Henry Holt

Because of a DNA match with a Henry Holt from TN, I'm trying to locate his exact place of birth. He may not have been a Holt, since rumors were that he fled TN during the Civil War to avoid punishment for being a bushwhacker. He was born around 1847 and was in Floyd Co., KY by 1865. There was one Henry Holt, born in the 1840s to Preston and Rutha Holt that I cannot find after the 1850 census. My Holts were in the Grainger Co. area, and this Henry Holt has to be related to my gr-gr-grandfather Pleasant Holt, based on DNA results. Pleasant did have at least one out-of-wedlock child (Perrin Collins), who was given his mother's maiden surname, so I've searched for a Henry Collins, with none found being the one who could possibly have been Henry "Holt." I would also be interested in any Henry Evans born in the 1840s, since we also have a perfect DNA match with an Evans. The third name I'm looking at is Henry Perrin/Perren, because there's one in the 1850 Grainger Co. census: in the Lewis M. Ellis household are George, James and Henry Perren. I've found no records on any of these Perrens other than this one. Henry "Holt" named a son "Perrin" and perhaps for the reason that he was a "Perrin" himself. If anyone has any info on ANY of these Henrys, I would be very interested in getting it. Thanks,
Jane Holt Whitis
