Death: Feb. 5, 1892

John Quincy Adams Holliday was son of John Christmas and Sarah (Sally) Trantham Holliday. He was most likely born at the Hermitage Plantation, Home of President Andrew Jackson. It is not written in gold that he was, but given the documents I have and the dates, it appears that he was probably born there along with his sister Sarah Jane and a few other siblings including Andrew Jackson Holliday, who was obviosly named after the president. John's father John C. was a personal friend of Jackson's and fought in the battle of New Orleans with him and became overseer of the plantation while Jackson was president. Several of John C. and Sally Holliday's children where born on the plantation. I have documents from Andrew Jackson's presidential papers showing the relationship between 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. I think she may have been buried in the Wesley Chapel Cemetery in Mississippi, as John's parents are there as well as other family members. It would make since that she was buried there. Some of the grave markers have disappeared so we may never know.... Nancy Ann is at Cherry Hill Cemetery in Cherry Hill Arkansas where John and her lived at the time of her death. Death info in the book for John says he was buried at Spring Hill Cemetery. It says a robe was bought for $1.00 and the total amount of his funeral was $10.00, paid for in 2 payments by his book keeping company, O'Shea & Hinch. He was buried Feb. 6, 1892. It does not give a space where he is buried and I cannot find his grave, as records have been lost dating that far back. If anyone knows of records before 1970 for Barling cemetery please contact me at the address below. This cemetery is now Barling Cemetery. It changed from Spring Hill to White Cemetery then to Barling Cemetery. The town of Spring Hill is now Barling, just outside of Fort Smith in Sebastian County, Arkansas. If someone reading this knows anything about Frances Isabella please contact me at
