Iam looking to learn some trace of William J. Boulton (later Bolton)who's father was supposedly a landlord in Lincolnshire, England. William told that he was born on Picadilly Street, Londson, in 1795, and that when quite young he was pressed aboard a Man-O-War to be a sailor, and was sith the ship for four years before escaping to Canada, then making his way to the United States.

I am also interested in Nancy Kelley. William hired out to a farmer named Barney Kelley at Palmyra, New York, and later married his daughter, the same Nancy Kelley.

They later moved to Michigan, ending up in Ionia County, Michgan.

Children included Mary, Nelso, Wallace, Chzrlotte, George, Nancy (my great-grandmother), and Lucious.
