This page is a sub-section of Woodard D. Holland 2 and his wife Rhoda's fifth child, Eli C. Holland.  It covers the children of his third marriage with Nancy Mozell Purvis. The complete line of Eli's parents, Woodard D. and Rhoda, along with Eli's siblings is located on Woodard D. 2's page.  

A note the Woodard D. Hollands in this family.  There are three generations of Woodard D. Holland, beginning with Elisha's son born in 1794.  Since we do not know what the D. stands for, we cannot assume that the second Woodard D. was a Junior, or that his son was the 3rd; their middle names could have all been different.  So, for the sake of referencing them in this family history, I am going to refer to the second-generation Woodard D. Holland, born in 1834, as Woodard D. 2, and to his son, born in 1868, as Woodard D. 3.  This is not to be taken as repeated names in subsequent generations which we would distinguish as Jr. and III, but merely as a convenience of reference.

There are pictures of Nancy Mozell Purvis and Eli C. (Jack) Holland in the Album section of this web site, as well as pictures of their graves in the  Holland Cemetery in Appling County, Georgia. There are also pictures of the graves of many of the people in this family.  The pictures were provided by Pat and Skip Coggin and Nancy Holland Slagle.  Nancy Holland Slagle photo-recorded the Cemetery in March 2001.  She reported that she saw three infant graves with stones inscribed, "Infant of Jack" on each one.  We do not know which of this wives these infants belonged to.

About this History

My father's people came from Wayne County, North Carolina.  Although I live in Alabama now, I inherited his love of our heritage.  So it is with love for him and admiration for his strong desire to preserve our history that I dedicate my part in compiling and maintaining this Holland Family History and Tree to my father,
