Classification: Query
Surnames: Holmes, McCaw
Tidbits of family history left by my Holmes lines states they came from Belfast in the late 1790s. Alexander Holmes married Jane McCaw abt. 1790. They left Ireland for the US and are first located in Wythe Co. Virginia in 1793 Tax Lists. They named their oldest sons David, John, and William. Alexander was a schoolmaster in Virginia and Kentucky for over thirty years. I would be interested in knowing if you have extended family members of the John and James Holmes (merchants) listed in your former query. Any information helping me connect or find the orgin of my Holmes family in Belfast, Cos. Antrim or Down would greatly be appreciated.
