It all Comes Together
Researching the Ancestors is a Puzzle that Connects
High Shoals Lands Owned by Holland Families
Finding the ancestors can be a lifetime hobby. But it is so worth it! One of the most rewarding things is visiting an old relative. It is surprising how much they remember.
When I visited my Aunt Mary (someone I had never met), my heart was filled with joy. What an experience—-hearing it firsthand! Aunt Mary was a distant relative who lived in the country. Her life encompassed the Victorian Era of the late 1800s and was stationary in her personality far up in the old Indian fields on a north Georgia farm. When her parents first moved into that region, they considered finding some Cherokee gold!
For years, while visiting the old Holland homeplaces on High Shoals Road in Dallas, Georgia, I was informed that the occupants were bent on preserving the old farms. They did not want it to be developed! Yippee!!
After years of the prompting of potential developers, unfortunately, the acreage was finally sold and divided into subdivisions.
My! Time does pass.
