James Holman (Holdman, Holeman)
Born: about 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky
Died: about 1886 in Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, Kentucky



James Holman (Holdman, Holeman) was born about 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky. He lived in the area of Brodhead and Crab Orchard, Kentucky, which are on the border of three Kentucky counties: Lincoln, Garrard, and Rockcastle. (At one time part of Garrard County was the western part of Madison County.)

On June 4, 1835 in Garrard County, Kentucky, James Holman was married to Martha Ramsey, the daughter of Alexander Ramsey, by Baptist minister Benjamin Polston

Until recently this site thought the parents of James Holeman, born 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky were James Holeman, born about 1770 in Rowan Co, North Carolina and Sarah Wilson, born about 1774 in Madison Co., Kentucky. (Sarah Wilsonís mother, Catherine (Livingston) Wilson, after her first husband died, married Joseph Holeman. Joseph Holeman, born about 1746, and his first wife, Elizabeth Wilson, were the parents of the James Holman, born about 1770. According to the Holeman/Holman Newsletter, Joseph Holeman, born about 1746, is the son of Thomas Holeman, died about 1798, and his wife Mary.)

However, that does not appear to be the case. My current assumptions are: 

* Joseph Holman and his first wife, Elizabeth Wilson, had the following children: Joseph Holman, Jr., born about 1775 in NC (married Rebecca Barnes); William C. Holman, born Jan 7, 1778 in NC (married Eleanor Barnes); John Holman, born about 1781 (married Nancy Martin); and Elizabeth Holman, born 1784 (married Joshua Moran).

* Joseph Holman and his second wife, Catherine Livingston, had no children. However, Catherine Livingston and her first husband, William Wilson, had the following children: William Wilson, born about 1760; Hannah Wilson (married Alexander Hosich); Sarah Wilson, born about 1774 (married James Holeman); and Mary "Polly" Wilson, born about 1772 (married Edward Hockersmith).

* James Holman, born about 1770 in Rowan Co., NC (married Sarah Wilson, daughter of Catherine Livingston and her first husband, William Wilson) on Feb 09, 1790 in Madison County, Kentucky. James Holman may or may not be the son of Joseph Holman and his first wife. Elizabeth Wilson.

* Daniel Holeman of Madison County married a Rebecca Elkins on Jun 14, 1809 in Madison County. He may or may not be the son of Joseph Holman and his first wife, Elizabeth Wilson. Some Holman family researchers believe this is the same Daniel Holman who married Rebecca Johnson by making the argument that Rebecca Johnson may have been the widow of a Mr. Elkins when she married Daniel Holman. Until proven otherwise, I'll continue with the assumption that there were two men named Daniel Holeman in Madison County: one married Rebecca Elkins, and one married Rebecca Johnson. (For more information on the Daniel Holman who married Rebecca Johnson see Holmans in Hardin County, Kentucky.)

The results of the DNA tests show that the descendant of James Holeman, b. 1814 is:

"very tightly related" to the descendant of the Daniel Holman who was born about 1787 in North Carolina, had children in Tennessee, and homesteaded in Douglas, Missouri;

"very tightly related" to the descendant of the Kenneth Holeman who died in 1871 in Upperfreehold, Monmouth Co., New Jersey who is thought to be a descendant of Robert Holeman, died 1709 in New Jersey;

"related" to a descendant of the Elias Holeman (1759 - 1827, Burlington County, New Jersey); and

"related" to the descendants of Thomas Holeman, died about 1798, who moved from Shenandoah County, Virginia to North Carolina around 1750.

If the parents of James Holeman, born 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky are not James Holeman, born about 1770 in Rowan Co, North Carolina and Sarah Wilson, born about 1774 in Madison Co., Kentucky, who are his parents? Because James Holeman was born in Kentucky in 1814, his parents may be in the 1810 census for Kentucky.
