My records indicate that Benjamin Wright (born about 1730 in Virginia) was married on 27 December 1756 to Elizabeth Bolling.

Benjamin was the son of Francis E. Wright and Mary Hawkins

Elizabeth was the daughter of Maj. John Bolling and Elizabeth Bland Blair

 

Thank you!

irginia, Marriages, 1660-1800 about Elizabeth Bolling

Name: Elizabeth Bolling

I find this.

I am having the same problem. I am descended from Benjamin Wright and it came up that he married her but I'm not convinced because I know there is a lot of incorrect information out there related to Bollings.
In the same situation. There seems to be several Elizabeth Bollings out there.
me as well! trying to confirm.
Elizabeth Bolling is a sister to My Benjamin Bolling. I will research my paperwork, but I do remember a Wright being a husband. I think she might have been married a few times.

Benjamin Wright may have married an Elizabeth Bolling, but not the one you're imagining. Maj. John Bolling and Elizabeth Blair did not have a daughter Elizabeth who survived childhood. (They may have tried the name Elizabeth on three of their infants, but it was not a lucky name, as all died soon.)

I think it is possible but I have not found absolute proof. Also , it leads you down a path to Pocahontas which I know to be false. I have done it and deleted it several times. There was a hoax back in the sixties where someone wanting a connection made up some extra Bollings. It even has a name, the Blue Bollings. I can also say this is an incorrect path because my DNA has absolutely no Native American blood.
