Joseph Bollinger Elizabeth "White" Bollinger

 


                    --- Family History of Elizabeth White and Joseph Bollinger ---

Joseph Bollinger was the son of Nancy Savits and David Bollinger. His wife Elizabeth White was the daughter of Pressia Addington and John White.

                                           - David and Nancy Bollinger -

In late 1799 David Bollinger and his wife Nancy Savits were living in North Carolina when a number of David's brothers and nephews, led by his  youngest brother George Fredrick Bollinger, moved their families from NC to MO. At that time Missouri was still under Spanish rule and the men were given land grants by the Spanish government on the condition that they would settle on the land with their families and improve it. David did not make the move to Missouri with that initial band of relatives. Apparently, he waited until the ownership of that territory passed into the hands of the US government in 1803 before going west to determine whether he wanted to move his wife and children that far from "civilization." 

David's name was recorded as a head-of-household in the Cape Girardeau district in 1803. However, since his son Henry was born in North Carolina in 1806 while son Joseph was born in Missouri in 1808, it must have taken him a few years to transport his family there. Some have said David was the Methodist minister who built the first stone church in southern Missouri. If so, his first years there may have been as an itinerant minister and he may have waited until he had a permanent home before be finally moved his wife and children out to live with him. The land on which David Bollinger settled his family was in Cape Girardeau Co. near Baker's Mill, an area of Missouri that later became Bollinger county in 1851. David and Nancy lived there with their seven children who survived to adulthood: 1) "Polly" Mary Magdalene, 2) Andrew, 3) David, 4) John, 5) Henry, 6) Elizabeth and 7) Joseph Bollinger. David died in 1821 before any of his children married. However, within a year, his eldest daughter Polly married his nephew Phillip Bollinger and the following year sons Andrew and David also married. Nancy probably depended on these older children to help with raising her youngest three children.

                                             - John and Pressia White -

Years after David and Nancy settled in Cape Giradeau Co., another North Carolina couple heard about promising land that was available in the West. In the late summer of 1817 John White and his pregnant wife Pressia decided to pack up their one-year old daughter Matilda along with their few slaves and head out to seek their fortune in those western lands. However, as they passed through Missouri that fall, Pressia went into labor and delivered a new daughter whom they named Elizabeth. John decided to give his wife and newborn child a chance to recover for several days before resuming their journey west. During this delay, John road around the nearby country side and was so impressed by what he saw that he decided to settled there in what later became Madison County Missouri. Thus, Elizabeth, the first of the White Family children born in Missouri, played an instrumental part in how the White family set down roots in Madison County.

John bought land near the Castor River. His home was reportedly located on the Post Road between St. Louis and New Madrid some ten to fifteen miles east of the crossroad at St. Michael's (just north of present day Fredericktown). Not only did John and Pressia farm their land with the help of their slaves but they also ran a stagecoach stop and inn at their home where spent horses were exchanged for a fresh team and where weary travelers could find good food and/or comfortable accommodations for the night. 

In 1818 Madison County was formed from land that included the White's property and in July of 1819 John was selected to serve on the first Grand Jury of Madison County. Over the next 30 years John and Pressia worked hard and prospered. Their household was
blessed with five more daughters and three sons giving them a total of ten children who lived to adulthood: 1) Matilda, 2) Elizabeth, 3) Jonathan, 4) Susannah, 5) Nancy B., 6) Julie Ann, 7) Pressia, 8) Jeannette, 9) President Jackson and 10) Joseph H. White.

Around 1830, two of John White's brothers (David Alexander and William) moved their families from northern Georgia/Alabama to Missouri and settled in Madison County also. Because records in northern Georgia indicate that these two brothers were about
to be brought up on assault charges at that time, it is suspected that the brothers moved west to avoid their difficulties with the law.  These three White brothers with their wives and children formed a large extended family group in Madison County. Most likely they
enjoyed each other's company and they visited with each other quite often. More importantly, they could count on each other for help for any problems that arose. There is even a family story that Elizabeth Yokely White, the widowed matriarch of the family, sold her property in NC and, with the money in her pocket, setout on foot by herself to
join this large group of her descendents in MO. When she arrived, her teenage granddaughter Elizabeth White (later Bollinger) was very impressed that such an old woman would not only attempt to make such a journey by herself but also arrive safely.

By 1850, John and Pressia owned eleven slaves: two older than 45, three younger adults over age 17 and six children under age 11. When John died in the Fall of 1857, his will directed than his slaves would remain with his wife until her death when they were all to be
freed. However, as a result of the Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War, his slaves were freed years before that provision of his will could be executed or challenged by his descendents at the death of his wife Pressia The fact that John put such a provision in his will speaks well for the kind of person he was. Possibly, John's example influenced his younger brother William to stipulate in his own will that his two oldest slaves (siblings Uncle Dick and Aunt Hannah) were to remain with his wife Sarah until her death and then they were to be freed. 

                                       - Bollinger and White Marriages -

As the White children grew up and married, other nearby families like the Bollingers, Whitworths and Higdons were brought into this expanding family group by these marriages. In 1834 sisters Matilda and Elizabeth White (daughters of John and Pressia) married brothers Henry and Joseph Bollinger (sons of David and Nancy). The two brothers may have met the two sisters while visiting or living with an older Bollinger brother David and his wife Nancy Fulbright who had settled in Madison Co. before 1830. Matilda and Henry married about six months before Joseph and Elizabeth.  Both newlywed couples setup housekeeping not far from their White andBollinger relatives. 

