  • Notes 
    • Some researchers have suggested that Mary might be Mary Groom.However, other researchers have found the Mary Groom married to a John Hollis was some 100 years previous to this Mary. So, this is not the case. Likewise, some researchers have suggested that Mary was a Trantham, but no evidence has been presented for this hypothesis either. To date, Mary's identity and ancestry remain a mystery.

      It is presumed that Mary is buried in the Brawley's Fork cemetery along with John Hollis, her husband.

      CENSUS: Based on the enumeration of John Hollis, it would appear that this person occurs in that house.

      Ted Hollis says that Jesse Hollis, son of Mary & John, in NC lives next to a family that includes all of the names Micajah, Hudson, etc.that are repeated in the Hollis family. Teddy feels like this family is Mary's family and carries her name, but he was unable to recall immediately what that name was. (10 Jul 2010)
