Who was Evie Clyde Holman?

Evie Clyde Holman, born in Buckingham County on October 20, 1897, was the daughter of Virginia Wythe (Eldridge) and Samuel Leake Holman. In 1910, Evie’s parents had been married for nineteen years.

“Ginny” (Eldridge) Holman was the daughter of Eliza (Hanes) and John Rolfe Eldridge, who owned Eldridge Mills, with its associated store and post office, making Evie and Meade Hanes second cousins as well as neighbors.

Though Evie undoubtedly long mourned the death of Meade Hanes, Evie eventually married Houston L. Gary on April 5, 1922.

She died on October 13, 1971 of “acute and chronic respiratory failure” due to “congestive heart failure” at Southside Community Hospital, in Farmville, Virginia. Clyde Gary reported her death.
