**The Holding Cemetery was moved to the Old Madison City Cemetery. There were two large monuments on the premises (GPS 34.641758, -86.760001) of the Huntsville International Airport, in the International Intermodal Field, adjacent to the East side of Wall-Triana Hwy. Stones were for Richard Holding, Amelia Holding (2nd w/o Richard Holding) & son Benjamin F. Holding. These monuments can now be found in the Old Madison City Cemetery.  [CW Austin 24 Mar 2014]

Note: I (Dorothy Johnson) first canvassed this cemetery in about Spring of 1970. When I re-checked it in April, 1978 someone had made an attempt to clear the trees and brush (which helped), but it is still terribly overgrown. The tombstones are all off their pedestals and lying on the ground. [Dorothy Johnson, 1978]
