1. JOHN2 WOOD (WILLIAM1) was born 1732 in Goochland(later Albemarle) Co., Va., and died Abt. 1792 in Of Albemarle. He married ELEANOR ISRAEL Bef. 1760 in Albemarle Co., Va., daughter of SOLOMON ISRAEL and MARY JOHNSTON. She was born 06/08/1734 in Hempstead, Long Island, New York, and died 1814 in Albemarle Co., Va.

Notes for JOHN WOOD: According to Edgar Woods' _History of Albemarle County in Virginia_, "William Wood first appears, who about 1760 bought land from John Leake and others on the head waters of Mechum's. He seems to have had five sons, John, William, Isaac, Abner and Jesse."

Notes for SUSANAH "SUSAN" WOOD:
I found the 1810 census for Elizabethtown, Hardin County, KY. It is listed as Jon (then it has a circle with two dots or dashes under them, could it be the abrreviation for Jonathon?) Bolin. All the info fits with the family. It has the following:
2 free white males under 10 (probably George
Washington and James Madison if born 1810 not 1811)
1 free white male 10 thru 15 (probably William Wood)
1 free white male 16 thru 25 (probably John)
1 free white male 26 thru 44 (probably Jonathon himself)
1 free white female under 10 (probably Polly M)
1 free white female 10 thru 15 (probably Elizabeth)
1 free white female 16 thru 25 (probably either Rhoda or Peggy, more than likely Rhoda since she is the one we defintely know of)
1 free white female 26 thru 44 (probably Susannah herself)

According to the 1820 census of Munfordville, Hart County, Kentucky:
Susan Bowling had the following in her household:
2 free white males of ten and under sixteen (probably was James Madison and George Washington)
1 free white male of sixteen and under twenty six including heads of families (probably was William Wood)
1 free white female of ten and under sixteen (probably was Polly M but this would be a close one on age for her)
1 free white female forty five and upwards including heads of families (probably was Susannah herself)
6 number of persons engaged in agriculture
2 male slaved under fourteen
1 male slave of fourteen and under twenty-six
3 female slaves under fourteen
2 female slaves of fourteen and under twenty-six
1 female slave of forty-five and upwards
14 all other persons except Indians not taxed

1830 CENSUS RECORD FOR HART COUNTY, KENTUCKY According to the 1830 census for Hart County, Kentucky: Susannah Bowling was listed as having two females in her house. One was between age 20 and 30 (probably Polly M.) and the other one was between age 60 and 70, I presume this was Susannah who would have been about 64.

Interestingly enough on the same census listed right above Susannah Bowling is Jacob Bumgardner. Jacob Bumgardner's information is as follows:
one male between 5 and 10
one male between 10 and 15
one male between 20 and 30
one male between 40 and 50
two females under five
one female between 5 and 10
one female between 15 and 20
one female between 20 and 30

Right below Jacob Bumgardner on the census is Susannah Bowling.

Right below Susannah Bowling is George W. Bowling. George W. Bowling's information is as follows: one male under 5 which would have been John W. Bowling since he was born in 1830
one male between 20 and 30 which would be George W. himself
one female between 15 and 20 would have been Ann Eliza Floyd, George's wife.

Listed below James Bowling is John Bell.

Listed earlier on the same census page was Christian Bumgardner. Christian's info is as follows:
2 males under 5
one male between 5 and 10
one male between 10 and 15
one male between 20 and 30
one male between 40 and 50
one female between 5 and 10
2 females between 15 and 20
one female between 20 and 30
one female between 40 and 50

1840 CENSUS FOR HART COUNTY KY According to the 1840 census for Hart County, Susan Bowling was between age 70 and 80. This is Jonathon's widow.

Also listed on this census in the census order was:
W.B. Bowling
J.E. Pierce
G.W. Bowling
Susan Bowling
J.W. Bowling

Please note these 4 Bowling (with this spelling) households are the only ones listed for Hart County on the 1840 census.

