Samaria was born in 1795 to John Stanley and Catherine Elizabeth (her last name is not known at this time). Martindale-730 11:54, 29 January 2018 (EST)

She married Pleasant Holloway on 12 Sep 1821 in Union County, Indiana. [1]

Samaria was living in Randolph County, Indiana with Pleasant and their children at the time of the 1850 US Federal Census[2] She was 55 years old at the time. Below is a list of people in the household:

Susannah Holloway, 21
Hannah Holloway, 17

Samaria and Pleasant are seen in the 1860 US Federal Census living alone, both 65 years old in Indiana. [3]

Research Notes

Samaria also had the name "Elizabeth" and "Permelia" in her name. I am unsure if one or the other was a nickname, middle name, or just part of her legal name in general.
