I've noted several people here have Daniel Holman in their listings of ancestors:

Daniel Holman b. abt 1700, Dorchester, Mass. m. Rachel (MNU) of Essex, Virginia

I was recently in Quicksburg and took several photographs of the area, including a few of Holmans Creek. None of the buildings are likely from his time, but they are never the less very old. A subsequent landowner built a plantation mansion and outbuildings around 1840,which are in the process of being renovated. The area is beautiful.

Am very willing to share them with anybody who has not seen the place.

Thank you so much for the pedigree information on Gaspar Franco! It was so helpful in my research! I found a few items of interest to this family line that I would like to share. I am a descendent of Gaspar Franco through his second wife, Longina Landa Garcia. I have read through and roughly translated the original records available through FamilySearch and the notecards of Mii Familias author, Rodolfo de la Garza. Here's the pedigree I have:
Roque Franco
  Atanacio Franco (b.1734, Federal District)
       Rafael Franco (b. 1775, registered in Vallecillo)
             Ramon Franco (b. 1797, registered in Vallecillo)
                   Gaspar Franco b. 1935 d. 1910 Agualeguas (March 19th, reported by my great grandfather in      Vallecillo)
                         George (aka Jorge) Franco b.1884, Agualeguas, registered in Vallecillo, d. 1964, 
                            Zavala County, Texas
                                 George Franco, Jr. b. 1919, Zavala County, Texas
Ramon Franco is referred to as "Don Ramon Franco" and Gaspar Franco is referred to as "Don Gaspar Franco" in the Vallecillo records. In addition, my great great grandmother, Longina, is referred to as "Dona Longina Garcia, even before her marriage to Gaspar. In those days, you were only referred to as "Don" or "Dona" if you were wealthy, had land, and/or a community elite. Their professions were noted as Farmers.
       While I found a record with Rafael as the son of Atanacio, Mr. Roldolfo de la Garza points to Antonio (brother to Atanacio) as being the founding father of Gaspar's lineage. I disagree as, unlike Mr. de la Garza, I have access to the electronic records that show Rafael's father as Atanacio and mother, Petra Lopez. According to Mr. de la Garza, Atanacio did father a "Diego" with a Native Mexican named Justa. However, Mr. de la Garza notes that Gaspar Franco does not descend from this line. His notes also point to another group of Francos not related to our shared line, this group may not have been Francos, but, a surname shortened from Francisco to Franco.
        My great grandfather was blue eyed, had light brown hair and a fair complexion. His sisters had brown hair and eyes with fair complexions. Family history was that our family, and their neighbors, were forced to leave in 1914 by one of the revolutionary factions. My family moved to Zavala County, Texas as my great grandmother had inherited land from her family that had purchased the land in 1842. It is now within the boundaries of Crystal City, Texas.
       If anyone is interested in the record locations on, please let me know. I'd be happy to share!

Jesse McCrary was raised by George and Sarah McCrary. Born in 1842, he can be found in George McCrary's household in 1850 and 1860. He served in the Civil War, and in 1869, married Elizabeth Love Bruce. She later claimed that Jesse went to live with his father, Lewis Jefferson Treece, after the Civil War. He then went by Jesse McCrary Treece.

Lewis Jefferson Treece's father was George Treece, b. 1787. George had another son, Joshua Madison. Through Y-DNA, the Treece DNA project has matched a descendant of Joshua Madison to a Descendant of Jesse McCrary, providing supporting evidence for the story of Jesse McCrary Treece.

During the crusades a daughter in the holy land had a son with a local man.  When the family returned to England or Europe the lord de la Feld might have offered the fertile crescent man wealth if he would take and use his name---de la Feld.

The same  could have happened in Ireland or England and the outsider took the Feld, Felde, Field, de la Feld name for land and money.  It happened quite often.

A wife might have met with another man and conceived a child by him without telling the husband.

An adoption of a male child would probably bring another Y type into the family.

Some us are related through a Field woman others a Field man.
