Ancestral Notes

My Family History blog

The Holden Family Homestead

In 2007, we went to the Heritage Village in Essex County for a flea market, we go every year, and there was a new building that I hadn’t seen the previous year, so I went to take a look. The building wasn’t ready for display at that time, and all of the buildings are locked during special events. As I got closer, I was amazed at the size of the building, most of the buildings are a lot smaller, but the most amazing thing about it was the name on the plaque by the door. It was donated by the descendants of James Holden, who came to Essex County about 1861. James Holden was my 4th great-grandfather!
I have yet to go inside and look around, maybe I’ll plan a trip this weekend.
