HOLLADAY - Descendents of Ada E. Holladay

I have been researching my family genealogy since August of this year. I am the great granddaughter of Ada E. Holladay, who was the mother of Maggie Rhame, my grandmother whom I never knew. Maggie had three children: Charles Herbert Murray, Margaret Elizabeth Murray and my dad, Quintin Arthur Murray. They have all passed.

I would like to make a connection with a Holladay family member(s) who is related to or descended from Ada E Holladay. My father and his siblings lost touch with much of their family on both sides in the late 1920s. After my grandfather, Clarence Murray, died prematurely, my grandmother put the children in the Charleston Orphan House, where they spent most of their childhood. When they were old enough, they left the orphanage to join the service and work on their own. 

I would love to know more about Ada and the Holladay family.
