Most of my Holts (e.g., Fielding Holt) left in the early 1800s to go to middle Tennessee, as can be seen in my postings on the Holt Genforum. Their parents Richard and Mildred Holt died in Henry County circa 1785 and 1803, and their oldest child William Holt died there in 1838; all lived, and probably are buried in the Grassy Creek area, which is why I was looking for that specific cemetery. A few sisters apparently married some husbands (e.g., George W. Faris) and they were living in the area circa 1850.
