Annetje’s parents moved to New York from the Bogart family land out in Oyster Bay, Long Island, for about three years, during which time Annetje was born. Then they moved back to Oyster Bay. In 1820 Annetje’s father drove a team to Cincinnati, Ohio, taking the family with him. Annetje would have been seven years old at the time. (See notes on her father's page.)

Helen East Holliday DeWitt wrote [link removed—ask Webmaster], “Annetta Bogart Holliday was a real Wyoming pioneer, coming West in 1870 with her sons and daughters in spite of the fact that her husband, Eli Holliday, who had preceded her, had died at Sherman, near Laramie in 1868. Although almost 60 years of age, she acquired a ranch near Virginia Dale, which she managed personally.”

Eli had actually left Ohio in 1852 to head for California, returning in 1855, then leaving again in 1858 for Douglas County, Illinois, then Jackson County (for more detail, see his page). So Annetta was used to running the family and the farm on her own. Of her sons, at least William Helmus (“W.H.”) was already in Wyoming Territory by the time she moved there; Jethro (“J.T.”) may have been there as well.

One source refers to her (erroneously?) as “Mary Annetta (Bogart) Holliday.”
