    • Some researchers claim that Vicey Colbert was the mother of Jefferson and Alexander; however, there is an age disparity which suggests the possibility of another mother. Likewise, the appearance of another Mary (who was married in 1836 at the home of her father, William Hollinger), is an argument in support of another mother. (It seems unlikely that Vicey Colbert would have named two children Mary.) It is generally agreed by Hollinger researchers that Billy Hollinger had several mates (see, e.g., Polly Stewart); however, the reader is cautioned that this is word-of-mouth. Of these children, Alexander is the only child that appears in a census (1850 U.S.) together with his father. Interestingly, Alexander's marriage did not last owing to "promiscuous intercourse with Indian, white and negro women."
