HOLDER COAT OF ARMS
This Coat of Arms was officially recorded in ancient heraldic archives. Its design is the only one of its kind in existence. The written heraldic description is worded in the language developed. By the heralds as it appears in the records. The first use of a Coat of Arms was for identification on the battlefield. Many times deeds of Valor were recorded with a memorable symbol. The fact of the recording of a Coat of Arms means its bearers surname had its origin at least as far back as medieval times. As not everyone was granted a Coat of Arms, it also means the family name was singled out ages ago to be lifted from conformity and personal extinction. As many people of the same name are unrelated, we have not traced anyone's family tree to obtain the information in this report. It should be remembered, however, that many people may be direct descendants of a particular bloodline and be unknown to each other. Although bearers of this old and distinguished family name comprise a small fraction of the population, a surprising number of them have gained world-wide recognition. Space here permits only the listing of a scant few of its famous members, they include:
ROBERT la HOLDER (Old spelling Holdere) (fi. 1273) is registered in the "Hundred Rolls" as being from County Gloucestershire, as recorded in Bardsley's Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames.
WILLIAM HOLDER (1616-1698) Divine and author. He was well known for his books on teaching the deaf, i.e., An Experiment Concerning Deafness (1668)
JOSEPH BASSETT HOLDER (1824-1888) American physician and, naturalist.
On staff, American Museum of Natural History New York (from 1871).
He wrote "History of the American Puma." (1877)
CHARLES FREDRICK HOLDER (1851-1915) Naturalist. Descendant of one of the early Quakers of Massachusetts. He wrote both books and magazine articles on the science of zoology. His books include "Marvels of Animal Life" (1885)
As is evident, this family name is a very old and distinguished one. The above is but a mere hint of its illustrious history.

SIX BROTHERS' HOLDER

BY: Revealy Davis Holder

The name HOLDER is said to be very old, dating to the very origin of surnames in England, about the time of the Norman conquest in 1066.
Later the Holder's are said to have gone into Ireland and remained until the discovery of America. About 1700 some of them came into America. In spite of the age of the name, the number today wearing it is quite limited.. The name possibly came from German and some authority gives its German meaning as Holy. I want to think that its origin is associated. with some occupation or personal traits of the first to be known by that name.

The first account we have of our branch of the family dates from when six Holder brothers left Montgomery Co., Virginia for western migration. One landed at Vincennes, Knox Co., Indiana. One stopped about McMinnville, Warren Co., Tennessee, or possibly in White Co., Tennessee. One went to Alabama. One to Florida and. one to Southern Illinois.

According to family legend, there were six Holder brothers. However, the will of Davis Holder, probated Feb. 21,1785, names only five - William, Davis, John, Benjamin and Daniel. Possibly the sixth son was Jesse Holder, who, along with William Holder, was among 'soldiers now out in the country's service." This was in 1777. Jesse may already have been dead when Davis wrote his will in 1784. Another explanation is that possibly the sixth brother had already left and went, as legend tells us, to Montgomery County, Virginia and was given his part of his father's estate when he left. This did sometimes happen.

In Orange Co., NC records, William Holder is closely associated with David Holder (b. 1775) who was bondsman at Nancy Holder's marriage in 1833. This suggests a relationship between bride and bondsman.

Besides having sons named Chesley, both Gabriel Holder of Wayne Co., KY and William Holder of Orange Co., NC had children named William, Lydia and Elijah. Is this simply a coincidence?

Bill HolderNote: The only problem I have with the above information is no record of Issac or Laney in VA before 1782, and the associations with the Pittsylvania Co., VA Holdersí later. It is more logical that Issac was associated with Thomas, or was Thomas. I believe that Thomas probably came from Culpeper Co., VA, or Fauquier Co. VA, or a county nearby, and he was associated with Davis Holder in Culpeper Co., VA. Col. John Holder also came from the culpeper VA area, his father was Luke Holder.

Chapter II - Indian Rescue

When he was 20, he started west. When they got many miles from Virginia, the people he was traveling with decided they wanted his belongings. He was riding in front of the wagons, on a horse and one of the three other men shot him from the saddle with a rifle. The three men took his wagon, team and supplies and left him for dead. The slug failed to hit a vital spot, so several days later, he regained his sences to find himself on a pile of skins in an Indian village.

The Indians were very friendly and they kept him in the village and doctored him. By the time he was completely recovered, he had become accustomed to their way of life and decided to live with them. He lived there several months, hunting, fishing and living as an Indian in the forests of eastern Tennessee.

