Harry Holland left Ireland and came to America in 1899.
Notice the ascot necktie he's wearing.
There were at least 8 children in the Holland family
and 6 of them became workers.
Harry's sister Dora Holland was the very FIRST person
to ever profess through William Irvine and that was
in Kilrush, County Clare, Ireland in 1896.
Harry wrote in 1966: "So many of our fellow workers
have gone, yet I am still living. I will be 89 years
old on February 6th. My sister, Dora, was 90 on January 1st.
She was the FIRST PERSON TO PROFESS in Ireland, but
that was before the Gills and the Carrolls decided and
before George Walker decided. That was some years before
I left Ireland, and I left in 1899."
