Shirley Hollis Rice Thu Nov 28 10:58:25 1996
James Hollis bought land in 1753 from the Loyal Land Company on Catawba Creek,Augusta Co, VA. During the F/I Wars they removed over the moutains to Bedford County where his son James II was born in 1759. In 1761, they left Augusta County and settled in what is now Whythe County before relocating to what is now TN in 1774. There had been a George and a John Hollis is the Augusta area at the same time. Where did 1st Hollis family came from? The Hollis, Choate and Gist families seem to have long connections and ultimately lines of all three of these families ended up in Wayne and Lawrence County, TN, and intermarried along the way. The Maryland Hollis family had connections with Choate and Gist which leads one to wonder if James I came from MD. There was also a Hollis famiy in Fairfax County, VA, and they had a James. He ended up in SC, so they don't seem to fit. Help or hints are appreciated. I have a good deal on James II and his descendents. Will help others in our line if I can. Ciao!
