The results of the FamilyTreeDNA tests show that the descendant of James Holeman, born 1814 in Madison Co., Kentucky is "very tightly related" to the descendant of the Kenneth Holeman who died in 1871 in Upperfreehold, Monmouth Co., New Jersey. Kenneth Holeman is presumed to be the son of the Jacob Holeman who is a direct descendant of Robert Holeman, died 1709.

This Old Monmouth of Ours
By William S. Hornor
pages 183 - 184

Samuel Holman of Newport Rhode Island had town lot # 13. He did not settle in Monmouth.
His relationship, if any, to Robert Holman, died 1709, of Freehold is not apparent.
Robert Holman died in 1709, leaving a widow, Sarah, and sons - Joseph, Thomas, Robert, Daniel - and it is supposed a daughter Elizabeth who in 1712 married Robert Hankins.

Joseph Holman, son of Robert, was of Upper Freehold where he died about 1741.
The name of his wife was Thomasen.
His children were:
Joseph who married Grace ... and died before his father.
Aaron
John
Richard, a weaver
Francis, of Middletown and of New Brunawick who had a son Daniel, b. 1746
Thamy who married Robert Gravatt
Martha
Mary
Phoebe

page 178
Samuel Holman listed as one of the first lot holders of Middletown

There were three "Holmans" in colonial New Jersey: 

* Samuel Holman. According to "This Old Monmouth of Ours" by William S. Hornor, Samuel Holman of Newport Rhode Island purchased town lot # 13, but he did not settle in Monmouth, NJ. However, an unpublished article on "The Gravatt/Holman Families" by Harold Weary says "The early records at the Courthouse in Freeport, Monmouth County, contain the name Samuel Holliman during the period 1667 to 1670, which indicated that Samuel may have lived in New Jersey during this period, but for some reason decided to move back to Rhode Island. Could this Samuel Holliman (Holeman) have been a brother of Robert? We are quite sure that he wasn't his father, as Robert didn't appear in Samuel's Will. So far, nothing has been found to make a connection between Samuel and Robert." It is believed that Samuel Holman was the son of Ezekiel Holleman of Providence, R.I. A GENEALOGICAL DICTIONARY of THE FIRST SETTLERS OF NEW ENGLAND by James Savage (Volume II, page 448) states: "HOLLIMAN, or HOLYMAN, * EZEKIEL, Salem 1637, had been at Dedham bef. that; brot. from Eng. I think, a d. whose name is never seen, but it is less certain, that he brot. her mo. Susanna, d. of John Oxston, alias Fox, of Stanmore, in Co. Middlesex, wh. had three brs. John, Philip, and William, of wh. neither came over, but the time of her d. is not found. He was b. at Tring, in the adj. shire of Hertford, and m. his sec. w. prob 1638, at Providence, Mary, wid. of Isaac Sweet, wh. seems to have been cast out of the ch. at Salem, 1 July 1639, perhaps for carrying out the opinions of her h.; was pervert. in his faith, as our rulers thot. went to R. I. there at Providence in 1638, was one of the found. of the first Bapt. ch. Mary, his w. was in the same condemn. He liv. later at Warwick, where resid. John Warner, wh. had m. Priscilla, d. of H. prob. his only ch.; was rep. 1650, and more than once. Backus, I. 106. Winthrop I. 293. Benedict, Hist. of Bapt."
Question: Did Robert Holman, after he landed in Virginia in 1684, move to New Jersey because of a connection with Samuel Holman of Newport,  Rhode Island who was one of the first lot holders of Middletown, New Jersey? 

* Robert Holman, died 1709. In his will he mentions four sons: Joseph Holman, born about 1685 married Thamson; Thomas Holman, born 1686 (Kent County Maryland and then Shenandoah Valley, Virginia?); Robert Holeman, born 1687 (No information); and Daniel Holeman, born 1689 (Kent County Maryland and then Shenandoah Valley, Virginia?) According to the unpublished article by Harold Weary, Robert Holman's land had been previously owned by Abraham Brown. John Browne, a merchant, probably Abraham's son, in his estate settlement of 14 September 1714 names Daniel and Joseph Holeman as owing the estate on mortgages. [I have found New Jersey information on  Joseph (1685 - 1741), but nothing on the other three: Thomas (1686 - ), Robert (1687-), and Daniel (1689 - ).]

