Hollister Bible Pages
These pages were separated from the Bible, so the
date of the Bible is unknown. They appear to be
late 19th century.
There is a lot more detail in this record than is normally seen.
This family really travelled around a LOT. The daughter
Zilpha died around noon on Oct. 19th in Crystal Falls,
Michigan, and was buried in Tomah Wisconsin -- with
services, mind you -- on Oct. 22nd. Granted, Crystal Falls
is in Michigan's UP, but that still had to be 75-100 miles
per day, in 1890.
Solomon C. Hollister appears in PA in the 1910, 20 and 30
censuses. He appears to have died in July 1982, in Ithaca,
Tomkins County, New York, according to the Social Security
death index. Ada died in the same town in 1993 (making her
nearly 100 years old). His wife, Ada, and three children, John
(b.abt. 1921), Mary (b. abt. 1923) and David G. (b. abt. 1926)
appear with him in the Delaware County, PA, 1930 census.
