Charles Holmes, born abt 1840









We do not know how, when or where Americans of African and or Native American  heritage came into possession of the surname "Holmes."  Yet, we know the name originated in America by persons from somewhere other than America.  Herein this page is the challenge of joining reasoning to our faith that all were born, not made by irreverent circumstances.


The above link suggests that histories are non-existent for Holmes of African heritage, yet we know personally many are known to exist even in Virginia and other places like Massachusetts wherein many thousands of young men coming to America were seamen indentured in many tasks at land and sea. 


The above link is an excellent example as to a stories beginning is lost unless scholars begin with functional generations.
