Thank you, thank you, you made my day. My daughter spent a year alone in Germany while her husband was in Bonia and she researched the Holts and someone got her into this deal that Michael Holt was German. The guy even wrote to me......he claimed the Morman church has records that Michael Holt was German because he lived in that community of Germans in NC. So I did my own investigation. There were some Holts that went to Germany during the Norman Invation, but they changed the spelling to HOLTZ.
Yes I do believe we are from the same lineage. The part of the family I am trying to nail down is the Group with Henry Holt that went from NC to Texas by wagon train. Henry was the wagon master. There were 50 wagons. They settled in different locations in the west. My grandmother, Isabel, Isobel, Isabelle????Holt was married to Richard H. Coleman My father was the youngest son of this family. One of my aunts researched the family in the 60's, but I haven't been able to get ahold of that but will sure share it if I can get it. I have some things I will send you if you give me your address. My address is M.Alferez, 3130 West Vel View Drive, Spokane, WA 99208 Thanks and lets stay in touch. MA
