Classification: Query
Surnames: HOLMES, CROWDER, BAKER
I was told by a researcher named Patricia Yaws (I believe that was her lastname) that in 1787 William Holmes and wife Elizabeth Crowder lived at Mountain Creek, Mecklenburg County, VA, and that this William was a Jr. So that would make him a son of William Holmes Sr. But who would be the William Sr. and his wife?
The William Jr. supposively wrote a will in 1798, and was proved 13 July 1801. In this will it lists his wife Elizabeth and five children: Polly (Mary), Sukey (Susan), Edmond, George and Patsey (Martha?).
The daughter Mary "Polly" listed in this will is suppose to be my ancestor Mary "Polly" Holmes that married James Baker 4 Oct. 1809 in Mecklenburg County, VA.
I believe this is the right family, with Elizabeth's lastname being Crowder, because when Mary and James married, it lists a Richard Crowder (which I think he put up the bond for them or was a witness or something), and Elizabeth had a brother named Richard. James and Mary (Holmes) Baker oldest son was named William Holmes Baker, and also had a son named James C. Baker, which the middle name could have been Crowder, also their second son was named Richard Thomas Baker.
