DEATH OF HOPKINS HOLSEY

The Hon. H. Holsey, we regret to learn, died very suddenly at his residence, in Butler, Ga., on Thursday last. He had been in bad health for some time — supposed to be dropsy or disease of the heart. On Thursday night, he ate quite a hearty supper, and retired to his room, and seated himself, as usual, in an arm chair, resting his feet in another. Mrs. Holsey on entering the room soon after, addressed an enquiry to him, but received no response. Her companion was dead!

The name of Col. Holsey is familiar to the public. In 1836, we believe, he was a Representative from this State, under the general ticket system, and has also filled other responsible posts. He was a democrat of the Jacksonian school. In 1852, he was editor of the Southern Banner, and was an able leader in the Union Party. He was a clear and forceful writer, decided in his opinions, but courageous and respectful in their enunciation. As a politician he was too honest to be largely successful. His age was 61. Peace to his ashes. The Georgia Journal And Messenger, April 6, 1859.
In 1826 young Hopkins Holsey was a promising attorney with a keen interest for politics and he became acquainted with many of Hancock’s prominent citizens. Among them was General Henry Mitchell, a Revolutionary War Veteran. Hopkins Holsey fell in love with the General’s daughter Elizabeth and they were married June 27, 1826 in Hancock Co., Ga.

Hopkins Holsey married Mary Julia Neisler, daughter of Dr. Hugh & Rachel (Mitchell) Neisler, on August 15, 1850 in Clarke Co., Ga. She was 29 years younger than Hopkins.
