Rufus Holmes was my grandfather's great uncle. Si, my great great great uncles. He would have a great many nieces and nephews. I am not familiar with any diect decendents.

The story as I heard it is:

Upon returning to Wayne county after the surrender, the group encountered a union troop and fired upon them. Te group was chased into Arkansas where they were executed. Families were notified and traveled by horse and wagon to retrieve the bodies.
