Abraham Holmes 1752 Albany NY father Ninian Holmes??

I have an ancestor of Abraham Holmes born 1752 Albany NY, died in Kitley Township, Leeds Cty (Eloida) Ontario Canada 1822. Married to Sarah ONeil 1740 also from Albany NY. They had 5 children; Willian 1744, Hugh 1782,Sarah 1785, Richard 1787, Sophia 1791. Hugh is our direct lineage. I'm looking for Abraham's father. Some say it is a Ninian Holmes from Ireland. But no one has any proof or where in Ireland Ninian is from. When did Ninian Holmes come to NY?
Anyone with information would be greatly appreciated. I've been to the grave site of Abraham and his children and have photo's if anyone is interested
