Elizabeth Juliette Holland

F, #1355, b. 31 January 1858, d. 25 May 1960
JULIETTE HOLLAND PURSER
Father*John Jasper Holland b. 7 Sep 1837, d. 1862
Mother*Josephine Donaldson b. 8 Nov 1842, d. 19 May 1907
Birth*31 January 1858 Elizabeth Juliette Holland was born on 31 January 1858 at Pulaski County, GA, Exact date shown on her death certificate. However, the death certificate gives her parent's names as Joseph Holland and Sara Elizabeth Donaldson. Both are incorrect. (see her father's will).1 
 She was the daughter of John Jasper Holland and Josephine Donaldson
MARRIAGE2*30 April 1876 She was married for the second time on 30 April 1876; "She married Green Purser" - Annette F. Kaplan
Date of marriage from Kent Pusser.
This was the second marriage for Pryor Green Purser, just eight weeks after the death of his first wife, Martha Mullis, (10/20/1828-3/8/1876). Martha died one week after the birth of her daughter, Sarah Pusser, (3/1/1876-9/25/1970).2 
Burial*1960 She was buried in 1960 at Salem Cemetery, Bleckley County, GA, "Aunt Juliet Purser, Grandpa Holland's sister married Green Purser and in the cemetery at Salem is where I found her grave, and also Grandpa Holland's grave, and some of the other Purser names are spelled "Pusser" in that same cemetery."- I visited Aunt Juliette Purser on numerous occasions with Virginia Lee, daughter of Vera Lee (Purser) Aunt Juliette's daughter. She lived in Cochran and she had a beautiful sideboard in the dining room that would be worth a fortune today as an antique! Aunt Juliette was quite elderly and Virginia and I were both quite young when we visited her grandmother so I do not remember very much beyond going. I probably never had a conversation with her. Shug would have visited her as an adult as she and Vera were about the same age I believe. - Annette F. Kaplan.3,1
Death*25 May 1960 She died on 25 May 1960 at Bleckely County, GA, at age 102 She lived to be 102 years old. Her exact date of death is shown on her death certificate. However, the parents listed on the death certificate are wrong. Not surprising as whoever gave the information could have made a mistake given Julietter's age.1 
CENSUS1870*1870 She appeared on the census in 1870 at Pulaski County, GA..4 
Married Name30 April 1876  As of 30 April 1876,her married name was Purser.2 
CENSUS1880*1880 She appeared on the Census in 1880 at GA; She appears on the census with her husband.2 
CENSUS1930*1930 She appeared on the census in 1930 at Bleckley County, GA.5 
Biography*2002  I visited Aunt Juliette Purser on numerous occasions with Virginia Lee, daughter of Vera Lee (Purser) Aunt Juliette's daughter. She lived in Cochran and she had a beautiful sideboard in the dining room that would be worth a fortune today as an antique. Aunt Juliette was quite elderly and Virginia and I were both quite young when we visited her grandmother so I do not remember very much beyond going. I probably never had a conversation with her. Shug would have visited her as an adult as she and Vera were about the same age I believe. Virginia, I believe has died. Bob, her brother might still be alive. He was a little younger. Some way Aunt Juliette Purser was related to Raymond Dykes. He always referred to her as Granny Juliette. Ask LaVerne about this. She might know something from Raymond's mother. I seem to have a vague recollection of the name Causey but can't pinpoint yet. (Note from AFK in 2002.)

MARRIAGE* James B. Holland Jr. married Louisa M. (?)2 
Birth*circa 1801 He was born circa 1801 at SC.3,4 
 He was the son of James Holland Sr. 
MARRIAGE*31 December 1819 He married Charity Barefoot, daughter of Noah Barefoot Sr., on 31 December 1819 at Pulaski County, GA.. 
Death*15 January 1875 He died on 15 January 1875 at Holland Cemetery, Pulaski County, GA., Tombstone says he died at age 75. Here are directions to Holland cemetery: From Cochran go toward Dublin on highway 26 about six miles to emergency road 435 on right. Take 435 about 3 miles and cemetery in in field on left and can be seen from the road. It is an active cemetery.5
Name Variation  James B. Holland Jr. was also known as James Holland. 
