William Holland to Rena Wiggs on 15 August 1867 Page 1 
Parents of Groom: Absolum Holland and Nancy Holland 
Parents of Bride: Thomas A. Deans and Patience Deans 
Place of Marriage: T. A. Deans 
Married by: J. C. Rhodes, J. P.

E. G. Holland to Rena Wiggs on Not Listed Page l 
Parents of Groom: Exum Holland and Penninah Holland 
Parents of Bride: Will Hill and Mariah Hill 
Place of Marriage: Not Given 
Married by: Unknown.

It is noted that the Wayne County marriage register had E. G. Holland marrying Rena Wiggs. It also has William Holland marrying Rena Wiggs, an obvious error. In the William Holland entry, the bride's parents are Thomas A. Deans and Patience Deans. We know that William W. Holland, son of Absalom Holland and Nancy Hales, married Roena Deans so this entry seems to be somewhat correct. Roena Deans could have married a Wiggs first. 

As for the E. G. Holland entry, this is Elisha G. Holland, son of Exum Holland and Penny Boswell. The Wayne County marriage register has the bride's parents as Will Hill and Mariah Hill. We believe Elisha was married to a Sarah Hill so these parents would substantiate that marriage but it is unexplainable why the bride is listed as Rena Wiggs. If anybody can shed any light on this situation or add to these records, please get in touch.  

A. G. Holland to Smithy Bryant on 19 November 1867 Page 2 
Parents of Groom: Elisha Holland and Patience Holland 
Place of Marriage: B. G. Barnes 
Married by: B. G. Barnes, J. P.

This could be the record for Needham Gray Holland, son of West Holland and Sally Grice who did marry Smithy Bryant.  There is also an Alson G. Holland, son of Eson Holland and Elizabeth Hicks, who was born in Georgia in 1850, making him a reasonable age for a marriage in 1867, but we have him marrying Saphrona Kelly in Georgia, so he is less likely the person of this marriage record. 

Enos Holland to Zilpha Garris on 6 March 1869 Page 10 
Parents of Groom: Curtis Holland and Nancy Holland 
Parents of Bride: Bryan H. Pate and Zilphia Holland

Zilpha Pate was first married to John Wesley Garris.

Assuming this is the son of Exum Holland and Penniah Boswell Holland, the groom would be Addison Pearson Holland who married Belle Franklin.
