~~~~~~

Thomas Holliday m Martha DICKERSON somewhere and lived in
GA-Wilkes ca 1800. He has been claimed DAR from VA, although I had
thought he was a son of William b 1823 Ireland there. Any ideas here?

Previous records show the will of William Holloday of VA-Spotsylvania
1744. From Crozier's Spotsylvania Records, p. 8 (abstracted from
Spotsylvania County Will Book A 1722-1749, page 431): "William HOLLODAY,
St. George's Parish, d. Dec. 4, 1744 [1774 in Boddie], p. May 6, 1746
[1776 in Boddie]. Wit: William WALLER, Matthew GAYLE, Henry ROGERS.
Ex. sons, Charles and Robert. Leg. wife Anne; sons John, Charles, George
and Robert HOLLODAY; daughter Elizabeth, wife of Thomas DILLARD;
grandson John ROBINSON; grandson William HOLLODAY, son of Robert
HOLLODAY, all my land in King William Co [VA]; grandson William
HOLLODAY, son of John HOLLODAY, remainder of my land in Spotsylvania Co;
daughter Ann, wife of John ROBINSON."

Recall previous posts where Elizabeth Duvall m Robert Holliday and Nancy
Duvall m Caleb Holliday and they lived in IL-Hamilton/Jefferson area abt
1830s. The potential IL connection is interesting. Also, my relative
Zachariah Holliday's in-laws were from VA-Pittsylvania and there are
other TX connections to nearby VA-Wythe.

One Robert S. Coleman and wife tried to eject Lewis Holliday from land
he claimed about 1807. Numerous definitive land transactions and other
records of John the Ranger were cited. Lewis was descendant of the
Ranger. More if interested -- want more, if available.

Robert Holliday, a Ranger descendant who seems to be the one who died
1803 GA-Elbert, was associated with Duvalls in some VA-Henry or
VA-Franklin court records.

Vaughns and Williams people were intermarried with descendants of John
Morton Holliday of TN-Hardeman (1761-1849). The Vaughns also had MO
connections. John Morton is s/o Robert in previous paragraph.

The will of William Holliday 1744 VA-Spotsylvania above was apparently
ignored in Alvis' book [At least I cannot find reference to it]. It
seems to me he was a close relative of the Ranger. Dave Holiday
