8. Sally Holland was born 13 September 1868. Holland family researcher Irma Regan Holland7 gives her name as Sarah, although most researchers refer to her as Sally. I have seen many, many instances in family histories of a baby being given a formal name at birth, only to be called by a less formal or nickname from then onwards. When the nickname was used to the extent that nobody knew the person by any other name, what name should we use in a family history? Marriage registers and grave markers will use the nickname because that has become the name the person is known by; indeed, the only name anyone knows. Births were not officially recorded in North Carolina at the time of Sarah Holland's birth; in fact, they were not officially mandated until 1913, although a few counties may have recorded them prior to that year. This same question of formal or official name vs. common or nickname arises over Sally's daughter Annie's name.
Sally married William Joseph Dixon on 13 October 1889. He was son of Joshua Dixon and Elizabeth Virginia Edgerton. His sister, Martha Jean Dixon, married Demetrius Edgerton, son of Elizabeth Holland and Exum Pike Edgerton. Sally died in 1924. Beth Speight109 says that Sally's tombstone lists her death as March 20, 1924. Irma Regan Holland gives the date of her death as May 20, 1924, citing a Photostat of the family Bible. Clarification on this date is needed. Pictures of Sally Holland and William Dixon and some of their children are in the Album section of this web site.
The descendants of William and Sally Holland Dixon continue to gather every year for a covered dish luncheon. The reunion takes place at Piney Grove Original Free Will Baptist Church located just outside of Kenly, North Carolina, on the first Sunday in June. William and Sally Dixon donated the land on which the church is built. William and Sally Dixon and many of their descendants are buried in the Dixon Family cemetery which is located on Piney Grove Church Road in Kenly, North Carolina.
information in this section is from a Dixon family Bible that was in the possession of
Dixon Bass in 1948, in Kenly, North Carolina, when she was interviewed by
Nellie Russell; from Irma Regan Holland's book, and from Beth Speight.

2. Annie or Anna
Dixon was born 8 August 1891. While most researchers and records give
her name as Annie, M. K. D. Holland6
refers to her as Anna. She married Ira Edgerton. Ira was born 15
December 1889, and died 1 June 1962. Annie died soon after the birth of her
child Lacy, in March 1919, and was buried in the
Elisha Holland cemetery in Wayne County, North Carolina. Her gravestone has the date of her death as 25 March 1919,
whereas the Dixon family Bible, referred to above, gives the date of her death as 20
March 1917. I am accepting the gravestone date as the correct date of death. Her gravestone also
shows her name to be "Annie." There is a picture
of her gravestone in the Album
section of this web site.
