Notes on children from Joni Hollingsworth Sanders e-mail 06/15/2004

Harden, William, 1844-1936.  A History of Savannah and South Georgia.  Chicago:   Lewis Pub. Co., 1913.  2 v. 1087 pages. (pages 852-853)

Vol. II History of Savannah and South Georgia

    John Cullen Hollingsworth.  An able representative of the prosperous business men of Dawson, John Cullen Hollingsworth, a hardware merchant, holds an acknowledged position of prominence among the progressive and public-spirited men of the city and county as a citizen faithfully performing duties imposed upon him in official capacities.  He was born and reared in Barbour County, Alabama, of old Virginia ancestry, being a son of James Hollis Hollingsworth.

      His paternal grandparents migrated from their native state, Virginia, to Georgia early in the nineteenth century, and for six years lived in the vicinity of Americus, Sumter County, making the removal with teams.  White settlers were then few and far between, and the dense forests were apparently filled with all kinds of wild animals and game.

      Not pleased with their prospects in Georgia, they removed with their family to Alabama, becoming pioneer settlers of Barbour County, where they established a permanent home.

      Born in Virginia, in 1832, James Hollis Hollingsworth was but three years old when his parents made the overland journey to Georgia, and but nine years of age when they migrated to Barbour County, Alabama, where he began as soon as strong enough to assist in clearing a homestead.  At the breaking out of the war between the states, he enlisted in an Alabama regiment, and with the Confederate forces went to Virginia.  He subsequently fought bravely in many of the noted battles of the war, including the battles at Fredericksburg and Gettysburg, and the different ones around Richmond and Petersburg, continuing in active service throughout the conflict, returning home after the final surrender.  His father having died while he was an infant, the care of his mother and sister fell upon him at an early age.  He rented a mule and a piece of land, and though he had a late start that year, he was blessed with a good crop, which he disposed of at a high price.  After renting a few years, he bought a plantation in the northwest section of Barbour county, near Mount Andrew, on the plantation standing the log cabin in which his son, John Cullen, was born.  The little cabin, with a few other rude log buildings, and a few cleared acres, constituted all of the improvements upon the place.  He possessed good judgment and excellent executive ability, and with thrift and industry, both indoors and out, he and his family prospered, and in due course of time were installed in a substantial frame house.  He also erected good barns and sheds for the shelter of his stock and machinery, and put up tenement houses.  There he lived contented and happy until his death.

      The maiden name of the wife of James Hollis Hollingsworth was Amanda Currington.  She was a native of South Carolina.  Surviving her husband, she now makes her home with her children: of whom she has five, all sons, as follows:  George, John Cullen, James, Robert, and Edgar.

      Receiving a good common school education in his youth, John Cullen Hollingsworth, at the age of seventeen, began life for himself as a teacher, and for four years taught school.  Changing his occupation, he was a clerk in a general store at Clayton, Barbour County, Alabama, until December, 1896.  In January, 1897, Mr. Hollingsworth embarked in the mercantile business in Dawson, Georgia, with H. A. Petty, under the firm name of Petty and Hollingsworth, opening the first hardware store in the place, and for eight years carrying on a thriving business under that name.  In 1905 the Hollingsworth Hardware Company was formed, with Mr. Hollingsworth as president of the corporation.  Another store was purchased, the stock of the two establishments was consolidated, and this enterprising company now carries on an extensive and lucrative business, dealing in shelf hardware of every description, cutlery, kitchen furnishing goods, and farm implements, the firm aiming to anticipate as far as possible the wants and needs of their numerous patrons.

      Mr. Hollingsworth married, August 10, 1905, Lillie Christie, who was born in Dawson, Georgia, a daughter of Samuel R. and Ella (Stevens) Christie.  Three children have blessed the union of Mr. and Mrs. Hollingsworth, namely: Virginia, Ella May, and John Christie.  Religiously Mr. Hollingsworth is an active member of the Baptist church, and superintendent of its Sunday school and Mrs. Hollingsworth belongs to the Methodist Episcopal church.  Fraternally Mr. Hollingsworth is a member of P. T. Schley Lodge, No. 229, Free and Accepted Masons, and of Lawrence chapter, Royal Arch Masons.  He is now serving the city as a member of its common council and is chairman of the board of county commissioners.
