Likely siblings: (The following two names are listed on Sarah Hollis’ probate papers as her “heirs” receiving an equal share as her other children in probate.  This likely means that James Hollis Sr and Sarah Hollis had their own children named John and Moses.  These would appear to be a different set of John and Moses Hollis than Moses Hollis and Catherine Hollis’ children – so look for two different John and Moses about the same age as they are cousins likely living nearby or living in the same areas).

March 4, 1800, Benjamin Hollis proves up a deed for William Hollis who had purchased 100 acres of land from Gideon Whittehead (or Gideon Whitted) of Chester County, SC. He indicated in the deed that the land was for Samuel Hollis, son of William Hollis. The land was along the wouth fork of the Little River bounded by George Evans land, John Lee’s land, Joseph Reynolds’? land, and along Kirkley’s land, and along Stephen Titshew’s? line.
The land was originally granted to Thomas Hill on January 2, 1788. (The deed’s first page is very difficult to read towards the bottom – see below).

1800 Deed_N_0020a Gideon Whitted to Wm Hollis released to Samuel Hollis

1800 Deed_N_0021a marked snip

The fact that William Hollis purchased this land on behalf of his son Samuel Hollis gives at least some evidence that his year of birth was probably fairly close to 1780.  At 20 years old, he is old enough to be married and have his own children, and likely needs his own house and land for his young family, but if he is under-age (under 21 years old) he is considered a minor and too young to legally make a contract for a deed.  It would make sense that his father, William Hollis, purchased the land for him in this situation.

This Samuel Hollis (son of William Hollis) having a year of birth around 1780 makes it a bit confusing, as his uncle Samuel Hollis has a year of birth estimated to be about 1775.  So they will be very close in age, and it may be easy to confuse their documentation.  (Will need to confirm my theory of Samuel’s age above with other documents if available).

In 1802, buyers at James Hollis Sr’s estate are:
Sarah Hollis (his wife/widow), Benjamin Hollis (son), James Hollis (son), Littleton Hollis (son), Burrel Hollis (son), William Hollis (son)
