Like my Clark ancestry, my Holloway ancestry was also a gift to me from a second cousin, once removed, Clark H. Hamilton, back when I first started tracing my family lines.  Clark's mother, Margaret Rose Holloway Hamilton, had spent many years in tracing and recording her family history before it became the popular thing to do.  Upon her death, Cousin Clark became the keeper of the records and his graciousness in sharing her work with me is deeply appreciated.

I have been able to further the work in a few areas of more recent lineages, but the brick walls Margaret encountered in her work sadly remain standing today.

This symbol  represents my direct lineage.
