The family story is he was born in Hines, AL on 15 Sep 1881. His father died, mother remarried (Surname NAIL) and he moved to Texas @ 16 (1897).
He settled in Sulphur Springs, Hopkins Co, TX. Married Hattie Emily Brock there.(She was supposedly born in Brinkley, AR, on 10 Oct 1882) Don't know anything about his parents, other than mother remarried. I had a volunteer lookup marriages in Lauderdale County and they couldn't find any Bolins.
