Query: Holland Cemetery, Possible School, Church

I am trying to research the history of the land and people who lived
here before us. There are rumors that maybe a school and a church
were once located next to Holland Cemetery, but I have not been able
to verify that. I know who the original land grants went to, but not
sure about land ownership from then until the Gibsons owned it. I
know that George Matthews came here from Georgia in the early 1800s
and apparently owned part of our land and Francis Holland apparently
owned the north end of the subdivision. We know that Francis and Sarah
Holland are buried in Holland Cemetery and some of the Matthews
relatives are also. Can you direct me to where I might find more
information on land ownership, the families who lived here and the
possibility of a school/church and sawmill all being here at one time?

Thank you,
