Benjamin Holland

1Holland Family Records Compiled by Pat & James H. Holland, Provided to T.Mason in 1999. "Benjamin Holland came to America in the late 1750's and settled on the East Coast of Maryland. There he married an English lady by the name of Pruitt or Purter. The following story is told by his son, Thomas Holland who was born on December 24,1759 on the east coast of Maryland. The family went to Pittsylvania County, Virginia when he was a small lad and later into Montgomery county, Virginia. Benjamin Holland paid Tax on 400 Acres in Montgomery County, Va. in 1782, in the New River area.  We find Benjamin Holland in 1795 purchasing land on the North side of the French Broad River which at that time was Jefferson County, Tennessee. In 1810 we find Benjamin Holland receives 350 acres of land on a warrent in Del Reo, Tennessee and gives this land to his sons Thomas and John Holland. On the 1830 Cocke County, Tennessee census we find an old man that would be his age living in the household of his son, John Holland. It is felt that he died before Thomas Holland, his sons and their families and some of his brother's (John Holland) children left in the later part of 1833 to come to Clay County, Missouri.  Jacob Holland, was born in 1791 in Green County, Tennessee and married Elizabeth Warren and moved to Siever County, before coming to Missouri. He tells the story that there were seven brother who came to America from the Netherlands in the late 1750's, and six of the brothers went with the Colonist and one went with the British. He was driven into the Carolinia's. Some of the brothers and their sons went into the South Carolinia, Alabama and Mississippi. Some went into Virginia and into Kentucky it is belived. Many of these brother's sons were in the Revolution. Thomas Holland was living in Montgomery County, Virginia when the Revolutionary War started. Thomas, John, and Jacob Holland all joined the Virginia Troops in April 1781. Thomas was involved much earlier. We don't know all of Benjamin's children."

Nathaniel Christian

1FindaGrave.com, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/137119173. "It is believed that Nathaniel Christian might
be one of the indented grave sites marked with
flat large stones, in Horseshoe Cemetery in
Pembroke, Giles County, VA. Nathaniel
Christian died Feb 1779 from an Indian attack
while on a ammunitions run to the Forts with
Capt Stephen Trigg and the Virginia militia.
Information found in family journals of
grandson Thomas Ewing Christian. Nathaniel
Christian's family sold their "New River"
property to Christian Snidow after the death
of Nathaniel Christian. This line of the
Christian family then migrated to Greene/
Hawkins/Cocke County of Tennessee with
Nathaniel's brother Lewis Christian. Where
various land records proving this are found
in the Virginia archives and in Tennessee
records (which I have in my possession).

Witnesses on these land documents are
Stephen Trigg, Joseph Cloyd and James
McCorkle, who were in the Virginia Militia
with Nathaniel. Records state that the
Militia under Stephen Trigg, were support
against the Indians for the various Forts.
The sons Thomas, Isham, Anthony are on the
land documents along with widow Jane Christian.

Today various records are found in Cocke,
Hawkins, Greene, Maury, counties. On some of
these documents you'll see the family passed
down the names of Nathaniel and Jane, which
further prove this line migrated from the New
River valley to the Mountains of Tennessee,
then on to Atchison County, Missouri.

Married: Jane Adair b.1738 VA d.1790 Cocke
Co. TN(She is on property documents with
Anthony & Thomas in TN)

Children:
Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Christian 1755–1844
Thomas Christian 1758–1830
Isham Christian 1761–1811
Drucilla Christian 1763–1851
Agnes Christian 1768–1866
Anthony Christian 1770–1839." Image.


Dr Jacob Holland

1Holland Family Records Compiled by Pat & James H. Holland, Provided to T.Mason in 1999. "Records indicate that Jacob Holland and his son Robert W. Holland was one of the first settlers of Sullivan County Missouri in 1834 . On the 1840 Census for Lynn County Jacob and Family as well as Robert W. Holland who had married by this time were found living in Lynn County. Sullivan, Putnam and Lynn counties were all rezoned around 1839 or 40 . I do not feel they had moved but the Counties had been rezoned;  they had moved by the time of the 1850 Census.  At the time of the 1850 Census, Jacob's wife Elizabeth is living with her son John Holland & Wife, along with Isaac Holland, Edward W. Holland and Jacob & Elizabeth, daughter Elizabeth Holland (in Dodge County) now Putnam county, Missouri. Jacob had been to New Mexico to fight the Mexican's and was back in Platte County, Missouri in 1850. Records shows that Jacob Holland was in four wars, War of 1812, Blackhawk Indian War, Mexican War 1846-47, Civil war 1861-65 . Jacob Holland lived to be 95 Years of age and is Buried in the old Cemetery Maysville Mo.
    Jacob Holland was accompanied to Missouri by his sons Robert W. Holland, Robert Warren, James M. Warren, & Hugh C. Warren. These were Elizabeth Warren Holland's Brothers. I am sure that Benjamin and Nathaniel, Jacob's brothers who went on to Clay County Missouri, came from Tennessee. At this same time, Thomas Holland, who was married to Sally (Sarah ) Davis, and John J.Holland, who was married to Jane Nichols, I feel that they are Jacob brothers. Another Thomas Holland who was a cousin of Jacob Holland, this Thomas Married to Jane Stokely was the son of John and Mary Holland.  John Holland son Christopher Columbus Holland who was born is Jackson township Buchanan County Missouri in 1837 states that his Grandparents was Thomas and Mary (Boydston) Holland, who was the Revolution war Thomas Holland that Came to Clay County, Missouri in early 1834.

