Holmans - New Jersey to Kentucky

Holmans - New Jersey to Kentucky

Classification: Query
Surnames: Holman, Ramsey

I am researching James Holman (Holeman, Holdman), born about 1814 in Madison Co., Ky, married Martha Ramsey on Jun 04, 1835 in Garrard Co., Ky, and died around 1886 in Crab Orchard, Lincoln Co., Ky.
He is the earliest documented Holman in my family tree.

My cousin is a direct male descendant of this James Holman (great, great grandson). He recently was tested by Family Tree DNA. His results are 37 of 37 markers match with the results for a direct male descendant of Kenneth Holman (b: 1787 d: 31 Mar 1871 in Upperfreehold, Monmouth Co., New Jersey).

I am trying to find the common ancestor for these two Holmans.

Any suggestions for possible links between Holmans in New Jersey and Kentucky?

I know a Holman who may have some info that may be useful to you. If you would like to message me directly through I can give you her email or phone number.
She mentioned that there are 2 Holmans directly from Scotland and had a land grant in the 1700 or 1800's but there is a gap after that. Same gap you hit maybe. If you email her , she will be happy to share with you any information that will assist you.
Good Luck!
