Generation 3
Drury Holt Sr. born abt 1770 in VA died Feb 16, 1835 in Pine Knot,
McCreary Co. KY (apparently in a tavern brawl). Married Elizabeth
"Betsy" Rogers. I've heard a couple of different guesses about Eliz.
father. One was that her father's name was Calvin, and the other
was Doswell. Elizabeth was born about 1770-5 in VA and according
to Nelita Snow, she died in 1852 in Whitley Co. KY.

Drury and Elizabeth "Betsy" Rogers' children:

Drury Holt Jr. born January 20, 1801 in Hawkins Co. TN Married Sarah
Kendall. Died March 11, 1883 in Rush Co. IN

-------------------
Doswell and Alice Wright Holt (I'm guessing Alice may have been
called "Allie". That was what my great grandmother was always called
and she was named for Alice Wright Holt) Alice was born in VA in
the 1790's. Died after 1870 in Boone Co. AR I believe her parents
were Calvin and Susan ? Wright.

Rutledge abt 1840 in Cumberland Co.

Drury Holt's parents were Nathaniel b abt 1748 and Abbigail Clanton b
abt 1742 in Albermarle Parish, Surry Co. VA. Abagail's parents were
John Clanton and (I've see 2 different given names for her mother
1. Amy and 2. Lucy Ann)Surname- Wyche.******************

Nathaniel Holt made his will on January 23, 1811 and the will was
admitted to probate in Sussex Co. VA Nov. 3, 1814. In his will,
Nathaniel refers to his wife as "Abba", I have seen other references

Some of this information was found in "Ryan Roots" by Rebecca Sidwell.
Isham Right Holt born 13 Feb 1820-23 Cumberland Co. KY.

This information was from the Holt family decendents
Isham Right Holt, born April 18, 1819 in Burkesville, Cumberland Co.,
KY
There is a question as to the spelling of Isham's middle name, whether
it
is Right or Wright after his mother's maiden name.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
Genevieve Viscarra Karr wrote "History of the Isham Right Holt Family",
excerpts follow. Isham Holt was first married in Kentucky and fostered
five children by his first wife who died there. After her death he
moved to Harrison, Arkansas, and took with him his children and his
second wife.
It is understood that she was dissatisfied there and later returned to
KY with their son.

Isham met Lydia Ryan in Harrison AR, where she was teaching school. On
Oct. 2, 1859, Isham married Lydia Elizabeth Ryan.

Some time after the war, Ida, (Allie's sister) grandma's third child,
was drawing water from the well during the winter, there was snow on
the ground and she slipped and fell into the well. It was lined with
stones. Ernest went down into the well to recover her body. Lillian,
the fourth child, died at the age of two and a half months, on
September 8, 1866.

Eleven children, six boys and five girls, were born to Isham and Lydia
Holt. Five of the boys and three of the girls grew to adulthood. The
boys were: Ernest, Isham Ryan, Alfred, Elgin Bryce and Walter.
Charles, the youngest child died at the age of 15 months on June 7,
1881, at Lone Pine Canyon, Frisco Valley, New Mexico. His was the
first funeral held in the valley. The girls who grew to adulthood
were: Alice, Elizabeth May, and Lydia Valeria.

Their first child, Alice "Allie" Louise, was born on June 16, 1860,
in Harrison, AR, and their last child Charles Leo, was born March 1,
1880 in Harrison. It must have been soon after his birth that grandpa
decided to move to Alma, NM. A former neighbor, who was a Mormon, had
settled there. He and grandpa corresponded and he persuaded grandpa to
follow. They started from Independence, Missouri in the spr
ing and it took 6 months to make the trip on the Santa Fe Trail. It is
known that they stopped in Las Vegas, NM for a month.

On the way to Alma, NM, they crossed the Rio Grande just above Socorro.
The Rio Grande was then known ar the Great River and the crossing was
known as the Spanish Crossing. I don't know what route they took to
Alma. It could have been down the river on the west side of the Rio
Grande, or they could have taken the route west through Magdalena,,
Apache, and Reserve. They settled in Alma and were neighbors of Mormon
Preacher Williams (someone they knew in AR).

Grandma said the ranchers fought Geronimo and when there was a burial
in the cemetary after a skirmish, the young men would keep guard during
the burial. Grandma said one day while they were eating dinner she
looked up and saw Indians at the door and all the windows. Fortunately
they were friendly and wanted salt.

In a pact with each other, the ranchers agreed that there was to be no
un-necessary hunting or shooting because a neighbors might think the
shooting signified an Indian attack. One day the older boys found a
skunk in a large lard can and they shot it. Grandpa was ranting mad at
the boys.

Grandpa's oldest son by his first wife was named Isham and lived at the
ranch for a time. He was known as "Big Ice" and Isham Ryan Holt ,
Grandma's (Lydia) son was known as "Little Ice".

Grandpa, Isham Right Holt, was known as Judge Holt. One of the high
peaks in the Mogollon Mountains was named Holt Mountain. On the
highway a short distance north of Pleasonton, there is also a Holt
Gulch.

Correction from earlier Drury Holt post today (I had the wrong
generation, among other things).

First of all, be prepared, there are many Drury, Doswell, Henry,
Crispin, and Calvin Holts. It seems at least one each generation,
and sometimes more.

This information comes to me from Nelita Snow, a Holt researcher for
over 20 years.

Drury Holt Sr. born abt 1770 in VA died Feb 16, 1835 in Pine Knot,
McCreary Co. KY (apparently in a tavern brawl). Married Elizabeth
"Betsy" Rogers. Elizabeth was born about 1770 in VA and according
to Nelita, she died in 1852 in Whitley Co. KY, not Boone Co. AR as
I indicated earlier today.

Drury and Elizabeth "Betsy" Rogers' children:

Henry H. Holt b May 12, 1787 in Hawkins Co. TN
Married Catharine Jane Gray Oct. 15, 1811 in Shelby Co. KY
Henry died July 28, 1879 in McCameron twp., Martin Co. Ind.
This is the Indiana connection, see their children listed below.

Doswell Holt born May 7, 1790 in Hawkins Co. KY Married Alice Wright
about 1806 in KY. Died Nov. 1840 in Cumberland Co. KY
This is my line, and I have names and dates for anyone interested.
I'll post some of what I have on this line tomorrow.
