The Bolding Family of North Iowa Updated October 3, 2001
About Our Family Research
Looking for all information on my family. The info I remember from my father's side is that my grandfather, Clarence Bolding, had a farm in Manly IA. He had four sons, my father, Howard was the oldest, then Stanley, Verlyn and Francis LeRoy. Grandpa passed away from colon cancer somewhere around 1941. My grandfather was married to Henrietta Nelson. She passed away in late 1970's if my memory is correct. I know we have family in South Dakota as we went to see my dad's Uncle somewhere around Sioux Falls in the early 70's. We also have family in Oshen Ia (check spelling on city). My father Howard and my uncle Verlyn are gone now and are buried in our family section in Mason City but Uncle Stan lives in Georgia and Uncle LeRoy lives in the North Iowa area.
Clarence's grandkids are all over the U.S. Uncle Stan has two sons in Georgia and daughter ( in the D.C. area last I heard ). Uncle Verlyn has three boys. One in the N Iowa area, one in Oklahoma and one who is a decorated combat fighter chopper pilot in the U.S. Army. Uncle LeRoy has two daughters who live in the N. Iowa area. As for my family, my three sisters are in Iowa. My oldest sister is buried in Cedar Rapids, Ia. She died of SDS in 1959. My other two live in N. Iowa. I reside in the Dallas TX area and this is why some of my dates may be off alittle bit as I am not around family on a regular basis to discuss.
