In Reply to: Jasper HOLIFIELD by Jodie Hollifield of 577

Sorry Jodie, I had done a search here, and ran across you search for a Jasper. I had not read your previous post, with the parental information, until after I had already posted my response. After reading your original post, I realized there was no connection.

And, as far as this William Jasper's parents, I do not know much about them, just that his mother was Tempia/Tempa J. Hollifield, who is believed to be the daughter of Esom Hollifield. Some have told me her name is Tempia Mace Hollifield. So, she may have been a Mace who married into the Hollifields, but, have no proof. A death certificate on William Jasper's brother, Adolphus Ervin Hollifield, has his mother's name as Tempa J. Hollifield. Father is unknown.

This is what is what census info I have on Tempia/Tempa:
