Ogilvie in Oglethorpe County

I am looking for an Ogilvie who was a Methodist Minister probably in Oglethorpe County, Georgia. He and his wife would have died sometime after 1848 and before 1860. He had 3 children that I know of-Sarah Rebecca-born January 19, 1846; Mary V. born about 1842 and William B. born about 1848. The family was related to the Holmes family of John and William Holmes. These two Holmes brothers left Georgia after 1850 and removed to DeSoto Parish, Louisiana. I believe that John Holmes wife was Elizabeth Temperance Ogilvie, possibly a sister to the three children above or at least some relation. The 3 Holmes children were living with John and Elizabeth Holmes in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana in 1860 and Sarah Rebecca married their son James William Holmes in 1866. I have a copy of Sarah Rebecca Ogilvie Holmes obituary from the Abilene Reporter News in Abilene, Texas when she died in 1930 with the details regarding her father and the birth and marriage information. I would love to hear from others who are related to these two families especially the Ogilvie family.
