Benjamin Benton Hollingsworth was born abt 1785 in Randolph Co, North Carolina, the son of Jacob Hollingsworth & wife Mary Brooks, who had moved to North Carolina about 1772, according to Guilford, NC deed records.. He died in Benton Co, Alabama, August 18, 1844. He is buried in Benton Co, Alabama, but I have not located his grave as yet.
Benjamin Hollingsworth was a Justice of the Peace in Franklin Co., Georgia Aug. 27, 1810-Jan. 25, 1813 ( George State Archives, J. P. Records, 1799-1812 P 656 & J. P. records 1813-1817 P 163)
His will was proved in Alabama, having been written at his home in Walnut Springs, Alabama, just prior to going on a trip, May 1st, 1841. His estate was not divided until after his wife's death in Rusk Co., Texas in 1858.
Benjamin married Joicey Jones, daughter of James & Mary "Polly" Jones, in Franklin Co, Georgia on September 3, 1809; Marriage performed by his brother Thomas Hollingsworth, JP. The Hollingsworth family were neighbors to the William Sparks family, and many years later Benjamin Hollingsworth's granddaughter, Mary Ann Allen, married Andrew Jackson Sparks, the grandson of William Sparks, in Nacogdoches, Texas in 1848.
The Hollingsworth family moved to Franklin Co, Tennessee prior to 1816, where they remained until about 1835, he being the first Postmaster of Pelham, (which was in Franklin Co, until 1836 when Coffee Co. was created), then removed to Benton Co., now Calhoun Co., Alabama.
Their son Stephen P Hollingsworth, and their daughter Acenith Louisa, who had married Dr. Elijah Allen in Tennessee, came to Texas bet. Mar, 1836 and Oct. 1837. After Benjamin Hollingsworth's death in 1844, Stephen P. Hollingsworth went back to Alabama, where he married Martha A. Elston, in Benton Co, in 1845, and removed the other family members to Texas, settling in Rusk County, in Dec.,1845, leaving behind only one nephew, Thomas, the son of his deceased brother Wiley S. B. Hollingsworth.
Joicey Jones Hollingsworth was born Feb. 14, 1791 in Franklin Co., Georgia and died in Rusk Co., Texas on August 6, 1858. She is buried in Rusk Co. on the Spring Place. Her marker is about 5 ft high. Marker reads:
"Sacred to the Memory of Joicey Hollingsworth"
Born Feb. 14, 1791 Died Aug. 6, 1858
"Friend after friend departs
Who has not lost a friend
There is no union here of hearts
That finds not here an end
Were this frail world our final rest
Living or dying none were blest."
Joicey Jones Hollingsworth's brother Stephen Jones, later came to Rusk Co., and also a sister, Salina Jones Box, Widow of George Box, who had died in Benton Co, Alabama in 1840. Benjamin Hollingsworth was named as Co-Exr. of his brother-in-law's estate.

TENNESSEE BAPTIST, June 15, 1861, p. 4, c. 3
Son of S. P. and M. A. Hollingsworth, aged 10 years, 1 month and 9 days, departed this life at this place at 20 minutes past six o'clock, P.M. on the 21st last. He was born in Rusk county, Texas, and a more dutiful, kind, loving child never lived. His disease was in his head, and seemed to baffle the skill of all medical aid. He was sick about six weeks, and for the last ten days his suffering was intense, yet he bore it without a murmur. His death has created a vacuum that never can be filled in the hearts of his parents, and the sweet notes of his voice are never again to be heard around the fireside. But we have the consolation to believe that that melody which was peculiarly his, is resounding amidst the angels who surround the throne of our blessed Jesus.
S. P. H.
We sincerely tender our kindest regards to those citizens of Winchester, and particularly the ladies, for their kind services and attention during the sickness and death of our dear child.
S. P. Hollingsworth,
M. A. Hollingsworth.

