Rena Mae (Ogle) Holliday
(1874- ? )

Rena Mae (Ogle) Holliday was born in 1874 in Fayette County, PA, the daughter of William D. and Sarah (Minerd) Ogle

At the age of 25, on Dec. 14, 1899, she married 21-year-old laborer Robert E. Holliday (1878- ? ), son of Robert and Josephine Holliday. Justice of the peace John H. Halfhill officiated at Moyer, Fayette County. At the time of marriage, Rena Mae resided in Scottdale, Fayette County, while Robert lived in Bullskin Township. On the marriage license application, Rena Mae listed her father's name as "William" but her mother's name as "Elizabeth" which causes some confusion.

They lived in Pittsburgh in 1920. 

By 1941, when Rena was mentioned in the Connellsville Daily Courier obituary of her sister Mary Emma Newingham, she made her home in California, Washington County, PA.
