      This mornings column by Virginia Rollings in Daily Press mentions these names which are of interest to us: Agnes Booth born in 1821, daughter of David Booth and his wife, Ann Holloway. Also mentions Beverly Booth living on Queens Creek before 1638.

      Agnes Booth, born in 1821, mother of Edward Evans Spratley, was the daughter of David Booth and his wife, Ann Holloway. Beverly Booth was living on Queens Creek before 1638. Holloways received land grants in Isle of Wight, York, the Eastern Shore and Surry. John Holloway received an addition, in 1642, to his lands in Northampton County. York County land attracted hundreds of Eastern Shore fishermen and farmers after the Revolution, when some Tories moved away. Spratley Quaker ancestors with birth, marriage, and death dates are in Vol. VI of William Wade Hinshaw's Quaker records.
