MURRAY COUNTRY FAMILIES
The Isaac Lollar family was living in Murray County's present-day Free Hope Community when the 1860 Census was taken. The listing includes Isaac, age 41, Jane, age 38; Mary E., age 12; Martha A., age 9; William L. A., age 4, John L., age 3; and Thomas L. A., age 8 months.
That Census reports that Isaac Lollar had been born in North Carolina, about 1819. The family used the post office at Spring Place.
The Census of 1870 provided additional information, middle initials for both parents. Isaac C. and Jane A. Lollar. Offspring living at home at that time were William L, age 14; Jno. L., age 12; and Thomas L., age 10.
Isaac died in 1880 and was buried in the nearby Morris H. Varnell Cemetery. His grave stone reads: I. C. Lollar, Born in North Carolina, November 18, 1818. Died in Georgia, March 5, 1880.
The 1880 Census listed Jane Lollar, widowed, as head of the household. It indicated that she and both her parents had been born in North Carolina. The only child still living at home was T. Asher, age 20.
Although it is probable that all of the Lollar family members were buried in the same cemetery as the father, only one other marker has the Lollar name. It reads: J. L. Lollar, August 9, 1857. March 12, 1899. The cemetery has an estimated 100+ graves without markers.
