And More…. Images from my Family Tree
John Poe and Sarah Threet
Along with the family of John’s brother, Simon Poe, a large group of settlers came by wagon from Fayette County, Alabama to Saline (now Grant) County, Arkansas about 1852 establishing the community of Belfast – chosen because of a natural spring at the site. Warren Holiman, ancestor of Sarah Elizabeth Holiman, my great-grandmother, wife of John Poe’s grandson, William Elkin Poe, led the expedition. The community was relocated in the late 1800s. Nothing remains at the original site but a marker – now inaccessible on land owned by a hunting club. The markers lists names. Many of the families came together in a group led by Warren Holiman in 1850. John and Sarah along with several of their children and other relatives are buried in Poe Cemetery, Grant County, Arkansas.
