HOLMES, HALL, DAVIDSON Connection
Well, a lot happened in 2000 and now its 2013, over a decade later. Below is a note I got from Nell; I don't know if I ever responded but I found this in some old computer docs. I have more information on this line and am curious about the HALL connection, especially to the Holmes. My third great grandfather was Calvin Hall Holmes who hailed from Collin Co. Texas and brought long horned cattle out to California with his brother, Henderson Phineas Holmes. Calvin was a California Pioneer. His father was Phineas Holmes, and his mother Rachel Stuart or Stewart. That couple wound up on Osage Creek where he had a mill in Bentonville, Arkansas. Why did they name him Calvin HALL Holmes. I would like to find out before I kick the bucket.
Nell, are you still out there?
