It is reasonable to assume that were can 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). However, the results of Holman DNA Studies indicate that James Holman may be related to, but did not descended from, Thomas Holeman of Wilkes County, North Carolina. 

Excerpts from HOLEMAN/HOLMAN NEWSLETTER, Roger and Merry Ann Malcolm, Editors
Descendants of Thomas Holeman (d. ca 1798)

page 1
Children of Thomas Holeman & Mary ? (see Note #3)
1-2-2 Joseph Holeman, b. ca 1746; m. 1) Elizabeth Wilson 12 Apr 1768, Rowan Co., NC; m. 2) Catherine (Livingston) Wilson, 8 Apr 1790, Madison Co., KY (see Notes #4 and #5); d. ca 1819, Madison Co., KY

page 2
PROBABLE children of Joseph Holeman & Elizabeth Wilson (see Note #7)
1-2-2-1 James Holman, b. ca 1770; m. Sarah Wilson (dau. of Catherine (Livingston-Wilson) Holeman), 9 Feb 1790, Madison Co., KY; lived in Campbell Co., KY in 1818.
1-2-2-2 Mary "Polly" Holman, b. ca 1772; m. Edward Hockersmith, 27 Aug 1793, Madison Co., KY (see Note #8).
1-2-2-3 Joseph Holman, Jr., b. ca 1775, NC; m. Rebecca Barnes, 15 Dec 1797, Madison Co., KY; d. Nov 1836, Marion Co., MO.
1-2-2-4 William C Holman, b. 7 Jan 1778, NC; m. Elearnor Barnes, 16 Nov 1802, Madison Co., KY; d. 26 Feb 1834, Randolph Co., MO; bur. Pleasant Grove cem., Randolph Co., MO.
1-2-2-5 John Holman, b. ca 1780; m. Nancy Martin, 18 Mar 1817, Madison Co., KY; d. before 2 May 1836, Madison Co., KY (see Note #9).
1-2-2-6 Daniel Holman, b. ca 1782; m. Rebecca (Johnson?) Elkins, 15 June 1809, Madison Co., KY; d. 1840-1850.
1-2-2-7 Elizabeth "Betsy" Holman, m. Joshua Moran, 1 Sep 1808, Madison Co., KY.

Note #3 The order of children in the will of Thomas Holeman is as follows: Absalom, Reuben, Susannah, Rachel, Joseph, Daniel, Rebecca, Isaac, Thomas, Grace, Elizabeth, Jacob, Margaret, James.
Absalom, Reuben, and Susannah were singled out to receive two-thirds of his estate while each of the other children was given 1 shilling. Probably these three had not yet married.

Note #4 In August 1818 Catherine (Livingston-Wilson) Holeman gave slaves to her children by a former marriage, i.e., William Wilson, Hannah Wilson (now married to Alexander Hosich), and Sarah Wilson (now married to James Holeman, probably 1-2-2-1). A William Holeman also purchased a slave, George.

Note #5 Cathy Holman sold her dower rights to her husband Joseph's land for $14 to his son, John

Note #7 This family has been created from census, marriage and tax records. Only John has been documented as a child of Joseph (but it is not certain that Joseph's son, John, was the John who m. Nancy Martin). 

Note #8 Records in Madison Co., KY list Edward Hockersmith's marriage on 27 Aug 1793 twice -- once with Polly Holdman and once with Mary Wilson. Polly was often used as a nickname for Mary. Could Mary/Polly have been the daughter of Catherine (Livingston) Wilson who married Joseph Holeman (1-2-2) in 1790? Edward Hockersmith seems to have married again in 1807, so Mary/Polly was deceased and thus would not have been listed by Catherine in 1818 (see Note #4).

Note #9 Although no John Holeman has been found on the 1840 or 1850 census for Madison Co., KY (a Nancy Holeman does appear in 1840), land records seem to indicate that a John Holeman with heirs Richard, Elizabeth, Nancy and William died ca 1850. (The heirs sold about 500 acres on Tates Creek in 1852.) Are there two John Holemans?

My 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.

Thomas Holeman of Wilkes County, North Carolina

Because Thomas Holeman of Wilkes County, North Carolina lived near Daniel Boone in Wilkes County, North Carolina, it is assumed that his children and grandchildren would follow the same path to Kentucky that Boone followed in 1775 (north to Abingdon, Virginia, through the Cumberland Gap, and following the "Wilderness Trail" to Boonsboro, Kentucky). 

The families of two sons and a daughter of Thomas Holeman (1723-1798) and Mary Thompson were in Middle/Western Tennessee:
* Daniel Holeman (1750-1820) of Robertson County, Tennessee
* Isaac Holeman of Lincoln County, Tennessee
* Henry Johnson of Davidson County, Tennessee and Rachel Holeman (1743-1815)

Did these families go directly into Eastern Tennessee, or did they go by way of Kentucky into Middle Tennessee? If by way of Kentucky, did they spend time with the family of Joseph Holeman (1746-1819) and first wife Elizabeth Wilson and second wife Catherine Livingston (widow of William Wilson) in Madison County, Kentucky? Records show that descendants of Thomas Holeman of Wilkes County, North Carolina were in the Kentucky counties (Laurel, Knox, and Whitley) between Madison County and the Tennessee border.

