Charles Holmes, born abt 1840                    Wife:  Esther

Charles Holmes, is perhaps or likely the ancestor of Barbara Holmes an educator whose documented ancestry has been made available to us via offspring generations, and correlated with distant relative ancestry of Robert Edward Lee, born abt 1920 who is perceived to be a distant offspring of Matilda Lee, abt 1800.

Our emphasis herein is about people we know who perceived themselves to be brother and sisters in Christ, with and without documentation. Clearly their indoctrination was propagated by someone.
