Thank you for taking the time to respond to my message. It is proving to be an interesting journey but nevertheless frustrating at times. I have been reading some of Doug Hollingsworth's input into the various forums and so will follow up with that suggestion as he does seem to know quite a lot about the various Hollingsworth lines. It seems many people agree with your comments about problems with obtaining information from BG. I am hoping to turn up information from maritime records as another option as John Alexander Hollingsworth was a Master Mariner. Once again thank you for your time and suggestions.
