About Levi Hollingsworth

 

John married Kezia Lutishia Swinea and stayed in Hardin County until his death in 1880.  Some of his descendants are currently in Adamsville, McNairy County, Tennessee.

 

Sarah married James Swinea and spent the rest of her life in Hardin and McNairy Tennessee (probably she never moved, the county line moved).  She had two daughters but only Joe Hannah and her husbands William Jaggers and Thomas Sawner had children.  Their descendants are currently in Tennessee, Texas, and Ohio.   

 

Jordan married Sarah Amanda May and took his family to Madison County, Tennessee and later to Chester County.  At least one of the descendants of Jordan’s son Henry is still living in Shelby County, Tennessee.

 

Margarett (whose husband, Andy Prior, was a Church of Christ minister) went to Whitesboro, Grayson County, Texas.  Their daughter Myrtle was the only one of their 7 children who lived to be an adult.  She married Austin Corbett and they lived out their lives in Mannsville, Johnston County, Oklahoma.  Margarett’s brothers Jessie and Henry followed her to Whitesboro.  They also wound up in Johnston County, Oklahoma. 

 

Jessie married Mary Frances May and had only one son, Luther – Luther had no children so there are no living descendants of Jessie with Hollingsworth names.  Jessie had two daughters, Pearl and May. May married W. H. Veal and moved to New Mexico. 

 

Henry M.  (the M may have been for Martin) owned one of the cotton gins in Mannsville, Oklahoma.  He was a Church of Christ elder (sometime minister) who’s on record as having performed several dozen marriages in Mannsville.  He was an active man all his life.  His grandchildren said he’d be alive today if he hadn’t climbed the pecan tree – fell and broke his leg.  Henry married Larissa Sullivan and had 4 children - one son and one daughter lived to be adults.  Daughter Mamie had no children, but son Roy had 3 sons and 4 daughters.  Roy had 10 granddaughters and 7 grandsons.  Three of Roy’s grandsons are named Hollingsworth.  Henry’s 120+ descendants currently live in Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, and Florida.
