4. Patience Holland was born in 1859. She died young.  A tombstone in the Elisha Holland Cemetery has - Patia Holland, born 18 May 1860 - died 6 June 1860.  That grave is possibly this child's.  There is a picture of this grave in the Album section of this web site. 

5. Celia (Seeley) Holland was born 15 May 1861, probably in Wayne County, North Carolina.  She did not marry.  She died 4 September 1913, and was buried in the Elisha Holland Cemetery in Wayne County, North Carolina.   On her tombstone is engraved, "She shall wake on the resurrection morn."  There is a picture of her gravestone in the Album section of this web site.

Francis Marion Holland was named for South Carolina-born American Revolutionary War General Francis Marion, the "Swamp Fox".  The "Swamp Fox," nicknamed by British soldiers because of his natural talent for strategy and tactics and his personal bravery, became a hero second only to George Washington.  For many years after the war, thousands of parents named sons Francis Marion, and scattered over the present United States, there are over 29 cities and towns and 17 counties named after him 19.

Most of the information in this section on Francis Marion Holland was furnished by his great-grandson David Thomas Holland of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in June 1997.
Children of Francis Marion Holland and Rebecca Hales:

7.Diana Holland was born 29 May 1866 in Wayne County, North Carolina.  She died in 4 September 1936 at age 70, based on the tombstone in the Elisha Holland Cemetery in Wayne County, North Carolina.  Nellie Russell had her date of death as 10 July 1926, and M. D. K. Holland had it as or 4 September 1918; I do not know where they got their dates.  Diana was called Kid; she did not marry.  There is a picture of her in the Album section of this web site and also a picture of her gravestone in the Album Cemetery section.  Her obituary is in the Public Records section of this web site.

These sisters raised Zeno Dixon, the son of their sister Sally Holland Dixon.

Zilphia died 25 November 1930 and was buried in the Elisha Holland Cemetery.  There is a picture of her in the Album section of this web site and a picture of her grave also in the Album Cemetery section.  

The information on Green Holland is from a Bible that was in the possession of  Bettie Dixon Bass in 1948, in Kenly, North Carolina. Darren Niven also contributed information on the Green Holland family.  Mrs. Gladys Holland Pierce of Kenly, North Carolina, contributed the information on the Alex Holland family.  Mr. Gilford Holland of Wilson, North Carolina, contributed the information on the Frank Holland family which was added to and extended in June 1997 by David Thomas Holland of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, great-grandson of Francis Marion Holland.  The information on Sally Holland's family was contributed by Beth Speight.

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,
