mary Rusk, Polly Rusk.
  • Obituary*: "Death of Mrs. Rusk.—The Nacogdoches Chronicle announces the death of this estimable lady:
       "'She died at her residence near Nacogdoches, at two o’clock, on the morning of the 26th instant, aged forty-six years, eight months and twelve days.
       "'Mrs. Rusk was born in 1809, in Habersham county, Georgia, and was a daughter of the Hon. Benjamin Cleveland, of that State. In 1827 she married our present distinguished Senator, Thomas J. Rusk, then a young and rising lawyer of that State.'
       "The friends of Gen. Rusk sympathize with him in his bereavement. If anything could blunt the sorrow which he feels, it would be the very general regret felt at his loss, and the very great desire to alleviate, if possible, the poignancy of his grief."19
  • Note*: She died of tuberculosis.11
