The results of the DNA tests show that the descendant of James Holeman, b. 1814 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, 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, who moved from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia to North Carolina about 1750 and died in 1798 in Wilkes County, North Carolina.

Holeman Related Surnames in Virginia

 

 

BURTON

 

 

The Burton family was associated with two of the three "very tightly related Holemans":

* William B Holeman, son of the Daniel Holeman who was born in North Carolina, had children in Tennessee and homesteaded in Douglas County, Missouri, was born in 1831 in Roane County, Tennessee. He named one of his sons Burton A Holeman (born 1859 in Ozark County, Missouri). [Note: The 1850 census for Subdivision 22, Meigs, Tennessee shows a Burton Halman, born about 1812 in North Carolina.]

* The descendants of two Burton men (John of Longfield and Thomas of Cobbs) from Henrico County, Virginia were in Pulaski, Madison, and Garrard counties in Kentucky about the same time that the James Holeman (who married Martha Ramsey) was born in Madison County, Kentucky.

1) John Burton of Longfield (1632-1689) who married Rachel Hutchins. Their descendants (Robert Burton and John Pleasant Burton) were in the Madison County, Kentucky area.

** Robert Burton (born 1736 in Henrico County, Virginia; died 1807 in Madison Co., Kentucky) had sons who also lived in the Madison County area: Allen, b. 1760; Abraham, b.1766; Isaac, b. 1767; Sherod, b. 1772; and Julius, b. 1779.

** John Pleasant Burton (born July 3, 1758 in Henrico County, Virginia and died July 4, 1836 in Lawrence County, Indiana) married Susanna Stampler in 1779 in Ashe County, North Carolina. John Pleasant Burton (1758- 1836) had a son Allen Burton, born 1786 in Virginia, who married Nancy McMullin in 1812 in Garrard Co., Ky, married Betsy Williamson in 1817 in Madison County, Ky, and died 1867 in Washington County, Kentucky

Also, Jesse Burton (1760-1825), great, great grandson of the John Burton (1632-1689) who married Rachel Hutchins, was on the 1800 tax list for Garrard County, Kentucky.


2) Thomas Burton of Cobbs (1634-1686) who married Susannah Hatcher

** James Paign Burton, born 1736 in Goochland County, VA; died 1814 in Pulaski County, Ky. James Paign Burton, born 1736, and his sons are in the 1810 Census for Pulaski Co., Ky. I have found no Holmans in Pulaski Co census for 1810. However, a Josept Holman and a James Holman were on the Pulaski Co., Kentucky tax list for 1800.

" ... Her father was Major Hugh Moss and her mother was Jane Ford, both born in that vicinity [Goochland county]. Major Moss died in the year 1779. Mrs. Moss then married Captain Joseph R. Farrar, who came to Kentucky in the spring of 1775, settled near Lexington and died 1796. Mrs. F. then married Captain Joseph Rogers of Bryant Station and died in 1814. ..."

Joseph Royall Farrar (b: Abt. 1740, d: 1796) in 1783 married third Jane Ford. Jane Ford also was married three times: Hugh Moss, Joseph Royall Farrar, and Joseph Hale Rogers (1742-1834).
Joseph Hale Rogers (1742-1834) had a brother, William Rogers (1744-1828) who in 1764 married Nancy Johnson, the brother of the Cave Johnson who married Dora Francis Holeman (1886-1968).
Dora Francis Holeman (1886-1968) was the grandchild of Absolom B Holeman (Abt. 1800-1870) and his second wife, Joannah W Overstreet (1816-1845). [See Holmans in Tennessee]

SNEAD/SNEED

 

 

I have found two connections between the Holmans and the Sneads:

* Sarah Holeman (1740-1777), daughter of Henry Holeman (1685-1740) and Mourning Bowles (1685-1752), married Archibald Snead (1740-1781), son of John Snead (Bef 1715-1782) and Susanna Poindexter.

* Charles Holeman (1762-1816) and Richard Holeman (c1759-c1839) of Person County, North Carolina (sons of Richard Holeman and Jane Carlise) interacted with the family of Samuel Snead (about 1723-about 1806) and his wife Jane Dudley.

 

***

Holmans and Sneads in Henrico County, Virginia



Research on the Sneed/Snead family by Richard B. Baldauf and others indicated that John Snead, born before 1715, and Benjamin Snead, born in 1721, were sons of William Snead of Henrico County, Virginia (b.1690) and grandsons of John Snead of New Kent County, Virginia.

**

John Snead (born before 1715), son of William Snead of Henrico County, Virginia (b.1690)

John Snead (born before 1715 in New Kent County and died 1782 in Hanover County, Virginia) and his wife, Susanna Poindexter, had two sons: John Snead (1735-1812) and Archibald Snead (1740-1781)

---

John Snead (1735-1812), son of John Snead (born before 1715 in New Kent County)

John Snead (1735-1812) of Hanover County, Virginia around 1760 married second Jane Winn. Apparently the children/grandchildren of the first wife sued the widow, Jane Winn, and her children regarding the estate of the late John Snead.

