I'm not sure what you are really asking. John and Rachel are found on the 1870 Lumpkin Co. census:
John 32 b NCworks in goldmine Rachel 28 b SC Jacob 3 b GA William H 1 b GA
They live a couple of doors down from Miriam Hollifield age 53. She was born NC also. There is also a Jonathan Hollifield age 24 and his family living in another household. He's also born NC and works in goldmine.
You can email me at email@example.com if I can help you further.Lori
