In Reply to: arkansas Hollensworth by Donald Wayne Hollensworth of 9

There is a Rev. H. B. Hollensworth born 20 June 1833 and died 1 Feb 1894 and Mary Hollensworth born 10 May 1835 and died 3 June 1903 buried at Campground Cemetery in Calhoun County, Arkansas. Is this any relation to you?

If it is, I descend from the brother of the C. C.(Charles Canada) Hollingsworth born 1823 and died 14 March 1891 who was married to Elizabeth (Riggs) Hollingsworth born 17 July 1828 and died 25 May 1899. These two are buried in the same Campground Cemetery in Calhoun County, Arkansas as the Rev. Hollensworth mentioned above.

Charles Canada Hollingsworth had a brother, Samuel A. Hollingsworth that married Arvinzena (Burk) in Calhoun County, Alabama 7 Feb 1844.

Harrison, Charles Canada, and Warren G. Hollingsworth, three sons of John T. Hollingsworth born about 1785 Virginia, were born in South Carolina and ended up in the area of Calhoun and Bradley Counties of Arkansas which is nearby Columbia County. According to places and years of births of children, the three brothers came to Arkansas between 1846 and 1848. Do you think that these brothers could be cousins of your Enoch? I'm grasping at straws trying to figure the parentage of our John T. Hollingsworth.

John T. Hollingsworth first appeared buying land at Six Mile Creek in Pickens, South Carolina in 1824. He sold in 1834 and moved with his children to the area of Benton/Calhoun County, Alabama where he died. I do not know if he came the Tennessee route or Georgia route to get to Calhoun County, Alabama (either route seems possible for many different reasons that I will not go into at this time).

If you think we should compare more notes, I'll post you more information. I don't know when Arkansas started recording deaths, but in some states it was by 1903. I say this because the Mary Hollensworth above died in 1903. If there is a death record, it might have listed her parents which might be a clue...if you think these Hollensworths could be connected to you.

Thanks for looking at the long post...looking forward to your reply.
