Husband's General Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
      BOUILLE: French:
      1. Topographic name of someone who lived by a marsh. (a derivitive of
      boue=mud, of celtic origin.
      2. Topographic name of someone who lived bu a birch grove.
      Variants=Delbouille--Bouillot--Bouillon--Bouillat--Bouillard.
      BOUL: French:
      1. Topographic name for someone who lived by a birch tree.
      2. Nickname for a short, rotund man. From Boule which means "ball".
      Variants=Beaulieu--BOLEY--Boulier--Boliou--Boulle--Boulet--BOULEY--
      B oulez-- Bouleau --Boullot-- Boulay--Bouloy--Boulais--Bouille

      From a novel "The Forest" by Edward Rutherford page 96:
      "Bellus Locus, the abbey was called in Latin---The Beautiful Place; in
      Norman French: Beau Lieu. But the forest people did not speak French, so
      pronounced it Boolee or Bewley."

      Came from Kentucky (according to sons notation on 1910 and 1920
      Census for Spokane, Wa.).

      Did some kind of mining as he was killed in a mine cave in and died in the
      arms of his son Frank (Fielding), at which time Frank left home for the
      West Coast.

      In a letter from Pat Fields:
      My husband's grandmother was Susan Caroline Boley, daughter of
      Charlotte Martha Langley & Samuel Franklin Boley.
      Susan Caroline Boley married Alden Asbury Fields: born 2 Dec l874; died
      24 Nov l935. They were married 2 Dec l895, we believe.
      George Boley, brother of above, was the youngest of the 5 living
      children who was about 3 or 4 yrs. old when Grandpa Boley was killed by
      the cave-in of a small coal mine he was working on the family's place.
      Grandma Boley moved to town and supported the family by taking in
      washing and with the $l5/month widow's pension. At the time of her
      death, it was $32/month!

      According to Family stories Samuel is supposed to have fought in the
      Civil War for the North and been a dispatch rider for General Grant.

      Subject: Samuel Boley-
      Date: Sun, 04 Jul 1999 10:04:14 -0600
      From: Mark Andersen <mander@montana.net>
      To: FBouley@prodigy.net
      Came across an old query (1997) regarding Samuel Boley on the Carroll
      County MO GenWeb site.
      My gg grandfather John Newton Vance purchased land from Samuel F.
      Boley in Carroll County in 1868. At about the same time he purchased
      land from Elizabeth B. Boley. I assume there was some relationship
      between Samuel and Elizabeth, maybe brother and sister in law?
      John Vance and his wife are both buried on the property purchased from
      Elizabeth. We are trying to pinpoint the location of the property.

      From Eric Gordon:
      BOLEY, Samuel Franklin- was born on 17 Sep 1834 in Ky. He died on 15
      Oct 1888 in Mo. He married BEASLEY, Mary E.. She was born on 15 Mar
      1845 in OH. She died on 3 Jan 1927 in WA. (Wrong information--She
      died about 1870) They were married on 14 Oct 1855 in Mo. BOLEY,
      Samuel Franklin- also married LANGLEY(CLARK), Charolotte Martha-.

      From Jo Boley Wahlgren:
      I did obtain copies of military information about him from the national
      archives. The reason I have such an interest in Samuel is that he served
      for the north in the 'war', my great-grandfather fought for the
      'south'...however, he was a member of the Missouri State Guard, which
      was later absorbed by the Confederacy. He was captured twice. The
      first time, he went to prison and served a short time in Alton, IL. The
      second time, he escaped.

      Note from Linda Brown at calebsmimi@hotmail.com 7 Apr 2003
      "My info is that he was a barber"

      Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2000 17:05:14 -0500
      From: "J. BERTELS" <jbertels@bertels-usa.com>
      Organization: Bertels Corp.
      To: <FBouley@prodigy.net>
      Dear Frank,
      In the information that you sent, it states that Sam Boley was both in
      the 10th Mo. Infantry and the 10th Mo Cavalry----followed by service in
      2nd Mo Cavalry. From the dates and other information, I suspect that
      Sam Boley's regiment may have originally formed as infantry and then
      been merged with other companies to form a cavalry regiment---the 2nd
      Mo. Cavalry.
      My great-grandfather, Joseph Bertels, also served as a private in 10th MO Cavalry, Co. G.
      I would appreciate hearing if you might have additional information or letters from Sam Boley.
      They both served under Capt. Benteen who later survived Custer's Last Stand. (read "Harvest of Barren Regrets).
      Regards, Jo

      From "Complete Book of Immigrants 1700-1750" by Peter Wilson
      Coldham-p.162 : 16-19 April Shippers by the William and Elizabeth of
      London, Mr. William James, bound from Plymouth for Boston: Peter
      Gawden, SAMUEL BOULET. (Public Records Office, Chancery Lane, London:
      E190/1074/26). Is this my Samuels ancestor perhaps? (Doubtful)

      1840 (Reel M704) and 1850 (Reel M432) for Kentucky census has been
      searched.

