My Grandma was Elsie Holmanmarried to James Tillman McCarty. I think it was her uncles who were named Sylvester Sylvanus Sylvenus and Rolly Holman.Dad called them Uncle Vene Uncle Vess and Uncle Van. Vene and Vess I think were in the civil war and survived andersonville prison barely. They were never the same health wise. I would like to know more about the Holman McCarty Connection which evidently goes way back perhaps to Virginia. There was a McCArty and a Holman who started the Wynn Dixie Grocery Chain in the South but I have not made a connection as yet. Any information would be helpful. Where is Holman Creek located?
Ned Thornton McCarty.
ps Thornton was my Dads name --named after his Uncle Thorntie Holman.
