Children of Mahala F. Page and Charles Jackson Holden

Research Notes:


     The household of John M. Page (age 72, born Virginia), where Mahala was living at the time of the 1860 census, could be that of her parents. It is possible that Talitha (age 56, born in Georgia) could be her mother; June (34) and Samantha (32) could be her sisters or sisters-in-law; Lucy Ogden (29) could be a sister; and the younger folks Martha, Hester(?) and Alonzo could be nieces or nephews. It's also possible that John Page could be an uncle or some other relation. Additional research needs to be done on the Page family to confirm their relationship to Mahala.1
