The Perry County Heritage Book by Heritage Publishing consultants, Inc. P.O. Box 67, Clanton, AL 35046 1 - 800 - 568 -1611 "The Bollings" "From these beginnings came Samuel "Colling" Bolling and his wife Elizabeth Townsend who settled at Radfordsville in Perry County, Alabama. One of their sons, Samuel Milton Bolling married Ann Dobyne and moved to the eastern part of the County to Pinetucky Beat about 1819, where they bought land and a house. sometime during these years Samuel Milton Bolling served a term or two in the State Legislature in Montgomery as a Senator. They had four children." As this older generation passed away, two of the sons Nathaniel "Preston" Bolling and Samuel Jackson Bolling were living there on the adjacent farms. They reared their families in a close knit bond of love and fellowship. When their children were approaching the need for a higher education, the parents decided to move to Centreville, Alabama to put their children in school there. The elder son in each family, Cousin "Alex" Bolling, and Mr. "Armp" Armistead Bolling, being about 19 years of age each, decided to remain on their farms. They were young bachelors together, and had many hardships such as trying to keep house, but had many good times also. Cousin Alex married Josie McFarland and they had six children. Mr. Armp [Bolling] married Fannie Green, and they had four children. Written and submitted by Doris S. Bolling." Note: The accuracy of the above information has not been verified. Charles Bolling of Van Buren, AR, descendant of Samuel Bolling, Jr. and Elizabeth Townsend, was the first tested of this Group 7 (William of Orange Co., VA) family in the Bolling DNA project. He died in 2008, advised by Doris Oakes 11 Jul 2008. Possible burial place of Samuel Bolling, Jr. and wife: See page for Nancy Caroline Bolling Hopkins, their daughter, who is buried on land that appears to be an Indian Mound and is known as the Farrar cemetery, property of George Young Farrar who married a daughter of John Bolling and Ursula Bell, Nancy Bolling. Melba Dingler suggested that Samuel Bolling, Jr. may have bought this land from the family of George Young Farrar who died in 1838.
