I have an Ambrose C. (Dock) Holcum/Holcomb, born Oct. 1855, in Georgia, who married Rebecca Wayland in Arkansas. Ambrose died about 1920 near Moreland, Arkansas. He & his family were on the 1880 Izard Co.AR census(he was age 24) and stated his parents were also born in Georgia. In the next household, was a Charles Holcum/Holcomb and wife Martha, ages 48 & 47 and an adopted daughter, Effe Wolfekin, age 6. I believe that Charles was probably Ambrose's father but cannot find any proof. Does anyone know these names or have further information on Charles or Ambrose?
