It's been a while, and I have lots more info on the Hollemans. For any who want a quick overview, please search/see "Descendants of Jesse Holleman", an excellent compilation by John F Schunk.

Joel died January of 1862, probably from complications of pneumonia, which claimed the life of his younger brother Joseph at New Bern in February of 1862. They are currently buried side by side in my front yard.

Another brother (Silas) was captured and spent a year or so as a pow in a northern stockade. The war and losses must have taken a heavy toll, as he moved from the area shortly afterward and is buried beside his wife (Elizabeth) and their daughter (Minnie)in Carthage, NC.

Wyatt, having lost 3 sons to the war, declared bancruptcy during 1869 and eventually remarried Cornelia Burch after Martha died during 1878. I have a good idea of where he, his brother Wiley and father Jordan "were" buried, but am unable to verify as the markers may have been covered over/moved/whatever.

Current plans are to have the remains of Joel and Joseph relocated to the Confederate section of a local cemetery, and I would appreciate hearing from any relatives from the Jesse/Jordan Holleman side of the Family who want further information.

Wyatt Holleman was a founding father of Cary, NC and served as Grand Master of the Masonic lodge Chapter 198 for 10 years. He was truly a man among men, and should be recognized for his contributions to our local history. Any family pictures taken during the mid to late 1800's would be appreciated.
