There are many Hollands besides the ones connected to the Jimmie Holland family.  Many come to this web site looking for their Holland connections and roots only to find that this is not their Holland family.  It is for all of you other Holland researchers that I have included this Holland Resource Center section of my web site.  In my own research I come across a lot of Holland material that is not relevant to my family but is good information for somebody, so I decided to share it by making it available in this section. This section has also expanded to include topics of general interest to genealogists.

Aycock-Holland Reunion


WHERE: NAHUNTA WOMEN'S CLUB, Nahunta, Wayne County, North Carolina

Please plan to join the fun at the fourth annual Aycock Reunion. What could be more pleasant than to spend a relaxing afternoon and share a meal with relatives that are dear to you, others relatives that you haven't seen in a long time and some relatives that you may have never met?  Reminisce and share things you love to remember and stories that you don't want to forget.

Please bring family history and stories to share and old pictures to show (Please put name of person(s) on the back of pictures and also your name in small print on the back at the bottom). Be careful, pressure on ball point pens may telegraph through.
This is a family picnic style reunion so bring you favorite dish(s) and dessert to share. Don't worry if you're traveling.  Reunions are a tradition in North Carolina and there are plenty of local places to buy pork barbeque, fried chicken, string beans, boiled potatoes, collards, hush puppies, coleslaw, etc., so you can pick and choose at will.  We aim to please.

Form a caravan or meander up on your own.  Others, or I will be available to tour you around to your ancestors' home places and cemeteries, as well as Charles B. Aycock (Governor of North Carolina) birthplace, (North Carolina Historic Site) and also drive you through Aycock Country on an informational tour.  It's fun and informative.  This is where it began. Also, for the Holland side, that's available also. Double fun.

I recommend two places to stay, both at exit 97 off Interstate 95 at Selma, North Carolina.  I've stayed at both.

a. Hampton Inn 1-919-965-6151- a little more pricy but very nice.
b. Holiday Inn Express 1-919-965-4000-ask for the GREAT rate.  Suppose to be for people attending local functions. 

I would make reservations early as they both fill up on weekend.

I hope you make the effort to come. I would love to see you and I think you will enjoy it..

Please let the Georgia contacts, Wayne Stewart 1-912-265-5675 or Glenn Aycock 1-912-367-8454, or Johnny Aycock 1-912-367-3512 know as soon as possible. Planning time is important.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Let other relatives know in case I don't have someone's address, I'm contacting 239 people but I could miss someone.

Charles Aycock  

From J. Wayne Stewart:

The 4th Calvin Aycock reunion is coming up Oct. 9th.. This one back in NC, would you make sure that all your crew know about it.. I don't think Charles has some of the addresses. Our NC Aycock cousins love meeting our bunch and the food is great, that bunch can cook! The last one in NC had a ton of our Holland kin folks attend so this now is as much a Holland reunion as an Aycock. So every one invited..  Everyone please feel free to spread the word, the more the better. Charles Aycock is the guy who helped our line reunion get started 4 years ago. Charles lives in Massachusetts, but was raised in NC and damn sure thinks like us. He also the one bringing out the new Aycock book. Charles has a head full of Aycock and Holland history. Any way spread the good word.. I know we are going again this year. After the reunion last year in Baxley lots our kin folks said they were going up this year and check things out. Hope we all can make it. I'll start checking and maybe we can all stay at the same motel. The two motel are close to each other, same exit. We could have a little party and a whole lot of BS.. It would be fun to get together again and as cousin Clara says "not at a funeral for a change" We've stayed at the Hampton and it's nice. Later, Wayne

The descendants of William and Sally Holland Dixon continue to gather every year for a covered dish luncheon. The reunion takes place at Piney Grove Original Free Will Baptist Church located just outside of Kenly, North Carolina on the first Sunday in June. William and Sally Dixon donated the land on which the church is built. William and Sally Dixon and many of their descendants are buried in the Dixon Family cemetery which is located on Piney Grove Church Road in Kenly, North Carolina.

Aycock-Holland  The Aycock Reunion luncheon is set for Saturday Oct. 11th at 11:30 am at Doc Holliday's restaurant, that is located in the western part of the Winn Dixie parking lot on hwy 341. After the lunch, we'll tour some of the old home-sites and visit several cemeteries. That night for the ones who still want to talk and visit. I'm sure we will be at Johnny's or Glenn Aycock's lake house. Directions to Glenn's lake house is, go north on 341 thru Baxley, about 7 miles out you will come to Graham Ga. (watch the cops) at the caution light, turn left, about 1 mile on the right, you'll see Glenn's place on right. The house has just been painted a dark green, big equipment shop next to the house, lake in back, also several tobacco barns next to the equipment shop. I'm sure you will find it. Lots of Holland's are coming in, if you go back and look at all the connections, it's all one family. I think a couple of Holland's from NC. Several of the people are coming in Friday night or late Friday.. Come when ya'll can. Bring pictures and any thing else you think people would like to see. Knowing this bunch, I'm sure there will be lots of stories told. Glenn's phone number is 912-366-9702, Clara's 366-0802, don't have Johnny's under hand but it's listed as John W. Aycock.. My cell is 912-617-2919 I'll be some where in the area probably Thursday afternoon. Please let us know by late Weds how many people are coming so we can notify the restaurant. Load up the family and come on!!
Directions to Glenn's lake house:  Go west on 341 through Baxley.  After about 7 miles you will come to Graham, Georgia.  Watch the cops.  The house is dark gray.  A big equipment shop is next to the house, lake in back, also several tobacco barns nearby. 

See ya'll soon

American Civil War

The Holland family have a rich heritage among those who fought on the side of the South during the War Between the States, otherwise known as the War of Northern Aggression. Many of their lives and accomplishments have been forgotten. It is our hope to keep their stories alive through the work of this website. We welcome your comments and contributions to this ongoing effort. Enjoy reading about the confederate history of the Holland Family in the Public Records - Military section of this website.

Many Hollands fought for the South as Confederate soldiers in the “War of Northern Aggression.” 198 Hollands from North Carolina are listed by the National Park Service. To find out if you ancestor was one of them, you can search for him here:  Or check the listing compiled for this site, which includes two Hollands who served on the Union side.
