Note: Holman or Holeman both may be correct since he seemed to use both spellings interchangeably. Besides his headstone, one census record has the spelling Holeman. The rest of the records, a bio and my own uncle's middle name are all spelled Holman.

History of Delaware County, Indiana, Page 498. From www.eastes.org Leroy Eastes Family Historian.

Holman Eastes was born in what is now Union County, February 21, 1817, which was four years before that county was erected as a separate civic entity, his parents having been among the early pioneers on what then was the western frontier of settlement, for it was not until in the year following that the lands west in central Indiana were ceded to the government by the Indians. Before the lands in what is now Hancock county were all taken up Obediah Eastes, father of Holman Eastes, moved over into that part of the state, entered a tract of land for a home and there became a permanent resident. It was thus that Holman Eastes became a resident of Hancock county. In Rush county on December 22, 1836 he married Ruth Webb. He established his home in the Mt. Comfort neighborhood in Hancock county and there remained until in 1856, when he moved to the neighboring county of Madison and established his home on a farm in the Summitville neighborhood. In 1878 he disposed of his interests there and moved to the neighboring county of Grant, where his last days were spent, his death occurring on February 27, 1880. His widow survived him for more than twenty years, her death occurring on April 8, 1901. Holman Eastes was a Republican, a Methodist and a Freemason. For years he served his local public as justice of the peace and was widely known as 'Squire Eastes. To him and his wife were born eleven children. of whom three are still living,(At the time if this bio.), Doctor (William Thomas) Eastes having two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Jane Kelsey and Mrs. Jessie E. Ward. The other members of this family were Lemuel Franklin Eastes, Addison S., Lucinda A., Jasper Newton, Marshall Eastes, Albert 0, Meredith P. Eastes and Jerome.
