This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

This man is #3B5 in “The Hollyman Family”

Christopher Hollimon appeared in what is now Hertford County by 12 Feb 1728/29 when he bought 400 a. on Wiccacon Creek adj James Foyle from John Early. Christopher Hollomon settled on N side of Stony Creek in present day Hertford County NC. By about 1759 his son Samuel Hollomon had bought all of Christopher’s land and his brothers had bought from their Byrd uncles land on S side Stony Creek.
Christopher [Sr] is not on 1757 Bertie tax list -prob over 60 or dead.
