One of the many joys of genealogy research is the journey it takes you on, and especially the people you meet. One such joy was meeting my cousins, Angela and Ron and family – for the very first time, earlier this year!
Thomas Hampton Holland was my 2nd ggrand-uncle – his brother Buford Holland was my 3rd ggrandfather.
The treasures below were kindly shared with us. Thank you to Angela!!!

My cousin Angela Claire Holland was named after Ansel Clair Holland
Cousin Angela was blessed to be able to meet these great ladies! Mrs. Pitts is the inspiration for this very website, her research started everything genealogy and history for me.
