Titus Hollinger was the earliest newcomer bearing this christian
likely sailed to the New World in an era, the records whereof are not
found/ or have been destroyed, so believes our British researcher. the
account of Titus , I confess, is found only on worthy hearsay. He was
likely born about 1700/ Irish tradition makes him an "officer." Alabama
records "Major Hollinger"/ Canadian & Ulstar tradition tell of several
men..named Titus & Andrew in several generations, coming to the New
World. Indeed our subject Titus, must have stepped ashore before 1750.
In 1750, in East Pernsboro, Cumberland
County.., Pennsylvanis, a tax
list o f the so-called Scotch-Irish colony shows, among many: Samuel
Fisher, Titus Hollinger, Samuel McCormick...& others./note Scotch-Irish
here means Lowland Scots & others British subjects who had been living
in Ulster & had fled to New World. An old item in the Archives tells of
the Prosprietaries' antagonism to them, holding them as being
non-farming folk; many of this colony migrated to the DSouth. Such is a
vague acciount of this important settler.

Times New Roman @
James Washington Hollinger was born abt 1825 in
Georgia to James Hollinger. His mother is currently unknown. He is
believed to be the great grandson of Titus Hollinger of Augusta,
He moved to Saline County (now Grant County) Arkansas sometime in the
1840's. He bought 200 acres of land there for $25 from the federal
government. It was beautiful land covered with pine trees. There is
currently a stone monument standing at the site of the town of Old
(now extinct) in Grant County, Ark. Engraved on the monuments are
of the pioneer families who settled this area. Hollinger is one of
names on the stone memorial erected by the descendants of these
James was a farmer but probably of necessity also hunted for food.
at the time was abundant with bear, wild turkey, and razorback
James married his neighbor Isaac Brumbalow's daughter Susan on the
day of September, 1852. They had children Archibald, Susan E.,
1856, James Isaac, born in Nov. of 1859, William, born abt 1865,
Ulysses S., born abt 1869.
James Washington served in the Civil War under both the Confederate
Union flags. For the Confederacy he served in Co. B of 1st Dobbin's
Arkansas Calvary Regiment. Some of the battles they were involved in
the battle of Helena (July 4, 1863), the battle of Little Rock
10, 1863), and the battle of Pine Bluff (Oct 25, 1863). James
Union forces in February of 1864, at the age of 39. His enlistment
say he had blue eyes, black hair, a dark complexion and was 6'1"
served in the 4th Arkansas Calvary regiment, company G. James is
to have died sometime between the 1870 and 1880 census and was buried
the Saline River. In 1892 James 200 acres was still owned by his
Susan and was appraised at $200.
As for the PA connection....I *think* Titus
and Mary Hollinger were
from or at least lived in PA. Their son, Titus, is reported to have
followed his father to Georgia/The South.
I'm still working on where Rudophus and his ancestors were from.
