I've been searching for Rev. Wm Holifield's parents for many years and have not been able to find genealogical proof or any reference to them. I have one clue (not proof) that his father's name might be William. I'm not even sure if S.C. is correct because some records state he was born N.C. I know he served in the War of 1812, but I don't have an actual copy of his record, only a transcription. Do you a copy of his service record? Thanks for your post.