According to the 1840 Census for Hart Co, KY, G.W. Bowling had
2 males under 10 (John W. and James M),
1 male 30 to 40 (George Washington Bowling himself),
3 females under 5 (Susuan, Elizabeth, and Mary),
1 female 5 to 10 (Martha W.), and
1 female 30 to 40 (probably Ann Eliza Floyd, George's wife) living in his household.

According to the 1840 census for Hart Co, KY:
J.W. Bowling had
one male under 5,
2 males between 5 and 10,
one male between 30 and 40
one female between 5 and 10
one female between 20 and 30

(This is just something to consider! In comparing these numbers to James M. Bowling and Elizabeth Bowling, all the numbers match up except one of the boys between 5 and 10 which could be Waddle or another son we don't know about.

According to the 1840 census for Hart Co, KY: J.W.(possibly should have been J.M. instead of W) Bowling had
one male under 5 (Probably George Washington do not confuse with older George Washington, son of Jonathon)

2 males between 5 and 10 (probably James Henry and not sure of the other one. I have they had a son named Waddle but thought he was born in 1838)
one male between 30 and 40 (James himself)
one female between 5 and 10 (Probably Martha E)
one female between 20 and 30 (Probably Elizabeth)

One reason for this line of thought was because we know James Henry and George Washington (sons of James Madison Bowling and Elizabeth Bumgarnder) were born in Hart County in 1833 and 1837. We also know that John Lewis was born in Hart County in 1840 as well as all the other kids that came after him. We have James and Elizabeth on the Hart Co census records for 1850 and later.

According to the 1840 census for Hart County, KY: W.B. Bowling had the following people in his household.
2 males under 5
2 males between 5 and 10
1 male between 20 and 30
1 male between 40 and 50
1 female between 5 and 10
3 females between 10 and 15
1 female between 30 and 40

PLEASE REMEMBER THESE ARE THE ONLY 4 BOWLINGS SPELLED THIS WAY IN HART COUNTY in 1840. No listings for Bolling, Boling, Bolin, Bolen, Bolan, Bowlen were found on the 1840 census for Hart County.

Joy McCook

This accounts for all of the family and matches more of what we thought since we had George Washington being born in Hardin County. I think the KY Kinfolks made a mistake listing them as settling in Barren County. I haven't seen any records yet other than that article of them in Barrin Co.


Notes for JONATHAN BOLLING, BOWLING:
frenda@erols.com
I have something in Todd Bolen's book that might put you on a different, but maybe more productive track. On p. 44 of his 1996 Family Groups update, Todd lists a Betsey Bolling/Bowling, born after 1792, who in 1813 married a John Richardson. Betsey's mom is listed as Susanah "Susan" Wood (b. 1766), but her father is given as Jonathan (not William), b. 1767. Going back to Todd's first volume (p. 147) we find (according to various sources) that Jonathan Bolling/Bowling was born in Virginia and seems to have lived there until 1804 or so and then moved to Kentucky. Jonathan and Susan were married around 1790. All of this seems to fit with your Elizabeth marrying John Richardson in time to have Sarah in 1815. I hope it turns out that by substituting Jonathan for William you're able to put more of the pieces into the right places.

17 Nov 1790. Albemarle-VA. Jonathan Bowling m Susannah Wood. (son of John Bolling and Ursula Bell Wisdom, dau of Roger Bell, all of Orange-VA, per DAR National No. 543628. The paper was approved in 1968, and the documentation is ambiguous. The best proof is that Jonathan is a minor in the household of John Bowling in the personal property tax list of 1784 and 1785. One piece of evidence given on the DAR paper was Orange Co. VA Families by W. A. Brockman, which may have some additional proof of Jonathan's parentage. D-5 has some deeds for Jonathan Bolling/Bowling in Albemarle and Amherst-VA. John Bolling and Wood families taxed 1785 Albemarle-VA; but in the tax record examined on microfilm by Yvonne Porter (also Glen Garrison) for 1785, Jonathan was listed in John Bolling's Orange-VA house.

