  • Notes 
    • (Research):The will of her father, Thomas Bailey shows her as Edney Holson (Holston). Therefore, she must have married a Holston from Hardin Co., KY. But which one? For now, she is shown as the wife of Robert Holston based on the following facts:

      Her father's will shows that all 3 girls married men by the name of Holson (Holston).
      A marriage record exists showing that John Holston married Nancy Bailey in 1811.
      A marriage record exists showing that William Holston married Merincy Baily in 1810 and that Thomas Bailey was the bondsman for the marriage.
      Robert was in Lebanon, KY in 1820 and in Hardin County, KY in 1830 at the same time as Thomas and William. John by this date had moved to Edgar County, IL.
