    Birth 1828 Williamson County, Tennessee
    Death Feb. 5, 1892 Sebastian County, Arkansas

    John Quincy Adams Holliday was son of John Christmas and Sarah (Sally)Trantham Holliday. He was most likely born at the HermitagePlantation, Home of President Andrew Jackson. It is not written ingold that he was, but given the documents I have and the dates, itappears that he was probably born there along with his sister SarahJane and a few other siblings including Andrew Jackson Holliday, whowas obviosly named after the president.

    John's father John C. was a personal friend of Jackson's and fought inthe battle of New Orleans with him and became overseer of theplantation while Jackson was president. Several of John C. and SallyHolliday's children where born on the plantation. I have documentsfrom Andrew Jackson's presidential papers showing the relationshipbetween the two.

    John Quincy was married to
    1. Frances Isabella Baskin,1848
    2. Nancy Ann Philpot Roby,1864,and
    3. Sarah A. Sanford,aft 1879 who is buried at Barling cemetery.

    I have not been able to find when and where Isabella is buried. Ithink she may have been buried in the Wesley Chapel Cemetery inMississippi, as John's parents are there as well as other familymembers. It would make sense that she was buried there. Some of thegrave markers have disappeared so we may never know.  Nancy Ann is atCherry Hill Cemetery in Cherry Hill, Arkansas, where John and shelived at the time of her death.

    Death info in the book for John says he was buried at Spring HillCemetery. It says a robe was bought for $1.00 and the total amount ofhis funeral was $10.00, paid for in 2 payments by his book keepingcompany, O'Shea & Hinch. He was buried Feb. 6, 1892. It does not givea space where he is buried and I cannot find his grave, as recordshave been lost dating that far back. If anyone knows of records before1970 for Barling cemetery please contact me at the address below.

    This cemetery is now Barling Cemetery. It changed from Spring Hill toWhite Cemetery then to Barling Cemetery. The town of Spring Hill isnow Barling, just outside of Fort Smith in Sebastian County, Arkansas.If someone reading this knows anything about Frances Isabella pleasecontact me at
