Jephtha Y. HOLLINGSWORTH
Mary B. GORDON
Husband:  Jephthah / Jephtha / Jeptha Y. HOLLINGSWORTH
Birth:  Apr 1791, Greenville Dist., SC
Death said to be:  1870, Leavenworth Co., KS
Death based on censuses:  1870-80, probably in Prairie Twp., Wyandotte Co., KS
Disposition said to be:  buried White Church Cemetery, White Church, Wyandotte Co., KS
Father:  Jephtha HOLLINGSWORTH
Mother:  Nancy Anne GORDON

Jeptha, Jephtha, Jephath, and Jepha are almost certainly misspellings of scriptural name, "Jephthah" (Judg. 11:1).
There are some "Young" HOLLINGSWORTHs about, so there is a high probability that Jeptha's middle initial stands for "Young," which probably means there is a YOUNG in his ancestry.
