Edward Holmes is my direct descendant and I am in the process of receiving all of White County Tennessee's Records, I don't know if he is the son of George. After much research, I do believe that Edward Holmes of White County Tn B 1797 d 1833 White County, Tn. He names his sister Mary Polly Holmes Baker in his will. She married a James Baker in Mecklinburg, and this family is living in White County. I see the marriage bond in Mecklinburg, lists William Sr. as the father. Let me know if you have found out any more information. I have the descendants. He married secondly a Nancy unknown B. 1797 NC d. in White County. Because the exrs of his will, Edward Holmes is James Baker, the husband of Mary Polly Holmes, and the other exr. is a William J. Bennett, a lot of people have jumped to the conclusion that the second marriage was to Nancy Bennet because the on of the exr. is William Bennett.If you would like more information please contact me and let me know why you think he is related to George Holmes and Anna Hill?