"These four Holland brothers were the sons of Dr. Jacob HOLLAND (24 Dec 1791 TN-12 Jan 1887 MO) and his wife Elizabeth WARREN (1796 TN-1 834) of the historic Warren family of Virginia, whose ancestors can be traced back to William the Conqueror. Jacob and Elizabeth were married in March 1810 in Green County, Tennessee. Her father was Robert WARREN (1742 M-1826 TN), her mother Pamelia LOVE.
    The children of Jacob and Elizabeth were: 1. Robert William (1796-1868); 2. Frances (b 1814); 3. Permelia (18171868) who married # 1. Peter TAYLOR and #2. William DALY/DALEY (b 1802); 4.

Elizabeth (b 1838) married Hiram HERING.
    Jacob HOLLAND was a corporal in the War of 1812 for six months in 1814 in the Tennessee drafted militia against the Creek Indians under General Andrew JACKSON, for which he was awarded 80 acres of bounty land. He also served in the Mexican War from July 1846 to September 1847 as a corporal with the Missouri mounted volunteers. He was wounded 6 July 1846 at a grazing camp near Taos, New Mexico. A bullet lodged in his left arm and remained there rendering the arm stiff and useless for farm work. He received a pension of $8 a month for the injury until his death. In his discharge papers he was described as 50 years of age, 6' 1 " tall, with fair complexion, blue eyes and sandy hair.
    The family had moved from Tennessee to Missouri about 1834/35. Jacob HOLLAND died at the home of his daughter, Drucilla CUNNINGHAM, and is buried in the Old Maysville Cemetery, Maysville, Missouri. His headstone states that he served in four wars, the War of 1812, Mexican War, 1861 War between the North and South and the Indian War."

3Holland, Edward Warren - Autobiography (Tulare City Historical Society, December 1987). "My father's father, Jacob Holland, was born in Virginia Feb- 5, 1791 and died at Maysville, DeKalb County, Missouri in Sept. 1890, being 100 yrs. old. He fought in the war of 1812 under General Andrew Jackson of Tennessee since he resided in that state when the war broke out. He was also in the U. S. Army in the Mexican War under General Taylor. Four of his oldest were also in the Mexican war in the same company as their father. He had 2 sons in the Union Army during the Civil war and 2 in the Confederate forces fighting a lost cause under General Hood, in the Texas brigade."

On the 1840 Census for Lynn County Jacob and Family as well as Robert W. Holland who had married by this time were found living in Lynn County. Sullivan, Putnam and Lynn counties were all rezoned around 1839 or 40 . I do not feel they had moved but the Counties had been rezoned;  they had moved by the time of the 1850 Census.  At the time of the 1850 Census, Jacob's wife Elizabeth is living with her son John Holland & Wife, along with Isaac Holland, Edward W.

"The 1856 Miners and Business Mens Directory for Tuolumne County shows three Holland brothers, Thomas, E. W. (Edward) and John, all miners from Missouri, living in Saw Mill Flat. The 1850 federal census has listed Thomas only, 28, a laborer from Missouri. On 29 November 1858 a Capt. Holland lead the Saw Mill Flat Infantry in the parade celebrating the completion of the Columbia and Stanislaus Water Company ditch.
    In the 1860 census two of the brothers, Thomas, 34, born in Tennessee, and E. W., 26, born in Missouri, are living at Saw Mill Flat. John, Thomas' twin brother, is gone, but brother Isaac has joined them, living in Columbia with his family. Isaac, 27, a miner, was born in Tennessee. His wife, Amanda, 27, was born in Missouri and their three children, Hiram, 6, Edward, 5, and 8-month-old Mary are listed as being born in Missouri, but it is more likely that Mary was born in California."

In the 1850's, John Holland listed as head of the house. John is listed on the 1840''s census with the family in Linn County, Missouri. Edward W. also went to Columbia California in Tuolumne, County.
