DAVID HOLLOWAY (deceased) was born on Duck Creek, Hamilton Co., Ohio. Feb. 20, 1799; his parents were Jacob and Hannah (Cory) Holloway, natives of New Jersey, of English descent; the former was born Oct 26, 1767, and the latter Oct. 7, 1772, and they died April 2, 1852, and Nov. 26, 1862, respectively. The parents emigrated to Ohio toward the close of the eighteenth century, and about the year 1800 settled in what is now Warren County, on the present Shubal Vail farm. Our subject, at the age of 14, united with the Shakers, in company with his father, with which society he lived until about the year 1831. He married Ann, daughter of Thomas and Mercy (Curtis) Nicholson, who was born in Pennsylvania Nov. 5, 1809, of English descent, Dec, 8, 1835, and to them were born Hannah (deceased), Mary E., Thomas, John, Jacob C. and William. Mr. Holloway died Feb. 1, 1875, having passed his life on a farm, never living out of the sound of the Shaker bell.
