This Tombstone Tuesday post is dedicated to my friend & co-worker Rachel. I’ve been working on her family tree for a few years now off and on and she recently did a little online searching of her own and found tombstone pictures of her 3rd great-grandparents, William Bolinger and Henrietta Catherine (Bowers) Bolinger. They are buried in Rheatown Cemetery in Rheatown, Greene County, Tennessee.
William (1826-1900) was born in Virginia according to census records and though I don’t yet have documentation of his parents, they were of foreign birth. Henrietta (1831-1916) was also from Virginia, the daughter of Jacob Bowers and wife Mary. Henry & Henrietta were married July 18, 1854 in Greene County and from what I’ve gathered so far, had 7 children. In reviewing the records I see I have much more to do for this line; so many branches, so little time.
