George HOLMES was born on 19 Jul 1858 in Henderson Co. TN.33,515 He died in 1940 in Henderson Co. TN.33 Holmes, G. W., 7/19/1858-1/27/1940 He was buried in 1940 in Center Hill Cemetery, Lexington, TN.33 Parents: Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES and Lucinda LITTLE.

James M. HOLMES was born about 1848 in NC.515 He died in 1923 in Henderson Co. TN.33,516 Holmes: J. M., 1849-1923/Elizabeth, 1857-1938 He was buried in 1923 in Center Hill Cemetery, Lexington, TN.33 Parents: Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES and Lucinda LITTLE.

John Pinkney HOLMES was born on 10 Oct 1852.516 He died on 10 Oct 1911 in Henderson Co. TN.516,517 J.P. Holmes is listed in the Tennessee Death Index, certificate No. 42461. He was buried about 10 Oct 1911 in Union Hill Cemetery, Henderson Co. TN.516 Holmes, John Pinkney; October 10, 1852-October 10, 1911 Parents: Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES and Lucinda LITTLE.

Joseph HOLMES was born on 10 Jul 1846 in NC.33,515 The 1860 census shows Joseph as 14, which would make him born about 1846. The birthdate assumes that J.A. Holmes buried at Center Hill cemetery is Joseph. He died on 12 May 1917 in Henderson Co. TN.33 He was buried about 12 May 1917 in Center Hill Cemetery, Lexington, TN.33 I am not certain that the J.A. Holmes buried in Center Hill Cemetery is Joseph Holmes, but it looks likely since at least two of his brothers are buried in this cemetery and the age is close to that provided by the 1860 census (which would have been about 1846).

The marker says: Holmes: M. A., 5/27/1850-____, "Wife of J. A. Holmes" "Mother"/J. A., 7/10/1846-5/12/1917, "Husband of M. A. Holmes" "Father" Parents: Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES and Lucinda LITTLE.

Mary J. HOLMES was born in 1860 in Henderson Co. TN.515 Mary J. was 4 mos at the time of the census. Parents: Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES and Lucinda LITTLE.

Miles F. HOLMES was born on 22 Oct 1842 in Anson Co. NC.516 Miles' headstone says he was 66 yrs, 11 mos. and 8 days old when he died on 30 Sep 1909., which would make him born 22 Oct. 1842. The marker also says he was born in 1843. He died on 30 Sep 1909 in Henderson Co. TN.516,517 Miles Holmes is listed in the Tennessee Death Index, certificate No. 42522. He was buried about 30 Sep 1909 in Union Hill Cemetery, Henderson Co. TN.516 Holmes, Mile F.; 1843 - September 30, 1909; Aged 66 years 11 months 8 days; Civil War Veteran
Parents: Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES and Lucinda LITTLE.

Spouse: Amanda J. UNKNOWN. Miles F. HOLMES and Amanda J. UNKNOWN were married.33

Sarah HOLMES was born about 1812 in North Carolina.518 I am guessing that Jas Little family listed in the 1840 census on the same page as James Holmes is this family. The female is 20-30, making her birthdate 1810-1820. It seems possible that Sarah Holmes is the daughter of the James Holmes listed on the same page and the sister of Theophilus Holmes who married Lucinda Little, possibly a sister of James Little. Both the James Little family and the Theophilus Holmes family moved to Henderson Co. TN.

The 1850 census lists her age as 38, making her born about 1812. She was buried in Center Hill Cemetery, Lexington, TN.33

Spouse: James "Jimmy" LITTLE. James "Jimmy" LITTLE and Sarah HOLMES were married.519 Children were: Sophia LITTLE, George W. LITTLE, Susan E. LITTLE, Edmond D. LITTLE, M. Emeline LITTLE, James M. LITTLE, Harry F. LITTLE, H.S. LITTLE, William P. LITTLE, Sarah? E. LITTLE.

Theopholis (Orpha) HOLMES was born on 8 Sep 1818 in North Carolina.520 In 1850, Theophilus was 32, in 1860 (called Orpha) he was 45, and in 1880, Theo was 61. He appeared in the census in 1850 in Union Co. NC. Theophilus Holmes, 32, Farmer, value of real estate 110; Lucinda 26; Miles F., 7; Joseph A. 4; James M. 1. Next door is Coleman Lee, followed by Isabel Little, Lot Sinclair, and Rachel Little. Immediately preceding Theo Holmes is Susanna Holmes 63 with James M. 22 and Sarah 19.

In 1840, James Holmes was listed as 50-60, with a male 20-30 who could be Theophilus, 1 male 5-10, and 2 males under 5; a female 40-50 (which is not quite right for Susanna but could work), and females 20-30, 10-15, and 5-10. Nearby is Josua Preslar and fairly close (same page) are Plesant M. Little and Jas Little. Jas. Little is 30-40, with 1 male 5-10, 1 male under 5, 1 female 20-30, and 1 under 5. This family would work for James Little and Sarah Holmes, parents of George W. Little who later marries Curantha Preslar. He appeared in the census in 1860 in Henderson Co. TN.515 HOLMES, Orpha 45 f w NC; Lucinda 38 f w NC; Miles F. 17 m w NC; Joseph 14 m w NC
James M 12 m w NC; Martha Ann 10 f w NC; James P 7 m w NC; William T 5 m w TN; George W 2 m w TN; Mary J 4/12 f w TN
He appeared in the census in 1880 in Henderson Co. TN. Theo Holmes (61), wife Lucinda (58), sons George & Riley are on Ed. 62, pg 12. James M. is on pg 11, and Milas F. is on pg 9. He died on 8 May 1910 in Henderson Co. TN.517,520 Opie Holmes is listed in the Tennessee Death index, certificate no. 42521. He was buried about 8 May 1910 in Union Hill Cemetery, Henderson Co. TN.520 Thelophilas Holmes, Sept. 8, 1818 - May 8, 1910 On 21 Mar 1832, Abner Proctor sold land formerly belonging to Ira Proctor,deceased, to William Grace. Theophilus Homes and Mary Holmes also conveyed their part of Lot No. 3. Theophilus stated his name as Offy Homes, but signed Theophilus. Perhaps this Theophilus Holmes was the father of Theopholis who married Lucinda. (Anson Deed Bk Y&Z, pg 150)

Spouse: Lucinda LITTLE. Children were: Miles F. HOLMES, Joseph HOLMES, James M. HOLMES, Martha Ann HOLMES, John Pinkney HOLMES, William Thomas HOLMES, George HOLMES, Mary J. HOLMES.

William HOLMES appeared in the census in 1850 in Anson Co. NC.514 He died before 1860.514 Reportedly, a tree fell on him. Annie Lee Traywick tried to find this family in the 1850 Union and Anson Co. censuses with no luck, but she was likely looking for William Helms, like the CGS article listed.

Bob Dellinger says the name is really Holmes - not Helms as Annie Lee thought. That could be why Annie Lee couldn't find the family.

Spouse: Matilda LITTLE. William HOLMES and Matilda LITTLE were married on 7 Apr 1845 in Union Co. NC.326 Bondsman was Jesse Little. CGS listed the groom as William HELMS, not Holmes.
