1723 - 1799

An early pioneer, leader and landowner, Michael Holt II was the son of Michael Holt I who had moved to this area in he 1750s. He is buried nearby with his two wives, "Peggy" O'Neal and Jean Lockhart. He had ten children who became the ancestors of many of today's Alamance County families.

Holt was politically active in the years of the Regulation and the Revolution. The Battle of Alamance was fought on his land in 1771. His role in the Revolution began as a Tory, raising and leading a militia company for the crown in 1776. Shortly thereafter, he had a change of sympathies and supported the Revolution for the remainder of the conflict.
