I am descended of Alexander Erwin, and his wife, Mary Holmes.
Below is a list of their children. The were married in 1773 in County Tyrone, Ireland. They came to America between 1797 and 1800. They settled in Franklin Co., PA. My ancestor, who was their son, was Robert Erwin who left PA to go to Trumbull Co., OH where he met and married Sarah Leavitt. Robert and Sarah eventually moved to KY and on to Madison Co., AL where they lived the rest of their lives. If you have knowledge of this Erwin family or the Holmes family, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
