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.

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

The results of the DNA tests show that the descendant of James Holeman, born 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky is:

"very tightly related" to the descendant of the Daniel Holman who was born about 1787 in North Carolina, married and 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, born about 1723 in Kent County, Maryland, moved to the Shenandoah Valley Virginia, and then moved to North Carolina around 1750.

MARRIAGES
HOLMAN, HOLEMAN, and HOLDMAN
and
SOUTHERLAND, SOUTHERLIN, SOTHERLAND, SUTHERLIN, SUTHERLAND, and SUNDERLAND




The "Southerland" family lived in the same geographic locations as the three "very tightly related" Holmans:


New Jersey to Pennsylvania to Ohio

Most Sunderland family researchers believe that Samuel Sunderland (born 14 Apr 1698 in England) and his wife Elizabeth Barraclough (born Abt 1704 in England) and their three sons [Thomas (1724-1818); William (1725-1828); and John (1726-1803)] arrived at the port of Philadelphia around 1737 and settled on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. Shortly after their arrival, the youngest son (Peter) was born.
This was after Joseph Holman (1685-1741) had inherited his father's estate in 1709, and after Joseph's brothers Daniel and Thomas relocated first to Kent County, Maryland and then to Shenandoah, Virginia.
Francis Holeman (1724-1758) was the son of Joseph and Joseph's wife, Thamson; and the brother of Robert Holman (1712-1790), the grandfather of Kenneth Holeman (one of the three “very tightly related” Holmans).
Catherine Holeman (1748-1831), the daughter of Francis Holeman (1724-1758) and his wife Catherine Dye (1727-1780), married Peter Spencer Sunderland. Peter was born in 1737 in Philadelphia, married Catherine Holeman in 1778 in Somerset Co., New Jersey, lived in southwest Pennsylvania (Fayette County) in 1788-1795, bought land in eastern Ohio (Belmont County) in 1797, bought land in western Ohio (Montgomery County) in 1799, and died in 1827 in Fort Amanda, Allen County, Ohio. Peter's brothers, William and John, also relocated to Montgomery County, Ohio. Peter's brother, Thomas, remained in New Jersey.

Some Sunderland family researchers suggest that the above Sunderland family is not related to the other Sunderland families that migrated from Halifax, England to the colonies. They suggest that is above Samuel Sunderland is actually named Spencer of the "Earl of Sunderland" group and adopted the name Sunderland when he arrived in America.


Maryland

The early Sunderland family members in Maryland appear to be the descendants of Josias Sunderland (Birth: 1704 in Swinson's Rest, Calvert Co., Maryland; Death: 1771 in Calvert Co., Maryland), his wife Priscilla Stockett (b: 19 FEB 1699 in Anne Arundel Co., Maryland), and their sons:
Benjamin Sunderland b: Abt 1732 in Swinson's Rest, Calvert Co., Maryland
John Sunderland died before 1764 
Josias Sunderland Jr. b: June 15, 1723 in Calvert Co., Maryland 
Thomas Sunderland (not in Will)
Stockett Sunderland (not in Will)

The ancestors of Josias Sunderland (b: 1704) migrated to Calvert Co., Maryland from Heptonstall, Yorkshire, England.
Thomas Sunderland, b: 1745 in Frederick Co., Maryland (the son of Josias Sunderland Jr. b: 1723), married Anne abt 1770; moved to Ohio.

I have found no connection between these Maryland Sunderlands and the New Jersey Sunderlands.
I have found no connection between these Maryland Sunderlands and the Holmans.
I have found no Holman/Southerland marriages in Maryland.


Virgina/North Carolina

Thomas Holeman (b. 1756 in North Carolina - d. 1833 in Wilkes County, NC) on May 16, 1778 in Rowan County, NC married Margaret Southerland (b. 1758 in Virginia - d. 1788 in Wilkes County, NC). [After Margaret died, Thomas Holeman married Elsa Tugman (b. 1773 - d. aft 1880).]

Grace Holeman (b. abt 1753 in North Carolina - d. 1810) on March 7, 1790 in Wilkes County, NC married Daniel Southerland (b. 1753 in Wilmington, New Hanover County, North Carolina - d. 1843 in War Eagle, Madison County, Arkansas.) [Daniel Southerland first married Ann Renshaw (b. 1755 - d. 1866) in 1778 in Rowan County, NC. After Ann died, Daniel Southerland married Agnes Rysedon (born abt 1753) in 1787 in Wilkes County, NC. While married to Agnes Rysedon, Daniel Southerland had a child (William Southerland, born 1787) with Grace Holeman (b. abt 1753 in North Carolina - d. 1810). After Daniel Southerland and Agnes Rysedon divorced, or she died, Daniel Southerland married Grace Holeman.]

Thomas Holeman (b. 1756 in North Carolina - d. 1833 in Wilkes County, NC) and Grace Holeman (b. abt 1753 in North Carolina - d. 1810) are children of Thomas Holeman (born about 1723 in Kent County, Maryland) and his first wife, Mary Ann Thompson.

Daniel Southerland (born 1753 in Wilmington, New Hanover County, North Carolina) and Margaret Southerland (born 1758) are children of Daniel Southerland (b. 1724 in King William County, Virginia - d. 1799 in Wilkes County, NC) and his wife Ann Margaret (married 1753 in New Hanover County, NC). Daniel Southerland (born 1724 in King William County, Virginia) is a descendant of the Alexander Southerland (born 1620 in Darnaway Castle, Dyke, Morayshire, Scotland) who migrated to York County, Virginia in 1654.

The state census of North Carolina, 1784-1787, for Wilkes County includes the following:
Thomas Holeman, Jr. (WM 21-60 yrs = one; WM under 21 and above 60 = three; WF all ages = four) 
Daniel Sutherland (WM 21-60 yrs = one; WM under 21 and above 60 = three; WF all ages = two)
Tomas Holeman Sr (WM under 21 and above 60 = four; WF all ages = three)

Since the Holmans and the Southerlands migrated from Virginia to North Carolina around 1750, it is difficult to say when and where the two families first connected.


North Carolina/Tennessee

Two of the daughters of Daniel Southerland (born 1753 in Wilmington, New Hanover County, NC) married Holemen men:

* Elizabeth Southerland (born 1783), the daughter of Daniel Southerland and his first wife, Ann Renshaw (1755 - 1866) married a William Holeman.

* Frances Southerland (born abt 1796), the daughter of Daniel Southerland and his third wife, Grace Holeman (abt 1753) married a John Holeman.

While in Kentucky they decided to purchase 82 acres of land on Otter Creek, and settle in Cumberland County. After a brief sojourn, it is evident they were not satisfied with either their property or surroundings which caused them to post their farm for sale and move to Bledsoe County, Tennessee. The year of this move is unknown. On August 5, 1818 a deed was issued naming WILLIAM and ELIZABETH HOLFMAN, residence Bledsoe County, Tennessee as grantors on the sale of their property in Cumberland County, Kentucky.
