This page is a sub-section of Woodard D. Holland 2's fifth child, Eli C. Holland.  It covers the children from Eli's first marriage to Mollissa Johnson. 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.

Jack (Eli C.) was married three times.  His first wife was Mollisa (called Lisa) Johnson.  She was born around 1867.  She and Jack had three children together. Lisa died in October 1897 in Georgia at age 30.  She is buried in the Holland Cemetery in Appling County, Georgia.  

Eli married 2nd a Mrs. Martin .  They had no children that survived.  All that is known about her is a tombstone in Eli's section of the Holland Cemetery in Appling County, Georgia, that reads, "Mrs. Martin Holland, Wife - Jack."  A picture of this gravestone is in the Album section of this web site.  

Eli then married Nancy Mozell Purvis. Nancy was born 30 October 1884 and died 18 July 1962.  She is buried in the  Holland Cemetery in Appling County, Georgia.  

There are pictures in the Album section of this web site of Eli C. Holland, Mollissa Johnson, their child Woodard Clinton Holland, and Eli's third wife Nancy Purvis.  There are also pictures of the Holland Cemetery in Appling County, GA and 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.
