Anita, My name is Larry McFalls my g-grandfather is Alney(his full name is Jonah Allen Alney B.McFalls. We have been trying to find out if his father is Arthur or one of his off spring or brothers.We have a Bible entry Saying Alney's mother was named Barbara "Holywood" we can find no holywoods in that area but lots of Holifield's, ,We suspect the name is holifield but we are not sure. Where did you hear the name Barbara Holifield in relation to Arthur? Alney was born in 1819 and his only sibling we know of(Mira Ann Vesta) was born in 1817, Burke County NC. You need to contact Gary Tharp, he is from the same line you described and has much information. He told me that Emsey 's brother was named William Austin Holifield born in 1776 in SC, and was married to Mary Morning Adams from Chesterfield SC. They had a son named Jacob born in 1798, Emsey's father was named William also.