Wit: Thomas Bell, John Wright, Jr., John Morton, Henry Tandy, John Smith. Proved 22 Apr 1794. (transmittal by Alice Broaddus, in letter file 7/93)

27 Mar 1792. Orange-VA Minute Book 3, p116. At a court held 27 March 1792, John Bolling made it appear to the Court that he is heir-at-law to William Bolling, his brother, who enlisted as soldier in the 2nd VA Regt. in the month of February 7, 1777, in the company commanded by Capt. Dudley, and that William Bolling died in the month of July or August 1778 while in the service, which was proved by Peachy Bledsoe, who was a Sgt. in said Regiment. Ordered to be certified. [Peachy Bledsoe was brother to Miller Bledsoe; I believe their father was Moses Bledsoe who married a 1st Miss Peachy, dau of Col. Wm. Peachy and m2) Mary Miller d/o Col. William Miller.]

Mar 1796. Albemarle-VA Deed Bk 12, p65-66 & p.127-128. Jonathan Bol(ens/??) witnessed two deeds, one for George Berry and wife Sally of Albemarle-VA selling to John Field & one for Isaac Oaks & wife Lucy selling to George Berry. The land was on waters of Mechum's R. (Pounding Branch), near Samuel Wood, deceased; and Jesse Wood, Senr. was a witness to one of them. (Delores Rutherford correspondence in Berry files July, 1991) [This must be Jonathan Bolling son of John of Orange-VA, who in 1791 in Albemarle Co. married Susannah Wood. The Berry family and Isaac Oaks are from Orange-VA.]


History of Albemarle County in Virginia
By Rev. Edgar Woods
Emigrants from Albemarle to Other States Kentucky BOLLING, Jonathan and Susan (WOOD), Barren Co. This was found on Ancestry.com under the section for Albemarle, Virginia Record of Families, 1744-1890

From Joyce Poole: Jonathan was born in Orange Co., VA, in 1767, but his parents John and Ursula didn't move to GA until about 1794 when they sold the land in Orange Co. Jonathan must have heard about good prospects or already knew about Susannah Wood in Albemarle, because he left Orange Co. for Albemarle before his parents moved to GA.

Could Sarah Elizabeth BOWLING be the wife of James H.?

I think this is James Henry Bowling (son of James
Madison Bowling and Elizabeth Bumgardner)

Sarah Elizabeth Bowling
born Apr 30, 1846
died Mar 11, 1918
I think this is the daugher of James Madison Bowling

correct the year of death. I had 1911.

No. They are brothers and sisters according to my records--Joy McCook---Joymccoook@yahoo.com

ALMOST A CENTURY
William Porter, Probably the Oldest citizen of the County, Peacefully Passes Away.

When a man as old in years, as ripe in experience and as rich in faith as was Mr. Porter is taken from us, we feel that the fact is deserving of more than passing newspaper notice, hence present below a few of the principal events in the life of this venerable citizen.

William Porter was born at Crab Orchard, Ky., May 2 1809, and was married to Sarah Ann Richardson in Hart Co. Ky, Feb. 23 1833. He died at the home of his son in Silex, Mo., Feb. 23, 1905, aged 95 years, 9 months and 21 days.

He was confined to his bed only about one week being able to wait upon himself up to that time, even making his own stove fires into January last.

No disease was upon him-just a giving way-a wearing out of the whole human system: no pain attended his going. He slept from life to death, from mortality to immortality.

His remains were laid away in the New Liberty cemetery beside his beloved wife, who died July 1, 1897. They spent sixty-four years of married life together and he died on the anniversary of his wedding day.

Funeral services were conducted at Liberty church by Rev. J.M. Hughes, of the M.E. church, South, after which his body was tenderly laid away.

