Thomas Holland

1Holland Family Records Compiled by Pat & James H. Holland, Provided to T.Mason in 1999. "Thomas Holland, states in his Revolutionary War records  that  he was born on the east coast of  Maryland, December 24, 1759. And as a young child his parents moved first to  Pittsylvania Co., Virginia, and he was living in Montgomery Co., Virginia when the Revolutionary War started. He was drafted to serve in the  battle of Guildford Courthouse  with the Virginia Troops under Capt. Jeremiah Pearce. He served with Captain Abraham Trigg's and was in the battle of Rugsley Mills and Shallow Ford on the Yadkin River. He served with Colonel Martin's Regiment from sometime in August 1781 and served  with Captain Paris Company in 1783. He moved to Green County, North Carolina and served with Captain William Jobe in the first war against the Cherokee Indians.

After the Revolution he remained in Greene Co., North Carolina which  later became Green Co., Tennessee. and later became Cocke Co., Tennessee. In the later part of 1783 Indians began to steal the cattle and horses of the few persons and families who had that year settled along the French Broad River. The Indians then retreated across the mountains into present Cherokee, North Carolina. It was all North Carolina then, and Maj Peter Fine and Captain John McNabb raised a company of about thirty men and pursued the Indians. In the company was the son of Maj Peter Fine, Vinet Fine. It was on their return trip to the French Broad from across the mountain, after they had succeeded in their mission and recovered the stolen animals, that while the troops were in camp for the night, the Indians attacked them by surprise killing Vinet Fine and wounding Thomas Holland and Mr. Bingham. After the departure of the Indians, who hung around the camp until morning, the white men broke a hole in the ice and put the body of Vinet Fine in the creek with intentions of returning later for the body. Before they could return the creek flooded and the body washed on down the creek. The wounded men were brought in safely and recovered from their wounds. It continued to be necessary for two years  to keep scouts between Pigeon and French Broad during  this time. Nehemiah and Simeon were killed, scalped and their guns taken also a boy ten years old named Nelson was killed.  From that day to this, the stream in which Vinet Fine was buried beneath the ice has been known by the name of "Fines Creek" and the area as Fines Creek Township in Haywood County, North Carolina.

It is belived that Thomas Holland and Drucilla married in late 1785 or early 1786 probably in Washington or Green County North Carolina. It is felt that Drucilla's surname was Christian and was a daughter of Nathaniel Christian and Jane Ewing (have not been able to prove this). Thomas purchased and operated a ferry on the French Broad River in 1798 in the Del Rio area where he and his brother John  settled and raised their family east of Newport about 8 miles. (This story is recorded in the book over the Misty Blue Hills, page 95. Thomas Holland was commissioned as Captain April 3, 1800 with the Cocke county  Regiment of Militia, page 318  "Over the Misty Blue Hills." Thomas Holland was also appointed to assist David Stuart run the line between Cocke County and Green County in 1799. This is when Cocke County was established. He was paid one dollar a day to set stakes. Thomas Holland sold about 1200 acres of land to Swan Burnett in September of 1833 and moved to near Liberty in Clay County, Missouri to apply for a Land Grant for services rendered in the Revolutionary War. He died in early 1834 prior to receiving the Land Grant. He is probably buried  about five miles west of Liberty Missouri  in the old Holland  Cemetery.  He applied for a transfer of his pension at Liberty from Tennessee to Missouri in May 1834 .

    On the 1840 Census record for Plattre County Missouri . there was a Drucilla Holland listed as being between 70 and 80 years of age, living in a separate household on Benjamin Holland land."

"Jacob's father, Thomas HOLLAND, was born in Maryland 24 December 1759 and moved to Virginia with his family as a child. His wife was Mary BOYDSTON. He served in the Revolutionary War and the following Cherokee Wars while living in Virginia. He was drafted four times serving from one to three months each time. He was wounded, shot through the thigh in August 1883."

Abstract by Marsha Holland (Copied by James Holland) 1997. "With his Brother Edward was a provider for the Continental Army in 1776, based on warrants issued in Williamburg. Was apparently paid in 1776 to remove a cannon from New Kent Court House to Cumberland Town in New Kent County, Virginia. Was a soldier in the infantry in the Continental Line 2.3.2, -- received the balance of his pay, in January, 1783. According to Audit Accounts XXI , P 287.
    He married Pamelia (or Permelia) Love, about 1760 or 1762 and Mary Law 1800.
    Said to have been living near Lynchburg in 1770, at the time of the birth of his son Charles H. and Petersburg, Virginia when his son William Briscoe was born. Was living in Green County, Tennessee, at the time of the birth of his twin daughters Lydia and Jane.
    His Brother-in-law, Samuel Love, was declared in Green County court proceedings conducted in July 1838, to be a Revolutionary War Veteran who died intestate in 1804 or 1805 at the home of Thomas Love, in Green County. Similar proceedings in Fauquier County, Virginia, in July, 1835 list his heirs as a Brother and two Sisters : Thomas Love, Pamela who married Robert Warren and Pensathela, who married Richard Gill. Richard Gill was also a soldier in the revolution and apparently was living in Bertie County, North Carolina at the time of the 1790 census." Image.

Obituary:
Maryville Times, (Blount Co. TN) Wednesday, November 23, 1892:

"Gone To His Reward---Barton L. Warren, one of the oldest and most noted citizens of this section, died at his residence, Louisville, Tennessee. Mr. Warren was born in Virginia in the year 1800 and was consequently ninety-two years of age.

When seven years old he came with his father, a pioneer Methodist preacher, and eleven other children to Knoxville.  The older Warren settled on First Creek, near the river.

The subject of this sketch entered upon a successful business career at an early age, and at the outbreak of the war was the wealthiest man in Blount County, owning a vast estate and many slaves. To each of his children at the time of their marriage he gave a handsome sum to start them in life.

He has always been a kind neighbor, and willing at all times to lend a helping hand to those in need. The destitute never left his door empty handed.

Mr. Warren was well known as an active politician. As a Democrat he stood at the head of the list. He was an active worker for his party’s interest and voted the ticket from his majority up until the last election. At this he was too feeble to go to the polls, this being the only election that he missed since he came of age.

James K. Polk was a great favorite with the old gentleman. He gave an entertainment in honor of Polk at one time, to which he invited 500 people. They were bountifully fed.

Messrs. C.W. Steele and L.S. the well known real estate dealers of this city, are his grandsons and they speak in the highest terms of the old gentleman’s many good qualities.

He attended the Democratic rally just before the election in 1884. As the procession passed through Gay Street [Knoxville] he sat in front of the Hattie House and cheered as lustily as any young Democrat in the town.

The next morning as he bade Mr. C.W. Steele’s family good-bye he remarked with tears in his eyes: “I never expect to be in Knoxville again,” and he never was.

Mr. Warren is the last link in the neighborhood that connects the present generation with the long age.
He was a good citizen, lived to a good old age, and those who have so familiarly known “Barton” Warren in times gone by, will regret that the old landmark is gone, and will trust that his reward is sure. ---Knoxville Journal. Mr. Warren was the father of Mrs. W.M. Steele of this place.
