John Holloway Obituary
From the scrapbook of Sarah Jane (Sledge) Holloway wife of son Ulysses Grant Holloway. One son, John, was born 27 September 1881 a few days after his father's death so total children would be nine instead of eight as the obituary states. Young John married Cordia Miller and settled in Malden, MO.