October 26, 1812, Virginia Argus: In Chancery - In Hanover County Court, July 24th, 1812: 

RICHARD SNEAD, JOHN SNEAD, RICHARD GLAZEBROOK & KITTURA his wife, late KITTURA SNEAD, CHARLES ANDERSON and ELIZABETH his wife, late ELIZABETH SNEAD, WILLIAM HARRIS and KEZIAH his wife, late KEZIAH SNEAD, and NATHANIEL HOLMAN and ALICE his wife, late ALICE SNEAD, which Richard and John Snead, and the said female complaints, are children and distributes of the estate of the late JOHN SNEAD, deceased, plaintiffs.

Against: ROBERT SNEAD, admír of John Snead, decíd, BILLEY SNEAD, PARTRICK SNEAD, JANE HARRIS, late JANE SNEAD, admix of her late husband DAVID HARRS, THOMAS PRIDDY and MARY his wife, late MARY SNEAD, WILLIAM E. HARRIS and ANNE his wife, late ANNE SNEAD; JOHN, JANE and CATHERINE SNEAD, which last three are infant children and heirs of AUGUSTINE SNEAD, decíd son of the said JOHN SNEAD, decíd, ELIZABETH and NANCY HARRIS, infant children of MARTHA HARRIS, decíd, late MARTHA SNEAD, daughter of the said JOHN SNEAD, deceased, defendants.

The Nathaniel Holman (1761-1813) who married Alice Snead (1761-1791), daughter of John Snead (1735-1812) and Jane Winn (1742-1812), is the son of Nathaniel Holeman (1735-1804) and Ann Winn (1734-1808). Nathaniel Holeman (1735-1804) is the son of Henry Holeman (1685-1740) and Mourning Bowles (1685-1752).

---

Archibald Snead (1740-1781), son of John Snead (born before 1715 in New Kent County)

Archibald Snead (1740-1781) in 1756 in Hanover County, Virginia married first Sarah Holeman (1740-1777) daughter of Henry Holeman (1685-1740) and Mourning Bowles (1685-1752). [Her uncle, Benjamin Bowles, was the guardian of Sarah Holman when she eloped with Archibald Sneed in 1756.] 
Archibald Snead (1740-1781) and Sarah Holeman (1740-1777) named one of their sons "Holman".


**

Benjamin Sneed (born in 1721), son of William Snead of Henrico County, Virginia (b.1690)

Benjamin Sneed born in 1721 in Albemarle Co., VA; died 1819 near Danville, Kentucky. He married Mary Ann Perry, granddaughter of John Sorrell, about 1750. Benjamin Snead was a schoolmaster on Buck Island, where he was a tutor of the Jefferson and Randolph children, (and according to his obituary, the first tutor of President Thomas Jefferson.) [Boyle County, Kentucky was created in 1842 from Mercer and Lincoln Counties. County seat is Danville.]

[Note: In 1737 in Goochland County, Virginia, George Payne, James Holman, and Henry Holman witnessed a deed by John Sorrell. John Sorrell was the grandfather of the Mary Ann Perry who married Benjamin Snead (b 1721).]

Children of Benjamin and Mary Ann (Perry) Sneed:

* John Mills Sneed born Feb. 2, 1755; died Dec. 21, 1855; married Nov. 10, 1784, Sarah Johnson, daughter of James & Mildred (Mims) Johnson of Goochland Co., Virginia. 
He was private secretary to Thomas Jefferson, a volunteer in the expedition against the Cherokee Indians, a soldier in the Rev. War, a friend of Daniel Boone. 
He relocated to Danville, Kentucky (in the part of Lincoln County that became Boyle County) in 1805. 
He named one of his sons John Holman Sneed born May 4, 1792; died June 4, 1876

* Peggy Sneed married Richard Johnson

* Susannah Sneed married George Faris
[Note: Benjamin Snead (born 1721) and his son-in-law, George Faris, were involved in litigation with David Higginbotham in Albemarle County, Virginia.]
[Question: Is this George Farris related to the George Farris (born 1776 in Laurel County, Kentucky) who married Martha McNeil (grand daughter of Neal McNeil) in Knox County in 1803?]

* Frances Sneed married David Garth (born about1751 Louisa Co., VA; died 1823 Henry Co. KY; soldier in Rev. War; son of John Garth)

Is the Nathan Holeman in the 1804 Wilson Co., Tennessee tax list the Nathaniel Holeman (1761-1813) of Henrico County, Virginia who married Alice Sneed? He was the son of the Nathaniel Holeman (1735-1804) who married Ann Winn in 1762 in Hanover Co., Virginia.


Notes from Person County Heritage Book
At the same time that North Carolina Indians were being forced to relocate to Oklahoma, Charles Holeman and Richard Holeman (sons of Richard Holeman & Rebecca Margaret Daniel) walked to western Tennessee to hunt. 
[The forced relocation of the Cherokee Nation from their lands (in Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee) occurred between 1836 and 1839.] I have found no indication that these nephews relocated to Wilson County, Tennessee.