He did not attempt to find his would be assassins, nor travel on to Western Tennessee. He was content here with the Indians, until one day while slipping thru the woods hunting deer, he heard a shot from a rifle. He knew that white people were near. He left his Indian friends to find the white people.
Chapter III - On to Tennessee

He found them, and explained his misfortune. They agreed to let him go on west with them, if he would work for whatever he ate. When night camp was made, he found that there was a very beautiful girl in one of the wagons. They became aquatinted as they traveled west and by the time they reached the western part of Tennessee, they were taking walks together after camp was made.

The journey finally ended, and they settled in the rich river bottom. Not long after they arrived here, they were married. They moved into a log cabin, and started a long and full of adventurous life of a pioneer Mother and Father.

Approx. 1790, the first- born was a son, Laney (Isaac) Holder . Probably his father's name was Delaney (Isaac) too, because in those days, one of the boys were named for the father. This boy's Grandfather was Isaac.

Chapter IV - Revolutionary War

Soon after Laney was born, his Father was called away to fight for the independence of the colonies. He never returned. His wife ? was so broken hearted, she lived only a few months. Laney was only 4 years old when his Mother died. He was raised by his Mother's family.
Chapter V - War of 1812

When he was about twenty years old, he married, and moved to Southern Tennessee, where he lived when the War of 1812 broke out. He joined the U. S. Army and was in Jackson's Army in the Battle of New Orleans. Many of General Jackson's men were Tennessee and Kentucky back-woodsmen who could shoot a squirrel in the top of the highest tree.

The British commander, Sir Edward Pakenham, was a brother-in-law of the Duke of Wellington, and his force was made up of veteran soldiers who had fought against Napoleon's armies. He looked down on the American troops and instead of marching around them, which he could easily have done, decided to capture them. The British fought bravely, but the marksmanship of the backwoods riflemen was too much for them, and within less than half an hour, the British retreated, leaving 2,600 dead or wounded. Among these killed was their commander, Pakenham.

The Americans lost only 8 killed and 13 wounded. It was sad to think that all this sacrifice of life was unnecessary. On Christmas Eve, two weeks before the Battle of New Orleans had taken place, a treaty of peace had been signed by the English and American commanders. It was signed in Ghent, in the Netherlands, but there was no ocean telegraph, and no steamship had yet crossed the ocean, so it was many days after the battle that the news was received in this country. At the end of the War of 1812, there were 16 states, and six more were admitted in less than 10 years.
 
 

Chapter VI - Indian Massacre

When Laney returned home after the war, he found that his wife, along with the whole neighborhood had been killed by the Creek Indians. They were not the only ones killed. Hundreds of families were murdered in an outburst of hostility.

When Andrew Jackson heard about this, he gathered together an army of fathers, sons, husbands and brothers of those who had been killed and went after the Indians. The almost insane army of men found and slaughtered several hundred of the Creek Indians and ran the others into Florida where they found and captured the Chief and hanged him. Florida was Spanish territory at this time, and General Jackson came near to drawing this nation into another war by going into this territory after the Indians. Spain however, was not anxious to get mixed up in any war with there Indian fighters.

Laney Holder returned to his farm and started to work once again. He lived here several years and married again. He lived in Perry County, Tennessee. He had 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls . One of the boys was my Great Grand- father Isaac Holder.. keeping the name that his Grandfather had brought from Ireland. Laney lived to be a very old man.

Chapter VIII - The Last Isaac

Isaac Holder was very much like his Grandfather. He was over 6 feet tall, very dark skinned with black eyes and hair.

He was carefree and reckless. He would pick a fight just for the fun of fighting, and it was told that he never was whipped...maybe he never ran onto the right man. Once he was returning home from one of his sprees, he came to a house where a girl lived who wanted to get married to her husband to be, but in those days, preachers were few and far between, so Isaac told them he was a preacher and he performed the ceremony, ate the wedding feast, and got two dollars for his work and went happily on his way. However, as he grew older, he put away his foolish deeds.

He finally married Sarah ? , and his first child was born..a girl , Jenny Holder (married Jim Baker) (She is the one who gave Jack this information on the family in 1937). Two years later a son was born. His name was John Holder. He never married and lived to be 70. Another daughter was born named ________ , then a son which was named Laney Clinton . He is my Grandfather.

My Great Grandfather didnít name any of his sons Isaac, so the name stopped with him for there hasnít been another Holder named Isaac since .
Chapter IX - Civil War

When the Civil War broke out in 1861, Isaac Holder was a middle aged man . This however did not keep him from joining the Southern Army . He stayed gone 4 years until the war was over in 1865, then came back to his family and stayed until 1870.

