Hello Norma

On Family search I pick up a Esom Hollifield  b.1784 d.1875 Chester County, SC, USA (married to Elizabeth Wagers).  Son of William J Hollifield b.1745 d.1835 married to an unknown Austin.  Other records on ancestory.com show her as Valentine(? first name) Austin 1725-1790 the daughter of John Austin and Hannah Love. This information is common to many records although I have not located an actual birth certifiate for either Esom or William there are many Census records which seem to tie the two together

Thank you for your help. I appreciate it.. I am trying to tie William or his ancestor to the Revolution war. Who was William's father. There is a William Holefied served in the Revolution war and he was a Lt . coule these 2 williams be the same person.

I have  thought maybe Daniel Hollifield was his father or maybe William. I just can't connect anything
