Daniel Richard Holmes
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1761
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 15, 1810
Union County
Pennsylvania, USA

Daniel married Margarett Woods, 23 Aug 1793, in North Middleton, Cumberland, PA. They had 7 known children:

-Jonathan (1794-1877)
-Elizabeth (b.1797)
-Samuel (b.abt.1797)
-Daniel B. (1799-1832)
-William Woods (1805-1837)
-Jane Ann (1807-1886)
-John (1810-1842)

He owned a farm in North Middleton where he lived the remainder of his life. Daniel died at age 49, leaving his wife to raise their 7 known children on her own. The oldest was 16 at the time of his death, the youngest an infant. The family is listed on census records in Middleton as early as 1793 and other census records indicate they did not leave the area. Margarett is listed as head of household in Middleton in 1830. It is not known why Daniel died some 70 miles away in Mifflinburg, PA, but his brother Jonathan Jr. also died in Mifflinburg, so it's possible he was up for a visit when he died. His burial is in Carlisle at the Old Graveyard.

Daniel's father Jonathan immigrated to the US from Ireland with his father (Nathaniel Sr.) and three brothers. Nathaniel Sr. and his brother Nathaniel Jr. went on to settle in Londonderry, NH. Jonathan and his two other brothers remained in Carlisle. Jonathan was a Lieutenant in 1748 with one of the first military companies in central PA and he was an elder of the First Presbyterian Church in Carlisle, PA.

Father: Jonathan Holmes Sr. (b. 1716, Ireland; d.22 Jun 1803, Carlisle, PA) burial unknown.
Mother: Jane Jennett (b.abt. 1730, PA), burial unknown.
