Biological Father:  Seth HOLT
Biological Mother:  Abigail "Nabby" CHENEY
Adoptive Father:  Daniel GALUSHA
Marriage:  15 Jun 1833, Armstrong Co., PA
Wife:  (Eliza) Jane HERRINGTON
Birth:  1806/7, PA
Other Spouse:  m1. Mr. LYON/LYONS
Said to have had these other children:
.  Sara/Sarah LYONS, b. ca. 1828
.  Nancy LYONS-HOLT, b. 1831/2, PA {18, PA}
Father:  James HERRINGTON
Children (data in braces are {age, birthplace} from the 1850 Census):
born in Armstrong Co., PA:
1.  Eliza Melvina HOLT, b. 14 Apr 1834, Armstrong Co., PA {15, PA}

born in Geauga Co., OH:
2.  Abigail Rhoda HOLT, b. 24 Sep 1838 {12, OH}

4.  Homer H. HOLT, b. 26 Jan 1844 {6, OH}
5.  Charles Putnam HOLT, b. 27 May 1847 {3, OH}

Homer is said to have been born in Orange Twp., Cuyahoga Co., OH, but given the family's location in Geauga Co. in the 1840 and 1850 censuses, some primary documentation would be needed to confirm such an assertion.  (Elijah's mother moved to Cuyahoga Co. between 1840 and 1843; perhaps Jane went to her mother-in-law's home to birth Homer.)
