All I have is that he was b. on 14 June 1852 in Lincoln Co., TN, they md. 24 June 1872 in Lincoln Co. & he died on Christmas Day in 1922 in Nashville @ the age of 70.
I have no info on his ancestry. However, if you go to the 1860 census for Lincoln County and look for a Holman family with a son Thomas about 8 yrs. old, you'll probably find his parents and brothers / sisters.