CENSUS1820*1820 He appeared on the census in 1820; He is shown on the census with a young wife and no children. This fits great. 
JURY*1823 He was served on jury He is shown on the Petit July list as James Jr. in 1823. 
LAND GRANT*1827 He was received land grant He drew # 189 in the 12th dist.in Scarborough's district. in 1827.6 
CENSUS1830*1830 He appeared on the census in 1830 at Pulaski County, GA; He is shown as expected on the census but there is only one female under 5 and there should be two females almost the same age. The marks on the census page are very clear.7 
MILITARY*1 July 1831  On 1 July 1831 at GA James is listed as 1st. Lieutenant in the 387th Dist G.M. He served until March 10 1836. He served in the same company as Shadrack Floyd the son of Fed and Mourning. 
Milit-End*10 March 1836 He ended military service on 10 March 1836 at GA; Military service 1: March 4, 1862, Muster Roll, GA Militia, Pulaski Co, GA; Military service 2: July 1, 1831, Enlist 1st LT, 387th Dist, Pulaski Co, GA; Military service 3: March 10, 1836, Disch. 1st LT, 387th Dist, Pulaski Co, GA.8 
CENSUS1840*1840 He appeared on the census in 1840 at GA; Not a perfect match for the 1850, but very close. Moses is the male 5-10, James J. and Ephraim are the males 10-15 and daughter Eliza if the female 15-20. Unaccounted for is the female age 5-10.9 
CENSUS1850*1850 He appeared on the CENSUS in 1850 at GA. 
CENSUS1860*1860 He appeared on the census in 1860 at GA; He is living with wife Louisa M. with Mary age 31 shown as deaf and dumb and Robert Bates age 14 (no relationship given) and Charity age 2. His son Moses lives next door. Since Moses has three young children I suspect that Charity is his young child being cared from by her grandfather and grandfather's new wife.2
LANDCONTRA*2 October 1866 He purchased land on 2 October 1866 at GA James sold land in District 21 lot 21 and its recorded in deed book P. Note says further lot 68 owned by John Holland (his brother). 
CENSUS1870*1870 He appeared on the census in 1870 at GA; Census shows him living with two females Eliza and Mary both age 40 and a Charity age 13. I suspect that Eliza is (Louisa) from the 1860 census. Mary could be her sister as she was shown as deaf and dumb on the 1860 census. I suspect Charity was a grandaughter. Probably she's the daughter of his son Moses who apparently was left a widower with four young children.10
Becky and I have come to believe that the two forty yeard females are twin daughters of James B. This makes one wonder who the young Charity is since the twins are shown as deaf and dumb and probably didn't marry.

MARRIAGE* James J. Holland married Louisa M. (?)1 
Birth*1833 He was born in 1833 at GA.1 
 He was the son of James B. Holland Jr. and Charity Barefoot.1 
CENSUS1860*1860 He appeared on the census in 1860 at Pulaski, GA; James, son of James B. did not appear on the 1850 census with his father. However, in 1860 he appears as head of household that includes Louisa M. age 31, Mary age 31, Charity age 2 and Robert Bates.
Mary was shown on the 1850 census living with James B. and she was shown as deaf and dumb. I don't know if Louisa M. is the same as the Elizabeth living in James B. Holland's home in 1850, but the age suggest she was. Therefore, I think that son James set up household and took in his sisters Elizabeth 9Louisa) and Mary. In addition I think that James, son, took in Charity age 2 who apparently was the daughter of his brother Moses. Moses had a housefull of children and no wife so I expect James and sisters were looking after her.2

CENSUS1790*1790 He appeared on the census in 1790 at Pendleton, SC; The 1790 census shows four adult males. Jacob born about 1759, James born at 1766, Thomas born about 1767 and Moses born about 1765. I suspect one of these is ours and have chosen James as the name fits the family pattern. Moses never left South Carolina and his will has been found on line dated 1829 in S.C. One of his children is Chesley who migrated to Georgia.

