1 June 1905Platteville, Grant, WisconsinHe appeared on the census of 1 June 1905 at Platteville, Grant, Wisconsin.
     WILLIAM S. HOLMES, a retired farmer residing in Platteville, Grant county, and a valiant ex-soldier of the United States volunteer army, was born in Sugar Grove, Penn; March 23, 1839, a son of P. A. and Rosanna (BULSOM) HOLMES, the former a native of the State of New York, and the latter of the Keystone State.

P. A. HOLMES brought his wife and child to Grant county, Wis., in 1840, and settled on a farm near Platteville, where he died in 1874, leaving his widow with ten children. The widow is a present living in Georgetown, Grant county, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mary E. GRAHAM. Of the family of ten children, William S., is the eldest; James W., born in Grant county, Wis., was a soldier for two years in Company F, 3d Wis. V.I., in the Civil war, was wounded at Cedar Mountain, was honorably discharged and settled in Missouri, where he died, leaving no family; Martha M. is the deceased wife of John HENDERSON, of Missouri; Emmett was a soldier in the 20th Wis. V.I., was wounded at Prairie Grove, and there died; Mary E., is the wife of James L., GRAHAM, of Georgetown; Joseph W. is married and lives in Wilsonville, Neb., but has no children; John C. is a farmer at Sanborn, Iowa, and has a family of eleven children; Abigail E., deceased wife of Robert QUINGLEY, left no family; Robert is a resident of Dubuque, Iowa; Susan, widow of Marshall COOPER, also resides in Dubuque with her children.

As he was the eldest of the family, William S. HOLMES received but a limited education when young, and worked on the farm until he enlisted in 1861, in Company F, 3d Wis. V.I., which he took part in numerous battles, including Maryland Heights, Antietam, Gettysburg, Chancellorsville and Beverly Ford, and was with Gen. Pope in his retreat across the Potomac; was also at Winchester, served under Gen. Hooker, and likewise was with Gen. Sherman on his celebrated march through Georgia. His military career ended at Averysboro, N.C., where he was shot through the leg by a minie ball, from the effects of which wound he was confined in hospital for four months on David's Island, New York Harbor, and there received an honorable discharge, and returned to Grant county.

In July 1873, Mr. HOLMES married Miss Selena J. PIDDINGTON for his first wife. He then purchased the old home place on which he lived until 1896, when he retired to Platteville and erected for himself an elegant dwelling. In May, 1897, Mrs. Selena HOLMES passed away, leaving him with one daughter Elizabeth, now the wife of Charles ROUSE, of Grant county, and the mother of one child, Ethel. In March, 1898, Mr. HOLMES chose for his second wife, Mrs. Elizabeth HOADLEY, a sister of his first wife. Mrs. Elizabeth HOLMES was born near Manchester, England, in 1843, and is a daughter of Matthew and Elizabeth PIDDINGTON, who came to America in 1849, and settled on a farm in Grant county, on which they passed the remainder of their lives. At their death they left two daughters - Mrs. HOLMES and Mrs. Sarah HINDMAN, of Harrison, Grant county. By her first husband Mrs. HOLMES became the mother of two children, namely: George W. HOADLEY, who resides near the Block House, in Grant county, and is the father of two children, Guy W., and Cynthia E; and Gertrude HOADLEY, at the age of sixteen years, was graduated from the State Normal school, at Platteville, and is now a popular teacher in the public schools of the county. In politics Mr. HOLMES is a Republican, but has never been an officer seeker nor an office holder. He and wife have made many friends since they came to reside in Platteville, and their life would be one of unalloyed enjoyment, but for the fact that Mr. HOLMES at times suffers greatly from the serious wound he received in his gallant defense of his nation's flag.

It has been suggested his mother remarried to a man whose name was Edward Riley and for some years they made their home in Fauquier County, Virginia. In the year 1777 he went to the Fauquier County courthouse and enlisted in the militia. He served 3 to 5 years and was supposedly at The Battle of Brandywine, Battle of the Cowpens, and The Siege of Yorktown. He was discharged and came back to Fauquier County and in that same county on December 21, 1786, he married Elizabeth Hudnall, the daughter of Joseph Hudnall and Mary Ann Taylor. How often the family moved around during the next twenty years is unknown but it is rumoured that John had traveled to Mayesville, Mason County, Kentucky with his brother-in-law Benjamin Hudnall as Tennant Farmers. What I do know is that by 1810 they seem to have made a permanent home in Kanawha County (W.)Va. When the family first arrived in Kanawha they lived somewhere on Paint Creek, later John bought some land from William Morris on Kelly's Creek (which is located in Cedar Grove, WV) and in 1828 he received more of the same land from the Govenor by way of a land grant. Their neighbors included the Morris family and the Hansford Family. They attended the first church in the area, which was established in 1786 by the Elder James Johnson and was called Kanawha Baptist Church. John had lost his oldest son William around 1830, so he went to live with his son John, who in 1816 had relocated to Randolph County, Indiana. Around the time of his relocation to Indiana, the war department was looking for soldiers whose records were destroyed by fire in 1812. In 1833, Elizabeth was still living and where she died may always be a mystery. John stayed for a couple years in Indiana before setting of on the rest of his journey. From Indiana he traveled through Illinois, Arkansas, and to Bowie County, Texas with his son Nathan. In 1851 John Edward Jr. went west for a herd and to bring his aging father with him back to what was then and now called Elkhart County, Indiana. Upon his return to Indiana, he proceeded to try to claim his pension and was denied it for lack of proof. He died in Elkhart County, Indiana at the home of his son on January 11, 1856 and was buried in the Heaton Family Cemetery, now named the John Proctor Cemetery. John and Elizabeth's children were; William Proctor was born 1787 Fauquier County Va. He married Anna Martin September 14, 1806 in Kanawha County, (W)Va. And died c1830 in Kanawha County, (W)Va. What became of his children is unknown at this time but it is assumed they went to Indiana to live with their Uncle John. John Proctor was born 1791 and died in Elkhart County, Indiana. He married Rebecca Spangler in Kanawha County, (W)Va in the year 1813. John and Rebecca left Kanawha County in 1816 to move to Indiana. Frances Proctor was born c1788 and married Joseph Hughes, both Frances and her husband Joseph were dead in 1850, it is not known where they died. Reuben Proctor was born 1799 and married Jane Hudnall, Jane was the daughter of Benjamin Hudnall and Nancy Riley. Reuben and Jane remained in Kanawha County. Tyler Proctor was born 1798 in Kanawha County and died c1853 in that same county. Tyler married Mary Hudnall, also a daughter of Benjamin Hudnall and Nancy Riley c1823. Tyler and Mary remained in Kanawha County. Mary died after 1870 and is found selling her Dowager rights from the land on Paint Creek to Aaron Stockton. Nathan Proctor was born 1796 and married Sarah /unknown/. Nathan and Sarah moved to Bowie County, Texas. There is a Mayberry Proctor born c1810, it is not known whether he belonged to John Proctor Senior or to his son William. (From The WVGenWeb Project Kanawha County Biography Library).
