Trying to find anyone with info concerning Holmes families of Greenwich, CT. Have traced Bates Holmes back to his death in 1859, 2 marr. 1804 and 1809. The 1804 marr. was to Elizabeth Banks per Stanwich Cong. Church records. The 1809 marr. was to Mary Holmes per 2nd Cong. Church ( Greenwich). No indication if this marr. was recorded incorrectly or Mary was a widow of another Holmes. 'Jacobus' states that Mary was Mary Banks.
Years of searching have not found Bates' parents or any siblings. Many Holmes' in Greenwich during this period but no record of Bates' birth. Found Bates in 1810 census and in 1850 living in home of James Brush. Nothing in 1820, 30 or 40.
Suspect that Bates was family name of Bates' mother or grandmother. There was a Bates Ferris and a Bates Hoyt/Hait in Greenwich whose common parentage might be Bates family along with Bates Holmes.
Any info on any Holmes from Greenwich might add clue to solution of this puzzle.

The US census is a well-known tool for genealogical research. Most of us
use the population schedule to locate ancestors geographically and fill
in blanks in our family histories. We can learn a great deal of
information from these censuses ranging from age to workplace including
birthplace, immigration and literacy.
In this lecture you will learn about additional schedules filled in by
enumerators, primarily in the years 1850-1880. These included:
Mortality, Agriculture, Industry/Manufacture and Social Statistics. Come
and find out the details of your ancestor's life in the world of work
and get an overview of the towns and cities of the period.
Admission is free. However, please RSVP with the number of attendees to
the Historical Collections Department at (203) 576-7417 or via email to
