And who says you can’t find the 1890 US Census? Well almost, that is. In my search for the genealogy and history of the Holmes Family of Pennsylvania I stumbled across a great discovery. I found A Directory of the Eleventh Census of the Population of Schuylkill County… published in 1891 by E.E. Schartel in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
What does this mean?
And we have lucked out. On Page 733 of the Schuylkill County Directory I have been able to find our Holmes, even though spelled Holms, Family in Rahn Township. The entry includes great-grandparents John E. and Hannah and their children, as the date, granduncles John H., Warren T. William V., Richard B., and grandaunts Rebecca, Alice M., Katie, and Dora.
Here is a highlighted copy of Page 733.
