About John Daniel Holladay, Sr.

Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

"...John Holladay (1798-1861) is a founder and namesake of the settlement of Holladay's Burg, Utah which became Holladay, Utah. He was an early pioneer in the western US in Colorado, Utah, and California. He is sometimes erroneously referred to as John Daniel Holladay which was his eldest son's name..."

"...John Holladay was born March 10, 1798, in Camden District, Kershaw County, South Carolina. A few descendants insist on calling him John Daniel though published historical accounts agree his given name was John not John Daniel. John Holladay's 1861 obituary in the Deseret News calls him John Holladay as does his original headstone now in Santaquin cemetery. John had a son named John Daniel whose own son was John Daniel Jr. who was born in San Bernardino in 1851 and died in Arizona. John Holladay married Catherine Beasley Higgins in South Carolina in 1822. They had 10 children, 9 of whom survived early childhood..."

"...In 1844, in Alabama, John Holladay joined the LDS Church as his son John Daniel may have already done. In the spring of 1846, at the urging of the Church, he joined the so called Mississippi Saints migration west under the leadership of John Brown. He left Alabama with his wife and eight of his nine living children and their respective families. Their expected destination was California. The “Mississippi” party was supposed to meet the main Mormon migration party led by Brigham Young on the road west..."

"...In Utah, John eventually settled his family and others of his group on Spring Creek, a tributary of Little Cottonwood Creek at a place which was called Holladay’s Burg after him and which became the present-day town of Holladay, Utah..."

"...In 1851, the Holladay family joined Amasa Lyman’s LDS Church sanctioned colonization of Rancho San Bernardino, present-day San Bernardino, CA. The family returned to Utah in 1857 after Brigham Young dictated the demise of the San Bernardino colony which he apparently considered a threat to the Utah project. The colonists had secured a mortgage collectively to purchase the Rancho San Bernardino. They were forced to default when it was almost paid off suffering heavy economic loss..."

"...Back in Utah, John settled first at Beaver, Utah then at Holladay Springs, Utah near present day Santaquin, Utah where he remained until his death on December 31, 1861..."
