I am searching for my desendants on the Holsonback. My Grandmother was Effie Odessa Holsonback, the daughter of M. W. Holsonback (Matt). He had 12 children, 6 of them died young and believed to be buried in the Curtis Cemetery. This information comes out of the family bible.
M. W. Holsonback (Matt)B:2/23/1880
D:10/8/1967 (toumbstone says B:1877)
Wife: Dollie Holsonback (?)B:7/1/1878 D:9/22/1946
I believe James J. & Minerva are his Parents. My Grandmother said that they lived in the basement of Winston County Court House and was a deputy sheriff at one time. He has a 1/2 brother James Newton which was a U.S. Mashall. I also have a newspaper cliping that came out of my grandmothers bible showing a golden wedding anniversary of Mr. & Mrs. A. B. Holsonback of Kennedy, AL and it was at the home of their daughter A. G. Junkin. Other children there was Mrs. Howard Hydrick of Millport, AL
Matt Holsonback also had a twin brother that they called Sherm (Sherman). Where abouts is unknown could be in the Sand Mt. area this is all we know of the Holsonback Family at this time.