Father*John Jasper Holland b. 7 Sep 1837, d. 1862
Mother*Josephine Donaldson b. 8 Nov 1842, d. 19 May 1907
ChartsAnnie Jane Holland
Birth*12 November 1860 Jesse Jasper Holland was born on 12 November 1860 at Pulaski County, GA. 
 He was the son of John Jasper Holland and Josephine Donaldson
MARRIAGE*16 October 1881 He married Mary Orliffie Bryant, daughter of Thomas Bryant and Margarette Mullis, on 16 October 1881 at GA.1 
MARRIAGE*8 June 1893 He married Mary Lou Vinson, daughter of Joseph F. Vinson and Josephine E. Griffin, on 8 June 1893. 
Divorce*circa 1893 He and Mary Orliffie Bryant were divorced circa 1893 at GA. 
MARRIAGE*1907 He married Mary J. (?) in 1907 at Irwin, GA; On the census it appears that his wife's name was Mary J. and her occupation was school teacher.
Note from Becky Nagle I double checked my census – JJ wasn’t in Wilkinson County with the new wife in 1910 – he was in Irwin County which was 3 counties south of Pulaski and 4 counties south of Bleckley.
His wife was teaching in Irwin and he rented a farm.
I’d love to find that marriage record, but where to look?? He married after 6 SEP 1905 (Mary Lou Vinson’s death date) and on the 23 MAY 1910 census date, it stated that they had been married 3 years…which puts the marriage date between 1906-1907. Let’s say he was ‘courting’ right after Mary Lou’s death - 1905-1906.
Here’s the question… Do you know if between 1905-1907 he was still farming away in GA or had he started his migration to the Florida everglades? I remember Shug saying that he dropped off Duckie, Florence and Bubba with the Floyds to live while Jesse and my grandfather took off – but when?
Mary J. was born in Georgia, so it’s not likely he met her and married in Florida. Do you think it is more likely that a teacher in Irwin Co. was ‘home-grown’ – hiring one of their ‘own’ to teach? Becky.2 
MARRIAGE*1929 He married Siddie Holland, daughter of Moses Holland and Mary A.E. Dykes, in 1929 at Pulaski County, GA., According to Annette Floyd Kaplan: Miss Siddie Bradley was a neighbor of ours who lived about a mile and a half from mama and Papa. Grandpa Holland married her in his old age while living with us. They were not married for very long when he came back to stay with Mama and Papa where he stayed until the time of his death. 
Death*17 January 1934 He died on 17 January 1934 at Bleckley County, GA, at age 73 His grandaughter, Annette, tells of his death. He was ill and confined to bed at his daughter Annie's home. He was so dispondent over his illness that he shot himself with his son-in-law's gun.3
Jessie Jasper's Death Certificate
Obituary25 January 1934 Obituary of Jesse Jasper Holland:; Mr. J.J. Holland dies by Own Hand
Sad was the death of Mr. J.J. Holland, who took his own life last week on January 18th by shooting himself. It is thought that ill health prompted the act, as he made threats to that effect about a month previous to his death. He had reached the age of 73 years and was a constant sufferer of troubles that drove him to his death.
Mr. Holland had always been held in the highest respect by friends everywhere. He was always good, kind, and thoughtful of others and a very useful man in his community. He spent practically all of his life in the community around Cochran, with the exception of a few years in Florida and other places.
Funeral services were held at Salem Baptist church on Friday following his death the day before. The house was filled with sorrowing relatives and friends who mourn his going as an incurable grief. Revs. G. Reid Smith and Ralph Moore, pastors of the two local churches in Cochran officiated. An impressive song service was rendered with the Bleckley County Quartette cooperating.
T. W. Fisher and son were the local funeral directors in charge of arrangements.
Surviving are five daughters: Mrs. A. R. Floyd and Mrs. J.E. Floyd of Cochran; Mrs. Homer Waters, of Fitzgerald; Mrs. R. M. Kemp of Palmetto, and Mrs. Billy Wadlen of DeFuniak Springs, Florida; one son, Mr. J.J. Holland, Jr. of Los Angeles and one sister Mrs. Juliette Purser, of Cochran; one half brother, Mr. Will Causey, Alimo (Alma) and one half sister, Mrs. Mattie Sikes, of Cochran.
