U.S. States: Missouri: Bollinger County
Hello - I am also descendant of Philip & Charity (Whitener) Bollinger through their son: Amos BOLLINGER, b. bet. 1813-1816 MO.
Amos BOLLINGER is recorded as an early settler of Ripley Co. MO (as early as 1830) and is listed on 1840 Census. He is then found on 1850 - 1860 Census for Randolph Co. AR. According to the "History of Randolph Co.", Mr. Bollinger was operating the "Bollinger Mill", later known as "Brockett Mill" and was taken prisoner the last year of the Civil War. I have been unable to trace him afterward.
Amos BOLLINGER was married twice (that I am aware) - (1) Elizabeth ?? in c1840 MO, (2) Amelia Fluegge ("FLIGA") Mar 1852 AR. He has children by both (willing to share desc. chart if interested). My grt-grt grandfather, Willoughby "Capt Wibb" Conner (son of John B. & Jane H. (Robinson) Conner of Wayne Co. MO) married Eliza Bollinger (dau. of Amos & Elizabeth Bollinger) m. 1861 Randolph Co. AR.
I am curious as to where these BOLLINGER's were buried. I have not found them in Randolph County, AR. Did your Phillip, Jr. own property in Wayne County, MO and was it flooded to make Wappapello lake? I recall that Phillip, Sr. lived near John B. Conner in Wayne Co. - Otter Creek, but I would have to go back to my notes to verify.