Also Part of the verbal story of our family is that my ggrandfather Isaac Laney ( son of Laney of Perry Co.) and his brother John were both in the Civil War ( in Nathan Bedford Forest's command from all indications).
Sometime after the end of the War, a group of men came riding into John's front yard, dismounted and dragged John from the house and shot him dead. I have found no official records to substantiate this story. He lived in
Perry Co. at the time.

LANEY HOLDER
Chapter X - Gone to Texas

His old restless spirit showed again, He loaded what he could on 2 wagons, and sold the remainder of his property and started west for Texas with some of his neighbors. It took them several weeks to make the trip.

They had started for the Brazos River Valley, but stopped 2 miles north of Garner in the dry creek bottom. It looked good enough. They lived here several years, then moved 3 miles west of Garner on the bank of Rock Creek, the land they worked for 40 years. It is now covered by the Mineral Wells Lake.

Chapter XI - Visiting Tennessee

My Great Grandfather Isaac made a trip back to see his Mother and Father who were very old.
On the way back, he got caught in a cold shower of rain when he was almost home..at Ft. Worth, Texas. He took cold and died a few days later in his home from pneumonia. Both his parents out lived him.

Grandfather Clinton Holder was only a young man when his father died.

Chapter XII - Another Family Starts

When he was 23 years old, he married Minerva Ester Staggs who was born 2 miles south of Weatherford, Tex. Her family moved to Garner when she was 10 years old. She married when she was 16. She thinks girls marry too young these days.

My Grandfather and Grandmother Holder had l0 children, 5 girls and 5 boys . My Grandfather died March 22,1933 . A true friend to everyone who knew him.
My Mother, Martha was the 6th. child of this large family and is the best one in all the world.

Isaac Holder who came from Ireland was my Great Great Great Great Grandfather, born Approx 1743

THOMAS HOLDER inois) received from the Sullivan
FORT HOLDER, SULLIVAN CO. INDIANA

Fort Holder, Indiana (not Illinois) received from the Sullivan County Historical Society:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Forts of the Lower Wabash 1803-1812 Indiana Territory

(Busseron Cr."Bossero" Settlement - south of Indian Boundary, north of Vincennes):

I. 1803 = Ft. Ledgerwood

II. 1805 = Ft. Haddon

III. 1807 = Ft. Holder

III. FORT HOLDER, 1807, Haddon Township, Survey No. 16. Built by Thomas Holder Sr. Drive west of Carlisle and US 41 on SR 58 to the Carlisle-Odd Fellows Cemetery... If you look carefully, you can find the portion containing the Holder Cemetery.

THOMAS HOLDER SR. accompanied by his wife and several children came from Virginia to the Indiana Territory in 1806. He stopped first at the fort at Vincennes where another child was born. He may have built the first log cabin that was NOT a blockhouse in late 1806 or 1807; but before the close of 1807 it had been converted or the blockhouse fort was built. The settlers in the area felt much more secure with the knowledge that there were three forts now for their protection. Before and after the War of 1812, the Holders were known for their hogs....

At this period in history it was a full day's journey to travel to Vincennes for supplies... Then it was another day for the return journey. The trip meant leaving the settler's family unprotected from burning by the Indians. THOMAS HOLDER bought a new wagon that would hold a large amount of supplies. This he took to Vincennes where he purchased a quantity not only for his own use but for sale to others. Thus THOMAS HOLDER became the first merchant in the area.

Grandson AARON HOLDER, over a hundred years ago, built what is the front section of the large two-story house...on the north side of SR 58 W of US 41 and Carlisle. Known currently as the "Melcho" house, it was built with huge squared logs. Aaron carved his name on one of the logs...discovered during remodeling some years ago.

Many of the young Holder children of the second and third generation in the township died of fever caused by low ground or the water that was used for drinking. Still Holder descendants live on in the U.S. In Haddon and Gill township his descendants through Aaron's daughter, Cordelia, are Rachel Christy, Pat Wheeler, and Bill and Floyd Willis.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE from M.H.: Thomas Holder was associated with the Ledgerwoods and McCouns in Virginia and then in Indiana. Sullivan Co. IN was formed from Knox County. It is 13 miles from Terre Haute, 22 miles from Vincennes, and 75 miles from Evansville. Anybody know of the Holders in this area??? Or any who stopped briefly and moved on?