He was of English and French descent, his mother being French. His grandfather came from England and settled in Fauquier co. Va., at an early day, and his sons removed to Kentucky in the early settling of that country. There the subject of this sketch was born, grew into manhood, married and lived until he was 56 years old or until 1865. In October of that year he moved to Lincoln Co. Mo. with all of his family except one son and there he lived his days and was "gathered to his fathers."

His grandfather had been in Virginia long enough that he had three sons at Yorktown when Cornwallis surrendered. His father was born in 1778 and died in 1841, moved to Kentucky in 1808 and settled in Lincoln Co. Ky. He was often heard to say that deer were plentiful when he was a young man.

He was the father of eleven children, nine sons and two daughters. Two of these children died in their childhood and the blue grass sod of Kentucky covers the little mounds where they were laid away. His oldest son Elias never moved to Missouri, but remained in Russelville, Ky., though he died in Lincoln co. Mo. while visiting his parents here, on 20 Oct. 1872. His youngest daughter, Sallie Porter reeds, wife of H.F. Reeds, recently of Troy, Mo. died November 25, 1875 in Lincoln co. Mo.

His children that survive him are Norman Porter, of Silex; Henry and W.J. Porter of Corso; Mrs. I.J. Ingram of Ashley; C.E. Porter, of Bowling Green; L. B. Porter, of Silex and John Porter, of Boulder, Col. He had twenty one grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.

He learned the blacksmith trade when a young man and followed that business until about 1858, when a protracted spell of fever left him unable to work longer. Since that time he has been relieved from the cares of an active business life, and his passing years were spent at his ease and in peace with the world.

During the Civil War he was on the side of the Union because he thought it the side of right. he was not a soldier, being unable for duty. He was a republican in politics and a close reader, up to four months ago, of the papers, keeping in touch with all the doings of foreign countries as well as our own.

Mr. Porter was a constant reader and there were few better historians, ancient and modern: he was a well posted Bible student and had in his mind a vivid political history of the world and especially of his own country-85 years of it by personal experience.

He united with the Christian church when a young man, in the days of Alexander Campbell, whom he had heard preach on more than one occasion and remained strong in the faith to the end. He was an active church man throughout his active life: an elder for years, a leader of song service, was fond of reading the Scriptures and the Book of Job, particularly. Only a few days before he died he talked to the writer on the great question that Job asked, :If a man die, shall he live again.

On the evening of the day before he died he said to his two sons who were by his side, "I am not going to die tonight," and the next morning told them "I will not live through the day," and he died at 1:30 p.m.

Notes for WILLIAM WOOD BOWLING, DR.:
Kentucky: A History of the State, Battle, Perrin, & Kniffin, 3rd ed.,1885, Hart County.

