Van Meter/Van Metre

The Van Meter (Van Metre) connection to the Holmans is the September 18, 1805 marriage in Hardin County, Kentucky of Rebecca McNeil (1785-1808) to James Burton Holeman (1780-1876). 
James Burton Holeman (1780-1876) is the son of John Holeman (1736-1837) and Elizabeth Burton (1738-1828) of Virginia.
Rebecca McNeil (1785-1808) is the daughter of Elizabeth Van Meter (1748-1802) and her second husband, Thomas McNeil (1749-1790).
Elizabeth Van Meter (1752-1803) is the daughter of Jacob Van Meter (born 1723 in Somerset County, New Jersey; died Nov 16, 1798 in Hardin County, Kentucky) and Letitia Strode (1725-1789).

The Van Meters arrived around 1660 as part of the Dutch settlement in the New York area (New Netherland). They later acquired land in Somerset County, Province of East Jersey.

John Van Meter of New York and New Jersey (married to Sarah du Bois) was an Indian Trader and traveled to the Shenandoah Valley with the Delaware Indians. John Van Meter told his sons, John Van Meter, Jr (married first to Sarah Bodine and second to Margaret Mulinar) and Isaac Van Meter about the prize land in the Valley. The two sons Migrated from New Jersey down to the area of Frederick County, Maryland, and in 1730 applied for and received from Virginia Governor Gooch a land grant for 40,000 acres.
[Note: This land, except for two parcels retained by the Van Meters, was later transferred to Jost Hite. Rebecca Van Meter (the daughter of John Van Meter, the Indian Trader and Sarah du Bois) married Cornelis Elting and had a daughter, Sara Elting. Sara Elting married Col. John Hite, the eldest son of Jost Hite and Anna Marie du Bois.]

John VanMeter received a grant of 10,000 acres on the north branch of the Shenandoah River on 17 June 1730, as listed in records of Orange County, Virginia. 


Jacob Van Meter (1723-1798) was the fourth and youngest son of John Van Meter, Jr and his second wife, Margaret Mulinar. Around 1768, Jacob Van Meter (1723-1798) and his wife Letitia Strobe sold their land in Frederick County, Virginia and relocated to the southwestern part of Pennsylvania (which was also claimed by Virginia).

In 1779, Jacob Van Meter (1723-1798) again relocated. This time he loaded twenty-seven houseboats with his extended family and floated from Pittsburgh down the Ohio River to near Louisville, Kentucky. They joined a settlement in the part of Nelson County, Kentucky which later became Hardin County, Kentucky.

Elizabeth Van Meter (born 1752 in Frederick County, Virginia and died 1803 in Elizabethtown, Hardin County, Kentucky) was the daughter of Jacob Van Meter (1723-1798) and Letitia Strobe. Elizabeth Van Meter (1752-1803) married first John Swan (1744–1783), married second Thomas McNeil (1749–1790), and married third John Vertrees (1741–1803).

Kennedy

James Holman (Holeman, Holdman, Holdam), born about 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky, is one of the three "very tightly related" Holmans. He lived in the area of Brodhead and Crab Orchard, Kentucky, which are on the border of three Kentucky counties: Lincoln, Garrard, and Rockcastle. On June 4, 1835 in Garrard County, Kentucky, James Holman was married to Martha "Patsy" Ramsey, (the daughter of Alexander Ramsey and the granddaughter of Thomas Ramsey) by Baptist minister Benjamin Polston. At one point James and Patsy (Ramsey) Holeman were members of the Old Union Baptist Church, which met in a schoolhouse located on southwest side of the road on James Kennedy’s line in "Union" Garrard County, Kentucky.

Notes from articles posted by "CabinSue" on the Rootsweb site for KYGARRAR:

* During the early settlement of Kentucky, John Kennedy and sons John Jr., Gen. Tom, Joseph, Andrew and Billy Dave Kennedy came in to the area of Madison and Lincoln counties. A little later a half brother of John Kennedy, named James came into the same area. 

* The farm of Gen. Thomas Kennedy, Garrard County's first Representative in the General Assembly of Kentucky, was the inspiration for Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin".

* Following the civil war members of the Kennedy clan, especially Elbert D. Kennedy, were involved in much violence in the Crab Orchard area. Elbert D. Kennedy (or "Uncle Eb" or "Old Hook 'Em") had been a Magistrate, County surveyor, Sheriff, Circuit Clerk, and a Commissioner of the Court. Some of the other names mentioned in these stories:
** George Dollins, a special policeman of Crab Orchard
** Henry C. Brooks
** Alex Conn and Sam Conn
** Walter Saunders, the noted head of the Crab Orchard outlaws, and Sheriff of Lincoln County
** James Berthuram, living in Rockcastle County and Andy Cummins, a brother-in-law of Berthuram
** John McQuerry who ran off to Greene County, Illinois with Susan Jane Cooley, one of the illegitimate children of Elbert D. Kennedy

[Note: James Holman and wife Martha F Holman of Garrard County on March 2, 1860 (taxes paid March 12, 1860) sold eleven and one-half acres on waters of Drakes Creek for $130 to Flavius Josephus Conn (the lot of land allotted to John F Suddith and wife for division and allotment of land of Daniel McQuerry, deceased.

* Thomas Triplett (1765-1850) married Jane Ferguson (1770-1850) in Wilkes County, North Carolina on Feb 28, 1788.


Note: 

Dianna Triplett, age 34, and Alice Triplett, age 74, are in the same household in the 1850 census for Wilkes County, North Carolina. Living next door was Horton Triplett (born 1816), the son of Dianna Holeman (1793-1887) and William Triplett (born 1789). Is this Dianna Holeman (1793-1887) and her mother, Elsa Tugman (1773-1880)?

Dianna Triplett, age 65, is living alone in the 1860 census for the Upper Division, Wilkes County, North Carolina. Living nearby were the households of her son, Asa Triplett (1821-1909) and her daughter, Charlotte (Triplett) St Clair. Her neighbors included two Ferguson households: J T Ferguson, born 1794 in North Carolina, and J Ferguson, born 1809 in North Carolina.
