  • Notes 
    • "Martha married George Holland..... They lived on a farm near Laclede, Mo. for a while.

      "The Geo. Hollands made their first trip to Texas in 1868. They had three small children then - Janie, Henry and Lizzie. Edley Maxwell and family went with them.....

      "It was July and very hot. They traveled in covered wagons and suffered terribly from the heat - especially going through Kansas which was dry and barren, water scarce and few houses.

      "When they reached Calhoun, Henry Co., Mo. they stopped to visit the Mike Whitleys. Lutisha Whitley had recently married her cousin, Bill Maxwell, and they were living there too.

      "The Geo. Hollands came back to Mo. in July 1871. They stopped to see Edley Maxwell in Bates Co., then the Mike Whitleys in Henry County. They found them very said for Aunt Jane Whitley had just died.

      "The Hollands came on to Linn Co. and bought a farm mi. north of the Bruner School House, 2 mi. northeast of Laclede, Mo. They lived there four years.

      "In 1874 they sold their farm and went back to Texas. A railroad had been built and this time Martha and the children went on the train. Dock Maxwell and his wife Georgia went with them. George Holland drove through with a team and wagon.

      "They lived in Texas and raised their family there near Denison. Later they moved near Durant, Okla. - then the Indian Ter. In 1924 they moved to Arch, New Mexico where they lived the rest of their life."
