In this same letter, John mentions David's sons: Paul, Simon and Samuel. Another son to David was living in Oregon.

John lived in Roane County, TN; Thomas in Noxubee County, Mississippi, and this David might have actually lived in Harrison County, MO. But it seems too coincidental to find the names in the 1872 letter all buying land in DeKalb county, and then they would not be &quotour" HOLMES.
