Back before the internet, Ancestry.com or any online genealogical help, Todd Bolen was a avid researcher looking for his Bolen ancestors. He used the tools available then of which corresponding with others via mail was a primary source. He began to collect a lot of information on various Bolling lines (all spellings) from many different researchers (sources).
The Bolling, Bowling Bolen Family in America before 1800 was first compiled by Todd Bolen and Lois Bolen Strange in 1987 and updated in 1997. Since it is now out of publication and only available in libraries, Todd has graciously allowed us to share some of the contents below. All Bolling researchers are indebted to him for this generous gift.
