Butler County Alabama 1815 to 1885 book written by JohnBuckner Little.   In chapter eight Little is talking about the early daysof Greenville AL.  On page 83, paragraph two he states:  "TheBolling Hotel with John Bolling as proprietor, was situated south of thecourthouse.  The proprietor of this primitive inn sold whisky andgroceries to his customers on the spot where the Bolling Bar now stands, andkept the accounts of his debtors on the walls of his store with long marks ofcharcoal. Old Uncle Johnnie was a rare specimen of Butlerian character and manyinteresting tales are still told of his native originality and shrewddisposition shown in the accumulation of this world's goods.  It is saidof this good old financier that he never allowed an opportunity for making adime to pass without making good use of it."
