    Notes 

    • (1) William HOLDREN, Sr. is shown here as a son of Benjamin HOLDREN in order to stimulate further research. The compiler has no conclusive proof of such relationship. Moreover, some of the information set forth herein may not necessarily relate to the person to whom it purportedly refers.

      (2) A household headed by William HOLDRON is listed in the 1830 census of Madison Township, Columbia County, PA. [Note by compiler: William is listed in the index to the 1830 census as William HOLDROUR; also, he is listed in the index to the 1830 census as residing in Derry Township, but he actually then resided in Madison Township.]

      Listed in William's household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 40 and 50 years of age; 1 free white female under 5 years of age; and 1 free white female between 40 and 50 years of age.

      Assuming that William is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that William's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, she would have been born between 1780 and 1890, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in William's household are children of William and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of one son (which son would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census) and one daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census).

      [Note by compiler: A household headed by William HOLDRON is listed in the 1830 census of Greenwood Township, Columbia County, PA, but the information about that household does not seem to fit the information about the household of William HOLDREN listed in the 1840 census of Madison Township, Columbia County, PA, or the household of Wm. HOLDREN listed in the 1850 census of Madison Township, Montour County, PA.]

      (3) A household headed by William HOLDREN is listed in the 1840 census of Madison Township, Columbia County, PA.

      Listed in William's household are 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 50 and 60 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; and 1 free white female between 50 and 60 years of age.

      Assuming that William is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, he would have been born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that William's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 50 and 60 years of age, she would have been born between 1780 and 1890, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in William's household are children of William and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of one son (which son would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1840 census) and two daughters [which daughters would have consisted of one daughter who was born between 1825 and 1830, and one daughter who was born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census].

      (4) Montour County, PA was formed on 3 May 1850 from Columbia County, PA. This apparently caused some confusion in the 1850 census, in which Wm. HOLDREN is listed as residing in Madison Township, Montour County, PA. Madison Township is located in Columbia County, not Montour County. There is no Madison Township in Montour County.

      (5) A household headed by Wm. HOLDREN is listed in the 1850 census of Madison Township, Montour County, PA [sic]. [See Note (4), above.]

      Wm. is listed as in the 1850 census as a farmer who was then 67 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1783. According to the 1850 census, he was born in NJ.

      Listed with Wm. is his wife, Grace, who was then 64 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1786. According to the 1850 census, she was born in NJ.

      Also listed with Wm. is his daughter, Cath., who was then 22 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1828. According to the 1850 census, she was born in PA.

      Also listed with Wm. is his daughter, Holdy, who was then 17 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1833. According to the 1850 census, she was born in PA.
