The following story about Martin and Rosille was written by Ethel Taylor (Research Source: Cora Burton):

"The Holland Wagon Train Trip from Campton Ky to Texas & back to places in Ar [Arkansas], as passed down - By Word of Mouth from Martin Holland & Wife Rossilla to Daughter Lou Alice Holland-Taylor and her oldest Daughter Bertha Rosillia - Who stayed with her Grandparents Martin & Rosillia a [unreadable] By Word of Mouth this Information was passed down to me (Ethel Taylor) Daughter-inlaw of Lou Alice Holland Taylor - It appears that Rosillia gave most of this Info - She stated that Morning they left Campton. She ws up Early & Cooked Breakfast - had it on the table - "[unreadable] they had their wagon loaded & team hitched & waiting" - Martin Came in - said - the (wagons) are here - load up - boys - (Harrison and Weslie) She picked up the Baby Lou Alice - they all grabbed Biscuits and Left - Said - The Baby had pr [pair] of New Shoes sitting on Bottom stairs step - That she forgot in her haste - Left things just sitting in house with Breakfast on table . Left a fine [unreadable] Mare in Stable. No Info about their journey to Texas, or just What timeof yr [year] they Left Campton or When they arrived in Texas. But according to all Wagon Trains going West - They Tried to Leave as Early in Spring as they could - So they Could get where they were going Before Cold Weather. To the Best of My Knowledge - Using Birth dates - ages - and Date of Letter - From Andrew Jackson Holland Sr. When he was abt [about] to leave Jacksbore Tex [Texas] going Back to Ky (I think) The Wagon Train left Campton - Ky Early Spring of 1976 [sic 1876] - Arrived at Jacksbore - Tex [Texas] abt [about] Sept. of 1976 [sic 1876] And Started Back in May of 1977 [sic 1877]. Things Rosillia Told Daughter Lou Alice & Granddaughter Bertha abt [about] Texas - Stated the Wild grass there was Belly High to the Horses - that the wind there Blowed Hard all time - And it was dry - very little rain. And having lived 17 yrs in the West Tex area around Big Spring - Sweet water & Lamesa - also traveled around over a Large area North Central part of State & as Close as [unreadable] of Jacksborne. I am sure all of these Statements ab [about] Tex [Texas] was true - And at that Date most all of that area - Jacksborne, Gralon [?], Stampford, Harkell, Seymore was (Open Range Country). A few years later it Became (Large Fenced Ranches) also some large Farms, that mostly Raised Cotton, Maize, few other small Grains. So Dry & Windy that all it would gow. Statements from Martin & Rosillia when they started Back to Ky - they said Camped for the Night."

The following story , "Wagon Train" written by an uknown author in 1984, is about Martin and Rosille:

"In either 1875 or 1876 about five families of Hollands who were all farming in Kentucky decided to join a wagon train headed for California. It is known that at one time before the Civil War the Hollands owned two-thirds of Wolfe County, Kentucky. Uncle Mart, his wife and children, Wesley, Harrison, and Lou Alice then three years old, were about to eat their breakfast when the wagon train pulled up. Rossille later recalled to her granddaughter, Bertha, how Mart didn't give them time to eat. He said to get the kids and go. She picked up Lou and left a new pair of shoes sitting on the stair step and Mart left a fine breed mare standing in the stable. Also known to be on the same wagon train with them were Mart's father and mother, several brothers including Elisha and wife, Sarah, and probably one sister. It is unknown how many familes or different families were on it but it is estimated the Hollands were maybe two years on the road before eventually settling in Arkansas. It is passed down that Lou Alice remembers her dad telling her in 1930 when he (Uncle Mart) was 104 years old and visited Texas, the wagon train stopped close to Dallas and camped in the Trinity River bottom and the river was dry. While they were camped there they were robbed by white masked men. The robbers took all the men's money including Uncle Mart's. Some of the women had money hidden on themselves and he remembered Sarah and Elisha's money. Some of the familes that didn't have any money to continue to California stayed there and founded a part of what is now Dallas. Although one of the Holland families must have stayed, the others decided to return to Kentucky. When this small wagon train reached Washington County, Arkansas, Mart's father, Jack and family decided to remain there. Mart and Lish and their families continued on to Mountain Home, Baxter County, Arkansas. Lish and Sarah's last known child, Mollie, was