A to Z Blogging Challenge 2013: H is for Hollingsworth

Over the last few weeks, I have been able to add several surnames to my list of names to research for our family. One of them is Hollingsworth. My great-great-great-grandmother Carolina was born to Alexander Abner Walker and Eliza Ann Hollingsworth.

Eliza was born 3 September 1813 in South Carolina. I do not have the exact place pinned down yet. She died 19 September 1903 in Edgefield County, South Carolina and is buried at the Hollingsworth-Walker Cemetery, which is located on Shields Road, apparently wayyyyyyyy out in the boonies down a dirt road. I've never been to the cemetery. I didn't even know it existed until recently.

Here are two photos of the cemetery, one of the road into the cemetery, and a photo of Eliza's tombstone.

Source: These photos were taken by Find-a-Grave volunteer Toby Tovar. I have his permission to use them here.

There is still quite a bit for me to learn about this part of my family. It will be a fun adventure!
