Listed in 1870 census of confederate soldiers.

5 Oct 1885, filed: Ira S. & Amanda C. Spurlin to Daniel Holloway 34 A. for $102., Pine Swamp Crk. Alleghany Co., NC; Reg.,D. Bk. #5 pp 578-9 by F.M. Mitchell; waters Pine Swamp Crk., adjoining Wm. Brooks; Adam J. Waggoner, J.P.,R.S. Carson clerk Superior Court.

Later in life, divided his Pine Swamp Creek land among 3 sons, Eli,Robert,Monroe. Eli had the middle section of the farm.

Family story: Daniel walked back from northern Virginia with a Spurlin near the end of the Civil War. Spurlin had a broken leg and they slept during day and traveled at night. It must have been summertime, because they ate corn they found in the fields to survive.

(Possibly deserters--Daniel first hid out in a cave on the northeast side of Devil's Garden, and later lived in the hollow on the other side of the same ridge.)

There are 2 Daniel Holloways listed for NC Civil War:

Private in Company K, 29 NC Inf (Not Wilkes Co)

55th Infantry Regiment was organized at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, North Carolina, in May, 1862. Its companies were recruited in the counties of Pitt, Wilson, Wilkes, Cleveland, Burke, Catawba, Johnston, Alexander, Onslow, Franklin, and Granville. The unit served in the Department of North Carolina, then moved to Virginia where it was assigned to General J.R. Davis' and Cooke's Brigade. It fought with the Army of Northern Virginia from Gettysburg to Cold Harbor, served in the Petersburg trenches south of the James River, and took part in the Appomattox operations. The regiment lost thirty-one percent of the 640 engaged at Gettysburg and fifty-nine percent of the 340 at The Wilderness. It surrendered with 4 officers and 77 men on April 9, 1865. The field officers were Colonel John K. Connally; Lieutenant Colonels Alfred H. Belo, Abner S. Calloway, and Maurice T. Smith, and Major James S. Whitehead.
