    We cannot follow any records to match this date & place of death reported by the Tangled Roots for John Bell Holden.  No record has been found for this death or indeed for John.  Records for Margaret in 1880 and later don't include John, and her name in 1880 was Wigley, and Wigley children were in her home in Mississippi.  Perhaps John and Margaret had a rare divorce, but no record is found for that either.  No death record at all has been found for John Bell Holden.  Though some have identified a John B Holden with him, who married Martha Clanton.  The children of that couple, however, do not match the Holden children of Margaret Wigley.
