Elijah Bolton was born 12/28/1844, probably in present day Greene Co. AL (then Pickens Co.) and died 12/26/1944 in Pope, Panola Co. MS.Margaret was his first wife; he remarried Emma Dollehite 12/9/1894 in Pope.He and Emma had no children, but their marriage date probably means that Margaret had died by 1894.
Elijah and Margaret had the following children: Harriet A.E. (born about 1868), James Robert (b. 1/21/1869), Josephine R. (born about 1872), John Jackson (b. 9/18/1873), Mary J.
