Hollingsworth Family of Clarke County, Alabama

Jonathan Augustus Hollingsworth (c. 1815- 1861) and James Arnold Hollingsworth (1824-1863) were brothers and the sons of John Hollingsworth (1792–1832) and Mary Ann ____ (1792–1840) of central Georgia. They were most likely residents of Twiggs County and may have moved to Talbot Co, Ga the early 1830's.

The family was primarily engaged in Agriculture (farming). Their father, John died c. 1832, probably in Talbot County followed by their mother c. 1840. Location of their grave sites are unknown.

Jonathan Hollingsworth Sr married Mary Ann Thomas in Talbot County, Georgia on Dec. 18, 1837, Soon after marriage, they moved to Chambers County, AL and resided there for several years prior to moving to the Grove Hill Community in Clarke County located in southwest Alabama. They were the parents to the following

John A, Hollingsworth (1841– )
Pauline E "Lucy" Hollingsworth (1843 – )
Rachel Melissa (Hollingsworth) Singleton (1845–1915)
Israel T. Hollingsworth (1847– )
James Hollingsworth (1850– )
Mary Ann Hollingsworth (1853– )
Jonathan A. Hollingsworth (1859–1900).

Prior to 1860, the family moved to Clarke County, Alabama. It has not been determined if all of the children made the move with the family to Clarke County. Only two for certain made the move, Rachel Melissa and Jonathan, Jr. Rachel married a Singleton and moved south to Escambia County, and Jonathan, Jr settled in the Clarke County area. There is no evidence that Jonathan, Sr served in the American Civil War.

Jonathan Augustus Hollingsworth was probably among the first to be buried in Hollingsworth Cemetery.

Mary Ann (Thomas) Hollingsworth is mostly buried in the same Cemetery.
