1S. Mary Polly Holman
CENSUS: pg. 116 of 1880 Clay Co., TN census book has her??? listing. She is listed as being 78 years old from South Carolina and a pauper. Her children: M. A. (Macklin?), age 50, born TN; and Polly, age 41, born TN; are also with her. They are living in the Poor House with the Pennington's keeping house. NOTE: not sure if Polly is her daughter or may be possibly her daughter-in-law. No relationships are given in the listing, only surname and then given names.

Catherine Overstreet is NOT Overstreet Holman's mother. Joanah W. Overstreet is Overstreet's mother. I only know that Overstreet and his parents and siblings families lived in Overton Co., Tennessee and he also reared his family there too.

That was when he went to get a statement from James Lovell concerning the Overstreet-Holman-Barksdale Supreme Court battle of the 1850s.
Information on his family can be found: 1900 Clay Co., TN census, pg. 295A and B.
