bullet  General Notes:

James Holmes and wife Sarah came to Stephens County, Texas in 1868 (bringing with them a Mrs. Mary Reed and her two sons, Jim and Caroll. Their husband and father, also a Confederate soldier, had died of the measles.) They settled east of
Ivan, Texas near the mouth of Cedar Creek where it empties into the Brazos River. They lived for sometime in the covered wagons, then added a tent for added living space, and finally built a one room log house.
