John Rebeckah were my 3g grandparents. Their daughter, Sarah married Jacob Quick
about 1824. I would like to know the rest of John Rebeckahs children Johns parents. I know the Holtzclaw line back to the 1500's in Germany.Sarah Jacob were my 2nd g grandparents.

Do you, by chance have a James Atwell Holtzclaw in your line? I do not know his birth, but he died about 1847 in Wheeling, West Virginia. He was married to Eliza McDonald (b. 1822, d. 1889). Sure would like to trace them. Thanks for any help you can give. My e-mail is jmwalters_us

Are you still doing genealogy on Rebecca
Holtzclaw John Capps? If so, I'd be
interested in what you have. They are my 3rd
great grandparents via their daughter, Sarah
Catherine Capps. Here is my line:

John Capps Rebecca Holtzclaw
Sarah Catherine Capps John Walker
Julia Frances Walker James Barclay
Vivian Barclay Chester Hayden
Susan Hayden (me).

I visited Liberty, Clay County, MO
and Lathrop, Clinton County, MO in August
and got a lot of info on the Capps including
slave auction notices with Rebecca Capps and
son-in-law Wm. Groom's signatures on them and
other slave info. John Rebecca Capps are
buried in Little Shoal Cemetery near Liberty.
I visited their graves. Her name on the tombstone
is "Rebecca" Capps. They are buried side-by-
side enclosed in a wrought iron fence. I
have pictures. Plus at the Archives, I obtained
several pages of a Holtzclaw family Bible that
came with the Holtzclaw family from VA to MO,
giving birth names, birth, death, marriage dates
not only of themselves but it gives the same info
on their slaves. I would be very happy to share
what I have with you.

Please contact me here or at

Catherine Capps. Here is my line: John Capps Rebecca Holtzclaw Capps

I'm a descendant of Jacob Holtzclaw and his wife, Anna Margreth Otterback, and I'm the administrator of a family website on with about 200 cousins. One of them is a descendant of Rebeckah Holtzclaw and John Capps, too.

I will send her lineage, which is fine with her, and I would love to see the bible info that you have. Whose bible was it?

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
