Just came across an old Holmes Family Cemetery in Franklin Co. while visiting the family.
Oldest name in the cemetery was Richard Ruffin Holmes, b. 1830, d. 1922, married to Amanda Bridges, b. 1842, d. 1893.
Connect to anything you have?
I'll send it along if so.

If you give me an idea of the line you are working, I might be able to help some more. I have more Holmes info in my tree. We'll just have to compare.

Washington Davis Holmes was born 26 Jun 1930 in Franklin county, his parents were Henry Holmes and Byrdie Thurston. I am not sure of the Thurston maiden name for Byrdie.

I know this is not much to go on but it is all I have at this time. I am doing this family history for my grandson who is unknowingly the grandson of Washington Davis Holmes who died in 26 Nov 1997. Thanks, Dale
