  • Notes 
    • The 1900 Census finds an Elizabeth Holston living with her father, Laban Fisher, age 78 and widowed, along with her daughter Mabel Holston, born March 1885 in Iowa. Arthur shows up in the 1880 census living with his parents, but then in the 1885 Iowa State census, it is not with his parents. It is presumed that he married sometime between the two dates. Considering all of the evidence, this is undoubtedly the wife of Arthur G. Holston. When he died in 1898 in Trenton, Nebraska she probably moved back to Marshall, Iowa to live with her father whose wife had also died.

      Page 2 of the 1925 Iowa State Census proves that Leah was born in Nebraska It also shows that the mother of Leah was Elizabeth Fisher Holston born in Illinois and that her father was Arthur Holston born in Iowa. Arthur and Elizabeth were married in Conway Iowa. Elizabeth's parents are listed as Laban Fisher (confirming earlier evidence) born in Ohio and Harriet Lovette born in Ohio also. Harriet and Laban were married in Zainesville Iowa. Rich Anderson was born in Iowa, his father was David Anderson born in Sweden, his mother was Nova Liggett also born in Sweden and they were married in Iowa.

      From her iowagravestones memorial: Sarah Elizabeth "Lizzie" Fisher, daughter of Laban Talon Fisher and Harriet Lovitt, was born July 17, 1861 in Henderson Co., Illinois and died in 1929 in Iowa. She married Arthur Holston in December, 1883 in Taylor Co., Iowa. License issued December 28, 1883. Source: Taylor County Republican, January 3, 1884 (paper misdated Jan. 3, 1883).
