Here is an article from the 1897 Tioga co., PA History - on St. JamesíProtestant Episcopal Church, Mansfield borough, PA:
The Church "originated in a Sunday-school started by William Hollandin March, 1865, of which Mrs. James R. Wilson, Mrs. Joseph P. Morrisand others were active members. Mr. Holland acted as lay reader untilApril, 1866, when Rev. N. Barrows became rector, after which serviceswere held regularly in the Baptist church, which had been rented forthat purpose. A church was organized, of which William Hollands andCharlotte, his wife; Mrs. Sarah E. Morris, James R. Wilson andMargaret his wife; Robert Crossley and Mary, his wife; Frederick Hart,Josephine and Irene Stewart, were members. A charter of incorporationwas obtained May 30,1867. The necessary funds for a building weresecured, the cornerstone laid September 12, 1868,Bishop Stevens, andthe building completed and opened for worship December 21,1870, thecost , including bell and organ, being $7,500. It is located on thesouth west corner of Wellsboro and St, James streets. On April 24,1871, the church was dedicated by Bishop Stevens, the officers at thetime being James R. Wilson, senior warden; William Hollands, juniorwarden; R. Crossley, A.J. Rodd, F.A. Stuart, F. A. Allen, and J.P.Morris, vestry men."
 His death record gives his occupation as "inventor". His obit. saidhe came from "Troy, NY" to Mansfield in 1863, but this may actually beTroy, Bradford co., PA, which would make more sense.
 This was either a mistake by Jay Stone (filling out the form) or elseit was his nickname.
