George N. Holland Dead
In Business in Washington Since Close of Civil War
Was Active in All Movements for Improving the Northeastern Section of the City

George N. Holland, one of the best known residents of the northeastern section of the city, died last night at
his home at the corner of 15th and H streets northeast, after a short illness.
Mr. Holland was born in New Fane, Vt., in 1837 and was a captain of a company of the 8th Vermont Volunteers in the civil war. One of his war experiences which he delighted to recount had to do with the release of Gen. Taliaferro, a southern prisoner who was his friend. Through the persistent efforts of Capt. Holland the general was released. So pleased was Jefferson Davis with this action that he sent credentials to the captain providing for his immediate release in case of capture.
He came to Washington in 1865 and had been engaged in the hardware business here ever since. He was active in all movements looking toward the improvement of conditions in the northeastern part of the city.
He leaves one son, Calvin A. Holland, and two grandchildren, Calvin George Holland and Maud M. Holland.
Arrangements for the funeral have not been completed.
