Searching for information on Griffith D Holley b.abt 1825.wife sarah (Boaz?).He is in the 1860 Pitts. Co Va census,with a son named Thomas L Holley b. abt 1849,daughter Sarah A E b.abt 1851,and another son Washington Holley b. 1856. They are not found in 1870 or 1880 census.I suspect that the Thomas L may be my great-grandfather for whom I have been searching for 20 years.
Thomas Holley married Sarah Catherine (Witcher) in 1870 in Coryell Co Tx in 1870.Their eldest son was named Samuel Golden/Gaulden Holley,born 1879.Which makes me wonder if he was named for the Gaulden family in Pittsylvania county.
Thank..Ron Holley

Any information about any Holley-Gaulden connection in Pittsylvania County Va in the 1800s would be appreciated..
Thomas Holley born about 1849-50 married Sarah C Witcher in Coryell Co Tx in 1870. I think that this Thomas Holley may have been the son of Griffith & Sarah (Boaz) Holley,who married May 25,1846 in Pitts. Co.I have not been able to find Griffith in any census later than 1860.

Griffith D. Holley and son George Washington Holley are found on 1880 Pittsylvania census as G. D. Holley and G. W. Holley (same household). Both Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest index them as G. D. Halley and G. W. Halley.
