I'm wondering about the 2nd witness to Captain Tully Bolling's will. Could Lewis W. Shumato actually be Lewis H. Shumate (1805-1882)? He lived in Greenville, SC. His wife, Mary was a niece of Capt Bolling, through his older brother Robert (m. Rachel Tarrant). I can't see the original signature but it looks pretty likely to me.

I just looked again at a better copy of the will. Not my poor printed copy. It does say Lewis H Shumate. Correcting that.
