A Portrait of old Georgetown by Grace Dunlop Ecker, Dietz Press, Richmond, Virginia, 1951.
They had two daughters, Roberta, who married William Frederick Hanewinckel of Richmond and Jennie, who married [November 20, 1865] Colonel Hollingsworth.

Colonel Hollingsworth was the Superintendent of Mount Vernon before Colonel Dodge. I remember Colonel Hollingsworth well, a tall, fine-looking old gentleman, with a long, white beard. Of course in those days we went to Mount Vernon by way of the river, on the steamer W.W. Corcoran. It is still, I think, by far the most pleasant way to approach the dignified old mansion and Captain Hollingsworth would often be on the boat and talk with us. I've never forgotten the dear old-fashioned nosegay he picked and gave me from Mrs. Washington's garden. Mrs. Hollingsworth was a tiny little old lady. I can see her now with her snow white hair and her big, black bonnet. Poor soul, it was a terrible trial to her when the place had to be sold after her husband's death.
