Still haven’t had the guts (no pun intended) to crack open a can of Scottish Haggis… but the idea of McHaggis, Scottish Macaroni and Cheese, Haggis Omelet, Pâté au haggis, and Scottish Tacos all seem “somewhat” interesting. And so this morning I settled for a breakfast of smoked herring, fried eggs, fried green tomatoes, and onions, followed by a homemade “Starbucks-like” coffee… I can just imagine the somersaults my blood sugars are fending for their Olympic challenge.
Well enough of my repast. Back to my Holmes Family genealogy search and research.
In the pursuit of recreating the configuration of the Holmes Family Tree I have gathered and discussed the 1850 and the 1880 US Censuses from Tamaqua and Rahn in Schuylkill County. Also I have deliberated on the 1891 Schuylkill County Directory based on the 1890 US Federal Census. Today I am now highlighting the John and Hannah Holmes Family in the 1900 US Census.
It appears that at some time between 1890 and prior to the 12th or 13th of June, 1900 the Holmes Family relocated to Abbott Street in Lansford in Carbon County.

There is at least one error in the reporting in this page of the Census at Line #7 which reports great-grandmother Hannah Holmes.
