Obituary: Dies Near Juno: Joseph H. Holmes, 73, son of the late John and Mrs. Caroline Jackson Holmes, was born in Henderson County, and died May 20, 1941, at this home in Juno seven miles west of Lexington. The cause of his death was diabetes with complications. Mr. Holmes was twice married, first to Miss Sallie Wilson, who bore him three children: Mrs. Fred Nevils, of Bemis; Mrs. Guy B. Amis and Leroy Holmes of Lexington. His second marriage was to Mrs. Mary McIntire Howell, who survives him with one of the two surviving children. He had long been affiliated with the Methodist Church, his membership being with the older branch of M.E. Church, previous to the consolidation of the three Methodist Churches, and has long been associated with the church at Poplar Springs. Morally, Mr. Holmes was a man of clean character and reputation and in his daily life, and I having known him for more than fifty years, believe he tried to follow the Golden Rule and such was his manner of life that his neighbors, who were a host in number, as well as his many relatives, will revere his memory. Rev. E.M. Trammell conducted the funeral services at Poplar Springs Methodist Church with interment in Lexington Cemetery.
They had the following children:
