The 1850 Census lists all of the children except the eldest Mary Isabella, and Nancy Ann. Martha is listed as attending school. Ann, age 6, is listed but this could be Sarah.
Three sons fought in the Civil War. John B. was a Lt., and James P. and George W. were privates in Company F, North Carolina 26th Regiment.

John Burton died on the first day of the Battle at Gettysburg, at the age of 28.

George W., previously wounded at Malvern Hill, was wounded at Gettysburg the same day his brother died; was captured at Hatch Run Apr 2, 1965 and held prisoner for three months in Hart's Island NY, and released Jun 18, 1865; he was called "Big Johnny Reb" by Union troops" since he was "tall (6'4") and fat". He was elected colonel of the Caldwell Co. militia after the war.

James was 6'2", enlisted in Mar 1862, and died of disease at Richmond.
Robert Holloway was a farmer. His property was valued at $600 at death.
He was also an active Methodist layman, and a Magistrate in Patterson Twp (Population 150) in 1880.
