Life History

about 1904

Born in Arkansas.1




  • In the 1900 census, Jane is married to William H Holden.

    In the 1910 census, Jane, lsited here as Janie C, is married to JamesCriswell.  Two Holden children are listed with Janie in the householdCriswell hosuehold.  This was my fist awareness of the Holden marriagebefore I found the 1900 census only about 2 years later.  The firstchild is Caldonia, age 9, and the second is entered as what looks likeWattie Holden, age 6.  Caldonia is reported as Female, while the lastchild is reported as Male.  THe transcription spelled this nameMattie, but I was sceptical, knowing that as a woman's name, short forMartha.

    A note in late December 2008 from a descendant indicates thatCaldonia's brother's name is Mattie, rather than Wattie.  I amthinking Mattie could be a nickname for Matthew.

    "I am related to some of the McSwains. Second cousins, you listed someHoldens, Caldonia and Mattie, that was my grandmother and her brother,I reconize some of the names remembering her talking about living withthe Criswells and the McSwains, down in Arkansas, I think I even havesome pics of some of the newer McSwains.  And mabey some of theCriswells."
