Mary Holmes, a native of Ireland, was born about 1813 and died after 1863. There is no known record of either her dates of birth and death, or of her family of origin. She was married to John Holmes, who died and was buried at sea during the family's crossing from Ireland to the United State. Mary was the mother of my great-grandmother, Fanny Holmes Neil, and of at least one other child, John. She immigrated to the United on the Thornton on 28 July 1863.
If anyone reading this is aware of a widowed Mary Holmes born about 1813, who either married or died in Pennsylvania or one of the surrounding states, I would appreciate hearing from you.
