In Reply to: Holmes family - Vigo Co., IN by Dan Faries of 1000

To Dan Fairies, Cornell Holmes was my great grandfather on my father's side. My grandfather was named John Freeman Holmes at his birth as far as I know. He later took the last name of Whistler which was his step father's name. He was never formally adopted. The family ended up in Kansas and lived in or near Havana. I hope you check the board reglarly. It would be fun to see what each of us knows about the family. For instance, I always heard that Cornell Holmes had bright red hair and when he was young it was somewhat curly. He also had blue eyes and was tall and slim. My name is Ruth Farnham. Hope to hear from you.
