Do you know if Joseph had any brothers my GGgrandfathers name is Jack or John Hollis and I cannot find any info on him either. All I know is that Jack or John was from Atlanta, GA and he was married to Kate Mahoney also of GA. They had Three children one named Jack or John and the other, Thelma and the other one died around the age of 4 of scarlet fever...I can't remember what her name was but, it was something common for that time like Sarah or Emily. Thelma was born 4/28/1905 and Kate the wife was born 11/22/1872. That is all the info I haveas far as birthdate as my family has held alot of secrets. This is what my ggrandmother Thelma taked about when I was younger. They lived in or around Atlanta where she was born her father or family picked cotton or lived on a plantation. She spoke often of the help she called her "Mamie" She loved her like a mother. She also spoke often of Cherokee Indian heritage but, acted like it was taboo. My ggrandmother married a Harry or Harold Arthur LeClair and divorced in the 1940's and lived in or around Syracuse, NY. She had 4 children Josphine (Which I think she was named after someone), Juanita, Charles, and Harry Jr. whom died in WW2 flying over France during the Normandy invasion. He is buried there. Around 1947, my ggrandmother and my grandmother Josphine, Aunt Juanita, Uncle Charlie moved to California to start a new life with my GGrandma's Thelma new husband Ronald Peters.
