Greif-Hollingsworth--Wilson-Nelson Families of Iowa

Updated January 29, 2002

About Our Family Research


I have gained a lot of research on the Henry Grief family in Iowa
however, I would like to update and expand it back into Roth, Germany. Henry Greif married Ella Burnetta Ricke and had 5 children. Of these 5 children was my paternal grandmother Anna Mae Greif. My paternal Grandfather Walter Delbert Hollingsworth, the son of Benjamin F Hollingsworth and Clarissa Clark(daughter of John Clark). I have found no records on this
John Clark other than there was a brother to Clarissa by the name
of John Clark also. I have copies of the book by Ben Guise on the Grief family prepared 1980's postage will be the only cost as
there have been plenty of changes to the family since it was
printed.

Wilson-Nelson family on my maternal side includes my Great grandfather of Thomas Tull Wilson mar to Talitha Beckley-GG William Wilson mar to Martha Wharton--ggg John B Wilson mar to
Elizabeth Martin. With John B Wilson and Elizabeth Martin my information begins and ends in New Jersey. I have accquired books on Beckley-Wharton-Park family history which links my relatives bach to Revolutionary War period.
The research on John Nelson my maternal Great grandfather
yeilded a name change from Niels Christensen in Denmark. This was a huge find for our family and has spurred my mothers interest to the degree she and my sisters are planning a trip to
Denmark in June of 2002.