Children of Thomas Holeman (1723-1798) and his first wife Mary Ann Thompson

* RACHEL HOLMAN. The Holeman/Holman Newsletter: "Rachel Holeman, b. ca 1744; m. Henry Johnson, Mar 1763; d. 10 Mar 1815, Robertson Co., TN; bur. "John Durham farm", Robertson Co., TN." 
Henry Johnson (born 1738 in Maryland):
* Served as a Private in Captain Ingle's Company, 2nd N. C. Regiment. Enlisted May 1777 to serve three years.
* March 7, 1786, North Carolina land grant for 640 acres of land in Davidson County on the north side of Tennessee River on Blount's Creek
* The Times, Springfield, TN, June 1, 1972 article regarding DAR dedication of a headstone at the grave of Henry Johnson.
** born in Ireland in 1738.
** Older brother, Isaac Johnson, born in 1722
** Isaac and Henry migrated to Maryland
** Rachel Holman, born 1743 in Massachusetts. (I believe this is wrong. It may be that someone read "MA" as the birth state and assumed Massachusetts, not Maryland.)
** Marriage in March 1763 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (on the border with Maryland)
** Relocated to North Carolina near the Yadkin River.
** Their son, Thomas Johnson, migrated to Springfield, Tennessee in 1789.
** Later Henry and Rachel followed their sons (Thomas and Henry, Jr) to Springfield, Tennessee (One half mile east, and 3 miles south of Springfield).

Isaac Johnson (died 1838), the son of Henry and Rachel (Holeman) Johnson, married Amelia Holeman about 1805 in North Carolina. Amelia Holeman was the daughter of Reuben Holeman (abt 1759-abt 1829) and Mary Cook; and the granddaughter of Isaac Holeman, died 1808, and Mary Benton Hardy.

Two of the children of Isaac and Amelia (Holeman) Johnson married Holemans:
* William Cook Johnson (born 1823 in Tennessee) married his first cousin, Mary "Polly" Holeman, the daughter of William Holeman (1779 - 1857) and Martha Pinchback, and the granddaughter of Reuben Holeman (abt 1759 - abt 1829) and Mary Cook.
* Lillis Houston Johnson (born abt 1817) married her second cousin William Holeman (died 1900 in Barry Co., Missouri), the son of Hudspeath and Justine Holeman and the grandson of Isaac Holeman and Mary Benton Hardy.

[Note: Some Johnson researchers believe that Rachel was the daughter of Isaac Holeman, died 1808, not Thomas Holeman (1723-1798).]

After the Rev. war, he lived in South Carolina for 14 years, then he moved to Georgia for 10 years, then to Robertson Co., Tennessee (where his brother Daniel Holeman was), then, he went to Lincoln County, Tennessee where he died in 1834. 
** Isaac Holeman (1752-1834) and his son (by his second wife) Isaac Holeman (1786-1877) were both in the Lincoln County, Tennessee census for 1820 and 1830. "Hannah" and her daughter-in-law, Rachel, (widow of William Holeman) were in the 1840 census for Lincoln County, Tennessee.
** Two children of Isaac Holeman (1752-1834) and his first wife, Elizabeth Johnson, have been identified: Enoch Holeman, born 1780, and James Holeman. Court records show that Enoch Holeman was in Robertson County, Tennessee in 1803. Enoch's son Gideon D Holman (born about 1813 in Tennessee) was Sumner County, Tennessee in the 1840 census. I have not yet found information of James, but there was an unidentified James Holeman in the 1810 Logan County, Kentucky census.

Daniel Southerland (1753-1843) of Wilkes County, North Carolina served in the Rev. war. After the war (about 1805) he moved to Cumberland County, Kentucky for about a year. (Some of his family may have migrated to Adair County, Kentucky.) Daniel Southerland (1753-1843) then moved down to Bledsoe County in eastern Tennessee, where he stayed for about twenty-five years. He is in the 1830 Bledsoe County, Tennessee census, living with his son Daniel Southerland, b. 1784. In 1836 he moved to Madison County, Arkansas to be near his daughter Frances who married John Holeman. Daniel Sutherland (1753-1843) was living at the home of John Holmon on the 1840 Madison County, Arkansas census. [Note: John Holeman (b. 1786) is the son of James Holeman (1761-1835) and Lucy Cook, and the grandson of Isaac Holeman, died 1808.] Daniel Southerland and his first wife Ann Renshaw had daughter named Elizabeth who married a William Holeman (parents unknown).
