      Dr. James E. S. Hollyday

      Dear Sir --

      I received your very agreeable letter and will gladly give you the desired information concerning our family. Thomas Waring of Prince George&Fuquars County, Maryland, brother to your Clement Hollyday, Leonard and Francis Waring, emigrated to Kentucky in the year 1783. His sons were Francis, James, Rodger, Thomas Truman) Greenfield and Basil and his daughters Mary Hollyday, Dorcas, Lydia and Sarah Whitehead. James died in Mason County when he was 17 years old and buried there. Rodger died in Ohio in 1816 leaving two sons Thomas and James and two daughters Mary Hollyday and Ann.

      Your uncle James Waring who married a Miss Boone died about fifteen years ago five years after the death of his wife. They were buried in his farm in Tygarts Creek. Their five sons were James H(addock?), Francis, Humphrey B., Stephen and Basil Waring and two daughters Nancy and Mary are all dead except Humphrey, Basil and Nancy. Humphrey is living on the farm where his father died. Basil lives in Illinois and Nancy in Ohio.

      I will now give you the names of my sons and daughters. They are Basil, James, John Truman Greenfield, George, Leonard, Thomas, Nathan and Francis and daughters Lydia, Mary and Martha. Lydia Fuqua lives in Missouri and has a large family. Mr. Fuqua is dead. Mary Fuqua and her husband are living in Kansas Territory and have four sons and four daughters. All the rest of my children live in Greenup and Lewis County and have large families.

      Your uncle Francis emigrated to this state with his uncle James in the year 1786(?—hard to read) and married my sister Mary H. Waring. They had no children but adopted Mary H., daughter of Rodger Waring, whom my oldest son did married. They live on Tygarts Creek and had four sons and seven daughters – Francis, John F., Basil and Rodger. John died. Their daughters are Susanna, Martha, Lucinda, Sarah (?) and Agnes. Lydia Walton, Mary Hollyday and Ella, Susanna and Lucinda are dead. Martha is married and living in Lewis County. Jane is married and living in Iowa.

      My son John lives in this county and has eight sons and three daughters. His sons are William, Thomas T.G., Charles, Nathan, George, Richard, Francis N. and Zach Taylor. William and Richard are dead. His daughters are Nancy, Sarah, and Elizabeth.

      Clement H. had five sons Thomas, Barton (?), Holliday, Richard, William and James and two daughters Melvina (?) and Elizabeth. Thomas, Barton, and Richard and both his daughters are dead. The others are married.

      My brother Basil had four sons, John S(?), Francis, Clement (?) and James E.(?) and four daughters, Sarah, Mary, Sarah Lydia?, and Agnes. All the sons are dead except James E.(?).

      Brother Francis died about a year ago aged eighty-four years. He was never married. Sister Dorcas married Mr. Lytle (?). She lives in Ohio. They had four sons and one daughter. All are living. Mr. Lytle is dead. My sister Sarah is still single. My Aunt Martha married Thomas Wheatley and Aunt Elizabeth married John Wheatley and Aunt Margery married Mr. Compton. They are all dead but their descendants live in Mason County and Indiana.

      I am now in my seventy-nine year and have a great number of grandchildren and great grandchildren whose names are not mentioned here. Your uncle Frank Waring of who you wrote was drowned in the Chesapeake Bay. This information I received from my father. We would like to know what became of ____ Susanna and cousins (??) Berrys live (five?) children.

We are happy to know that you manifest so much interest in our welfare and would be glad if you would favor us with a visit.
