Re: Mississippi Hollis' of Calhoun,co.Miss
I am interested in the information you have.
My great-great grandfather was Uriah Wilburn Hollis who married Eliza Eads Cox. Uriah was b. 1832 in Alabama and d. June 14, 1914 in Eastland County, TX. My great-grandmother (daughter of Uriah W. Hollis) was Nancey Ella Hollis. Nancey Ella Hollis was b. April 1, 1870 in Mississippi, d. Sept. 3, 1953 in Anthony, NM. Nancey married Andrew Jackson "Jack" Walker Dec. 24, 1888. "Jack" was b. July 29, 1856 in Bowie County, TX.
Uriah's father was Ransom Hollis, b. 1810 in South Carolina, married Nancy Adams.
Ransom's father was Reuben Hollis, b. abt. 1783 in South Carolina and d. in Kemper County, Mississippi.
Do any of these names mean anything to you?
