Again thanks for the information it confirmed what I had found on another site earlier.
Do you know what Christopher did for a living?
Also I am in contact with another researcher who is working on the Washington family of Surry co.,Va. using primary sources and she has informed me that the use of a middle name was very unusual back in those days,so there must have been a reason why Josiah went by Josiah John Holliman.
btw:We have a copy of Josiah John Holliman's will,it names all four of his daugthers and son-in-law John Clayton as one of the executors of the estate.
