Ellis H. Holley is buried in the Zion Church of Christ Cemetery in Parrish, Alabama. Take I-22 between Birmingham and Memphis, and go to Exit 63, Hwy. 269, and head south toward Parrish, Alabama. When getting into Parrish, turn left on Main St./Co. Rd.20/American Junction Road. (Known by all three). Go a couple hundred yards and you will see the Zion Church of Christ on the right.

Editor's Note: The Holley family is buried in the church cemetery at Zion Church of Christ. Zion is the second oldest church of Christ in Walker County, Alabama. New Hope, north of Oakman is older. The church had its start as early as 1860 or earlier. The first building was located about one mile south of where American Junction is located. The building was destroyed by fire around 1870. The brethren rebuilt the church about 1/2 mile south of the former location. The met there for about five years, when they decided to move again to the present location of the church.