* "Elias" who was mentioned in the 1709 will of Robert Holman. Is he the Elias Holman, born 06 Aug 1656 in Musbury, Devon, England and emigrated to America in 1685 (Filby, P. William, ed. Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500s-1900s)? Is he the Elias Holeman whose Will was proved 27 Jan 1748 in Upper Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey, which included wife Mary and children Robert, William, Mary, and Zilpha. [More information on William (1740 - 1820), and Robert (1725 - ), sons of Elias.] Who is the Elias Holman who witnessed the will of Thomas Cox in 1723 in Freehold, Monmouth, New Jersey? Who is the Elias Holman mentioned in The History of Monmouth County, New Jersey by Franklin Ellis (April 1731 list of the taxable inhabitants of Upper Freehold includes: Elias Holman, 100 acres, and Joseph Holman, 200 acres)?

Notes from Unpublished article by Harold Weary
The Gravatt/Holman Families 

Robert Holman's Will found in Unrecorded Wills, Volume II 


It has always been a puzzle why Robert didn't mention his wife in his Will. We know that she outlived him, because the inventory of Robert's estate is headed:

"Wearas Thomas Taylor & John Cox of the township of freehold in the county of monmouth & province of new Jersey, Planters were chosen Independently By Sarah Holman widdow of Robert Holman Deceased & Joseph Holman, Son & Sole Executor to the said Robert Holman Deceased to prize the said Robbert Holman, Deceased Estate, Performed by the Sd. (said) Thos. Taylor and the said Cox, as follows, this 10th of July 1709." 

The appraisal showed that Robert was owed small sums from Richard Watson, Benj. Johnston, John Ashton, and Capt. John Anderson. The total estate amounted to 109 pounds, 5 shillings, and 3 pence.

Notes from Unpublished article by Harold Weary
The Gravatt/Holman Families 

"Of the sons: Joseph, Thomas, Robert, Daniel, and Elias, besides Joseph, my ancestor, I have found a will for only Elias. Elias died between the 24th of December 1747 and the 27th of January 1747/48. Elias left four children: Robert, the only one who appears to have been of age, William under 21 and two daughters, Mary and Zilpha. It would appear from the way the Will is worded that Robert was the eldest followed by Mary, William ,and Zilpha. Elias' wife was named Mary and sometime after his death, she married Daniel Perrine, and thereafter, according to the Will, her sons no longer had to provide for her welfare." 

Note: The above assumes that Elias is the son of the Robert Holman who left a Will in 1709.

Todd L Jameson, a descendant of William Holman (b: Abt. 1740 in Freehold, Monmouth Co., New Jersey) offered this helpful reminder to Holman family researchers who are not familiar with the Holmans of Monmouth County and Ocean County New Jersey:

Jackson Township was organized in 1844 but at that time it was Jackson Twp, Monmouth County. Prior to 1850 Ocean County did not exist; it was part of Monmouth County. Between 1850 and about 1920 the border between Ocean and Monmouth morphed a bit, but eventually it was worked out and remained as we know it today.

You may trace your Holman roots back to Clarksburg (Monmouth County), Holmanville, Cassville, Van Hiseville (all Ocean County) all these areas are only a few miles apart. In many of the really old records you'll see the Holmans connected to Upper Freehold listed -- a township in Monmouth County and very close to Clarksburg.

If one of the three "very tightly related" Holemans is a descendant of Robert Holeman, died 1709 in New Jersey, how did the other two "very tightly related" Holemans managed to get born in North Carolina and Kentucky? Is it possible that some of the New Jersey Holemans remained in New Jersey; some migrated to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, then to North Carolina, and then to Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri; and some crossed Pennsylvania to both sides of the Ohio River and on to Kentucky (Mason County and Campbell County in Kentucky and Brown County and Clermont County in Ohio.?

Randy Holman Schmidt, Holman family researcher, has raised the possibility that two of the sons of Robert Holman, died 1709 (Daniel b. 1689 and Thomas b. 1686 of New Jersey) are in fact the Holmans in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Daniel and Thomas Holman of Virginia lived near each other on Holman's Creek. (See Wine Book, Life Along Holman's Creek.) One of them, probably Thomas, had a son named Thomas born in 1723 and he is the one who migrates to Wilkes County, North Carolina. I have found no evidence that the sons of Robert Holman (Daniel b. 1689 and Thomas b. 1686) remained in New Jersey. The results of the DNA tests show that the descendant of James Holeman, b. 1814 in Madison Co, Kentucky is "related" (not "very tightly related") to the descendants of Thomas Holeman, born about 1723, who moved from Virginia to North Carolina about 1750.

If one of the three "very tightly related" Holemans is a direct descendant of Robert Holeman, died 1709, how are the other two related? Robert Holeman, died 1709, had four sons. Joseph (the ancestor of one of the "very tightly related" Holemans); Daniel and Thomas (who are believed to be the Kent County, Maryland and Shenandoah Valley Holmans), and Robert (no information on him). The DNA test results suggest that all three of the "very tightly related" Holemans descend from Joseph, the son of Robert Holeman, died 1709.
