I just checked familysearch.org. There is a lot of information about Chatham Holmes and family on the site. It is as free website, you just need to register to search. Also, someone has started a Holmes family tree.
If you need more help please do not hesitate to ask

Dear Ms. Holmes,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Federal Government does not ordinarily create or maintain birth, death, marriage or divorce records. Such records are made and kept by State and local governments rather than the National Archives.
We suggest you begin your search at the Pender County Recorder of Deeds for birth, death & marriage records; the Pender County Library Genealogy Resources; and the FamilySearch Research wiki for North Carolina Genealogy and African American Online Genealogy Records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
