a. Note:   nia and Georgia" [includes records on the Wisdom family] in <i>Magazine of Virginia Genealogy</i>, Vol. 48, No. 2, pages 151-168, published 2010, by Joyce Perkerson Poole, providing record proof that Lucy and Frances Wisdom were her daughters and proving her children by John Bolling, Sr. Mrs. Anna Berry contributed her knowledge of her grandfather's siblings and their spouses who settled in Oglethorpe Co., GA to <i>A History of Oglethorpe County, Georgia</i>, compiled by Mrs. Florrie Carter Smith in 1970. Mrs. Anna Berry was Mary Anna Bolling who married Charles W. Berry. Anna was the granddaughter of Thornberry Bolling, son of John Bolling and Ursula Bell. Although she had not been told the names of her great-grandparents, she recalled having heard that they came from Pittsylvania Co., VA or Orange Co., VA. Her information on her grandfather Thornberry Bowling came from his family Bible, which had come into her possession upon the death of her father, Thornberry Jackson Bolling, son of Thornberry Bolling. This is an abridged version of her statement about the brothers and sisters of her grandfather, Thornberry Bolling. "The name has been spelling Bolling, Bolin, Bouldin, etc. The correct spelling of that name is Bolling. "The Bowlings came either from Orange or Pittsylvania County, Virginia, but the year is not exactly known. "I. Thornberry Bowling married Lucy Ann Rainey, and lived several years in Virginia after their marriage, before coming to Oglethorpe County, GA., where he died about 1828 or 1830.[Actually, he died 8 May 1837, Anna said below. They married in Oglethorpe Co., GA in 1798.] He left a son three years old, Capt. Thornberry J. Bowling. Thornberry Bowling, born June 8, 1777, died May 8, 1837, married Lucy Rainey first, who was born Feb. 12, 1779 and died April 23, 1825. First wife of Thornberry Bowling died and he married again, this time to Mary Ann Wright on June 19, 1828. She was born May 6, 1793 and died Nov. 27, 1881. II. Milly Bowling, born in Virginia, married John Harris of Virginia, she being his second wife. Some say she was a widow when she married Harris. He died in Oglethorpe County in 1821. III. Elizabeth Bowling, married Rev. Miller Bledsoe, a Baptist minister. (1761-1841). He was born at Fredericksburg, Virginia. They had two daughters, Jean and Eunice (There may have been more.).... IV. William Bowling - record not known. V. Susannah Bowling, wife of Thomas Brittain ....This data was furnished by Mrs. Anna Berry." Early histories of John Bolling give him the title "Doctor," (<i>Fifty Families, A History</i> by Nancy Chambers Underwood, page 479, among them). This may be true, but I have found no authentic record which would confirm or negate this as his profession. John Bolling and his wife Ursula Bell died intestate in Georgia, and there was no administration on either estate in the court records of Oglethorpe or Clarke County, Georgia. The personal property tax records of Orange County, Virginia, identify four of the sons of John Bolling and Ursula Bell. Taxable age for white males in Virginia (even ones listed with their father) was 21 between 1782 and 1793. (William Waller Hening, <i>The Statutes at Large, being a Collection of all the Laws of Virginia, from the First Session of the Legislature, in the year 1619, </i>Vol. X (1822; reprint, Charlotteville, VA: University Press of VA, 1969), 504 (November 1781). Samuel Shepherd: <i>The Statutes at Large of Virginia from October Session 1792 to December Session 1806 Inclusive in Three Volumes Being a Continuation of Hening, </i>Vol. 1 (1835); reprint, New York: AMS Press, Inc. 1970), 184.] The 1783 and 1784 lists show John [Sr.] with William and John, Jr., who were probably born about 1762 and are probably twins. The 1785 tax list shows John Bowling [Sr.], William Bowling, Jona[than] Bowling, Sam'l Bowling. We can estimate from this that Samuel Bolling was born about 1764; Jonathan Bolling should have been born by 1764, according to this tax list, but his family record shows a birth date of 22 May 1767. The son Thornberry and daughters of John Bolling and Ursula Bell Bolling were listed (as shown above) by Thornberry's granddaughter, Mary Anna Bolling Berry (Mrs. Charles), and published by Florrie Carter Smith in <i>The History of Oglethorpe Co., Georgia</i>, (Lexington, GA 1970) pages 50-51. Anna was daughter of Thornberry Jackson Bolling and Elizabeth Smith, who were married in 1860. Anna married Charles Berry in 1895. A family Bible record, probably belonging to Thornberry Bolling, was recopied into another Bible with a publication date of 1872. Anna and George Berry's son George Berry, gave this re-copied Bible record to his cousin, Mrs. Charles Foppert who deposited it, with her letters about the Bolling family, to the Pennsylvania Historical Society in Philadelphia. It was discovered there by Mrs. Janice Friel, a Bell descendant of Chadd's Ford, PA, in 2005, and copies sent to Joyce Poole in Evans, GA. It is apparent that this was a re-copy, as all of the handwriting into events of 1905 is the same.

(sent by Sue senter 3/1/99. We learned that is that the youngest child was always included in these “longest-liver leases”, as it was thought that he would be the "longest liver" and the lease would then extend for a greater length of time. This indicates that Samuel was born a few years before the Aug 1749 date, perhaps ca 1744.) [George Taylor of Orange-VA b 1710 had niece Elizabeth Taylor who m Thomas Bell of Orange-VA.

D., at VA Archives) William Boling 1 tithe 1 black, John Boling (Jr.) 1 tithe and Thornberry Bolling 1 tithe are the only Bollings taxed. John and Ursula moved to Oglethorpe County, GA. after January 4, 1794. In the migration, they were probably joined in Orange Co. by the Oakes & Bledsoes and Bells. We have evidence that the wagon train moving to Georgia could have stopped in Henry Co., VA (where John's brother Samuel had lived during the Revolutionary War) and was joined by families who included George Brittain, Sr. and his children and members of the Thomas Edwards family. George Brittain and Henry Bolling appear in Wilkes and Oglethorpe Co. tax lists in the 1790's. The wagon train was probably travelling on a road that went through North Carolina to Greenville and Laurens Co., SC, where they would have no doubt stayed awhile with Samuel and Abigail Bolling, and were joined by George Young and George Young Farrar (formerly residents of Orange Co., VA) on the migration to Georgia. The Brewers could have joined the wagon train in NC. John Bolling [Sr.] is in the 1800 Oglethorpe Co., GA census, but Ursula is not, indicating she died before 1800. John registered for the 1805 Lottery in GA as a single man, which also indicates that Ursula had died before that. John, Sr., did not draw any land. He was taxed in Big Creek, Oglethorpe County, GA to 1807, then in Clarke Co., GA 1808-1810. Thomas Brittain (who married Susannah Bolling in 1797) paid tax for him in 1807, 1808, and 1809. John paid tax for himself in 1810, then John was paid from Thomas Brittain's estate dated Dec. 31, 1811. The executors of Thomas Brittain's estate paid John Bolling, Sr. for some kind of service he had provided to the estate or that the estate was indebted to him for something. He was not a legatee in Thomas Brittain's will, so he would not be paid as an heir.
