I am looking for any information on John H. Holloway. (The H may stand for Hicks or Howard) He was born in SC, maybe the Edgefield Co. area, around 1818. His father was born in VA. and his mother in NC. (Who were his parents??)
He was living in Pontotoc Co. MS in 1880 (1880 US Fed Census) with his wife Martha (unknown) age 56 (est 1824) and children: (sons) Jessie age 22 (est 1858), James age 19 (est 1861), Edwin M. age 14 (1865) (my greatgrandfather) and Ramson age 12 (est 1868).
How did he get from SC to MS...did he live in GA?...AL? for a time? I have been unable to find anything prior to 1880.
Any information would be great.
