Selected Families and Individuals


John Anthony Holland

NOTE: Birth in Halifax county which is now Pittsylvania county, Virginia.

CONFLICT-ERROR: Angie Wood wrote T.Mason on 11 Sep 2002 that "John Holland that married Mary Wise was the ancestor of John Holland, Jr. who married Ruth Blaylock in Haywood Co. in 1827 in Haywood Co., Zillah (probably Priscilla) who married Jesse Kinsland in 1827, and James Holland who married Frances Meese in 1817. John died Nov. 15, 1829 in Haywood Co. and Mary continued living there until her death in early 1853. At the present time, we can only account for two sons.. John Jr. and James, and one daughter, Priscilla. The Tennessee Hollands and the ones located in Haywood may be related, but the Tennessee Hollands are not the children of John and Mary Wise Holland."

DESCENDANTS: Records of all descendants provided by Dianne Holland Jones.

He was in the War of 1812 in General Cocke command against the Creek Indians. His house was burned by Indians when he was a small boy in VA.

Dr. James Cesear Pitchford

RESEARCHER: Dianne King wrote T.Mason on 7Jul2001 that Per conversation with Corda Summer Sides, Okemah, OK that Dr. James C. Pitchford followed the oil bomb. James C. was an apprentice in the newspaper business. James C. & his wife Laura were learning medicine while in Chickasaw I.T. (Pontotoc Co.,) Laura & Dona Fenter were friends in (Pontotoc Co., I.T.). Laura lived only a few days after the burning accident she told James that Dona would be a good mother to her children. James C. Pitchford drank a lot & was cruel to Dona & the 3 older children. He adored his daughter Fannie (only child born to James C. & Dona). When Fannie was older but, still in school, she and some friends were downtown when her father came up with liquor in a brown paper sack. He dropped and broke the bottle. Fannie was so embarrssed and upset, her father never drank again. Dr. Pitchford appears to have left the practice of medicine in Morseat the end of March, 1914. At least, that is the last recorded birth/death record turned in my him. After a few months, another Dr. was turning in paperwork for the Morse area.

Laura Edna Cross

RESEARCHER: Dianne King wrote T.Mason on 7Jul2001 that Per conversation with granddaughter Erma Pitchford Hubbard, Cleveland, OK. that Laura Cross had a brother living in Bonham, Fannin Co., TX and they came this way from KY looking for work. Census shows her father Bryan was born in Scottsville, KY? Dr. Pitchford was very cruel to Bryan and blamed him for the burning death of his mother (Laura) Bryan at age 11 ran away. Pontotoc, Chickasaw, I.T.
