I just got back from the genealogy library and I did some checking on the Hollands and the Craveys. I noticed on the 1850 census of Jefferson County, TX that Henry Cravey, Jr. and his family were living near the Hollands;
1850 census, TX. Jefferson, p 237, (M432-912, p.237)
Oct. 1, 1850, HH 48
Henry CRAVEY, Jr. 24 m GA
Ellen CRAVEY, 16 f Miss
Charles H. CRAVEY, 4 1/2 m TX
Richard CRAVEY, 22 m GA
Someone had penciled in the name Holland next to Ellen's name. I then checked the book, History of Hardin County, TX and found an article stating that Eleanor Holland married Henry Cravey, Jr. in Jefferson County in 1849. (The area the Hollands lived became Hardin Co. when it was formed from part of Jefferson County in 1858.) I then remembered there have been a couple of mysterious daughters of Charles Sherwood Holland's whose names and lives have been unknown. I'm certain Eleanor must be one of these missing daughters. She and Henry are living next to Henry's father and his family. Nearby are the farms of Hugh McNeely, Allen Franklin and then the farms of Levi Hugh, Jacob Leroy, Charles Sherwood and Robert S. Holland.
