    Joanne of special interest to you: I also found hand copied copies of letters sent to David Bolch (Bolick) in Des Moines, Iowa. (I may have the originals too) (My grandmother's notes say David lived in Mediapolis, Iowa when the letters were written. David m 1815 Rachael Simon and went to Iowa before 1847. --My grandmother got that information, and more, from a Mr. Heffner of Hickory North Carolina, who was then president of the Catawba Co. Historical Society. He was descended from Elizabeth Bolick b 1785 and Phillip Heffner. Elizabeth dau of Casper Bolick)

    Your Old Sister Sally requests some intelligence about her son Moses Bolch. If he is about there she wants him to write to her immediately and if he should not be there she wants you to give her the best information concerning him that you can.

    Now with painful feelings we must inform you that our old brother Adam Deceased this life some time last fall we expecting you never had heard of it. We have no doubt of meeting him at the great rising day.".....

    Hiram Bolch attended Miller's Lutheran Church near Hickory NC in the early forties. He and his brother Joseph were executors of his father's estate, the will was probated in 1848. He had charge of the Catawba County Home for the aged in 1847/48. He was overseer of the "road from HIckory Tavern to the Bridge Road" in 1861. He served sometime as a confederate guard at the prison at Salisbury, NC. His life moved thru two states, active in many ways, a leader among his neighbors, a good Lutheran- a court record says that he paid a five dollar fine for an affray.

    Hi, Carolyn--

    After an "unbelievable" year I finally finished putting into my database
    the Henry Bolch data you posted to me last December 14th. I do thank you.

    I have had a couple of weeks to myself (physically in our new home) to get
    back into serious research again. You should see my bedroom floor!! Piles
    and Piles of stuff that I've been going through and trying to place in the
    proper files. Yes, I'm of the "old school" -- hard copies of important
    data. In the past 2 years, I been through a computer crash (lost all my
    e-mail data) and then on top of that, my FTM program konked out. Good
    thing I had it backed up--3 sets of floppies.

    Changing the subject, back on 10 Dec 1999 you made a request for data on
    Elizabeth Mauser. Did anyone help you out on that one? I do have quite a
    bit of information on her including siblings and ancestors. Just let me
    know what you need.

    Wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
