I've been researching this Holley "clan" since 2/2012. Chris would be my GG grandfather's son. His father was Davidson Holley b:1820-21 in Lincoln Co. Tennessee. His mother: Sarah/Sally Roe b:1823, most likely, Tennessee. M: 4/29/1841 Lincoln Co. Tennessee. In Barry Co. Mo. on 1860 federal census. Davidson joined the CSA in the fall of 1861 @ Pocahontas, Ark. Christopher's brother, John, stayed in Missouri and joined the 1st Arkansas Cavalry in 1862. (UNION) Chris also joined the UNION. The 46th Missouri Inf. CO. D in Springfield Mo. He and brother John survived the war, father Davidson apparently did not. E-mail me for more info.
