Christopher Hoomes, St. Mark's Parish, Culpeper Co., Virginia
Have begun a book based on the life of this man, Christopher Hoomes, of Culpeper County, Virginia. He died testate in Culpeper Co., VA., in 1785. In his will he leaves his home place to his "reputed son", William Sherrill, son of Margaret Sherrill, alias Perkins.
I need help finding out his true parentage. My own research leads me to believe he was a son of Dr. George Hoomes, of "Bowling Green", Caroline Co., Virginia. Most genealogies list that son,Christopher,as having died in 1753. I think not. Please, if anyone can prove my suspicions wrong, let me know. I don't want to make a "jump-off" conclusion about this Christopher, but I think he was of that Caroline County family of Hoomes, and not the son of John Holmes, of Prince William Co., Virginia.
thanks in advance, Anthony Lewis
