A Holliman History by Walter O. Holliman, Part VII

by Glenn N. Holliman

This is the seventh in a series of a history of the Holliman family written by Walter O. Holliman in 1995 and edited in 1996.

Walt named this generation as the 'Fourth' and began it with my second great grandfather, Uriah Holliman (1818 - 1862), a successful farmer who enlisted in the CSA in 1861, and along with his son, Charles, died of the measles in Okalona, Mississippi after the Battles of Shiloh and Corinth.  A tragic waste that took the Holliman family generations to recover. 

The above represents the extent of information available to Walt in the early 1990s, before the Internet age.  Additions and corrections welcome.
