Autosomal DNA testing of descendants of Mary Holder has so far led to matches of descendants of all couples usually theorized to be Mary's parents. Segment triangulation is needed to begin to narrow down a connection.

Are you certain that she was born in Surry County NC, but was the daughter of Jesse Holder of Bertie County NC? Those two counties are very far apart, and I know of no evidence that Jesse ever moved to Surry County. I think either Mary's birthplace must be wrong, or that she's linked to the wrong parents.

Jesse Holder and Mary Langston did have a daughter named Mary, but they appear to have been living in Laurens District SC at the time of her birth.

Holder-2227 and Holder-521 appear to represent the same person because: These record both have great information about the same person. Let's get them merged.
