Most folks have Family Tree but I have a Family Bush. A bush can limbs that brake off and become Tumble Weeds and move around for years. I am all always researching and up dating. Come back and visit when you can sit a spell

    After a very hectic holiday periday period, I have now found time to look over my e-mail
    correspondence. I noted your message to Hal Bolen of 4 December, in which you mentioned
    that your Mollie Bolling, who married Andrew Baker, was born in 1729 and could not have
    been a daughter of Edward Bolling (1687-1710).

    Our evidence is building up that Edward had a son named Benjamin, born in 1709. Our
    files also show that this Benjamin Bolling had a daughter, Mary, who married Andrew
    Baker in 1753.

    It is significant to note that more and more evidence is coming in to show that Benjamin
    Bolling was the father of the renowned Benjamin Bolling (1734-1832), who would have been
    a brother of Mary Bolling Baker.

    Here, we must try to understand the personalities of the parties involved. Edward
    Bolling (son of the immigrant Robert Bolling and his second wife, Anne Stith), must have
    married the Slaughter girl at a very early age, because he somehow managed to have six
    children before he died at the age of twenty-three. He was also a sea captain, away from
    home a lot. He even died at sea.

    As a direct descendant of the oldest son of this Robert Bolling and Anne Stith, I have
    spent years searching for information about all the children of the couple. There is
    plenty about my ancestor, Robert II, his brothers Stith, Drury, and Thomas. However,
    information about Edward is almost non-existent. Even the first name of Edward's wife is
    unknown. I can only assume that the parents disapproved of Edward's lifestyle, of the
    very early birth of his children (when Edward was apparently in his early teens), and of
    Edward's entire family. That is why, Edward's widow and her children left Virginia when
    Edward died and settled in North Carolina. It was in North Carolina where the Bolling
    and Baker families first grew close together.

    The dates fit if you accept the idea that Polly was the granddaughter of Edward, the
    daughter of Benjamin, Sr., and the sister of the Benjamin who is buried in Flat Gap, VA.

    Needless to say, we have been unable to authenticate everything yet, but the evidence is
    strong, and we are trying to find proof. Since the elder Bollings apparently disapproved
    of Edward and his wife, there will be only the slimmest of authentication if we ever
    find anything at all.

    Colonel Byrd once wrote a letter about "those beautiful young men" when he told a friend
    about the loss of two of his ship captains, one of whom was Edward. We need more,
    however, and we shall continue our search.

    I hope this helps out. Sorry for the delay.

    Bud Bolling.

    Children of Andrew Baker and Mollie Bolling:

    [1} John Renta Baker, B. 28 Jan. 1744 (taken from Cortland Cem.,
    Letters from a direct descendant and from papers of Asberry
    Johnson), MD. Elizabeth Ferrill

    {2} Cuthburt Baker, B. 1746

    [3] Richard Baker, B. 1747/48 MD. A Miss Mullins

    [4] Andrew (Rev. Andy) Baker, B. 1749, MD. Elizabeth Avant

    [5] Morris Baker, B. 1751

    [6] James Baker, B. 1757

    [7] George Baker (Rev. War Vet) B. 1759, MD. Susannah Morris

    [8] Bolling Baker, B. 1763, MD. Patsy Morris (a sister to Susannah)

    If Andrew was born in 1692, then he would have been 52 at the
    Birth of this first child. BUT, if he was born 1722 (according
    To papers of Asberry Johnson) then he would have been only 22
    At birth of John Renta and this seems more plausible. If B. 1692
    Then he would have been 71 at birth of Bolling, BUT if B. 1722,
    He was only 41 and this is more plausible.

    I am beginning to believe that this just might be the case with
    Andrew Baker and Mary Bolling. If the first Andrew was B. In
    1692 and MD a Mollie Bolling, B. 1702 they could have had a son
    Andrew B. 1722 who also MD. A Mary or Mollie Bolling B. 1729.

    And this just may be where we are missing the family link in
    Bakers and Bollings.

    The first Mary Bolling could be the dau. Of Robert Bolling and
    Ann Stith and the second Mary/Mollie Bolling could be the dau.
    Of Edward Bolling and Ms. Slaughter, which could be where all
    The confusion has come in.
    The Edward Bolling, and Slaughter information was put into place
    By the BFA. I would be extremely careful before I used that.
    Remember they have produced nothing to show it to be a fact. I
    Go after original documentation if I can find it. Such as bible
    Records, or tombstone evidence or wills and deeds. I have gone
    Over the wills, deeds and such in that area of VA. While I know
    it's possible to miss something, I have yet to find any evidence
    Of this relationship.

    In fact one gentleman wrote of Edwards death, and his friends
    Death (they died at the same time): "Two handsome young men".
    Todd Bolen gives Edwards date of birth as 1687, and his death
    As 1710. And goes on to say there were six children, but gives
    No names for the children, except for a Benjamin, nor does Todd
    Give us his source for this.
    Page 15, of Todd's Book, the last edition 8/2/96.

    Not bad baby, making for a "Handsome young man", often at sea,
    And dead at the age of 23 with not one, but six children. Did
    Handsome young man refer to his sexual preferences?

    We would have to go back into his time to find out, but some
    Might conclude that. And they may be doing it because more than
    One Blue Bolling writer has said she was a sister to Benjamin
    Bolling. I hope no one is upset with me for saying what I see.

    It's just like the William Bolling/Simms information. The BFA
    Put that out also, and there is not one shred of evidence to
    Support it. Ask Alice in Huston where she got that information.
    I spent some time looking at that data, but data not from Alice
    As she never sent it to me, she just told me of it.
