Please help with this dead end. I have spent years searching the Sullivan line only to find out that my father was actually of the Bolen line. (I uncovered a family secret). Thus my research has started over searching the Bolen line. I haven't been able to locate William Bolen in the 1830, 40, 50 census. The same is true for his wife. There 1st born occurred in either 1849 or 1851 depending on which census you view. I suspect the 1851 is accurate. I have located this family in the 1860 Mason county KY census. They had children born in Mason beginning in 1851. They are listed in the 1870 census in White county Illinois. So for a decade or so they lived in Mason Ky. I can't locate any records for them other than the 1860 census. Would like to locate birth records for the children, Martha Jane b.1851, William Henry b.1851, Anna Bell b.1856, Robert Wilburn b.1858, Amanda b.1862, David b.1865 Illinois Melissa b.1869 Illinois
The parents names of William Bolen born 1828 (father of above children) are needed as well. He was born in Ohio and his parents in Virgina. The parents names of Nancy Jane Hudson born 1831 (mother of above children and wife of William) are needed as well. She and her parents were born in New York.
The family is located in the 1860,70,80 census'
I can't locate any birth records or death records for any of the parents or children.
