Henrich Bollinger had 2 grandsons named Solomon, and one great grandson. John (Johannes) Bollinger's son Solomon was my 4x great grandfather. He was b. 1790 in Lincoln N.C. He married Barbary Hobbs btwn 1811-1820. They had 4 children that we know of, a son Solomon Jr. b. 1829 MO.,and 3 daughters. One daughter, Delilah, was my 3x great grandmother. We know nothing about the other 2 girls.
The other Solomon Bollinger was 1st cousin to my Solomon and was b. 1789 in N.C. According to "The Bolllinger Connection" this Solomon never married. I think he was the son of Daniel or David.
My 4x g-gf died btwn 1840-41 and after his death, his family first went to Greene Co.AR, where Delilah married Ezra Helfer. Then by 1850 the 2 families are in Christian Twp, Independence Co. AR. Barbary is shown as 60 and living with her is Solomon Jr. and a 12 year old boy named Henry Hobbs. A few doors down is Ezra and Delia (Delilah) Helfer (Helfon). Solomon Jr. married Prudence Moss, sister to my 3x great aunt, Mary Polly Moss Leonard. He died as a Union soldier in the Civil War. We think Barbary died betwn 1850-1860 AR. Ezra Helfer died in 1853 in Jackson AR. and by 1850 Delilah is living in Grayson Co. TX with her 2 orphaned grandaughters, Mary Ellen Leonard (my G-GM) and her sister, Sarah Issabella Leonard.
We are searching for any information about Delilah's sisters. It is possible one married a Redden, but this has not been proven. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Hope this answers some of your questions.
