Adair and Holland Families
First South Carolina Cavalry
and more...

Welcome!

My interest in family research and genealogy started with a manuscript that my mother gave me, a Holland and Adair Families genealogy, written by Mrs. Esther Holland Pitts, Clinton, SC 1967. I am eternally grateful to Mrs. Pitts for the fine foundation she laid for future researchers. All of my research beginnings go back to her booklet.

Esther Holland Pitts
1906 - 2006
age 100
died Thursday, December 14, 2006
 
News of Mrs. Pitts' passing left me feeling both sad and grateful.  Sad, in that I never had the opportunity to meet this great lady - and grateful, so grateful that she touched a stranger like me, and made me a part of her extended family.  Without her work and inspiration, none of my research would have been possible.

Mrs. Pitts led a full and productive life, and will be remembered fondly.

This site is dedicated in her memory.

All of the genealogy data here has been collected for personal, non-commercial use..

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of the kind people I have met and/or corresponded with while compiling this information.  My goal is to pass that kindness on wherever I can.  These pages are a labor of love, in tribute to my ancestors, and for the preservation of this history for future generations. Thank you for visiting!!
