Hi-my ancestor was Reuben Bolles who m 1829 in Warren co KY to Susan Lowery, by
1856 they were in Laclede co MO-went briefly to Illinois.
A Pleasant Bowles signed their marriage bond.
Reuben and Pleasant Bowles both said on census records they were born in VA
Kind of lost track of Pleasant...not sure when he died.
After Susan Lowery Bolles died Reuben married Eliz widow of Stark Rogers...in
Laclede co MO...Reuben died (from memory) 1885...
My problem is that the history of Joseph Bolles of Wells Maine has a Reuben
among his descendants...that Reuben b 1803--about the time my Reuben was born,
this Reuben was born in CT--it is said he married Fanny Baker--and they went to
Anyway--it would be nice if that were true--but I cant see where Pleasant comes
in---and why Reuben said he was born in VA?
It is a puzzle.