DR. WILLIAM WOOD BOWLING is a practicing physician residing in Hart County, Ky., where he was born November 1, 1837. His father, William Wood Bowling, was born in Albemarle County, Va., February 19, 1799; marrried, in 1820, Miss Martha Coombs, and became the father of three sons and five daughters: Samuel B. (deceased), Richard W., William W., Pamelia (Alderson), Eliza Lester, Susan Wood, Elvira (Adair) and Mary S. (Gaddie). Martha (Coombs) Bowling was born February 8, 1804, and is yet living; her parents, Aden and Pamelia (Williams) Coombs, were natives of Virginia, and later residents of Hardin, now Hart County. William Wood Bowling was a farmer, and died June 22, 1863; his parents, Jonathan and Susan Wood Bowling, were of English extraction, and natives of Albemarle County, Va. The former was born May 22, 1767, and the latter November 10, 1877. They were married in Albemarle County, Va., moved to Kentucky as early as 1804, and located in Hardin County (now Hart). William W. Bowling received a fair common school education while residing at home. In 1859 he entered the Columbia College, in Adair County; he continued in school until the beginning of the civil war, when he entered the army, and for two years served under Gen. S. B. Buckner, and afterward under Gen. John A. Morgan. He was captured with others of Morgan's command on their raid into Ohio. He was held a prisoner of war until the fall of the Confederacy, when he returned home. He taught school and read medicine, and, in 1868, entered the medical department of the University of Louisville, from which he graduated in 1871. He also attended, in 1885, the New York Polyclinic School of Practical Medicine and Surgery. His marriage with Miss M. Ermine Doran was celebrated December 22, 1868; they are the parents of four sons: William David, born May 25, 1870; Richard Lee, June 23, 1873; Curtis Wood, April 1, 1875, and Larry Burk, April 5, 1877. Mrs. Bowling was born November 2, 1849. Her parents, David and Letitia (Handley) Doran, were residents of Hart County. The former was of Irish parentage and a native of Grayson County; the latter was of English descent and a native of Marion County. The Doctor and his wife are members of the Presbyterian Church. He is a Royal Arch Mason in Gilead Chapter, No. 87, also a member of the society of K. of H. His farm of 193 acres lies on the waters of Green river and is well improved. The Doctor divides his time between the practice of his profession and superintending his farming interests. Bowling Coombs Alderson Adair Gaddie Williams Buckner Morgan Doran Handley

Bowling, of Hart County, was born in 1810, and in 1831 married Elizabeth Baumgartner; to them were born nine children, six living: James, Martha (Graham), George, John, Thomas and Gaines.

Bowling was a farmer and stock raiser; he served in the war of 1861 as a member of Company E, Third Battery Kentucky Artillery, and died in Louisville, in 1863, soon after his enlistment. He was a son of Edward Bowling, one of the pioneers of Kentucky. John L. Bowling resided on his father's farm until his marriage. His early school training was limited by the circumstance of his time being fully taken up with farming and caring for stock; later in life, however, he has been a great reader, and his mind is stored with a fund of knowledge theoretical as well as practical. His farm of 122 acres is in good condition, very productive and well improved with dwelling, barns and orchard. He was married on the 4th of March, 1868, to Miss Ann M. Goodman. Six children have been born to them; Maud, Millicent, Celia, Aylett, Wyley and Elizabeth. Mr. Bowling purchased his first tract of land in 1859, and since that time has given all his attention to agriculture and stock raising, with the exception of three years spent in Government service. He was a member of Commpany D, Second Kentucky Cavalry, in which command he served from October 9, 1861, to November 18, 1865, and was in every battle and skirmish in which his company was engaged, except that of Resaca, Ga. Politically Mr. Bowling is a Democrat; he is also a member of Munfordville Lodge of the I. O. O. F.

Dear Charlene,

Sorry to be so long in replying to your message on the Slaughter page of GenForum. My grandfather, Walter Wiatt was very close to his uncle Ab Slaughter. He spent a year living in his house in Green Bay and going along on visits to patients with Dr. Ab. In his autobiography, Walter wrote that he went to Green Bay in Sept. 1890 at the age of 14. "On Saturdays, I often went with Uncle Ab to the hospital to watch Dr. Minehan, a surgeon, operate. Uncle Ab usually served as his anesthetist. One time while Dr. Minehan was operating on a patient's neck, the assisting nurse fainted. As the operation had reached a critical stage and there was no time to get another nurse, I was pressed into service and did the sponging of blood so the procedure could continue. It was a great event in my life, especially as I was then planning to later study medicine."

Later he wrote about attending Uncle Ab's funeral saying it was a sad time for us. When he had stayed with Ab, Dr. Slaughter had owned a fine two-story house. "This he later lost, having mortgaged it to get some money to buy oil stock which turned out to be a swindle. It broke his spirit, for he lost everything he had and was still in debt when he died."

Thought this might interest you. Anything you have to share on early Wiatts or Wyatts in VA would be great!

Sincerely,
Phil Chartrand--Chartran62@aol.com
