Likely siblings: (The following two names are listed on Sarah Hollis’ probate papers as her “heirs” receiving an equal share as her other children in probate.  This likely means that James Hollis Sr and Sarah Hollis had their own children named John and Moses.  These would appear to be a different set of John and Moses Hollis than Moses Hollis and Catherine Hollis’ children – so look for two different John and Moses about the same age as they are cousins likely living nearby or living in the same areas).
