FELIX, GAINES, HARVEY, HOLDERBY, MALCOM -
Hi; My 4Great Grandmother Betsy FELIX was born in 1774 in VA, an English colony, 5years later her brother Samuel FELIX was born in 1779, in VA, an American State. Betsy and Samuel's father, 5Great Grandfather FELIX, may have been a Revolutionary soldier.? Don't know what happened to him, or where he came from or who his wife was?? Betsy married a Mr. Harvey, had Nacy Jane Harvey, who married Nathaniel Holderby in White Co, IL, where Betsy and her brother Samuel FELIX were living in 1850. Nathaniel and Nancy had a daughter Tabitha who married John Gaines and they had Hilliard, who married Etna Malcom, who gave birth to Paul Gaines, my Dad, in Carmi, IL in 1898. I AM looking for pieces to the puzzle.
