Woodard's branch as it extends through his son Woodard D. Holland 2, 
and through his son Eli C. Holland, and through Eli's son James Franklin Holland


26 June 1908 - 23 November 1984

This page is a sub-section of Eli C. "Jack" Holland and his wife Nancy's second child, James Franklin Holland.  The complete line of his parents along with his siblings is located on Eli C. and Nancy Purvis' 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.

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,
