My cousin is a descendant of Christine Holmes Blake's brother, Paul Holmes..their father was George H. Holmes. Edward H. was born in Maine in 1841, Christine (or Christiana) in New London, CT 1845. They had one daughter, Maude Blake who married a man named Evert or Ernest Howard, and they also lived in New London, and had 3 children, Robert, Kathleen and Kenneth. My cousin would enjoy learning about distant cousins..anyone out there a relative of hers?? Barb W.
