Re: Dinah Holllingsworth, Supposed Wife of Jesse Moody
My family is from Franklin Co., NC, and Family Finders says that I am a distant cousin to Valentine Hollingsworth of Chester Co, PA.
However, I haven't been able to find the right connection.
The first time I located a Hollingsworth was in 1814 with a William C. Hollingsworth.
In 1817, William T. Hollingsworth moved to Franklin Co.He is listed in 1830 and 1840 federal census, and I also believe he is 1850 census, but I haven't seen it yet. (In 1850 census, names of all members of families and ages are listed).
William T.had a son named Sweetman Clyde Hollingsworth who was born in 1818 and died in 1896 in Franklin Co., NC.His wife was Mary E. ____, born 1818 and died 1875.There is a Sweetman C. Hollingsworth family cemetery a few miles from Centerville. There are a few children buried there.
Members of the Nelms family are also buried in cemetery.
