While looking for my gggrandfather"s ancestors I came across
this report on plantations along the Chowan River.(Bertie Co.) Many
Holleys are mentioned. As a matter of fact, the Lazy Hill
Plantation in Colerain, NC appears to have been in the Holley family and then the Etheridge family. My gggrandfather's name was Thomas Leary Etheridge b 1821 NC,
m 1844 & d 1885 in Princess Anne Co., VA It is possible that he is decended from Capt. William (Willie) Etheridge
who married Mary Holley of Colerain,NC but I can't make the
connection. Would you know Mary Holley's other decendants
(other than Edward)?? Russell PS. I'll email you the report.
