Bob Holmes

I am interested in any info about my family history. My ancestories were from Cromarty area and emigrated to Canada in 1880's. The lineage is John Holme (married to Jane or Jean Munro); Enoch Holme, b.1824 Fearne Rosshire,(m Mary Cameron, Cromarty). I believe Enoch came to Canada in 1880's as my Grandfather Wallace was born here in 1888. Any coneection to these folks would be welcome...Bob
