My e-mail is RHolmes265@aol.com.I would very much like to see what they wrote in their wills.
My Holmes family still lives in Wurtsboro, N. Y. and I can trace them back to Newburgh in the late 1780's.My problem is that I have not found the father of John Holmes who married Charlotte Jane Jackson.They are my ggg-grandparents.I have all from them to present, but so far not his parents.
I know of the entire family of Burroughs Holmes, Elizabeth's father, back to 1580's and many of the branches.I just haven't found the Newburgh connection to John yet.But I will!
I have John's family bible but unfortunately nothing about his ancestors, only descendants.
Thank you for whatever you have and if I can be of any help please let me know.
