Seek info. on Nellie Hollensbe, b. abt 1867, dau. of Ed Hollensbe and his second spouse, Sarah A. Paul, daughter of Clarinda Pearce and Wm. G. Paul, and identification of the other child born to this couple after 1860. Ed had 12 children with his first spouse, Sarah Osborn, and six of them were alive in 1897. Seek info. on any descendants of Clarinda Pearce Paul, history and/or access to photos of her or her children for Pearce family history. Clarinda was listed in the 1880 USFC as Clarinda depaul.

Nellie may have married in Decatur Co. ca. after 1885. She was only child listed on 1880 USFC at home so sibling may have been married or gone; thus, born between 1861 and 1864 most likely; and reportedly alive in 1897.

Was Ed Hollensbe a farmer in Washington Twp.; or did he have something to do with the Hollensbe Quarry in Decatur Co. Was he linked to the quarry in St. Omer?

Any leads appreciated. Perhaps through Nellie and any descendants of her's, more on Clarinda's family may come to light.
