Descendants of Henry Hollingsworth

Ninth Generation


1013. Ella Shimp Diament Hollingsworth [scrapbook] (Thomas Nicholas , Thomas Nicholas , James Nicholas , Samuel , John , Thomas , Thomas , Henry ) was born on 19 May 1902. She died on 23 Sep 1970 in Severna Park, Maryland. She was buried in 1970 in Woodlawn Cemetery, Woodlawn, Maryland.

Ella was a wonderful lady, a graduate nurse and I have very fond memories of her. She was always so nice to me and my father James.
Her husband James B. Crafton Jr., his mother and their son Richard were always the opposite. Being nice to us was not in their vocabulary, and they never failed to express their dislike for the Hollingsworth side of the family. James Crafton would even go as far as to rush into his bedroom and stay there until our visit had ended.
I always thought even as a child what a strange people he and his mother were. After Aunt Ella died I tried to keep in contact with my "Uncle Dick", but I found out at his death he miss took that as a ploy to get some of the Crafton valuables. He put in his will that I was not to recieve anything from the house etc. He was rotten even at the bitter end of his life, little did he know I wasn't looking for a damn thing.
What is really sad, there was an entire room filled with my grandparents things that were taken from the house in Westport after their death. My Aunt Ella would take me in there as a child and show me things that belong to her mother and father and tell me about them. There was hardly room to move around in the space, I remember many, many boxes of things, but one thing that stands out in my memory is my grandfather's black high hat. My would I love to root through that room now just for fun, just imagine the family memorabilia to be found.

Ella married James B. Crafton Jr. [scrapbook] son of James B Crafton Sr and Henrietta (maiden unk) Crafton. James was born on 27 Jul 1897. He died in Apr 1975 in Severna Park, Maryland.

Robin Kearney says, "Although I do not remember Emma as she died when I was two, everyone who talked about her just loved her. Even my father loved his mother-in-law.

She would "come down from the city", and spend time with my mom and dad when Mom was pregnant with my older sister. Mom said they would sit around and play cards for hours. In those days my dad was a volunteer fireman in Rivieria Beach and when the siren rang Emma insisted on going with him.

Even Mom's cousins who are only 5-10 years older than me would remark how much fun she was. Her famous line was when they were kidding her she would lament "Im packing my drawers and going home." End of quote.
