BOLING My gr-grandfather, William Sherman BOLING, is reported to have
RUSSEL been born 30 Oct 1872 in Italy, Ellis Co., TX to Julia Ann SEWARD
SEWARD BOLING. Julia's line is fairly well documented, but of the father
nothing is known except his last name and that he must have died
or absconded sometime between early 1872 and March or 1877 when
Julia married a Soloman RUSSEL, in Ellis or Johnson or McClennan
County. Julia was born and raised in Sullivan Co., MO. Interest-
ingly, William Sherman married the youngest daughter of Julia's
brother, so there was a long term connection. Julia's mother,
Rebecca SEWARD, may have died in Johnson Co. 28 Aug 1897. If any--
one can shed light on any of these people, I will be grateful.
