Hi - you are not going to get many responses in the Bolling forum, mainly because this question comes up a lot - I asked it myself 4 months ago - there isn't a conclusive answer. The Elams have Robert Elam married Elizabeth Bolling/Boling, but she isn't mentioned in the official family history of the Bollings which is really well documented because of the connection to Pocahantas.
Most Elams have Elizabeth Bolling as Col Robert Bollings daughter. Most Bollings have Ann(elizabeth)1690 married to Robert Wynne - no Elams.
I have been told that Elizabeth was not a Bolling but a Branch - I've checked that out and she had 4 husbands - no Elams. I have also been told that Elizabeth is the daughter of Maj Robert Bolling. Col Robert Bolling had brothers, his father had brothers - I haven't found any information on other Bolling lines. However the most likely senerio is that Elizabeth Bolling was a niece of Col Robert Bolling.
Robert's son John also had a daughter Elizabeth 1709 who married a William Gay. I hope this helps. P
