at Unknown, Possibly Citadel in SC, South Carolina


Claire Zahn Recently, during research, it was found that, the Holmes is William H. and not William E who was his father and that the Citadel has written to me letting me know this photo was NOT taken at the Citadel. Therefore, it is possible that the photo was taken somewhere near Poughkeepsie, NY and that the men with William could possibly be Ringwoods, who were William's in-laws. We are still unsure as to who the young men are. They could also be Holmes from the Charleston, South Carolina area.
