1. Burdin Holland, C. S. A. (called Burd), was born January 1833 in Wayne County, North Carolina.  He is listed in the 1860 census in Wayne County, North Carolina; reported to have moved to Greene County, North Carolina but this may be a misunderstanding of the reference on the 1870 and 1880 census to his living in Greenleaf Post Office area.  Burdin died in 1902 (from Widow's Application for Confederate Pension). The information on Burdin Holland is from his great-grandson's wife, Vickie Holland.33

Burdin served in the Army of the Confederate States in Company I of the 35th North Carolina Regiment.  He enlisted in Goldsboro, North Carolina in October 1861 and served under Captain Ellis and Lieut. William Langston.   He was discharged in Richmond on 11 August 1862 due to medical disability .  His discharge states that he was 29 years old at the time, that he was 5'8" tall, had light complexion, blue eyes, dark hair, and was a farmer by occupation when enlisted.  He was suffering from shell shock from bomb shell at the battle of Williamsburg and was deaf in one ear drum. There is further information on Burdin Holland's Civil War service in the Public Records section of this web site. 

Burdin married three times. First he married Malinda who was born about 1845 in North Carolina, and died about 1866. Next Burdin married Missouri Pate who was born about 1851 in North Carolina, daughter of Willoughby Pate (1819-1880) and Nancy Peacock (1815-1895).  A copy of Nancy Peacock's will is in the Public Records section of this web site.  Burdin and Missouri Pate were married 4 December 1866, in Wayne County, North Carolina. 

Third, at age 50, Burdin married Mary Susan Bass, age 23, daughter of Simon Bass who was born in 1847 and died in 1910, and Julia ("Judy") Cook who was born in 1851. (Simon Bass and Julia Cook divorced 8 November 1877 in Wilson County, North Carolina.)   Burdin and Mary Susan were married on 21 January 1892 in Goldsboro, Wayne County, North Carolina. There is a picture of their marriage record in the Public Records section of this web site, furnished by Vickie Holland.  

Mary Susan Bass was born in Wayne County, North Carolina, in April 1870.  She had a brother, Andrew Jackson Bass, born 1872,  who married Mary Catherine Jones, daughter of Mary Susan Bass' second husband William T. Jones.  Their daughter, Lillie Bell Bass, married James Henry Burton Holland, son of Burdin Holland, C. S. A., her first cousin.3      

Burdin died in 1902, ten years after his marriage to Mary Susan Bass.  She was 32 when he died.  After Burdin's death, Mary Susan Bass married William Thomas Jones on 7 February 1904, in Trent Township, Lenoir County, North Carolina.  William Thomas Jones was born 12 February 1843, in Wayne County, North Carolina, the son of Philip Jones (1816-1875) and Mary Benson (1818-1856).  Mary Susan Bass and William Thomas Jones had twins born 10 December 1911.  The son was William Simon Jones.  He married Clyde Bill Rose; they had children Dollis Marie Jones (b. 11/20/1931 Wayne County, m. Bruce Johnson Meadows), Ronald Thomas Jones (b. 7/07/1936, d. 8/12/1993), Ray Autry Jones (b. 12/1938), and William Edward Jones (b. 4/22/1940, m. Betty Lou Nethercutt).  He died 16 December 1970, in Greene County, North Carolina, and was buried in Snow Hill Cemetery in Snow Hill, North Carolina.  The daughter was Sally Jones.  She died about 1912.

Engraved on Burdin Holland's  tombstone is, "Pvt Co. I 35 NC INF Confederate States Army.  Mary Susan Bass filed an application for Confederate widow's pension in the name of Mary Susan Bass Holland Jones. 

Mary Susan Bass died 24 July 1932, in Wayne County, North Carolina, and was buried 25 July 1932, in the family cemetery on Liddell Shortcut Road in Lenoir County, North Carolina.  There is a picture of Mary Susan Bass in the Album section of this web site.

About this History

I wish to acknowledge the very important contributions of Mrs. Vickie Sams Holland of LaGrange, North Carolina, who researched and contributed most of the information on Burdin Holland, from whom her husband Dennis descends.  In appreciation for her work, and in her honor, I dedicate this section to their daughter who did not have the chance to know her Holland family:
