Thomas Spencer Holloway married Elizabeth Motgomery Bain in Lexington, Fayette Co., Kentucky on April 2, 1807. They were the parents of a son named William and other children.
There a number of Holloway "Cousins" who believe that William LOWERY Holloway (b.1806 in Barren Co., Kentucky) was this son.
I believe that William PATTERSON Holloway was Elizabeth & Thomas' actual son. He was born in 1809 or 1810 in Lexington, Fayette Co., Kentucky. This fits with the parents marriage in 1807 in Lexington. The William Patterson Holloway family was centered in the Lexington, Kentucky area. Patterson was a family name in the Bain family. William Lowery's DOB of 1806 and his place of birth in Barren County just doesn't seem to fit.
There seem to be some parallels with the two Williams. Both William LOWERY & William PATTERSON Holloway wound up in Mississippi.
Does anyone have any proof of which William is the correct one? I would be happy to share my documentation. I have good proof that William Patterson Holloway is correct.
