The Holloway and Higgins families moved to Texas from Tennessee early in the 20th Century. They settled around Corsicana, Texas.


There is no date on this picture, but from the dresses, I'd say it was before 1920. From left to right in front are Jennie Higgins Cornelison(sp?), Mary Freedonia Candice Higgins Holloway, "Aunt Babe" Higgins Millerman, and Benton Higgins. The back row is Tom Holloway, Haden Holloway, John Millerman, and Porter P. Holloway.


Thomas Woodfin Holloway and a grandson who would not sit still. It may be Philip Gibson or Eugene Holloway.

Alice Virginia Holloway married George Holloman. She was a school teacher and never had any children of her own. They called her Aunt Al.

Aunt Al was quite a beauty and very fashionable. Her niece Merle says that she died her hair coal black all her life. She was also know for ample use of creams and potions to keep her skin young.

Mary Freedonia Candice Higgins Holloway and a grandson. It may be Philip or Edgar.

The back of this picture says "How do yo like the looks of these 3 guys - made during the snow." From the clothing, I'd guess in the 1930's or early 40's.
