Elizabeth Holland Can anyone identify the Elizabeth Holland who married Sterling Moore in 1825 Washington Co. TN with William Gillespie, bond.  Was this the Sterling Moore who d 1836/7 in Wilkes Co. NC who's will names wife Elizabeth? The 1850 census of Wilkes finds the widow Elizabeth MOORE with son John Moore, his wife Rachel (Ray) and a 13 year old girl Theresa HOLLAND. Can anyone identify Theresa HOLLAND of Wilkes Co?
If the Eliz. Holland/Sterling Moore marriage from TN is the same couple as found in Wilkes Co. then Elizabeth is probably a Holland widow, rather than a Holland by birth, as Sterling Moore (of Wilkes) was born c 1770. 1850 census of Wilkes also states Eliz. was born c 1770, and born in Wilkes Cos.  Appreciate any ideas for Moore-Holland research in these areas.

Mary Holland I am trying to complete my family ancestry search without the lucky streak that I had in the beginning. I can't find Mary Holland any where.  All I have to go on is my grandmother's death certificate: AJ CHAMBERS m MARY HOLLAND CHAMBERS. They were born in the 1850-60 timespan and had 3 daughters that are listed on the certificate: (A)Merica Elizabeth Chambers Murphy (whose certificate bears the information that I am using) who was born April 11, 1899 and died at age 64 on 11-14-63. Two other sisters were also alive in 1963: Mrs. Albert Johnson of St. Charles MO (Mary Holland Chambers is also presumed living with this daughter because they are both from the same town) and Mrs. Harold Holloday/Holliday of Sullivan, MO. I am not sure of the names of the sisters except that they might be: Mae, Grace, or Lucy. I don't know which is the Holliday or Johnson-- or if they had previous marriages.  I don't even know if Mary Holland had a previous marriage before marrying Mr. Chambers. I think, however, it was the only marriage for them both.  No mention is made of Mr. Chambers on the certificate, but I presume he was deceased.  The certificate says that Merica was born in Newton County, Arkansas. I can't find a record of the Chambers family there.  There is a curious connection, however, that I also can't place them in: John Murphy married Merica. I know that they were in Tennessee when their 4 children were born: Nancy Ellen, Andrew Benjamin (Poley), and James and Rupert. They moved to Arkansas later to work in the coal mines and logging. John Murphy is the son of James Morphew/Murphy who married Virginia Medaris and they also had 3 sons (one being John) who were born in Tennessee before they moved to Pope County Arkansas and had some property. Both James and Virginia have a lot of family ties in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. Their families also kin-tie to the Daniel Boone family. Virginia is a gggranddaughter to Israel Boone, brother to Daniel Boone. The curios part is that within those families, I find the Holland and Chambers name. I just can't find an AJ (don't know what the letters stand for) or Mary Holland. I don't have a middle name for her. I realize that Polly is sometimes the nickname for Mary in Southern tradition. I can't find her as Polly either. I remember a picture of Mary when she was elderly as a tiny little lady.  Merica, was short and rotund with red curly hair. I have no idea what her sisters looked like.  If you have information that might connect to this information, please respond to: MotherMurphy@HotMail.com  Thanks, Polly Murphy
Nancy Holland My gggrandmother was Nancy Holland, born 8 Sept. 1802 in VA, but I believe her parents were moving from NC,possibly Lincoln Co. to southern Indiana. The only info I have on her background is that her Grandfather was Andrew Baldasser,(Boldorser and other similar spellings). Andrew appears in the 1790 census living in Morgan Dist. Lincoln Co. NC.  It would seem that one of his daughters married a Holland  presumably in this county. In the same census I find a Julius Holland and an Isaac Holland. I would appreciate any help in learning of what Holland line  Nancy descends. Many thanks...Don Poindexter   dtpoin@overland.net     15 January 1999
Katherine (Kate) Holland I am looking for information on Katherine (Kate) Holland born in Penna. dates unknown....... married Daniel Fox, children: Thomas, John, Michael (my grandfather) and heard there were two or three daughters..not sure of the names.

Bartholomew HOLLAND Am searching for any information about my ggrandfather - Bartholomew (Barney) HOLLAND.  He may have been born in Cork, abt 1820.  He came to Canada in 1846, living in Shipton/Danville, PQ for the rest of his life. Bartholomew m. Mary Bridget BROPHY, not sure whether in Ireland or Quebec. Mary Bridget was possibly born in Dublin. Her father's name was John, who also lived with them in his later years.

Ollin Holland I am searching for any information on the ancestry or siblings of Ollin Holland, particulary if there is a link to the Sassers.  Ollin was born about 1854 and lived in northern Wayne County, NC.  I have determined that Ollin was a son of John and Jane S. Holland (1870 Wayne Census).  Perhaps the "S" means Ollin's mother was a Sasser!  But that has yet to be established. His children included Ben, Lewis, Charlie, Henrietta, Melissa, Mary, and Patience.  A descendant of his tells me his wife was named Ruth, though the 1880 census has her name as Phoebe.  My grandfather, William M. Sasser, born May 31, 1876, was an orphan and was raised by Ollin Holland.  Because there were a number of marriages in Wayne County between Hollands and Sassers, I am hoping it was a family connection that motivated Ollin to take in and raise my grandfather.  Though my grandfather did name his real parents--Frank and Mary A. Bunn Sasser--on his 1900 marriage certificate, claiming they were both deceased, I have been unable to confirm that parentage.  There was a couple named Frank and Mary Sasser in Wayne County of a suitable age to be William's parents, and this Mary died in 1882 when my grandfather was six years old.  Her name, however, was not Bunn, but Mary N. Smith.  Also, her husband, Daniel Frank Sasser, remarried and lived to the age of 93, dying in 1948.
