  • Notes 
    • A paper outlining my research into this family was completed in August 2010, updated in August 2012 and is entitled John Holston - Research Paper.
    • A document was unearthed in 2013 by Steve Seebart in the Library of the LDS Church in Salt Lake that proves that William Holston is in fact the father of John Holston. No evidence to date (Sep 2014) that links his presumed wife, Nancy Waller to this family. However, considering the fact that the father and siblings of John Holston have been proven there is little doubt that Nancy Waller is his mother.
