Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

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!
