Joseph B. Holland Family

Joseph Holland was the son of Jacob Holland and Elizabeth Dabs.

Joseph B. Holland enlisted as a Private in Company A, 39th Georgia Infantry, a unit formed in Murray County, and usually referred to as the "Cohutta Rangers." The roll of April 30, 1864, showed he was still a member of that unit. He was captured by Union Army and took an oath to serve in that army rather than become a prisoner-of-war. He survived the war and returned to Murray County.

Joseph and Margaret had the following children:
