About George Holliday

George was trained in Carpentry by his father and was apprenticed to him. In the 1860's George left home and in the 1861 census is found lodging in a village not too far from Warboys. I don't know whether or not he moved north with the rest of his family but he is next found in Lancashire where he meets and marries his first wife, Elizabeth Williams a widow, maiden name Dean. They married on 8 May 1865 in the Parish Church of Prescot, Lancashire, England. Elizabeth was 8 years older than George and on marriage he is listed as a Joiner.

From his g.g.grandson I have learned that George was an Episcopalian and a very talented carpenter who carved some fine wooden pews for a local church. He married 3 times. (1) Elizabeth Williams, who is believed to have died shortly after landing in New York; (2) Martha and finally Mary Todd.
