We were sorry to hear of the death of Mrs. Holland mother of Mrs. Jefferson.  Mrs. Holland lived with her daughter for a number of years, and will be greatly missed.

McGuire’s Crossing.

Mrs. Martha Holland, nee Lindsey, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Jas. A. Jefferson, on the 3rd inst.  She was in her seventy-ninth year and was highly esteemed by all who knew her.  She was born and raised in this State and in early life was married to Chesly Holland, who preceded her to the grave some twelve or fifteen years.  One peculiar trait of her character was that she was never known to lose her temper or become the least angry.  Three of her children, Mrs. Jefferson, Mrs. Wilson and Mr. Webb Holland, reside in this county.  Her sons, Moses live in Texas and Abraham in Illinois.  She had twenty nine grandchildren and twenty nine great grandchildren and they all loved her.
