[M H Mosher in John Freeman of Norfolk Co, VA p 34]

did Elizabeth marry Edward Outlaw bef May 1753?
1. John Hollomon bef 1752 – 1824
married Marina
2. William Holloman bef 1752 – [went to KY?James ]
3. Mary Holloman bef 1752 –

note from James Hollomon to me. “John, son of Benj. could not have been John who m. Marina.
despite Jimmy’s opinion, I think this John is the son of Benjamin & Elizabeth
and I see that Helen Leary agrees with me with her proof.

Marina possibly an Outlaw.

e-mail from Lynn Holloman Fussinata Jan 18 2012
“Professional genealogist Helen Leary of Raleigh, NC, recently (2011) published an article in the North Carolina Journal of Genealogy on the Hollomans of Bertie and Hertford Counties and Ms Leary indicates that the John Holloman who died in Bertie Co. NC in 1824 was the son of Benjamin (d. 1752) BECAUSE that John passed to his children at his death in 1824 the same land that Benjamin had owned in 1752 that would have passed to Benjamin’s oldest son John by the law of primogeniture (in effect back in 1752) when a man died without a will.”
