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

I have been unable to find the parents of James Holman (born about 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky) in or around Madison County. The Holeman/Holman Newsletter shows just one Holman family in Madison County - Joseph Holeman, a son of Thomas Holeman of Wilkes County, North Carolina (d. ca 1798). [It may be that the James Holeman of Campbell County, Kentucky and the Daniel Holeman who married Rebeccah Elkins are not sons of the Joseph Holeman, who was a son of Thomas Holeman of Wilkes County, North Carolina (d. ca 1798)]

Also, I have been unable to find the parents of James Holman (born about 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky) among the Holmans in the Kentucky counties to the west: Woodford and Hardin.

There is a Holman in the one of the counties to the east - Estill County. Estill County, Kentucky was formed in 1808 from land given by Clark and Madison counties. [Madison County formed from Lincoln County in 1785. Clark County formed from Fayette and Bourbon counties in 1792, the same year Kentucky became a state.]

My assumption is the North Carolina Holmans went through the Cumberland Gap to get to Kentucky. Some of the Holmans then went south to get to central and western Tennessee.

 

 

Logan/Warren/Barren Counties, Kentucky



Logan County was formed from Lincoln County, Kentucky in 1792. It ran from the Little Barren River on the east to the Mississippi River on the west and from the Ohio and Green rivers on the north to Tennessee on the south. The first settlement was Maulding's Station on the north fork of the Red River in 1780. 

Warren County was formed in 1796 from a section of Logan County, Kentucky.

Barren County was formed in 1799 from Green & Warren Counties, Kentucky.

Holemans in Logan/Warren/Barren Counties, Kentucky

 

 

Logan County was formed from Lincoln County, Kentucky in 1792, it ran from the Little Barren River on the east to the Mississippi River on the west and from the Ohio and Green rivers on the north to Tennessee on the south. The first settlement was Maulding's Station on the north fork of the Red River in 1780. A diverse mixture of people immigrated to Logan County. A noted Methodist minister who lived near Adairville from 1793 to 1802, damned the area as "Rogue's Harbor" because it was the home of the lawless from almost all parts of the Union-murderers, horse thieves, highway robbers, and counterfeiters. Logan County shared a border with Robertson County, Tennessee.

Warren County, Kentucky was formed in 1796 from a section of Logan County.

Barren County, Kentucky was formed in 1799 from Green & Warren Counties.

 

Transportation in Early Middle Tennessee
by Susan Douglas Wilson
The article appeared in Middle Tennessee Genealogy Vol. Vll. No. 4. Spring 1994, pp. 148-152
(Now called The Middle Tennessee Journal of Genealogy & History)

The first inhabitants of the Middle Tennessee areas use two major forms of transportation. The first form was overland travel. Indians utilized animal paths and made their own trails between hunting grounds and home. Many of these trails become modern day roads and highways. The Natchez Trace, the Cumberland Trace, the Black Fox Trail, and the Great South Trail were a few of the trails used by emigrants who settled in the Middle Tennessee area. The second form of transportation was water travel on rivers and streams. Canoes, dugouts, flatboats and keelboats were the primary vehicles of water travel.
In 1779 and 1780, the first groups of settlers in Middle Tennessee used these forms of travel. James Robertson made an overland journey on foot into the area from the eastern settlement by the way of the Cumberland Gap, through central Kentucky, south to Tennessee in one of the coldest winters in decades. 
John Donelson made a circuitous journey with a flotilla of flatboats beginning on the Holston River and followed the Tennessee River, the Ohio River, and the Cumberland River before landing in the Nashville area. At one point they landed on a shoal and had to make 30 people leave the boat to lighten it. One boat was driven onto the point of an island and sunk by strong currents. One family developed smallpox. Indian war a major hazard. One man was killed and 27 taken prisoner. By the end of the journey the flotilla was out of bread and the travelers suffered from hunger and fatigue. Both of these journeys illustrated the hazards of transportation in those times. The travelers were at the mercy of geographic obstacles, Indian attacks and weather conditions.

There were at least four "Holman" lines and one "Hollowman" line living on the Kentucky side of the Kentucky/Tennessee border.

[Is he the "John Howman" in the 1810 census for Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky, and his son John Holeman (1787-1839) in the 1810 census for Eddyville, Caldwell Co., Kentucky? Is Jacob Holeman (1791-1855), son of John Holeman (1770-1854), the one who receive a land grant in Christian County, Kentucky in 1820?]

A William Holeman received a land grant in Logan County in 1798.

However, their daughter Mary Holeman (1782-1858) married Jacob Sigler about 1800 in Rowan County, North Carolina, and then they relocated first to Robertson County, Tennessee and then to Caldwell County, Kentucky. Is William Holeman (1753-1820) the one who received the land grant?

Notes on The Kentucky Land Grants by Willard Rouse Jillson

Virginia Land Grants were issued by the Commonwealth, between 1782 and 1792, based on warrants.
Some warrants were given for military service in French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. Virginia Military lands were situated between the Green and Cumberland rivers.

page 337 Grants South of Green River (1797-1866)
[Also called headright claims because they were reserved by Virginia for Virginia veterans. When Kentucky became a state the land (100 to 200 acres) became available to persons over age 21 who settled the land for at least one year.]

One "James" was the James Holeman (1777-1845), a son of Daniel Holeman [son of Isaac, died 1808] who relocated from Woodford County to Logan County, Kentucky. Who is the other James? 

* Isaac Holeman, died 1808, also had a son James Holeman (1761-1835). Did he relocate to Kentucky?

* William Holeman (1753-1820) [son of Isaac, died 1808] had a son, James Holeman (1788-1840). Did he relocate to Kentucky?

* Daniel Holeman (1749-1820) [Son of Thomas Holeman (died 1798) and his first wife Mary Thompson] had a son, James Irvin Holeman (b.1777) who lived in Robertson County, Tennessee.

* Isaac Holeman (1752-1834) [Son of Thomas Holeman (died 1798) and his first wife Mary Thompson] and his first wife Elizabeth Johnson are thought to have a son James Holeman. Did he relocate to Tennessee and Kentucky?

* Thomas Holeman (died 1798) and his second wife Susannah York are thought to have a son James Holeman (b. 1762). Did he relocate to Tennessee and Kentucky?

Who is the John Holeman in the 1810 census for Logan County, Kentucky?

* Isaac Holeman, died 1808, also had a son, John Holeman (1770-1854). I believe this John is in the 1810 census for Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky or Eddyville, Caldwell Co., Kentucky.

* Daniel Holeman [son of Isaac, died 1808] had a son John Holeman (1787-1864). I believe he moved to Logan Co., Ky to be near his brother, James Holeman (1777-1845).

* James Holeman [son of Isaac, died 1808] had a son John Holeman (b. 1786). Did he relocate to Kentucky?
