Mr. Hollinger's life was one of rare usefulness as he was one of the ablest ministers of his day, devoting much of his time to the work of the ministry. No sacrifice was ever too great for him if the interest of the church appeared. During the early years of his life he was a successful farmer, but the last twenty-eight years of life were devoted entirely to the work of the church that he loved so well. He enjoyed the confidence of the community almost in its entirety, and his judgement and integrity were rarely questioned or doubted.
