|The above estate is the only source of the exact date of death of Frederick Hollingsworth. His grave or his marker have never been located. Also note that the names and ages of all his heirs are given.|
|Following deeds in Jasper County, abstracts, show what was indicated by the "10 acres of timber land." ...|
|(3) Deed Record Book 43, page 355, Jasper Co., Iowa, John C. Wilson, Recorder|
|April 10, 1868||Grantor: Wm. L. Johnston and Sarah A. Johnston, his wife.|
|Grantee: Frederick HOLLINGSWORTH, Marshall Co., Iowa|
|Location of land: North East quarter of the South East Quarter of the South West Quarter, Section No. 1, Township 81 North, Range 21 West of the Fifth Principal Meridian, Iowa, containing 10 acres more or less, in Jasper County.|
|(4) Deed Record Book 60, page 630, Jasper Co., Iowa. C. W. Chinn, Recorder.|
|April 29, 1872||Grantors: Elizabeth Hollingsworth, Wallace Hollingsworth,
E. E. Hollingsworth & Rachel Hollingsworth; Jacob Hollingsworth & Lizzie Hollingsworth,
Samuel Hollingsworth & Fidelia Hollingsworth.
|Location of land: North east Quarter of the South east Quarter of the South
west Quarter of Section # 1, Township 81, North of Range 21 West of the 5th
Principal Meridian, Iowa. (containing 10 acres, more or less.)"
|So it can be seen that the land bought by "Frederick Hollingsworth of Marshall County, Iowa," in 1868 was the same which was devolved to his widow and heirs, by the appraisement and settlement of his estate in April, 1869, and which was later sold, as above, by all heirs mutually, his widow, four sons, and the wives of the three oldest sons also being mentioned. This type of record collecting is called "Connective Genealogical Data," and should never be overlooked! To be sure, it is tedious, time-consuming, and doubtless "boring" sometimes, but it is legal proof. Such legal proof is the rare thing in a genealogical search. We of Frederick's descendents are lucky to find such records. We only wish the same were true for the rest of the Hollingsworths in America, and for us with respect to Frederick's ancestors in Ireland!|
