"The Holly Tree", a book written by Betty Jackson about the family of Vincent Hollingsworth, Jr. begins in Wilkes County, North Carolina in 1782. He had 10 children and it branches out to 600 pages. He remained in NC until his death in 1816. Baptized St. Lukes Parish, Church Hill, MD.
Most of his children moved on to Clay Co. KY by 1810.
Isaac was the first to move on to Morgan County, Indiana by 1806 as a squatter. More of the family followed.
In 1840 Vincent's son William who married Rhoda Reed moved on to Gasconade Co., Missouri Caanan Township along with other family members. Five of theirchildren also came. James and his wife Martha Patsy Reed; Isam Marion and wifeNancy Newcomb; Mary and husband William McDaniel; Susanna and husband Larkin Henson; Rhoda and husband William Thomas.
The name was mostly spelled Hollingsworth until they moved to MO and then Hollandsworth was mostly used, although you find both spellings. These families branched out over southern MO and OK andbeyond.
Betty has used public records like census, and deeds and court records as sources. Many people contributed information and she gives credit throughout her book.
In doing research in the different states it shows the Hollandsworths loved the hills. from: http://www.angelfire.com/in/JMaxwell/ VincentHollinsworth
The early years of Vincent Hollinsworth of Wilkes/Ashe County,North Carolina are yet to be discovered. Family researchers have attemptedtolink him with a Vincent Hollingsworth, a contemporary of Queen Anne's County,ofMaryland who was the son of Vincent, Sr., son of William, son of John who entered the colonies around 1650. The evidence found to this point is more coincidental than conclusive; therefore, judgment must be withheld until the relationship is better defined.
He lived in Wilkes/Ashe County as early as 1782according to a county tax record. Ashe County was formed from part of Wilkes County in 1799. He died before late 1816 as indicated by the estate record concerning the sale of his land. He is listed on a North Carolina state census made between 1784 and 1787. His name appears on the first United States censusmade in1790, as well as a federal sensuses of 1800 and 1810.
Mary Hollandsworthwas among the heirs on the 1816 estate record previously mentioned, but itis not known whether she was the widow or a daughter. The identified childrenare: five sons - James, William, John, Beasley, and Isaac; five daughters- Mrs. Lemuel Lunsford, Mrs William Hubbard, Mrs Stephen (Winny) Reed, Mrs. William (Susannah) Cooper, and Mrs. Levi Potter.
In 1793 Vinson Hollonsworth received a state grant of 320 acres located on the North Fork of New River. William, his son, bought 135 acres of this land from his father in 1808. The above named estate record was for the sale of 190 acres located on the North Fork of New River.
Vincent Hollingsworth lived in Wilkes (later Ashe) county North Carolina from around the 1780s to 1816. Some of his children went on to raise large families in Clay county KY, Morgan county IN, and Gasconade county MO. William's descendants, who first settled in Gasconade county MO, have also livedin Crawford, Dent, Henry, Hickory, Laclede, Osage, Phelps, and Pulaski counties in MO. Most of the Gasconade county families adopted the spelling Hollandsworth, though my branch did not. William's wife, Rhoda, is said to have been a CherokeeIndian.
