Surnames: Holmes, Baker
I am stuck with this same brick wall. My direct ancestor is Edward Holmes b. 1776 Va d. 1833 White County, Tn. He names in his will in White County, TN , his sister Mary Baker. through research, and the purchasers of his state and exrs of the estate. I have established that his sister was in fact Mary Polly Holmes b. 1784 Mecklinburg, m James Baker 24 Oct 1804 in Mecklinburg, but then there first child is born in White County. in 1805 William Holmes Baker b 1805 White County d. 1872. William Holmes Baker was an executor of the estate of Edward Holmes 1776-1833, his father James Baker had passed by this time. Dabner Baker and Green Baker purchase items from his estate. I am at a brick wall as to who the parents of these two were. some people put them with George Holmes descendants from Mass. and others with William Holmes of Mecklinburg and Elizabeth Crowder. what I find is that in my brief study of it tonight, that William states that his son, Edward is deceased at this will when he leaves items to Polley. Edward moved with Polly to White County. I am awaiting White County CD's to see if I can find more. If anyone knows more of who my Edward Holmes is, please let me know. Kind Regards.
