Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
My mother, now 88, knows very little about her mother's family and was interested. My wife has been researching since the 1980's and now I'm retired and have the time. I'm active in a local genealogy group at our local library, and have taken a college class in Genealogy.

Were any of your Holloways married to a Power and went to Frederick Co., VA. and Rowan Co., NC.? I have a Mary Holloway who married John Power on Christmas day 1735 at the Holy Trinity Church in Wilmington, Delaware, so if she was a Quaker she was marrying out of her faith, as her and John are not in any Quaker records. They moved to Frederick Co., VA. and then Rowan Co., NC. Mary was probably born about 1717, if she was 18 when she married. Do you have any Mary's born about that time?
