Abraham Holmes 1670

ABRAHAM WAS BORN 1670 ( EST ), of Ballygelagh, Ballyaghran Parish &, Ballyreagh, Ballywillin Parish. According to my records Abraham is the son of William Holmes b. 1640 & the grandson of Ninian Holmes b. 1610 of Ballyaghran.

Abraham had 2 other brothers, William a merchant in Coleraine who had a son Samuel & Nathaniel b. 1690 married to Janet Hunter. This line of Nathaniel immigrated to the U.S.

Abraham 1670 had 4 sons, Abraham b. 1700 ( est ) married to Janet Hopkins of Ballykelly, Ninian b. 1715 of Ballywillin Parish, Samuel of Coleraine, who had a son Samuel born in Dublin & lastly, Paul who had a son Abraham.

My problem is whom was Abraham married to, what year he passed away &
if at all possible information about his sons Samuel & Paul?

I also have a posting comparable to this under surnames, since we are talking about Ireland, I thought I would try here.

I know Irish genealogy is the hardest to do, but any more information on these matters would be " GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! "
