8. Calvin (called Cab) C. Holland was born 7 March 1848 in Wayne County, North Carolina.  He died 20 March 1899 at age 51, and was buried at Elisha Holland Cemetery near Pinkney, Wayne County, North Carolina. He married 1st Sarah Jane Ballenberger (name changed to Berger) on 29 January 1874.  She was born 1 November 1855.  They had ten children together.  Sarah Jane died 10 November 1896 at the age of 41.  She was buried in the Elisha Holland Cemetery.  There is a picture of her grave in the Album section of this web site.  

Jane Berger was born Sarah Jane Ballenberger.  She was the 2nd child of Joseph Ballenberger, born in 1826 in Frankfurt, Germany, and Martha Langston (called Patsy) of Wayne County, North Carolina.  Patsy Langston was born about 1820.  Joseph Ballenberger served in the War Between the States and operated a store in Goldsboro.  The Ballenberger family is presented on a separate page. 

After her death, Calvin married 2nd Mary (Molly) Johnston (or Johnson) Mitchell who was born in 1836. They did not have children together.  Because of their ages, I am guessing that Molly was a widow, having been born a Johnston or Johnson and marrying a Mitchell.  If the date of her birth is correct, that is, 1836, then she would have been 61 years old if she and Calvin married the year following Sarah Jane's death in 1896. If anybody can shed more information on Mary Johnston   There is a picture of Calvin Holland in the Album - Family Photos section of this website.
