I don't have any other information other than who Alexander married. I cannot find parents or siblings. It's almost like they are ghosts. lol
Thanks - with the profile link - I'll now have a search and see what I can find.

Yikes it is confusing :)

Alexander M Holton born 15 April 1824 died 26 Aug 1888 married Lou Ann Pearse

Alexander H Holton born 17 September 1824 Kentucky married Clarissa

Alexander Michael listed – father Joshua Holton


And there is an Alexander buried in Clermont County Ohio that was married to Clarissa. my ancestors.

Both Alexanders were born the same year, and died the same year.

Then I find this:   
William Denham
+Ann Drummond
i. Clarissa 1829-1892
+Alexander Michael Holton 1824-1888
8 children one being my gg grandfather William H. Holton.I have heard; "that William's father was Obediah Denham founder of Bethel, Ohio. He is supposed to be buried there. His wife was Mary Ball. Obed's parents were James Denham from England and Abigaile Mason from Mass."

I have the death certificate for William stating that his parents were Michael Holton and Clarice Dunham(Denham).

His tombstone has an H not an M on it. I am so confused it isn't funny. 


Good evening. My name is Edward H. Holton. I live in Douglas, AZ. Alexander M. Holton was my great great grandfather. I am doing the Holton family geniology and have also run into a blank wall on the Holton side of the family after Alexander Holton. As near as I can tell, his wife was Clarissa Bartlet Denham and the Holton Family line takes off like a rocket from there.
