The General's Chat Room


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
With the retirement in Australia of Pamela Goesch and Lionel Fowler after approximately sixty years spent researching the true descendants of General Joseph Holt, Bernadette (Ber) Holt has offered her research services to our chat rooms. We would all be aware of and appreciate Ber's amazing family research abilities. The Holt Family Fellowship researchers are extremely lucky to receive such a wonderful offer. Most of us understand the tremendous work that this involves. The Holt Family Fellowship has accepted Ber's offer with our deepest gratitude. It is fitting that our family research in our chat rooms will now be based in Ireland.

The Holt Family Fellowship reserves its right to restrict this generous service if necessary. Our chatters are reminded of the principles of "fair dealing".


The following instructions have been written to help those chatters unfamiliar with the process.

I'm sitting with our father, Lionel Fowler for the first since COVID came Easter Saturday, April last year and Dad had a stroke February 2018 so we're only getting back into The General's Chat Room today. We apologise for not being more consistent however there has been more than enough our respective plates.

In a quick response to Annette Wickham, we're not sure why you are not able to access any of the Page buttons below. Could you please describe your experience/s in anymore detail?

I will try to deal with it in conjunction with Dad (Lionel).
15th Feb 21 07:28:51 Beth Boehlen Hi! My name is Beth Boehlen and my mother was Lynne Zeleznjak Boehlen, adopted daughter of Jane Niles Zeleznjak, daughter of Clara Louise and Clifford Niles, daughter of EC Holt.

I noticed on one of the pages that my Nana Jane is not listed under children of Clara yet my great Aunts Betty, Helen, Tirzah, and Helen are. I am very excited to learn of my Nana's family. My mom was adopted by Jane in 1955 and was her only child. I was very close to my Nana until she passed in Feb 1996. She is buried with my Pop Pop Stephen Zeleznjak in the Anamosa cemetery with the rest of my Nana's family. I try to visit the cemetery every couple years with my children so that my grandparents and their families live on in stories.
7th Dec 20 13:32:11 John Clark Hi all, I have just joined the group so I should introduce myself: I am a 7th generation descendant of the General, from the marriage of Elizabeth Holt to John Fowler. I am no 815 in Gary Holt's published list of descendants.

I have just received an Ancestry DNA match with Brian Dixon (no 489 in Gary Holt). We share 128cMs of DNA which is a goodf amount for fourth cousins. Does anyone else have DNA results with Ancestry, Gedmatch or other sources?

9th Aug 20 00:06:21 Daniel  Pianto John Rochford and Mary Ann Holt were my Ancestor's from the Glendalough Area. It is believed John Rochford was the son of Thomas Rochford who had a brother John Rochford both employees of Charles Frizel of Castlekevin. The Rochford brothers had their homes destroyed in the 1798 rebellion. Their mother Jane Rochford is buried in the Derrylossary Church Yard. Legend has it she came from France as a Widow with her two Sons as mentioned Thomas and John Rochford in the service of Charles Frizel.

Is Mary Ann Holt a sister to General Holt? Would she be related to this family?
