If I have a family member or close friend of yours that you would like for me to transfer, I will be more than happy to, or if you want me to remove a memorial of your family member just ask and I will do it. If you find any mistakes I have made please leave a message.
I appreciate the flowers and notes you graciously leave on the memorials. They are all greatly acknowledged. My Father.  My Mother. My Sister.  All especially appreciated.

Annie Hollingsworth McDonald

I am so glad I stumbled across your posting. Your Annie was the d/o Mary Catherine Marsh and William James Hollingsworth. I believe Wm James Hollingsworth was born in the Gray's Creek Township of Cumberland County, NC. I know for a fact Mary Catherine Marsh was born unto Azor (Asa) and Elizabeth M. (Betsy) Marsh in the Gray's Creek Township of Cumberland County, NC.

If you enjoy family research. Your William James Hollingsworth MOST LIKELY descended from Valentine and Anne C. Hollingsworth of Welch Tract, DE. Valentine & Anne were the immigrants.
John Hollingsworth - of Valentine m. Catherine Tyler. Both left Quaker Faith and took Baptist Oath abt 1711.

Rev. Stephen Hollingsworth - distinguished NC Baptist Minister(of John, of Valentine) was among first patents (1735)of what is now Cedar Creek, Cumberland, NC. (east side of Cape Fear River) Catherine Tyler Hollingsworth Edwards died 1755 there.
Another patent on the west bank of the Cape Fear River was awarded to a Hollingsworth. I haven't gotten to the research of to whom this belonged.
You can google Valentine Hollingsworth for a wealth of information.
Hopefully, this will help you. Blessings. Cathrine
