My Basil poss b 1755 from Laurens Co SC had wife Margaret.His will dated 1825,pr 1829 lists ch John,Elenor(mar Benj Wilson),Sarah/Sally(m James Wilson)Richard,James,Rachel(Dees/Deeson)Abraham,Basil2,Nancy and mentions later Jeremiah(maybe elder son???).Lived Lower Donaldson C. ,I was born on Donaldson Ck at "old Holland place".Never meant anything to me and do not know which Holland but it is interesting NOW. James Wilson was s/o John, my line of which Benjamin was also.James had son Abel Olive Wilson(a Mr Abel Olive was also early there fromSC)and there is some connection there. Abel O Wilson is buried on hillside lower Donaldson and Maple Grove Road very near where those people settled on Craigs Branch.Benj Wilson land grant 1803(in the Edison Thomas Book). Somewhere ? probably on a CD I copied one Abraham Holland from MD who had some children to SC and whose children were Rachel,Basil,Wm,Mary,Thos,Resin,Richard,Jeremiah and Sarah.Sure looks like mine.Abrahams father Capell Holland and wife Katherine Eldridge.Wonder if Capell would be Cabel,just a thought. I am under impression the other Hollands in Trigg from Va or other than SC
Since my EKA was John Wilson, I find it nearly hopeless to date,find many in SC and in every other area of the universe.
