J.P. Holland Family

This photo is of the J. P. Holland family home in 

Monticello / Greenhill township.  It was taken about 



Standing at the gate are:

James Pinkney & Mattie Martha (Veasey) Holland with 3 

of their youngest children.  In Mattie Martha's arms is 

Dora Lexa Holland (b: 1897), standing between James P. 

& Mattie Martha is Lottie Dee Holland (b: 1891), standing 

& holding her arm over her eyes is Alberta Holland (b: 1895).  


Standing on the porch are:(left to right)

two unknown African American ladies; several people 

behind torn portion of photo (unknown)lady on far right 

on porch is probably Lula Holland (b: 1883)


Man on horse (unknown)


The James P. Holland family did not leave Drew Co. until 

after 1900 - when they migrated to Anderson and Cherokee 

Counties,  Texas.  Lottie Dee Holland married William H. 

Erwin in Jacksonville (Cherokee Co.) in 1911.  Which explains

my interest in both the ERWIN and HOLLAND families.
