William Holliday,
Military service in Georgia, No. R5149 [A rejected claim] Pickens Dist., SC 3-30-1852 personally appeared William Holliday, resident of Greenville Dist., SC age 88. He volunteered under Capt. Walker in Wilkes Co., Georgia in the Rev. War “when he was but a youth to continue during the war.” Maj. John Rhines, other officers not recollected. Marched to Augusta and was there at [Elijah] Clark’s defeat. He marched through Georgia, SC and was in battles in Augusta, at Wrightsborough “which town was burned by the Whigs on driving out the
British.” He served under these same officers for two years and six months and was honorably discharged, though not in writing. He did not know the necessity of getting and preserving such a thing, and now at his advanced age he is unable to recollect, to tell anything like a connected account of his service.

In answer to the questions submitted by the War Dept. He answered:
Born in Columbia Co., Georgia 2-7-1764. His sister has his father’s Bible, in which his birth is recorded, and which he had seen several years ago. Holliday lived in Wilkes Co., Ga., when he entered service and remained there until about 40-50 years ago when he came to SC. He was a volunteer, serving with no regular unit, and received no written discharge. Persons of respectability whom he has known and who can testify to his character are Dr. John C. Sullivan, John Bagwell, Austin Williams, Esq., Hiram Cooly, Hon. T.E. Ware and Capt. Adam Jones.

Signed- William (X) Holliday.

Signed-Israel Chapman and Stephen Smith.

Greenville Dist., SC 2-18-1856, personally appeared Mrs. Elizabeth Pike, aged about 87, who has known William Holliday, a Rev. Soldier, nearly all her life. Her father Daniel Johnson lived near Augusta, Ga., during Rev. and was a soldier the greater part of the war. It was about the
time Gen. Clarke, in whose army her father was serving, marched against the British at Augusta, that she became acquainted with Holliday, who was then in a company commanded by Capt. Walker in Gen. Clarke’s army.

During the siege of Augusta,  Holliday came with her father to her father’s house and had a wound in one of his thighs, which he said was  received at the siege of Augusta, and which Mrs. Pike remembered having  assisted in dressing. She was also informed that Holliday was appointed
a Lt. For his good conduct at this siege. Holliday remained at her  father’s house until his wound had healed, then returned to duty with  her father Daniel Johnson in service under Gen. Clarke, against the  Indians in Georgia and East Tennessee, as she was informed, until peace
was declared.  William Holliday afterward moved to Greenville Dist., SC where Mrs. Pike
had also settled, and married a woman by the name of Cooly. Holiday  still resides in Greenville Dist., and is the identical person whom she  knew as a soldier in the War of the Revolution. Signed-Elizabeth (X)  Pike.

Pickens Dist., SC 4-5-1852,
personally appeared John Bagwell, who said he saw “Little William Holliday” in service in the Revolution marching through SC under Gen. Clark from his defeat at Augusta, Walker the Capt. They were from Wilkes Co., GA. Bagwell stated he saw no more of Holliday until after peace, when Holliday moved to SC and lived in the same neighborhood ever since. Holliday had told Bagwell of the battles he was in, and the times and places of these battles. Bagwell believes Holliday to have served the time stated, and added “the said Holloday is a good
citizen and moch to be relied on and worthy of his pension.
Signed-John (X) Bagwell.

Introduction to William Holliday* paper....

William Holliday married Nancy Cooley, daughter of Jacob Cooley of Pittsylvania Co., VA and Greenville Dist., SC. Nancy was the widow of David Reese** when she married William Holliday.  Her Reese children can be proven  but her children by William Holliday
cannot be proven with any certainity. Nancy Cooley & David Reese had  Jacob, James and Elizabeth Reese.

It can be proven that Nancy Cooley Reese Holliday was alive in 1807 when her father deeded her a Negro. She had died by 1816 when her father’s  Greenville Dist. undated will was recorded Nancy was surely dead by c 1810 as William Holliday and his second wife, Sarah/Sallie Cothran, had a daughter born  1811.
