My name is Roger Holt and I have a brother on this site who's name is Alan. My father was Jerald Mack Holt, born in Ames, OK, died in Enid, Ok and is buried in the Orion Cemetery in western Oklahoma, My grandpa was John Mack Holt. He was working as a lineman for the phone company before marrying grandma(Vina Adams) and settling in Ames. He purchased a farm in western Oklahoma near Longdale and Fairview, OK. He retired in Fairview, died in Enid and is buried in the Ames, OK cemetery. Our family came from the Alsace-Loraine region of Europe and there branches of the family are located in North Carolina and Tennessee. I am looking to reach out to relatives to say hello and find out more about where I came from. If you would like to exchange information or say hi please feel free to contact me.

Any idea where in Alsace-Lorraine your family is from? Many parts of Lorraine and all of the Bas-Rhin department of Alsace have their church books digitized and available on-line for free, but without a town it's like looking for a needle in the hay stack.
My Holt line comes through Virginia, into Kentucky, and so I don't know if I can be any help,since my Holt line is one of my side lines.  However if I can, I am more than glad to help.
Thanks. I will see if I can approach it from there.
I am looking for descendants of Michael Holt Sr. I, II, II. Possibly Col. Thomas Michael Holt, Edwin Michael Holt. My grandfather was John Mack Holt 1896-1980 from Oklahoma. I believe the family came from Virginia, N.C., Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma. His father died or left and he I believe he was raised by his grandmother in S.E. Oklahoma.
My Holt line came through North Carolina to Virgina and Tennesee then to Harlan Co Ky Joel ,James Holt Lines

From Micheal Holt of VA, NC and then the branch that moved to TN. I have visited the homestead in NC which has a wealth of information. Verbal history said we were from France but written history said Germany. Then I found the history of Alsace France and it made sense. it has has been years since I studied geneology but the Micheal Holt family was Lutherin so the records are actually very thorough.

Michael Holt, Sr., 1. II, III are my relatives. My family came over to Va., moved to N.C. and to Tennessee. I believe from there my descendants moved to Arkansas and then Oklahoma. My grandfather was John Mack Holt 1896-1980. My brother put me on to Michael. Unfortunately my grandfather and dad are both gone and my mom has dementia. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you know of any family that moved from Tennessee to Arkansas and on to Oklahoma? My grandfather was John Mack Holt 1896-1980 from Oklahoma.
HELLO.  I worked on a family tree today for Joseph S. Holt b 1874 from Cypress Inn, TN, who died in Ardmore OK.  He is my mother-in-law's grandfather.  There were also Joseph H. Holt married Eliza Huges.
My great grandpa's name was John Wilburn Holt. I wonder if that would be one of his brothers? I'm still looking through my information for Joseph Holt.