born in 1879 in Arkansas. Soon thereafter Lish, Sarah, and all their children except the oldest son, Taylor Holland, went back to Kentucky. Taylor married Sallie Faut on December 17, 1891, and moved before or after that to Oklahoma to settle and raise his family there. Mart and Rossille also had a child born in 1879. William Franklin was born on the fifteenth of November in Mountain Home. They also had twin boys (or girls Arminnnie & Armannie?) born in Baxter County and both died when they were small. They are buied at the Hort Cemetery on the Old Highway 5 - southeast of Mt. Home on the James Baker place. A son Floyd Lonzo born in February, 1888, and their last child a daughter, Julia Ann born on January 24, 1891, concluded their family of six children. Although just a farmer, Uncle Mart made a name for himself in Baxter County. He took the first ride in the first airplane to visit there and is said to have been "tough as a pine knot." In 1904 when he was 78 years old, it is told he turned his wagon over hitting his hed against a tree and tossing the wagon over his body. No one thought he would get well, but he did - and without a doctor. In 1920 at the age of 94, he had the measels. Although near death at one time he didn't give up and did get well. His loving wife of surely some fifty years took the measels and died two weeks later on March 16, 1920, at the age of 85 years. Uncle Mart visited Texas ten years later in 1930. Family in Trinidad remember him coming and often recall their fond memories of him. He passed away March/May 27, 1937, and is buried beside Rossille in the Douglas Cemetery, Baxter County, Arkansas. He was 111 years old and set a Baxter County longevity record that possibly has never been matched. Mart's daughter, Lou Alice, married John Riley Taylor on October 8, 1889. Mr Taylor was the son of Jesse Lee and Charlote Green Taylor and was born on Christmas in 1865, in Arkansas. Being from the vicinity of Mt. Home, Mart must have known him but it is a fact that Lou's brother Henry Harrison helped her slip out of a window at night and elope. Differences were settled because John and Lou had eleven children all born in Moutain Home before moving to Texas in 1920. That year a family friend, Harve Parks, living in Trinidad, Texas, came to Arkansas to get workers to go back with him to pick a huge cotton crop there. Aunt Ethel Arnett Taylor remembers them moving the first part of September and her own family followed two weeks later. She was eight years old and says they came on the train. She remembers all of the Taylor children except Jessie and Bertha moved at that time. Once in Texas she can recall the other children talking about their brother in Arkansas. The Taylor's fifth child, William Lessie, passed away the winter before moving. John liked Texas and decided to stay and a year or so later Jessie came. Aunt Ethel married John and Lou Alice's eighth child, Ira Everett Taylor, on May 11, 1929. She knew of him in Arkansas but doesn't really remember seeing him until he was 13 or 14 years old and running middles in the corn field in Texas. He went home for lunch and later came to get the horse at the neighbors - the Collins. Neither knew the other was there. After picking up two handfuls of mulberries from under a tree, he sat on a tool box on the Collin's front porch eating them when she went out the door and stopped "dead in my tracks". He looked up and offered, "Do you want a mulberry?" She said no and backed inside and later asked the Collin's kids who he was. During the next four or five years she saw him several times but never really went out. In January, 1927, he was spending the night at his sister Linnie's house and he and her son John were writing letters to girls. Everett wrote Ethel and they began passing letters through different family members before actually mailing them. He asked her to marry him in a letter and she answered the same way. He planned to rent some land to farm from his dad but when John Riley wouldn't agree, Everett hired on to drive a truck of cord wood back and forth to Dallas. On Easter Sunday, 1929, Ethel went to an egg hunt and Everett cam back over to her Uncle Oslo's with her afterwards and told her about his job. They decided in three or four weeks to get married. On Saturday, May 11th, Everett's sister Linnie had twins who lived only a short time. Ethel and her mother went to see her. Not knowing Everett was looking for her, she went next to her Aunt Julie's house and then back to Linnie's to get some milk. Once at Julie's, Everett learned Ethel was at Linnie's so he finally found her and asked if she wanted