Query: I am researching the family of Jeremiah Hollinger of Blair
Co, Pa. He was the son of
Samuel Hollinger who apparently resided in Miami co, KS along with
his wife Nancy (Baker)
and several children. Apparently, he had a family in Kansas, and
then at least some family
members returned to PA, because my his son, Jeremiah, was the
mother of my GG
grandmother, Susan Hollinger, who lived in PA. I would appreciate
any information on the
Hollingers who lived in Kansas and what their migration story was.
Jeremiah's brothers and
sisters who were born in KS that I know of were: Jacob, Simon (who
Smith), Lewis (who married Stuffy Carper), and Louisa (who married
There are references to several Hollingers in
Vol 2 of the cemetery
index (Delilah, Elizabeth,
Jake, Lemuel, Nancy, Samuel, and Simon). The Hollinger family is
also mentioned in the
history of pioneer families of pages 202 and 203.
I would really appreciate the information that
is available on this
family in Kansas. At this
point, it is a real stumper to me why they would have gone from PA
to KS and then (at least
some members of the family) come back to PA.

Response: The references on pp 202 and 203 of
Family Histories and
Stories of Miami Co.
do discuss Samuel and Nancy Hollinger, their son Simon Hollinger
and his wife Elizabeth
Smith, their grandson Lemuel Hollinger and his wife Delia May Day,
their grandson Boyd
Cecil Hollinger and his wife Esther May Renner, and their children.
The actual text runs about
a column and a half, and includes two photographs - Boyd and
Esther, Lemuel and Delia. The
text is interesting but doesn't do much to clarify why they moved
to KS. Apparently the family
came to KS in 1877 in a group of four families, 16 individuals,
traveling by train. They spent
their first night in KS at the farm home of D. H. Longenecker who
had come from PA. They
paid 1000 dollars for 80 acres.
Other incidental references to this surname are
found on pp 146,
313, 345 of Family Histories
and Stories. In Vol II, Cemeteries of Miami Co, KS, p 127, Pleasant
