Hiram J. Holley

Private, Company D, 38th Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry
Born May 14, 1827 in Georgia; married Matilda Roberts on October 3, 1847. On May 6, 1861, within several weeks of the firing on Fort Sumter, Holley was commissioned an Ensign in the “Stone Mountain Volunteers.” A year later, on March 1, 1862, he was recruited in the “Murphy Guards” at Camp Bartow near Savannah. He was detached to provost marshal duty for several months before being admitted to the hospital for much of the rest of 1862. Throughout 1863, Holley was detailed to various assignments as harness maker and mechanic. He was captured at Harrisonburg, Virginia on October 1, 1864 and sent to Point Lookout military prison in Maryland. He was released on May 13, 1865.

Holley returned to Stone Mountain where he resided as a harness maker. He was also a member of Stone Mountain Masonic Lodge No. 111. Holley died on May 23, 1883. His headstone reads:

OUR FATHER AND MOTHER ARE GONE,
THEY LIE HERE WITH THE SOD;
DEAR PARENTS,
THOW WE MISS YOU SO MUCH
WE KNOW YOU REST WITH GOD
