I finally received a death certificate on Jesse Holloman. It shows date of birth as February 27, 1850 in Golconda, Pope County. Date of death December 29, 1922 in Golconda, Illinois. Occupation farmer. Father is given as Hick Holloman, born in Lusk, Pope County. Mother Bettie Ann Gains (or Goins), born in Lusk.
Now how many times was Hickman married? The Illinois database of marriage records lists Hickman Holloman of Pope County as having been married twice in 1845. The first time on 1/10/1845 to Nancy Jane Isoms. The second time to an Elizabeth Ann Harper on 12/20/1845. Could Elizabeth Ann Harper be the same person as Bettie Ann Gains (Goins)? I can't find a record of a third marriage so I have to assume that Bettie Ann Gains was married first to a man named Harper before marrying Hickman, and that they called Elizabeth Ann "Bettie Ann". However, I can't find a record of her earlier marriage to Harper in the Illinois database.
Thanks in advance for any response or help!
