Searching for information on Griffith D Holley b.abt 1825.wife sarah (Boaz?).He is in the 1860 Pitts. Co Va census,with a son named Thomas L Holley b. abt 1849,daughter Sarah A E b.abt 1851,and another son Washington Holley b. 1856. They are not found in 1870 or 1880 census.I suspect that the Thomas L may be my great-grandfather for whom I have been searching for 20 years.
Thomas Holley married Sarah Catherine (Witcher) in 1870 in Coryell Co Tx in 1870.Their eldest son was named Samuel Golden/Gaulden Holley,born 1879.Which makes me wonder if he was named for the Gaulden family in Pittsylvania county.
Thank..Ron Holley
