I don't know if they are any relation or not but there is William Holdaway (spelled Holloway in the marriage records of some of his children) in the 1850 Greene Co., MO census. He is listed as being born in TN and several of his children were also listed as being born in TN. A couple of his younger children were listed as being born in Illinois. William was a Justice of the Peace in Greene Co., MO. I cannot find them in 1860 in Greene Co. or any of the Counties formed from Greene ie. Webster, Christian, and even a piece of Douglas. However two of William's children married two of Patience Jackson's children. Her son Singleton married Martha Holloway in 1854 in Webster Co., MO and in 1880 were in Pike Co., Missouri which is north of St. Louis along the Mississippi River, bordering Illinois. One of their children was listed as being born in Illinois. I suspect a connection but cannot prove it. Many of the families who lived around or were connected with William in Greene Co., MO in 1850 ended up living in extreme NW Douglas Co., MO or in Webster or Christian Co.'s near the Douglas Co. Line.
I almost forgot, the other one of Patience Jackson's children who married a Holdaway (Holloway) was daughter Frankie. I cannot find a m arriage record for her and do not know for sure what Holdaway she married. I only know she shows up living with her mother in Ozark Co., MO in 1870 listed as Frankie Holdaway.
