Re: Benjamin 1734-1832 and Jeremiah Bolling
Page 33 of the sources listed by Todd Bolen and Lois (Bolen) Stange in THE BOLLING, BOWLING, BOLEN FAMILY IN AMERICA BEFORE 1800 attributes the quotation you cited to a "Transcription from the Polly Back Bible."The informant (Source #1206) said that he/she "received a copy from Source #249 who received a copy from Source #405."The transcription, according to source #1206, "Includes a part written by Jerriamah [as spelled] Bolling, Sr. (Fh325) written August 26, 1853."
I know nothing about the "Polly Back Bible," but it seems (according to the source data in the Bolen-Stange book) that this is the document that may answer the question you've raised.Perhaps one of the three informants cited by Bolen-Stange could shed some light on the authenticity of the statement attributed to Jeremiah Bolling.
