John Eatman had two deceased children Ruffin and Charity who married Jethro Harrison.In the settlement Jethro Harrison in right of his wife Charity and in right to wife Anna.
I am researching information on the Holland family of Choctaw Co. AL.Henry Holland my g-g-great grandfather was born Feb. 23, 1818 in NC and died May 18, 1855 in Choctaw Co. Henry full name may be William Henry Holland. He had a sister named Eliza that married a Thomas Horn and then Halsell.Henry's mother maiden name was said to be Eatman and that she married a Jethro Harrison after Henry's father death. His mother and Harrison had to daughters Kate and Mary. Kate married a long and Mary a Brook.I think Henry's father died when he was young and that his father's old maid sister, Parma Holland, raised Henry and his sister. Henry's father sister Nancy and Mary both were married to William Horn and there is a possible brother Exum Holland. Jethro Harrison had three nephew who may have moved to AL Adkins, Thomas and Henderson Eatman.
