Looking for any info on a Hughes or Hugh Holder, dob appx 1845-50, married to Mary Ann Elizabeth Rebecca last name unknown, children, Samuel dob abt 1870 Tn, William dob abt 1879 Tn,Della dob abt 1884 Tn,Harrison dob 1889 in Arkansas.My father-in-law is pretty sure his name was something with Hugh in it. His father was Harrison, who never knew what happened to his father, evidently older sons knew but were not allowed to talk about it.

Descendants of William Hugh Holder, Unproven ~OR~ Don't do as I do, do as I say.

Here is the information I have on this line:

Like all other information I share from my files it needs to be verified before posting as fact.

Descendants of William Hugh Holder

1 William Hugh Holder b: Bet. 1845 - 1853 TN
. + Mary Ann Elizabeth Rebecca ? b: Oct 1853 TN
2 Samuel L Holder b: 19 Oct 1872 TN*
.. + Mary b: 1873 AR
3 Mary Holder b: May 1894 Cherokee Nation, OK
3 Pearl Holder b: Aug 1898 Cherokee Nation, OK

BELOW IS TOTAL SPECULATION, and just a posibility
The William Hugh Holder you are looking for could be the same as Hugh Holder b. 1850

This Hugh was the son of Berryman Baylor Holder b. 1828 d. 22 Feb 1864 (Killed in action near Johnson's Mills, White Co., TN)
Descendants of Berryman Baylor Holder

2 Evaline Holder b: 1859 Warren Co., TN

The only sure way to narrow down which HOLDER line is yours is through DNA.

Bill, I have Samuel King Holder b abt 1851 as son of Jonathan and Sinthy (their son Saml 9 in 1860 seems to be King age 19 in 1870):
1850 Warren Co. TN census (p 143 #956) lists Jonathan 26 NC, Sinthy 25 TN, Organ 2, Pantheon 1, Samuel McSpaddin 72.
1860 Warren Co. TN census (53-433) shows Jonathan 32, Orgena 12, Panthaan 10, Saml 9, Patrick 8, and Wm. R. 6.
1870 Warren Co. TN census (p 141 #25 McMinnville) lists Jonathan Holder 51 NC farmer; Ardelia 20 TN; King 19 TN; Patrick 17 TN and William 14 Texas.

So do you think Berryman also named a son Samuel King? (Berryman was Jonathan's younger brother, and I know Berryman did have a Samuel, too, but I don't have an initial or middle name for him.)
And you probably know there was also another William about the same age as Hugh, Berryman's son--William b abt 1852, son of James (brother of Berryman)and Martha.

i think Samuel King Holder is the son of Johnathon Holder not Berryman Holder and what i have seen here in Warren Co there is no evidence that there were 2 Samuel Kings,Berrymans Samuel disappears sometime around 1870 King Holder is clearly in johnathons house in the 1870 census I have family members(whom are in there late 80s) that will tell you that Johnathon is the father of King Holder,I have noticed most of the tombstone dates of my family dont coincide with dates ive seen at the local library.This is speculation but i believe the reason King does not show up on the 1850 census in Johnathons house is because he hasnt been born yet also like other Holders whom passed around the time of his death i dont think his dates are correct on his birth stone

Hi I am trying to find out information about my grandfather Oscar Andrew Holder- who his parents were- and my father James Lee Holder who died when I was 4.( Oct 1956 ) Oscar married Jewell Moore.
I am now suspecting that my father James Lee and his brother Glen Holder may have a different mother than Jewell Moore Holder. I would appreciate any information or contact. I was separated from these people after my father's death. I am named after my grandmother Jewell. I would like this information for my own children

Do you know where your Holder family lived, and do you have approximate ages for your father, his brother, and their father? With that information, it may be possible to trace them back through the census records to connect with a known Holder family.

Also, if you have a living male relative with the Holder surname, please consider DNA testing. For more information on this, see the Holder DNA project page at

It looks like your Oscar Holder spent some time in Arkansas after Glen was born. From the 1930 census AR Woodruff Co. Augusta Twsp:
Oscar Holder age 35 married b. AR/parents AR Occ: Rigger steel work, answered no for Veteran status, also no answer for age at marriage for either Oscar or Jewell.
wife Jewell age 29 b. AK/parents AR
son Willie age 9 b. AR
son James age 7 b. AR
son Glenwel age 1 b. AR (I see it maybe Glenmel on image)

I found a family tree online that has oldest child as a Wilmuth Irene Holder b. 1920 in Crockett TN. As for the above census I have found many instances where the birth states conflict from census to census and birth data and daughter listed as son or visa versa.

As for the question about Jewell being the mother of both older children and Glen, since she is on the 1930 cenusus as the wife of Oscar at that time then she should be the mother of Glen. Now with the age gap between James and Glen then the question would be is Jewell of the census a second wife and the mother of the older children? Is here maiden name Moore or has the family mixed up wives/mothers names, if and I repeat if Oscar married twice. Need to find marriage record for Oscar Andrew(s) Holder. By the way what makes you question whether your father James and Glen have the same mother?

WWI Draft Card Registration filed in Carroll Co. TN
Osker Andrews Holder age 24 living RFD Whillhorne (?hard to make out) TN b. Oct. 13, 1893, natural born in Spring Creek, TN occ: farmer employed by Butler Fly of Whillhorn TN. Married, no claim of exemption, Tall, Slender, Blue eyes, light hair. Signed Oscar Holder (different handwriting than rest of card) June 5th 1917.

Haven't located a married Oscar/Osker/Oskar Holder in 1920 census yet, as he should have to be if oldest daughter b. 1920 and the above WWI card is your grandfather.