The pall bearers were Messers. J.K. Holland, Jack Barlow, J.T. Berryhill, J.I Davidson, J. F. Barlow and Wilbur Smith.
The Cochran Journal, Thursday, January 25, 1934 page 1A Column 6
Film AN13, C67C6
Note from Annette regarding author of obituary:
After two or three very careful readings of it, I am convinced that Mama was not the source of the information as she would not have known that Uncle Jay was in Los Angeles, nor would she have known Aunt Rubye's husband's name or that she lived in Defuniak Springs and she would not have been able to spell it if she had known, My conclusion is that it was written either by Aunt Juliette Purser or her daughter, Vera Lee who had this info.
As to the pall bearers' Yes, I knew them all J.K Holland would have been Kennie Holland, father of Mary and LaVerne's friend DorothyHolland. No relation to us so far as I ever knew.Jack Barlow, a neighbor who lived on the road not too far from where Morris now lives. Wayne's son
now owns that property and lives in the Barlow house; J.T Berryhill I believe to have been Lucian and Bob's grandfather, Mr Buck Berryhill, we can check them on his name.J. I Davidson was Mr. Ira Davidson father of Jimmie Simpson, I believe; J. F. Barlow would have been James Barlow, husband of Aunt Juliette Floyds daughter, Ruby. and Wilbur Smith would have been Littlebud Smith. All of these men were our neighbors and lived very close around where we lived.
Another rational on Aunt Juliette Purser being the source is because she would have close knowledge of the Causey children that Mama might possibly not have had. Alimo Georgia could easily be Alma--not far from Cochran.

Name Variation1934  As of 1934, Jesse Jasper Holland was also known as "Buddy" Holland Name taken from cemetery record. 
Anecdote*2002  In 2002 Here are accounts of Jesse's death and burial according to three grandchildren. My Memory tells me he was buried with Granny (Orliffy)because no one wanted to pay for a burial plot because Grandpa (Jesse Jasper) had never done anything to help Mama and Aunt Julliette during their entire life and he came back to our house for Mama to see after only after he was old and no one else would have him. Yes, Papa got upset because Aunt Florence and them did not pay a penny towards his funeral yet they were unhappy over where he was buried and wanted to exhume and move him beside their mother and Papa said he would not pay a penny to help move him. Yes, I do believe they did move him. That's all I know. Above from Mary Floyd El-Khadem
Here is LaVerne Floyd Dykes recollection: think you are right about grandpa I don't remember the funeral but I do remember when he died and I remember hearing Mama and them talking about them moving him. I don't think any one of them came to the funeral and they just came and moved him. Here are Annette's memory of the event: Aunt Shug told me on Satrday before she died that Grandpa was buried with Grany. His obit says he was buried at Salem; Granny is in the Bryant plot at Trail Branch cemetery according to Joe Bbryant but her grave is umarked. Becky, or MA check the county records on the exhumation and reburial of Grandpa next to Miss Mary Lou and the two infants. I remember hearing them talk about burying him with their mother and the babies. We need this point clarified for the record, Prior to speaking to Shug, I thought he had been buried at Salem initially as I remembered a tree out there next to where he was buried. Love Annette
Joe Bryant was Annie's first cousin and son or grandson of Granny"s brother and was a preacher at bothTrail Branch and Mt Horeb..
Here is Rebecca Nagel's summation of the affair: Well, it seems that it is the consensus of all that Jesse's grave was moved. I'm sure that the Big "B" took matters into her hands and most likely used Florence and Duckie/Eva to back her up (bribery can make the most innocent do the unspeakable!)...Rubye was the only one who had the money to do it and the only one who would of thought of such a selfish and heartless act!!!
More from Annette:(It seems strange that he would have a funeral at Salem and then be buried at Trail Branch.Perhaps he was buried both times at Salem.) I believe he was buried originally at Salem and that Shug;s memory about him being buried with Granny is in error, I know Ruby, Florence and Eva had him moved for I remember MAMA SAYING SHE DID NOT CARE WHERE THEY BURIED HIM.
