Where are Holley and/or Precinct 18, Coffee County, AL?

I'm trying to find the graves of:

Benjamin B. Jackson (1842-1916)

Candasie (probably Caudacia) Jane Stroxdill Jackson (1847-abt 1926)

They are listed on the 1900 census as living in Holley, Coffee County, Alabama.

On the 1910 census, they are listed in Precinct 18, Coffee County, Alabama.

Can anyone tell me where Holley and Precinct 18 would be found on a map?

Thanks,
Jennifer Jackson

There is a Holly Store and a Hollys Ferry in the SW corner of Coffee County near the Geneva county line.

I don't find any of the names you have listed in the Coffee County Cemetery Record Book

1) Benjamin Jackson, 59, born TX, Precinct 6,family listed
2) Benjamin Jackson, 28, born AL, Campbell precinct, family listed

Hope this is of some help.

Thanks! Now I can find it on a map, and spread my search that way. This will make it so much easier :)

Alas, no, these listings aren't my Benjamin Jackson, but I think they are cousins, and I'll come back to them when I get to that branch of my tree. Thanks for the look-up.

Jen :)
