Peter Cool (a son-in-law) and Jeriah Haver (a brother-in-law) were both related by marriage to the Joseph Holmes family:


"Joseph Holmes, son of James, lived and died in Walnut township, near Buckeye Lake; the farm is now owned by John Zollinger. He married a sister of Peter, George and Jerriah Haver and of Mrs. D. Pope, Mrs. Thomas Cherry, Mrs. John Meason and Mrs. John Brandon. A bevy of sisters noted for good taste and fine manners. They were prominent in a fine circle of nice people. Of the Methodist Church he was an honored and consistent member. He lived to a good old age, respected and honored by all who know him. He was a fine talker and it was a great pleasure to hear him at his best. He was a good looking man and his daughters, Mrs. Aldred and Mrs. Whittaker, were handsome women.

Peter Holmes was the oldest son of Joseph. When about thirty years of age he started from Cincinnati to New Orleans and was never heard of afterwards. William Holmes, son of Joseph, moved to near Fort Wayne, Ind. He became a stock dealer and soon moved to Pittsburg and engaged in the stock commission business at East Liberty. He died a few years since. Joshua, George and Reason were farmers. George lived a short time in Lancaster. George married a Reese, and Reason married a Thompson, and they spent their lives upon the old home farm. Upon the death of Reason, in due time, his widow married Peter Cool. Rebecca was the second wife of William Murphey, Sr. Hester died young. Elizabeth married David Cherry. He died in a few years and his widow married John Aldred, who recently died at Pataskala, Ohio. Nancy married John Whittaker and they moved to New Lexington, Ohio, where they were prominent and highly esteemed."
