In Reply to: Bolanders - by Barbara Hill of 219

Hi,My name is Eddie Ross. My wife's name is Jennifer Bolander Ross.
Jenny's father Alfred M. Bolander lives in Wichita Kansas and was from Parsons Kansas originally. He is the son of William Harvey Bolander who is the son of Lurie Bolander of South Mound Kansas.
Lurie was the son of Lord Guildford Bolander. That would mean that Lurie and your grandfather Blanchard brothers.
Lurie had sons named Luke, Fred, Jessie, William Harvey and daughter Murl and another aunt that I can't remember the name of.
My father-in-law remembers Blanchard, who he said was the chief of police in Parsons Kansas back in the 1930's.
He said Lord Guildford had another son named John and possibly Perry. My brother-in-law Jeffrey Bolander lives there in Wichita and can corespond with you if you wish. Jeffrey's e-mail
address is Alfred M. Bolander (my father-in-law) and his twin sister Alfreda Brown are the only living
children of William Harvey Bolander. My wife, Jennifer, and I live in Hawley Texas and we really don't see the family much, however we are
very interested in the Bolander family history. Please write back and let us know what you find out or if you need anything else.

Eddie Ross
