Missed Part 1 and Part 2? Just click to see them.
When I found not one, but two connections to Pocahontas, I thought that was the end of it. I moved on to my next research project, the Sanders line. As you will recall from part 1, my maternal 2nd great grandparents were Lora D Boling and Eva Mae Sanders.
Eva was the daughter of Delaney BH Sanders and Louetta Smith. Delaney was the son of Doctor Delaney Thomas Sanders (known as Dock) and Angeline McManaway. Dock was the son of Delaney Sanders and Nancy Alcott Boling.
Since I had just finished up researching the Boling-Pocahontas connection, the Boling name caught my interest so I took a slight detour from my Sanders research to look into the Boling name. Nancy Alcott Boling was the daughter of James Thomas Boling (the younger one) and Nancy Ann Ellicock. As you will recall from part 2, the younger James Thomas Boling was the son of James Thomas Bolling and Elizabeth Gay, both 3rd great grandchildren of Pocahontas.
As it turns out, this wasn't the only Boling-Sanders marriage. Five of Delaney Sanders and Nancy Alcott Boling's children married Bolings. Nancy Ellen Sanders married Henry Boling. John Abbot Sanders married Malissa Jane Boling. Both of these Bolings were children of John Boling Jr and Aschah Matherly.
Martha Ann Sanders married James Lewis Boling. He was a son of John Farmer Boling and Joysay Quisenberry. John Farmer Boling was the son of James Thomas Boling Jr and Jane Morrison. James Thomas Boling Jr was the son of James Thomas Boling (the younger) and Nancy Ann Ellicock.
Sarah Emily Sanders married William Henry Boling. He was a son of James Jackson Boling and Frances Jane Oberchain. James Jackson Boling was the son of James Thomas Boling Jr and Jane Morrison.
Isom Henderson Sanders married Artelia Mattie Boling. Her parents were Jordan Boling and Nancy J Lane. Jordan was the son of James Thomas Boling Jr and Jane Morrison.
Another child of Delaney and Nancy married someone with a connection to the Boling line. Melissa Jane Sanders married John Quisenberry, son of Moses Quisenberry and Sarah Boling. Sarah Boling (sometimes Bolling) was the daughter of John Boling Sr and Achsah Matherly.
