HOLLAND, MCKINNEY posted by Susan Holland on Wednesday, January 21, 2004

My husband is from Red Bay (James Earnest Holland)and I was wondering if there was any information about his family history as he does not know alot of the names of relatives outside of the grandparents. Apparantly, his grandfather had 17 brothers, so it was hard to keep track. My husband's father's name was also James Holland and his mother's was Willie McKinney Holland. If there is any information available about either side or both, it would be much appreciated!
