Dorinda Holder (ca. 1856-?)

Several children were added to this family group on February 29, 2004, but we still have some questions about their dates, spouses, and children. Can anyone help?

Previously we listed Jacob Holder (bet. 1831/35-?) m. Elizabeth Fansler (bef. 1838-?) as another child of David and Rachel. We still aren't certain whose child he is, but we note that he doesn't appear with David and Rachel in the 1850 census. There is a Jacob Holder age 26 in 1850, living with Michael Holder and Catherine Dunway in Forsyth County, but listed after their known children, suggesting he is not their son. If born about 1824 rather than in the early 1830s, then he is too old to be the son of David and Rachel.

In 1860, Jacob Holder age 26 appears in Clemmonsville, Davidson County with wife Elizabeth, also 26, and children Irena 16 and Emma age 10 months. Since Elizabeth and Emma are still together in 1880 and Elizabeth is then listed as age 63, we think that the 1860 ages are probably a wild guess by the census taker and that both may have been in their 30s by then. If so, then this may be the same Jacob who is age 26 in 1850.

Could he be a son of George Jacob Holder and Rebecca Williams?

----------

Children of Henry Holder and Anna Fensler [name corrected 2/29/04]
Sarah D. Holder (1832-1907) m. William Longworth (1828-1898)
daughter, name unknown, m. _____ Armsworthy
Charity Holder (1835-?)
Lucinda Holder (ca. 1843-?)
Margaret Holder (ca. 1844-?)

We would be grateful for more documentation on this family.

Henry and Anna married in 1829, and only Charity, Lucinda and Margaret are living at home in 1850. Circumstantial evidence suggests Sarah Holder Longworth was another daughter. Is this correct?

Emily Armsworthy was born in 1865, and appears with Henry and second wife Angeline in the 1870 and 1880 census records.
In 1880 she is identified as a granddaughter. Who were her parents?

----------

Child of Jacob Holder and Nancy Allen
Joseph Holder (ca. 1856-?)

----------

Children of Eli Holder and Agnes Binkley
William J. Holder (ca. 1844-?)
Elizabeth K. Holder (ca. 1847-1914) m. George Thomas Dull (1838-1931)
Margaret Holder (1849-1916 m. Martin Van Buren Warner (1840-1919), his second wife
John T. Holder (1852-1896) m. Martha Jane Warner (1843-1931)
Nancy Holder (1854-1925) m. William L. Warner (1862-1935)

The 1840 census suggests there was another son, probably born about 1840, and presumably died before 1850.

----------

Children of William Holder and Susan Etchison
James Francis Holder (ca. 1855-?)
Philip M. Holder (ca. 1859-?)
Sarah Elizabeth Holder (ca. 1862-?). Did she marry Eugene Crotts in 1899, Davie Co.?
Clementine (Dollie) Holder (ca. 1867-?)
William Holder (ca. 1874-?)
Mary Holder (ca. 1877-?)

----------

Children of Samuel Holder and Julia Whitman
George A. Holder (ca. 1847-?)
Martha L.A. Holder (1848-1932) m. Emory Winburn Jones (1839-1901), his second wife
Andrew Holder
Marilla Holder

George and Martha appear with Samuel and Julia in the 1850 census. In Samuel's estate settlement, 1856, three children are named, Andrew, Marilla and Martha. Are George and Andrew different children, in which case George must have died young?

----------

Children of Jesse Holder and Nancy Malinda Martin
Henry W. Holder (ca. 1852-1930) m. Mary A. Hester, d/o Robert Hester and Janie (Jemima?) Ayers

Maria Holder (1858-1931) m. Francis M. Hire (1858-1938)

----------

Probable child of Sarah Holder, d/o Martin Holder and Elizabeth Shelton
Joseph Elijah Holder (ca. 1857-?)

In 1900, Sallie Holder born 1856 is living with Thomas V. Ridings, listed as his aunt. Thomas was son of Lisetta Holder and Alexander Ridings, so we think Sarah or Sallie must be Lisetta's sister, daughter of Martin Holder and Elizabeth Shelton. In 1860, Elijah J. Holder age 5 is living with Martin, Elizabeth, and Sarah. In 1870, Elizabeth and Sally Holder are living together, but no child is with them. In 1880 Sarah Holder age 52 is head of household with son Joseph E. Where was Joseph/Elijah in 1870? He doesn't appear in the index to the 1870 Forsyth Co. census.

----------

Children of John Holder and Susanna Beyers
William Harvey Holder (1852-1854)

----------

Possible children of Jacob Franklin Holder and Elizabeth Fansler
Irena Holder - listed in the 1860 census as age 16, male
Emma Jane Holder (1859-?)
*John Franklin Holder (?-1936) m. Frances Virginia Barlowe (1866-1948)

Jacob Holder died in 1865. In 1870, Betty Holder and children Jane 11, Irena 18, and John 9, are living with Nelson and Nancy Holder in Clemmonsville, Davidson County. *John's birthdate appears on his death certificate (for which his son Roba S. Holder was informant) and gravestone as March 4, 1854. We would assume that the birthday month and day are correct, since presumably a son would know that, but suspect that this year may be wrong. He doesn't appear in the 1860 census, in 1870 he is age 9, and in 1880 he is 18. The 1900 census gives his birthdate as May 1861; the 1920 and 1930 make him age 62 and 71 respectively. His baptism at Hope Moravian Church is recorded on October 5, 1862, consistent with birth in March 1861 or 1862.

Maria Holder (ca. 1870?)
Theodore S. Holder (ca. 1874-1950) m. Lila/Lula Queen

*William Holder appears consistently with Albert and Rebecca in census records, and is buried in the Holder family cemetery in Clemmonsville along with other children in this family. However his birthdate (27 Mar 1855) is inconsistent with Albert and Rebecca's marriage date of April 1857. Is one of these dates wrong, or did Albert have a previous marriage?

**Mary Holder appears in the 1870 census, age 5. She is said to be the Mary Holder buried in the family cemetery at Clemmonsville with dates transcribed as 1855-1878. (There is a note that other stones in this cemetery are unreadable, suggesting that 1855 may have been misinterpreted here.)

Laurann does not appear in the 1870 census but shows up in 1880 as Laura A., age 15. Are Mary and Laurann actually the same child, in which case this cemetery identification is incorrect? Or was Laurann left out of the 1870 census, in which case they may have been twins?

[dates corrected September 2, 2007]

John Wesley Holder married Mary Bradford in 1883 in Davidson Co. NC. The settlement of his estate in 1936 names grandchildren Bessie Viola Rothrock and John Reuben Rothrock. John Reuben's later death record shows his parents to be Flossie Holder and Reuben Rothrock.

Previously we stated that Flossie's death record (in November 1918, a few months after John Reuben's birth) gives her parents as Wesley Holder and Amanda Dalton, not Mary Bradford. This was based on the Forsyth Co. death index. However, the NC death certificate available on line from Ancestry.com names her mother as "Miss Bradford" which is consistent with the family as listed above. [revised 12/8/08]
