Will signed:  4 Aug 1822, Christian Co., KY
Will proved:  3 Feb 1823, Christian Co., KY
Father:  David McCORD

Wife-1:  Ms. __?__
Marriage-2:  6 Feb 1812, Christian Co., KY

2.  (Daughter A) McCORD, b. 1804-10
3.  (Daughter B) McCORD, b. 1810

It's possible the 10-15 year-olds in the 1810 Census were not Samuel McCORD's children and that he did not have an earlier wife; however, Polly POOL greatly out-lived him, suggesting he was considerably older than she was and that, therefore, Samuel probably did have an earlier wife.

Children with Polly POOL (the eldest one or two of these may have been with Wife-1):
4.  (Son B) McCORD, b. 1810-20
5.  (Son C) McCORD, b. 1810-20
6.  (Daughter C) McCORD, b. 1810-20

Mary has shaved a few years off her age, as widow's are inclined to do.  Margaret McCORD appears to be an unmarried daughter from Mary's earlier marriage to Samuel McCORD.
