I know this message was posted a long time ago, but my great great great grandfather was George Robert Bolen. I've just recently started working on my genealogy.
I came across a county history for Licking County, which includes a biographical sketch of George and includes some information about his wife Mary F. Monroe and her family. If you'd like, I can copy those pages and email them to you. If you have any other names that you'd like me to look up I'd be more than happy to. The book is by L H. Everts, "1875 History of Licking County, Ohio: Plus New Indexes." (Knightstown, Ind: Bookmark, 1975.). The library I got it from is non-circulating but you may be able to find it from another library. Also, here is a website about Emerson and his business (http://www.nwcorp.com/history/index.php).
If you still have it, I'd love to see the picture that you mention in your post. I know this was posted a long time ago but I'm hoping that you get this message! If you have any other questions, please let me know. Again, I'm just starting with this but becoming quickly addicted!
