* Possible children:

6. Curtis Holland, sixth child of Elisha Holland and Patience Watkins, was born in 1800 or 1801, in North Carolina.  Curtis Holland married Nancy Holland 1 May 1823 in Wayne County, North Carolina.  Nancy Holland, born in 1808, was from Edgecombe County, North Carolina, coming there from Nansemond County, Virginia.  She was not from the Jacob Holland family, as previously thought, but possibly came from the Richard, Daniel, or Dempsey Holland families.  They all lived in Edgecombe County at the same time as Jacob Holland but they didn't show up on the 1790 census. Curtis and Nancy are listed in Wayne County Marriage Bonds, witnessed by William Jackson.  

Nancy Holland was possibly the daughter of John Holland from whom Elisha Holland bought property. That Elisha Holland bought property from John Holland is mentioned in Elisha's will and is recorded in the grantee-grantor index book of Dobbs (historic) County, North Carolina. This John Holland was possibly the John Holland described in Nellie Russell's book, Bonnie New World, who came with Elisha Holland to Dobbs County from Gates County.

Curtis is listed in the 1830 census of Wayne County with four children.  He is listed in the 1860 census of Johnston County, North Carolina, at age 59, born in North Carolina, along with his wife Nancy Holland and three children.  He died in Johnston County, North Carolina, in 1876, and was buried in the Curtis Holland Cemetery near Hickory Crossroads in Johnston County. 

Children of Curtis Holland and Nancy Holland: 

1.  Possible but unsubstantiated child: Curtis Holland was born est. 1820.  There is a Wayne County, North Carolina marriage record for Curtis Holland and Charlotte Atkinson on 13 Jul 1852, at the home of John Holland. This record could be for this Curtis, possibly the 1st son of Curtis Holland and Nancy Holland.86 

2.  Possible but unsubstantiated child: Calvin Holland was born before 1830.  

3.  Possible but unsubstantiated child: Bryant Holland was born before 1830. In the Johnston County marriage bond records, there is a Bryant Holland marrying Polly Lee 16 Jun 1853. The marriage was performed by J. Johnson, Justice of the Peace, and witness was John H. Keneday, Clk. I don't know if it is the same Bryant Holland as this, but the date fits. This Bryant Holland would have been 23 or more years old, since he was born "before 1830."  

I have him born "before 1830" because his parents, Curtis and Nancy Holland are listed in the 1830 census with 4 children and Bryant is their 3rd child that I know of.  

There is a Confederate Army record for a Bryan Holland who enlisted 23 Aug 1862 as a Private at Wayne County, NC, into "F" Co., NC 1st Light Artillery. On 20 Mar 1864 he transferred into "G" Co, NC 3rd Infantry.  This could be Bryant Holland.  The military record is in the Public Records section of this web site.  Source: North Carolina Troops 1861-65, A Roster.69

It seems likely that there were other children born between 1830 and Enos J. in 1838 so I place Alva and Polly here:

4.  Alva Holland was born est. 1832.

5. Poly Holland was born est. 1835.

6.  Enos J. Holland, C. S. A., was born in 1838.  He is listed in the 1870 census for Johnston County, North Carolina.  

Enos J. Holland enlisted in the Confederate Army as a Private, serving North Carolina; the date of his enlistment is unknown. He took the Oath of Allegiance on 22 October 1864 at Fort Monroe, VA.  There is further information on Enos J. Holland's Civil War service in the Public Records section of this web site. 

On 6 March 1868, he married Zilphia Jane Pate who was born in 1840.  She was the daughter of Zilphia (last name unknown, born about 1805) and Bryant Handley Pate, and was the widow of John Wesley Garris (born ca. 1838).29    Enos and Zilphia died around 1876 of tuberculosis.50   After their parents' deaths, sons Curtis Frankkin Holland and Bryant Holland were reared by their mother's brother, the Rev. Thomas Jefferson Pate and his wife, Anna Holland, daughter of Curtis Holland and Nancy Holland. "Darb" Holland was reared at Wait Garris' home. 
Children of Enos J. Holland and Zilphia Jane Pate:

7. Susan Anna (called Annie) Holland was born about 1842.  She was listed in the 1860 census for Wayne County, North Carolina as 18 years old.   She married Thomas Jefferson Pate, son of Bryant Handley Pate and his wife Zilphia.  He was pastor of Rock Springs Freewill Baptist Church on Olive Chapel Road at the crossroads near the Ed Clark homeplace near Apex, North Carolina.  He is brother to Zilphia Pate who married second Enos J. Holland.

8.  Possible but unsubstantiated child: Sally Holland was born about 1846.  She was listed in the 1860 census for Wayne County, North Carolina as 14 years old.
