This month’s featured page is on the little Holland Cemetery. Although the site is in abandoned, and in terrible shape, it is still there, and not forgotten. I have to admit I cried a little, upon finding my 5th great-grandparents, Thomas Rutledge Holland and Jane Adair Holland. As a Revolutionary War Veteran, Thomas deserves better.
Another reference to Old Zoar Chapel, which I believe to have been on this site:

ABRAHAM HOLLAND FAMILY by: C. Bryan Holland
“I am of the line of Abraham’s son, Thomas Holland, Sr. (1762-1815). He married Jane Adair, daughter of Joseph Adair, Jr. and Sarah Dillard. Thomas and Jane were the parents of five daughters and one son, Thomas R. Jr. Thomas and Jane Holland are buried in Old Zoar Chapel Cemetery on the hill south of Duncan’s Creek.
The marble tablet placed by Musgrove Mills and Henry Laurens chapters DAR, in 1926, on the front wall of Duncan’s Creek Presbyterian Church lists names of sixteen men who served in the Revolutionary War. Included in this list: Joseph Adair, Sr., Joseph Adair, Jr., James Adair, John Copeland, and Thomas Holland.”
