Elizabeth (Devareau) never had any parents!

+6 votes

Ok, so God created Adam and Eve, and then some several thousands of years later created Elizabeth Devareau Bowling. She had no parents but came into the world out of nothing.

Really, this is a true brick wall for me. I've looked and looked to no avail, even when I changed the spelling to the more common Devereau. I've not finished formatting and linking all of my sources for her yet, but you can visit her profile to see what I've got on her. I also have not entered the other nine children yet.

Anyone who truly breaks through this brick wall wins their choice of a bottle of Merlot or a meal at Marco's Trattaoria in Brevard, NC. Go for it!

Thanks, folks!!!!

From a quick look, I'd say she was born 1810, died 25 Feb 1886, Tansylvania, NC, married 15 Jun 1828 • Greenville, Spartanburg, South Carolina, United States.

Parents (with a shared gravestone):
Rodney Bolling
Birth 1784-06-08 • Henry, Virginia, USA
Death 1835-02-23 • Duquoin, Perry, Illinois, USA

Tricy Harris
Birth 1791-06-10 • Rockingham, Virginia, USA
Death 1878-06-20 • Duquoin, Perry, Illinois, USA
Hi again, Bruce. I’ve seen this referenced somewhere else, Rodney being the father of Dudley, Elizabeth’s husband. However, I think there’s a stronger case of a John who lived in York County, SC, and maybe in NC for a while. I’ve had to discount the supposed ancestor of said John being Benjamin Bolling of Virginia as there is no source that satisfies me. The Bowling descendants have, however, claimed descent from Pocahontas and John Rolfe through their Bolling progeny. Thanks for the heads-up, though. I’m leaving those doors open until I break down that brick wall.

I looked with no luck, but found what I think might be her 1850 census record:

"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8QN-XV2 : 12 April 2016), Elizabeth Boling in household of D A Boling, Greenville county, part of, Greenville, South Carolina, United States; citing family 922, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.).




Hi, Gaile. Yep, that’s her. Thanks for digging up this source for me.
