The family history of my ancestor John L. D. Holder is proving hard to find prior to his marriage to Martha Suttle in Alabama.
The facts I presently have: Married Martha Suttle (b. 1815 Elbert, Ga) on 7 Feb. 1832 in Perry Co, Alabama.
1850 U.S. Federal Census of Slave Holders: Winston County, Mississippi 1850 U.S. Federal Census: Winston County, Mississippi 1860 U.S. Federal Census - Slave Schedule: Winston County, Mississippi 1860 U.S. Federal Census - Neshoba Co., Mississippi 1870 U.S. Federal Census - Neshoba Co., Mississippi
They had six known children: Elizabeth Jane (b. 1836 in Alabama) William L. (b. 12 Mar 1843 in Winston Co., Miss; d. aft 1920 in Prairie,Franklin, AR) John Francis (b. 1844 in Mississippi; d. Arkansas) Thomas (b. 1850 in Mississippi; d. 1900 in AR) Laura (b. 1852 Miss; died before 1884) Elijah L. (b. 1857 in Miss; died before 1910 in Mississippi) who is my great grandfather.
Any help, leads, direction, tips or pats on the back would be appreciated.
All the best,
Sara Fortenberry (Holder/Holman/Hollowell/Fortenberry)
