A True Pioneer Story This is not about any Harris/Holaday family member, but a really interesting read!

If the link doesn't work, you can download a Microsoft Word doc here.
History of Adair Co, Iowa, and its People Lots of history about the Holadays.
Life in Madison County during the Civil War by Caroline Murray. Caroline was the daughter of George Holaday and Lydia Hollingsworth Holaday. This is an *exceptional* piece and a moving read even if you are not related ! :) (If you are a child of one of the children of Ernest and Ethel, the author is your 2nd great grand aunt.)
