Looking for information on Russell D. Holtsclaw born 14 Feb 1864, Watauga or Mitchell County, NC.
He married 1886 Tempie.
Tempie and Russell are listed in the 1900 census of Mitchell County, NC. They have one son William T. Holtsclaw born Nov 1889. Tempie was born 22 Feb 1865, died 9 April 1906.
Russell married 2nd Sallie Furgerson born 1 Aug 1891, died 2 July 1966, Carter County, TN. Russell died 30 April 1947, Carter County, TN.
I believe Russell was a son of Rufus Holtsclaw born 1832. Was his mother a Gwinn?
Who was Ann Gwinn? Who were the children she had by Rufus Holtsclaw? Does Peobe Gwinn fit into this picture someplace?
Was Russell D. Holtsclaw and William R. Holtsclaw son of Rufus and Louisa McCleard one and the same person?
What was Tempie Holtsclaw's maiden name. In 1900 census records it is recorded that she has been married 14 years and is the mother of 8 children only one of her children is alive in 1900.
Has anyone been able to prove a marriage for Rufus Holtsclaw and eithe of these women, Louisa McCleard, Ann Guinn/Gwyn/Gwinn or Pheobe Gwyn/Guinn/Gwinn?
