* Virgil D. White's "Index to War of 1812 Pension Files,"
There are four BOLEY/BOWLEY, one BOLLY/BOWLEY, and one BOLY in War of 1812 pension application files at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. Whether one or more of the BOLEY/BOLLY/BOLY/BOWLEY records will turn out to relate to Frank Bouley's family can only be discovered by reading the files of "BOLEY, Frederick, srv. USN, See Rev War Files, srv 1798-1800 in French War, BLW Reg #1396-55; John (or BOWLEY) SC-24400, srv Carver Willis' Co VA Mil, lived Fauquier Co, VA; Nicholas (or BOWLEY) SC-7769, Nancy (Watson) m 14 Feb 1814 Bairdstown KY, sd 16 Jan 1884 in IN, srv Joseph McCloskey's KY Mil, Lived Harrison Co, IN;" and "Peter, SC-3630, Mary (Southard) m Oct or Nov 1817 Switzerland Co IN, sd 26 Nov 1879, wd 1 Jan 1880, srv John Farmer's KY Mil, lived Carroll Co KY;" "BOLLY, John (or BOWLEY), no pension claim, srv Neely's VA Mil, BLW #s 16011-80-50 & 31145-80-55;" and "BOLY, Thomas, Mary, Old War, WF-#12317, srv as Pvt in 22nd US Inf in War of 1812." ["sd" means soldier died and "wd" means widow died]
* Virgil D. White's "Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files" contains an abstract of the pension file of Frederick BOLEY mentioned above, and that of "BOLEY, Prestley, S39204, Cont Line (VA), sol appl 20 Aug 1818 Bedford Co VA, in 1820 sol was aged 66 with wife Polly aged 37 & children; Harriet 16, Martha 14, John 12 & William aged 10, sol d 20 May 1838." John D. Gwathmey's "Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution" lists "BOLEY, Peter, 4 CL," "BOLEY, Presley, Corp. 1 Light Dragoons," and "BOLEY, Priestley, Bedford pensioner."
Speaking of the vagaries of spelling, I wondered whether Presley, Priestley, and Prestley, were the same person. I then checked the Centennial edition of the DAR "Patriot Index" where I found only the following single entry under the heading BOLEY: "Pressley Mountford: b 12-15-1766 VA d 5-20-1838 VA m Polly A. -- Pvt CL PNSR" ["CL" means "Continental Line" and "PNSR" means pensioner].
* If James R. Boley is brother to Fielding (as it appears) here is information on him:
James R. Boley, was born whithin a mile and a half of Danville, Kentucky, in 1808. In 1829 he removed from Kentucky to Madison Co., ILL and in 1832 from there to MO. In 1834 he came to Carroll Co, and after a residence in Combs Township for six years, he moved north and settled in the north-west corner of Township fifty-four, twenty-two. There were then not many more than a dozen families living in the east part of the County north of Big Creek. No settlements had been made at all on the prairie, and the whole country was a wilderness. His first wife was Jemima W. Gentry, whom he married in Kentucky. His first wife having died, he was married in 1853, to Mrs. Elizabeth Phillips, whose maiden name was Lynch. Mrs. Boley was born in TN in 1815, and in all probability there is no person now living who was in Carroll Co. at an earlier date. Her father David Lynch, came to the Co about 1819, or 1820, at the same time with Nathaniel Cary, when she was only four years old. Her parents soon afterward, on account of sickness, moved to Lafayette Co, where she resided til 1841, when she came back to Carroll CO. Mr Boley has been an old Whig and now Democrat in politics. He has been a pioneer of his section of the Co. And both he and his wife are hearty and vigourous in view of their advanced years, and the hardships they have undergon in the early settlement of the country.
