As noted in the narrative on her father's page, Elizabeth Emily and her husband, Levi Holder, sometime between the birth of their daughters Mary (1852) and Henrietta (1856) returned to the land of Elizabeth Emily's youth, the area that had been part of "Old Miller County", Arkansas. The Holder's oldest daughter, Martha Jane, married Elliot B. Burkham, the son of Charles Burkham, one of the original settlers of "Old Miller County". Perhaps old family ties drew the Holders to Hopkins County, Texas. Other of the Holder children and granchildren married into families with names which were listed on the 1821 and 1825 petitions coming out of "Old Miller County": Nall, Ward, Crutchfield, Henson and Ballard.
The Levi and Elizabeth Emily Holder household was broken up prior to the 1870 census. Mary and Ellen were staying with different siblings in Hopkins County, Texas. Priar, age 18, was working as a farmer and living with the Chandler family. It would appear Elizabeth Emily died prior to 1870. Some have speculated Levi was also dead, but a record has been found of a Levi Holder marrying Setha Ann Harrell on January 29, 1874 in Hopkins County. It's possible Levi was living in the Indian Territory in 1870, as there weren't any census records for the Territory in that year.
