I'm trying to help my cousin find her great great grandparents.
Frank Creed Holley was her great grandfather. According to the 1880 Williamson Co, TN census, he was born in 1840 in TN, his father was born in VA and his mother was born in TN.
He married Nancy "Elisebeth" Parker Scruggs in 1871. Elisebeth was previously married to Fountain P Scruggs on 24 Oct 1861 in Williamson Co, TN. She had a son named Fountain Scruggs with her first husband, and she had two children with Frank: Nanny (possibly Nancy?) and Willie (William Eugene Holley).
I have scoured through familysearch.org and ancestry.org and I can find no record of any of these people prior to 1880.
There is a Frank Holly in the 1870 Williamson Co, TN census living with a John M Wilson as a farm laborer. I think this may be the same Frank except that the age is off by 6 years. We know how those errors were a frequent occurrence.
Also, there is a Frank Holley (b 1838) in the 1900 Davidson Co, TN census as a patient at Nashville Ward 13. This is definitely him since his step-son, Fountain P Scruggs is also in Davidson Co, TN at that time and his son, William E Holley, is living with Fountain.
If any one knows who the parents of Frank Creek Holley are, I would greatly appreciate it if you would share the information with me.
