My earliest known Holland ancestor is John Holland who was born in 1746 in New Kent, Virginia. He married Jane Jenkins, born in 1744 in Prince George County, Virginia, in 1770.
It was their great grandson, Bluford Caldwell Holland who was the first of my Holland ancestors to settle in Henderson County, Texas in the mid-19th century. Bluford was born 10 July, 1822 in Alabama; and his wife, Charlotte Ann Davis, was also born in Alabama on 30 September, 1821. They were married on 13 March, 1845 in Sumpter County, Alabama.
