FACTS and EVENTS: 

Derrell Upright Hollis’ father, Berry Hollis, died in 1805.

Berrimon (Berry) Hollis wrote his will on October 13, 1805.  The will was proved up in Fairfield Co, SC on December 30, 1805.  Berry Hollis died some time between those two dates.  In his will he names his wife as Priscilla.  He names two of his children – son Derrell Upright Hollis and daughter Elizir Mariah Hollis.  (The will’s grammar is confusing, it makes it sound like Lear, Friday, and Deal are his sons – but in fact, these are his slaves.  When read together with the previous paragraph, it is obvious that he is saying that these three slaves are to go to his sons when his wife Priscilla dies).   It appears he only has two children, with the language in the will:

“Also I give and bequeath to my younger daughter Elizer Mariah Hollis two negros named Tom and Venus to her and the lawful heirs born of her body and all my household furniture at her death or marriage to be equally divided between my two children Darrell Upright Hollis and Eliza Mariah Hollis.”

He appoints Isaac Knighten and Moses Hollis Sr as executors of his will.  Witnesses are Francis Long, Elijah Hollis Sr, and Elijah Hollis Jr.
