George Holloway and Mary Morgan Hazelrigg came to Missouri with their family from Barry, Illinois. They traveled by covered wagon and crossed the Mississippi River at Hannibal, Missouri on a ferry. Their furniture was sent by the way of the Burlington Railroad to Bucklin, Missouri.
The family settled on a farm just north of the Marceline Junction where Mr. Hazelrigg engaged in farming. He retired a few years before his death and moved to Marceline and settled on Holmes Street.
They were the parents of thirteen children with the three surviving members still residing in Marceline. They are Nina Haney, Bertha Wolfskill, and George W., who came in the covered wagon when he was six months old.
The Hazelriggs originally came from England in 1659 and settled in Northcumberland County, Virginia. Many of the early members of the family served in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.
