I am trying to prove or disprove a theory. I had a great aunt, Nancy Holloway who I think I have located her married name?
I think she may have married a James Adams born in Missouri abt. 1867. They would have married around 1887. They would have lived in Saldo, Independence County, Arkansas in 1900.
I found this Nancy and family living next door to a known great-great-uncle Anthony Holloway, in 1900 census records. Nancy had a child named Eree on the census, an uncommon family name. Nancy had a sister by this name, in fact of the children living in 1900 all had Holloway hand me down names, Andy, and Anthony. If you think you can help me with this theory please contact me.
Below is Nancy's family.