HANDBOOK OF TEXAS
SIXTH WARD, HOUSTON. The Sixth Ward, a late nineteenth
century Houston political subdivision, was bounded by Washington
Avenue and Union Street on the north, Houston Street on the east,
Capitol Street (north Memorial Way) on the south, and Glenwood
Cemetery on the west. With Houston's largest concentration of
Victorian and early twentieth century bungalow houses, the district is
considered by some the "oldest intact neighborhood in the city."
Sabine Street, which runs through the community, retains its original
brick paving. The Sixth Ward was originally part of the two-league
John Austin grant, made in 1824. S. P. Hollingsworth surveyed it
into large narrow tracts that ran northward from Buffalo Bayou in
1838, but Houston mayor William R. Baker who acquired
property in the area as early as 1839 and by 1858 owned or held
mortgages on the majority of the district, is considered the man most
responsible for the look of the area today. Baker filed a final plat in 1881,etc.

The following has been taken from the History of the
Community of Hayden or "Cow Prairie" in Van Zandt Co, Texas-
"Charlie and Hannah Hayden owned a farm in the Cow Prairie community. C. A. Hayden, born 10 Mar 1817, and died 19 Jan 1905, and his wife, H. B. Hayden, born 18 Apr 1822, died 13 Jan 1883, are buried in the White Rose Cemetery in Wills Point. Mr. and Mrs. Hayden owned a farm in the Cow Prairie community and undoubtedly were much admired by Dr. E. G. Tynes, the first postmaster, for their name was written in for the proposed post office on the application he signed.
The first Cow Prairie School was a log cabin located about a mile west of the present day location of the Hayden Baptist Church. In Van Zandt County Scholastic Record for the Term 1888-1889, the Cow Prairie School is listed as number 17., etc etc"
Charlie and Hannah Hayden were very concerned about the building of a new church and decided to work toward this goal. Mrs. Hayden rode a horse over all the community to solicit money for this building of their dreams. Because of their love and support the people gave their name to the church. This was six months after the post office was discontinued. One Sunday in Jan, 1904, before Rev. R. M. Wilson delivered his sermon, the church body decided to dedicate the new church the third Sunday in March. etc etc"
On 24 Aug 1895, James R. and Sarah M. Box deeded two acres of land to the school and a frame, two-story building was erected east of where the church is now, at the crossroads. The upper floor of this building was used as the meeting place of the Woodsman Lodge.
In Jan, 1900, the members of the Baptist Church, then at Myrtle Springs, voted to change their meeting place to the Cow Prairie School House.
Sarah M. Box deeded 1.3 acres of land on 18 Mar 1904, for the purpose of building a church

Handbook of Texas
OIL SPRINGS: Nacogdoches County, Texas
. Oil Springs is on Farm Road 226 thirteen miles east of Nacogdoches in
southeastern Nacogdoches County. Indians used oil seepage in the area for medicinal purposes. As early
as 1790 Spanish and Anglo settlers learned the Indians' use of the oil, and also applied it to their animals as a salve and used it to grease their axles and wheels.
In late 1859, Lyne Taliaferro Barret perhaps
inspired by Edwin Drake's 1859 discovery of oil in Pennsylvania, leased land at Oil Springs and began to drill.
On December 21, 1865, Barret, of Melrose, along with partners
Benjamin P. Hollingsworth, Charles A. Hamilton, John T. Flint, and John B.
Earle organized the Melrose Petroleum Oil Company. Three drilling contracts had already been made for the
benefit of the company, including another one with Skillern heirs on October 9, 1865. Drilling began during
the summer of 1866 and resulted in the first producing oil well in the state, which came in at a depth of 106
feet by September 12, 1866. The well, located at Oil Springs, produced about ten barrels a day. Samples
were forwarded to the Department of Emigration in New York, which pronounced the oil
"superior in all its properties."
On the advice of oilmen in Shreveport, Barret went to New York and Pennsylvania to
examine equipment before purchase. There he met John F. Carll, a civil engineer, and on March 1, 1867,
Barret and others made financial obligations to Carll, who had agreed to run tests and assist in development of
the property. According to Barret, Carll's financial backer, Brown Brothers of Titusville, Pennsylvania, wrote
on the day of the test that the low price of oil and the political unrest caused by Reconstruction made the
development of the field unfeasible. Impatient investors wanted to sell their interest in the company but turned
down Barret's offers of land and demanded cash. Despite encouragement by Carll in 1868, when oil prices
went up again, the field was never developed. Barret suffered extensive financial loss and returned to the
mercantile business in Melrose. Later he saw the field developed with an oil boom in 1887 at what became
known as Oil City.

