Holland Family

I am searching for information on the Holland Family from Northern Ireland. My gggggrandfather, James Holland was born February 9, 1739 in Enniskellen, County Farmanch, and married Rebecca (?), who was born June 7, 1742. Their children were: John Holland, born May 12, 1772; Jeane, born March 17, 1774; James, born May 16, 1777; Robert, born August 22, 1779; and William, born March 13, 1781.

John Holland (my ggggrandfather), born May 12, 1772, married Ann Henderson. In 1802, John, Ann, and Jane & James (?), immigrated to America in 1802, and settled in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. From there they moved to Ohio, and eventually to Brookville, Indiana in 1817, where they bought a small farm. In 1818, both John and Ann died, and the farm and all personal belongings were confiscated by the seller of the farm. In 1819, the children (8) were taken to the courthouse steps and auctioned or bonded off to the good citizens of Brookville (some of whom were very decent individuals).

Any information would be appreciated.