to get married that very evening. She said yes and they agreed to meet at Oslo and Julie's house. Ethel was only 17 so Oslo planned to go with them and lie saying he was a witness to her being 18. Trying to leave, the car had a flat so they drove the cord wood truck to Ethel's where she changed and left a note. Her mother knew of her plans but her dad didn't. The three came to Athens and the Justice of the Peace married them. The next day Oslo and Julie fixed a Sunday dinner and had the whole family over to celebrate with them. Aunt Ethel remembers Everett went out with Martha Cleo Rogers before his brother Jessie did. Jessie only went with her two or three months before they married. Concerning Evertt and Jessie's marriage: The new Texas state law of requiring a blood text before being able to get a marriage license was about to be enforced. People didn't understand just what was involved in submitting to this test and were afraid of it. The story goes that Jessie gave Everett $20.00 or so to marry first to see if he had to take a blood test and if so what it was like. Everett was happy to tell him he didn't have to take on and three days later Jessie married Martha on May 14, 1929. The brother's sister, Ethel Fay married Ernest Jock in the fall of September 14, 1929. Out of eleven children all of them had now married and left home except Ada and Dersey who were 17 and 14 and Betty who was living with her married sister Ivy Nall because of a spat with John Riley. Everett and Ethell had two daughters, Nellie and Bessie, and lost a baby daughter Essie, before moving from Trinidad to west Texas to find work. A fourth child, Gail, was born in 1944 in Lamesa, Texas. That same year he went to work as a mechanic in Colorado City. When he returned to Athens in 19 he worked for Red Waller in Malakoff at the Ferguson tractor dealer and then hired on with Sam Powell at the Ford tractor dealer in Athens. He worked a total of 26 years in the tractor mechanic trade before retiring. They make their home in Athens and at the present in 1984 are the proud grandparents of seven and great-grandparents of [?] She has always been an accomplished seamstress and especially enjoys making the now popular soft-sculpture dolls as well as numerous other items for the local senior citizens arts and crafts shows. In addition to sewing, she has devoted years of study to researching her family history. Most of what is known about the Taylor family has been passed down to her from Everett's sister, Bertha. Bertha loved to stay with her grandparents, Mart and Rossille Holland. In turn Bertha had told Aunt Ethel everything she could remember that Grandma Holland told her. A great debt is owed to Aunt Ethel for preserving these memories and her eagerness to share them with everyone. Some time ago she wrote in her own words about her feelings concerning researching the past: As I begin to write down some of the names, ages, lives and history of my parents and grandparents and on back as far as I can find record of them, I begin to do a lot of thinking. I love my parent and grandparents (and I am proud of them) but I know some of them made some mistakes in their life. I think they did try to not make them again, and to live a better life each day. And none of us are perfect. Also, the day and time my parents lived in was almost a different world from this we are living in today. They did not have "any way" to get much education. They did not have the books, magazines and news papers that we have today. They did not have any of hte conveniences and luxuries of living we have. There were no raidos, no TV's, no CB's, no scanners. Not many telephones or "hand operated" victrolas. No way to visit or travel except by foot (walk), horseback or wagon. They -both men and women and children that was old enough - worked six days a week to make a living. There was not much time for play. And about the first 30 or 40 years of my first years was spent almost like that. I am proud of my heritage, and I forgive them of any mistakes they might have made. And I hope my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who are also the future generation, will forgive me the mistakes I have made in life. And I will strive from now on to live a life that they can be proud of - both moral and christian, and all other ways. I will try to live a better life than my ancestors did. And I hope my children, their children, and all the future generations on down will each one try to live a better life than the ones before. And also remember, we can in now way help the way our ancestors lived." Parents: Fleming KING and Josephine CRAWFORD.