      Missouri1880 Census-Enum. Dist.175 Line 22 Sheet 30 V.21

      Missouri census for 1850 ( reel M432 CARR 395 049 line 12) lists:
      SAMUEL BOLEY 16 YRS. OLD-- FARMER-- BORN IN KENTUCKY (That would
      make his birth date in Kentucky as 1834) working for and staying with
      Logan H. Ballow age 33 and wife Ann,29.
      If this is Frank Sr. father, he would have been 33 when he had Frank,
      which is reasonable since Frank was youngest of three. It also means he
      would have been in his late 20's for the Civil war.

      IGI (1988) for Missouri (p.1803) lists:
      1. Samuel F. Boley married to Mary E. Beasley on 14Oct1855
      2. Samuel F. Boley married to Charlotte Martha Clark 5Apr1871
      Both marriages in Carroll County.
      Since Frank Sr. was born 5/Dec/1867 and his mother died shortly there
      after, this fits.

      Also another possibility. 1910 Spokane census for Frank Sr. says his
      father was from Kentucky and his mother was from Virginia. Dad used to
      say that he thought his grandmother was a "Bowen of Kentucky" Could he
      have mis-heard.? (Since Elizabeth remarried, after Fielding left for the
      Colorado gold fields, to a Bowen, it would make sense that Grandfather
      (Frank/Fielding) would have thought that his grandmother was a Bowen.
      He was three when she remarried.

      James C. Neagles, U.S. Military Records: A Guide to Federal and State
      Sources, p.286 1861-65 Although it was a slave state, Missouri
      remained loyal to the Union during the Civil War. Guerillas fighting in
      Missouri and along the Arkansas border attempted unsuccessfully to
      separate Missouri from the Union. Missouri contributed 109,111 soldiers
      to the Union effort during the Civil War, more than any other border
      state.

      Samuel listed as citizen of Hale, Carroll co. Mo. aged 52 in 1886

      There is an S.F. Boley buried in Avalon Cemetery in Fairview Township in
      Livingston Co. Mo.

      From Ron Martin
      It's very possible that Samuel F. Boley lived & was buried in Carroll
      County, MO. His brother, William Alexander Boley (b:1839 Hale, Carroll
      Co.) and Wm.'s son William A. Boley JR. (b:1882 Triplette, Carroll Co.)
      were both born in Carroll County, MO. Later my William A. Boley SR.& JR
      moved to Sumner, Chariton Co where all my Uncles & Aunts & my dad was
      born (in 1920s). In 1933 after Wm A. Boley SR. died, Wm. A. JR and his
      family moved to Livingston Co. where there are still relatives. Even I and
      my siblings were born there in the 1940's

Wife's General Notes
 

      According to Spokane Census of 1910, grandpa (Fielding Franklin Boley)
      said his mother was born in Virginia. But family rumor has always said
      "Bowen of Kentucky" However this was probably a mistake and he was
      probably referring to his grandmother Elizabeth (nee Macdowell) who had
      remarried a Bowen.

      Frank Bouley Sr. , on his death certificate, it says his mother was a
      Bowen of West Virginia, but this information was offered by Frank Jr.
      who was not sure. She may have been Beasley.
      My father (Frank Bouley jr.) used to say that he had heard his father refer
      to his mother or grandmother as a "BOWEN OF KENTUCKY" If my
      grandfathers grandmother was Elizabeth McDowell who had married
      Fielding William Boley, son of Vincent, then that is another "clincher"
      for me as Fielding latter took off for the gold fields and Elizabeth
      married John Bowen in 1870 (three years after the birth of my
      grandfather whom I believe to be the latter Fielding.) Naturally gramps
      would have thought of his grandmother as a "BOWEN"

      SOURCES:
      The 1870 Census for Chariton County, Mo. gives Mary E. Boley as age 39
      and lists her birth place as Missouri.

      Information from Boley Affidavits:
      First wife was Mary E. Boley nee Beasley who died Chariton Co. Mo. in
      1871---Testified to by Samuel Boley's brothers listed as:
      W.A. Boley age 52 in 1888
      James V. Boley aged 54 in 1888
      (Both made their mark)

      In "Gone to Missouri" there is:
      BEASLEY Mary A. from Holt County Mo to Holt County Mo 1853

      On 29 April 1868 John Newton Vance purchased 40 acres of land from
      Elizabeth B. Boley in Section 2, T54N, R22W.

      "Fielden" W. Boley.

      On 6 March 1869 John Newton Vance purchased 40 acres from Elizabeth
      B. Boley in Section 5 T54N R22E.

      On 21 December 1870 John Newton Vance sold the parcel listed above to
      his brother, Silas Vance. As near as we can tell, Silas and his wife
      stayed there until their deaths.
