And the generations and the documentation just keep on appearing… All-things-being-equal I haven’t clicked on any leaves, it just takes some considerable amount of time researching and digging, and digging and researching… and searching and searching.
From the Calvary Episcopal Church of Tamaqua, Pennsylvania Baptism Register I chanced upon the 7 May 1854 Baptism Registration of great-grandfather John Eugene Holmes. His parents are registered as great-great-grandparents Audley and Rebecca Holmes. Great-Grandfather John Eugene’s birthdate is listed as 20 June 1853.
And my transcription –
DATE. – May 7th " (1854)
NAME. – John Eugene. –
PARENTS. – Audley & Rebecca Holmes
SPONSORS. – The Parents –
BIRTH. – June 20th, 1853
OFF. CLERGYMAN & REMARKS –
It does take time to find a document and relevant information and data.
A point of note – it is amazing the repetition of the name “John Eugene” through the generations of the family lines.
And just you wait until you read what I have most recently found. Definitely stay-tuned.
