Re: Newton Luther Bolen of Va
Bill, thanks for your quick response.I have none of these names in my Hopewell database so I am finding this set of data fascinating.I only recently discovered Sallie Hopewell through some papers in the LVA from Mrs. Nathan Allnutt.
Fielden Bolen was an administrator of the estate of Joseph Hopewell, my 4th great grandfather.The papers also mention Fielden's son, James Edwin Bolen marrying Sallie Hopewell.I am assuming that there is probably a relationship between Sallie Hopewell and Joseph Hopewell, but I am not sure.
Joseph did have a son named John, but he did not have any children named Elizabeth and I have his offspring well documented.You didn't mention if you had Sallie's birthdate, but based on the age of her brother, she might be young enough to be the great granddaughter of Joseph (1741-1830).I do not have all of his direct children mapped out completely.
If you run across any other Hopewell data, I would be very happy to see it.Did you have any other dates for James and Sallie?Birth, death, or marriage?I assume you have their children as well?
I can give you considerable information on the Hopewell line back if I can establish the exact connection between Joseph and Sallie.
Thanks again.... Mike
