I am searching for information about my Great Grandfather Richard C. HOLLIS. He was born Feb 1847 in Georgia (I Think), died and buried 1912 at the Prospect Church on Tallassee road in Clarke County Ga. He was married twice. First to Martha Mary AKINS 27 Mar 1870. Her parents are Edward and Mary AKINS. Richard and Mary had nine children:
Ella HOLLIS spouse George WILLIAMSON, William Thomas HOLLIS spouse Clyde NIXON, James Walter HOLLIS spouse Mary Lula MCCRARY, George Washington HOLLIS spouse Annie Odessa COLLIER, Francis Marion HOLLIS spouse Mary Elizabeth MCREE, John D HOLLIS spouse none, Andrew Jackson HOLLIS spouse Leila B. COLLIER, Henry HOLLIS spouse none, and Mary Jane (Mollie) HOLLIS spouse Robert Berry DOTTERY. I believe Mary AKINS died about 1892 As Richard married Mandy R ARCHER about 1893. Richard and Mandy had five sons: Bart HOLLIS spouse Mary TURNER, Jesse S HOLLIS spouse Gertrude CARSON, Ernest Dewey HOLLIS spouse Mamie TUMBLIN, Lewis HOLLIS spouse Belle MAXWELL, and Howard HOLLIS spouse Willie Mae WHEELER.
Mary Jane HOLLIS and Richard Berry DOTTERY are my grandparents.
I found a Richard C Holece 9 years of age in the 1860 Georgia Federal Census Jackson County Chandler District. He is living with John S Arnold 36, Louisa Arnold 33, and Elizabeth McDaniel 27. Could this be my Richard C Hollis? Anyone out there researching Richard C Hollis or any of his children? Please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance.
