Also have no info on her first husband (my great grandfather) who fathered Rachel Elizabeth Whitby and several other children. My paternal grandmother Margaret Holland (maiden) was born 11 April 1919 and died 27 Jan 1991 but I am unable to find anything on her parents except her mothers first name was Lydia. Her married name was McFarland. My mothers paternal grand parents were Clara Hudson and Wesley Christopher Tribbett. I don't know if they were in Delaware or Maryland.

Seven brothers came over from Bantry, County Cork, Ireland in approx 1825-27. Some stayed in Halifax, Nova Scotia; some went to Fredericton, New Brunswick; some went to Ontario; and some went to Boston, Mass.

George Holland, NY

My family has been seeking GEORGE Holland for 3 years now continually!  His son, JOHN Holland, was born 1802 at West Copake Reformed, Columbia County, NY, and his wife was CATHARINE DRUM. John went on to Manorton Reformed Church, also in Columbia County where John and an Elizabeth KELLERHAUS baptized 4 children (starting with John Henry in 1821), then moved to Schoharie, NY, to raise 4 more, and finally settled and died in Wayne County, NY. George and Catharine's marriage, and George's birth seem to have evaded us for all these years. Thanks, and God bless!

Daniel Holland, San Francisco, CA 1800's

"Daniel Holland was born...six miles out on London port...Aug 6 1839, 'W' adopted later.  He was named for the village from which he came, Woolwich, England, outside of London.  The folks at Ellis Island insisted on two given names."  He was born when his family was on its way back from India.  He immigrated to the U.S. in 1867 and eventually settled in San Francisco where he became somewhat of a renowned tailor.  In 1869 he brought his younger brother, Edward, to the U.S. and returned to his native land in 1871 to marry Louisa C. Brayshaw (1849-c. 1902).  Their first child, Louisa C. Holland, was born in England in 1874, but the young family returned to San Francisco and their thriving tailor shop in 1875.  Eight more children were born in San Francisco:  Flora D.; Herbert G.; Lillian; Jessie H.; Ruby; Gertrude; Alice Maude; Mae Evelyn.  Daniel died in San Francisco in 1919. Any help with the ancestors or descendants of this family? Thanks,

James Holland, OH>MD I am trying to trace a JAMES Holland from OH back to MD.  The 1860 census for Lodi twp, Athens County, OH, lists James Holland 41, with the following:  RUTH 18, HARRY 13, EMELINE  12, HOPTON 8, (spelled UPTON on the 1870 census), AMOS 6, AMANDA 3, HARRET 43, (she is listed last with note "seamstress" although I presume she is the wife.) I have copied the names exactly as shown on the census.  All persons were listed as born in MD, which if true, means that they came to OH around 1857.  Any info on this family will be greatly appreciated, and I would like to share the info that I have.  Thanx.
