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, b. 1814 in Madison County, Kentucky is:

"very tightly related" to the descendant of the Daniel Holman who was born about 1787 in North Carolina, had children in Tennessee, and homesteaded in Douglas County, 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, who was born about 1723 in Kent County, Maryland and who moved from Shenandoah Valley Virginia to North Carolina about 1750.

Some Holman family researchers believe this is the Daniel Holman who homesteaded in Douglas County, Missouri. However, it appears that the Daniel Holman who homesteaded in Douglas County, Missouri is the Daniel Holman who lived in Roane County, Tennessee.

HOLEMANS IN MIDDLE AND WESTERN TENNESSEE

 

A number of different Holeman lines were in Middle and Western Tennessee, which is separated from North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee by a mountain range. The early settlers must have gone to or near Abingdon, Virginia; crossed the mountains at the Cumberland Gap; followed Daniel Boone's "wilderness trail" to Madison County, Kentucky; and then turned south through middle Kentucky to Tennessee.

Moore County, Goodspeed's History of Tennessee 1887
The first settlements in the territory now composing Moore County were made near the beginning of the present century, when bears, wolves, deer, and all kinds of game were abundant. Just when and by whom the first actual settlement was made cannot be stated, but the names of a considerable number of the earliest settlers can be given. William B. Prosser came from North Carolina and settled in this County in 1806, and William Spencer came in 1808. Isaac Forrester, born in South Carolina in 1790, settled here prior to the war of 1812, in which he participated. In 1816 he married Miss Matilda Hodges, and both are yet living. They are the parents of fourteen children, eleven of whom are still living. They have had eighty nine grandchildren, sixty nine of who are living, and they have had nearly seventy great-grandchildren, sixty of whom are living, and two great-great-grandchildren, both living. A remarkable family; certainly they have obeyed the Scriptural injunction "Be ye fruitful, multiply, etc." Mrs. Wiseman, who was also born in 1790, is still living in this county. Frederick Waggoner and family settled in the county before the war of 1812, in which he participated in the battle of the Horse Shoe Bend. Woodey B. Taylor and his wife, Nancy (Seay) Taylor, parents of John H. Taylor (Uncle Jack as he was familiarly called), came from Georgia with their family in 1809, and settled on East Mulberry, about two miles below the site of Lynchburg. There was only one house then between their settlement and Lynchburg, and that one was at the place now owned by Mrs. B. H. Berry. At that time there were only two log cabins in Lynchburg, one where Dr. Salmon now lives, and the other at Mrs. Alfred Eaton's place; Mr. Joel Crane then lived in the former. The same year, 1809, Andrew Walker came from South Carolina, and settled upon and mostly cleared the farm, and soon thereafter erected the house where Smith Alexander now lives. Samuel Isaacs then lived on the Jack Daniel's farm, and 
Daniel Holman lived in the next house down the valley. Anthony and Thomas Crawford, James Clark and Champion Bly were then living near Lynchburg. Mrs. Agnes Motlow, widow of a soldier of the war of the Revolution, settled in this county in 1809 or 1810, with her five sons, Zadoch, William, James, John and Felix, and two daughters, Elizabeth, who married Andrew Walker, of whom mention has been made, and Lauriet, who married Mr. ---- Massey. The Motlow family in this part of the State originated from the above ancestors. Reuben Logan settled here soon after l800, and had many successful encounters with the wild animals. He killed many bear and deer, and was a soldier in the war of 1812. 
[1871 - Moore County was established 14 December 1871 from Lincoln, Franklin, Coffee, and Bedford Counties.]

* Mildred Virginia Holeman is the daughter of Joel P Holeman (born 1811 in North Carolina and died 1860 in Jackson County, Tennessee) and Nancy.

In the 1870 census for Jackson County, Tennessee, the widow Mildred Virginia (Holeman) Burton and her children were neighbors of Elijah B. Holleman (born 1814 in Jackson Co., Tennessee) and Matthew B. Holleman (born 1838 in Jackson Co., Tennessee). Also, in her household was J. M. Hollimon (born 1843 in Tennessee).

Matthew B. Holleman (born 1838 in Jackson Co., Tennessee) is the son of Elijah B. Holleman (born 1814 in Jackson Co., Tennessee), and the grandson of Mark Holleman (born ABT 1772 in NC; died ABT 1852 in Jackson Co., TN)

John Holeman (1770-1854) and Margaret "Peggy" Sigler

I have not found documentation that this family was in Tennessee, but their son, Samuel Holeman, in the 1850 census for Caldwell County, Kentucky reports that he was born 1809 in Tennessee.

The 1820 census for Jackson County, Middle Tennessee (adjacent to Overton County) lists a number of households named Holloman. These may be descendants of Christopher Hollyman of Isle of Wight County, Virginia.

The DNA results for the three "very tightly related" Holemans did not match the test results:
* in the Holman Family DNA Project for the descendants of "German" Holmans: Conrad Holman and John Wendel Hallman/Heilman;
* for the Hollyman Family DNA Project (males who are or believe they are descended from the Christopher Hollyman who resided in Isle of Wight Co., VA and died there in 1691); 
* in the Family DNA Project for Hagelman, Hailman, Hallman, Halman, Heilman, Heilmann, Helman, Heylman, Heylmann, Hileman, Hilemann, Hilleman, Hillemann, Hillman surnames.
