Need info re: Holders in Gloucestershire area

Surnames: Holder
I am seeking info regarding our family's possible connection to Gloucestershire. Have found some leads that point to my family coming from that area, arriving in Virginia,USA by mid 1660's.
There is a possible free anonymous DNA testing available for any male Holders in the UK- this would help confirm our research.
The Holders in The US have started a DNA database to help us track the family connections.
My branch of the Holders have an interesting history and I am more than willing to share several years worth of research. Example: one line had accompanied Daniel Boone westward, and the book and movie "Last of the Mohicans"
was based largely on actual events. Our extended family had several dozen members at Gettysburg, on both sides of the conflict.
Any info would be appreciated. gl_fulton@yahoo.com

Hi
A Mary Holder B: 8 mar 1767 St Nicholas, Gloucester Fa:William Holder Mo: Hannah married John Elliott,an ancestral Uncle of mine, in St Nicholas Church, Gloucester on 5 July 1789. One of their children Thomas Holder Elliott B: 14 Oct 1797 emigrated to the USA and (I think) married Amelia Helphenstine in Winchester, Virginia in 1821 and died in Ohio in 1888.
I don't know much about the Holders but have noticed that there were quite a lot of them in Gloucestershire (IGI).
I know quite a lot about John Elliott who was a Land Surveyor and teacher in Stonehouse, if you're interested.
Kind regards
Roy Elliott

Thomas Holder Elliott is my third great grandfather and I would be very interested in talking with anyone about this family. I am from the family of his daughter Margaret Elliott who married James Coyle and lived in Ohio. I now live in Minneapolis.
