Perry Otis Holland was my great grandfather. He was born 04/26/1887 in Bower's Mill, MO. He married Mary Ellen "Ruth" Duncan 07/19/1911 at Gray's Point, MO. He died 06/15/1945 and is buried in Osborn Cemetery, Joplin, MO.
Ruth was born 06/14/1893 in Bower's Mill, MO and died 03/29/1963; also buried in Osborn Cemetery. I only know of 6 children but there could be more. Lucille, Juanita, Max, Wayne (still living), Carroll (my grandfather who passed in 2009) and Bobby Jo (still living). I think I remember my grandfather talking about a sister Leanna as well.
