What follows below is in no way comprehensive of Elijah Holliman's Civil War struggles but does allow us to begin to know of his life and offspring. Our thanks to Vonceil for this glimpse of her family and their lives in West Alabama. Any errors in these articles belong to me, and I welcome additions and corrections. - GNH

His second marriage was to Permelia Gibson ( 1834-1873). She is my great grandmother. From this union there were two children: William Green Holliman and Laura Jane (Jannie) Holliman, my grandmother. Unfortunately I do not have a photograph of Permelia or even know where she is buried.