TEXANS WHO WORE THE GRAY by Sid S. Johnson, p. 134 O. N. HOLLINGSWORTH. "Orlando N. Hollingsworth was among the bright young men that enlisted from Rusk county, Texas, in Capt. R. H. Cumby's Co. B, Third Texas Cavalry, that went to the front early in 1861, and first saw the brunt edges of war at the battle of Oak Hills. He was born in Calhoun county, Ala., April 5, 1836. Soon after his birth his father died and in 1845 with his mother he moved to Texas. His early education was founded in the common schools of the county, and in 1859 he was graduated from the University of Virginia with honor. On account of his executive ability he was appointed adjutant of the Third Texas Cavalry. When the assault was made on Corinth, in 1862, he was so badly wounded that he was permanently disabled from service the balance of the war. Coronal Institute, located at San Marcos, was founded by him in 1864-6, and was long presided over by him. He was an educator of prominence and advanced thought, and while holding this position he was elected superintendent of public instruction and later appointed secretary of the board of education. He held other positions of trust and was greatly esteemed for his educational and executive ability. A man of warm impulse, having confidence in his friends, he was early led to make mistakes by placing too much confidence in those who surrounded him as his patrons and followers. I have no knowledge of his being alive or dead, but he was a warm-hearted, generous man, and was ever ready with his means and influence to advance the interest of a friend. He was a good and pure man. "

summary: This document is a copy of the proceedings and resolutions of a committee of citizens in Benton County, Alabama, dated June 6, 1836. The committee was organized as a result of alleged persistent threats by Creek Indians in the area around Terrapin Creek, Alexandria, and White Plains, Alabama. They deliberated on proper means of defense and here transmit their resolutions to Clement C. Clay, Governor of Alabama (1835-1837). In addition to the Creeks, the committee reports that certain "disaffected" Cherokees are dwelling in the vicinity, having left Georgia after the ratification of the New Echota Treaty (signed December 1835). The proceedings are signed by William Wood, chairman of the committee, as well as several others.

RUSK COUNTY, TEXAS PROBATE COURT RECORDS
WILL OF BENJAMIN BENTON HOLLINGSWORTH
STATE OF ALABAMA, at home in Walnut Springs, 1st May, 1841. I, BENTON HOLLINGSWORTH, having a long journey in view and expect to start on the second instant, feel it is my right to make, constitute, and ordain this my last Will and Testament, being conscious that I must go the way of all the earth and I feel to say Amen, believing in the immortality of the soul, and that God governs all things in heaven and earth after the counsel of his own will; And believing it is my province to dispose of my earthly goods as I may think right. I therefore leave all my earthly affairs in the hands and power of my wife, Joicy Hollingsworth, and I do not require her by any means to give security.
1ST, I request her to pay all my debts.
2ND, to see that Benjamin, Benton, and Orlando, out of my effects, receive as much education as any of our children have had; then, if there is anything to be divided, let it be done in the following manner:
Acenith and Dr. Allen have had a full share of our estate. Stephen, and Wiley, in his lifetime, both have had about seven hundred dollars apiece- that is what I have paid for them. Now, when Mary A. Kelley, Hannah Belzora, Benjamin, Benton & Orlando shall have received the amount of seven hundred dollars a share, then the balance is to be equally divided between Stephen, Mary, Belzora, Benjamin, Benton, Orlando, and to my grandson, Thomas Hollingsworth, son of Wiley Hollingsworth, and in case of his death before he becomes of age, his portion, if any, to Benjamin, Benton and Orlando.
I know that Acenith Allen has had more than her proportionable part, to wit: One Negro girl and seven hundred dollars in land, one horse, and bridle, and saddle, two cows, etc; but I wish it to be distinctly understood that the younger children are not to be chargeable with their schooling and raising. I further declare and will that my wife is sole executrix and is to remain undisturbed after the debts are paid, in full possession of all my estate so long as she may live. Only what part she may think proper to give to each legatee.
In Witness with my own hand, I have hereunto set my name and seal the day and year above written.
Signed: Benjamin Hollingsworth (Seal)
