July 28, 2002 Several days ago I called the Leo Bollin family who run a dairy farm on the original homestead land of Gotlieb Bollin in Hancock County, Nauvoo. They have lived on the farm since 1944.
When I spoke to Clara Miles Bollin, she was very cordial and agreed to correspond with me as she did in the past with Julie Bahr-Kostelac. I sent to Clara Bollin the history I have of the Nansel-Bollin line including the U.S. Census information researched by Sharon and the sheets Julie sent to you. I told Clara you sent a digital copy of the John Bollin family and home and asked if she had any pictures she would share to send to Roger. Clara Bollin had copied in pen,information from the Nauvoo historical society. She does not have a typewriter nor computer. I also asked if she had any old "stories" about the Bollins.
I believe at least 1 of the Bollin men went to Missouri, perhaps when my great grandparents left IL. for MO.
Roger is working on the pictures for the C.D. I don't hear from him often these days. His commute to work and his work are tiring for him. The heat drains energy from us all. We here in northern VA. have had a few fair rainstorms. Still, we are in a water conservation phase.
Goodnight, Billye Stevens
