This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

James Holloman and Charlotte Everett Holloman probably married ca 1816.

James Hollomon was born 25 July 1795 son of Samuel Hollomon and Christine, his wife. James died 16 April 1855 in Hertford County, NC.
James left a will witnessed by only one witness, Dr. G C Moore and his children petitioned that his will be carried out.
[These Holloman lived near Mulberry Grove in the St. John’s area.]

One thought on “James Holloman & Charlotte Everett Holloman”

  1. Sally,

    My grandfather on my mother’s side of the family is Robert James Holloman. However, for some unknow reason, my grandfather, William Pritchett Holloman and Lilly Norfleete Holloman, all changed the spelling of their last name to Hollomon, all o’s. I know some of the history of the family and I going to work up some data for you and send it to you.

    William, Lilly and Robert, mother died from burns while there were babies, Robert was not even one at the time. The three were raised by some aunts in Thomasville, Alabama.

    When I was young, traveled many time with Robert down the farm in Wilcox, Alabama. I personally new William and Lilly.

    I am glad that I found this page of yours. I still live in Alabama, in Hartselle in the northern part of the state.