                            - David Bollinger and his wife Nancy Fulbright -

In 1836, brother David Bollinger died but his widow Nancy and only child Sarah continued to live in Madison county. Sarah grew up to marry Napoleon Bonaparte Allen in 1841. Some years later during the Civil War, one of Nancy's slaves Adam Bollinger attacked and stabbed to death another slave Jack Matthews when he found out the other slave was sneaking  around visiting with his wife. The murderer escaped and was not brought to trial until many years later after the murdered man's son grew up and tracked down the murderer. He found Jack living in St. Louis under the assumed name Jonathan or John Allen (same last name as Nancy's son-in-law). 

                               - Henry Bollinger and his wife Matilda White -

Henry and Matilda Bollinger seemed to prosper in the early years of their marriage. In the 1840 Census for Madison county, Henry apparently was wealthy enough to own thirteen slaves: six adults over the age of 19, two youths and five children under ten years old. However the 1850 census data reported that Henry owned only two slaves (one sixteen and one six years old) indicating that Henry's financial situation may have taken a turn for the worse and he had to sell most of his slaves. (Did he sell some of those slaves to relatives? Were some sold "down the river" in New Orleans?) In 1853 Matilda Bollinger contracted measles and died, leaving her husband to raise their five children.

In 1860 Henry lived with his four older children near Fredericktown while his youngest child Sarah lived with grandmother Pressia White at Castor. It is not known what happened to Henry and his four older children after 1860 but Sarah remained in Missouri at least until 1880 when she lived in Madison County MO with her aunt and uncle Pressia White and John Whitworth. Reportedly, she eventually married an H. H. Woods 
of Texas.

                            - Joseph Bollinger and his wife Elizabeth White -

Joseph and Elizabeth Bollinger lived in Madison Co. MO in 1850 but in 1854 they bought a farm near Sabula in Iron Co. and moved there. In 1850 Joseph owned only four slaves: one adult male age 25, one teenage male aged 14 and two children, a 4-year-old male and 2-two-year old female. After moving to Iron Co. Joseph probably needed more slaves
to help him work his farm since he no longer had relatives near by to help him. According to the 1860 slave census, Joseph Bollinger  owned 11 slaves: eight males aged 27, 22, 14, 8, 7, 6, 5, and 4; three females aged 26, 12 and 10. Three of these slaves probably had been owned by Joseph in 1850: the two males aged 27 and 14 and the female aged 12. This young female slave was probably the Hannah Allen who was interviewed in 1937 about her memories of slave life before the end of the Civil War. The man she married in 1866 was probably Adam Wernecke, the 37 year old Blacksmith, who was married to 22
year old Hannah and listed in the 1870 Census for the St. Michael township of Madison Co. Hannah was most likely listed in the 1900 Census for St. Michael township as the 53 year old widow Hannah Wernecke who had borne no children and in the 1920 Census as the 65 year old Mary H. Allen, married to preacher William C. Allen.  (NOTE - Hannah Allan was not the older Aunt Hannah owned by William White and she apparently misstated in the interviews her age, claiming to be 107 when she was actually about 20 years younger.)

According to the former slave Hannah Allen, at age two she and her brother George (probably the 4-year old slave of 1850) had been separated from their mother and three older siblings because her "white people" sold the mother and children at New Orleans. She and her brother were kept by Joseph and Elizabeth Bollinger and, as a child, her main job was to help Betsy (Elizabeth) Bollinger take care of the smaller Bollinger children. The young slave girl often slept on a Buffalo skin rug on the floor next to the Bollinger couple's 
bed so she would be handy should Elizabeth need help with a child in the night. The Bollinger's young son Billie became so attached to her brother George that he would often go to George's quarters near the main house to sleep at night. The former slave also reported that the Bollingers moved from Madison Co. where she was born to Sabula, MO, before the Civil War. 

Hannah indicated that around the beginning of the Civil War "oldman" Bollinger planned to take all of his slaves to Texas but only got them as far as Rockport, Arkansas. That is how Hannah came to be in Arkansas  when Joseph Bollinger's eldest daughter Olive Higdon died there around  1863. Olive had married John R. Higdon around 1859 in Madison Co. 
and her son John H. Higdon was born in 1861. Hannah's interview recounts the many difficulties Olive's husband John encountered when he and Hannah brought his son back to Missouri after Olive died in Arkansas during the Civil War. When they finally arrived in Ironton at the store of Olive's uncle Isaac Whitworth (married to Nancy White), John Higdon was arrested by Union soldiers. The soldiers took Hannah and the young boy on to the Bollingers' farm near Sabula before transporting John Higdon to prison.

Some of the stories of the former Bollinger slave seem to be in agreement with Bollinger family stories told by Joseph's granddaughter Mamie Bollinger Coleman. According to Mamie, Joseph Bollinger and his family had a fairly comfortable relationship with their slaves and their slaves usually ate at the same table with the Bollinger family. Mamie also indicated that Joseph Bollinger had taken his slaves to Arkansas at the beginning of the Civil War in hopes that the Union government would not be able to free the slaves if they were in a Confederate state. According to Mamie, a short time later some members of the Union army in Missouri came to the Bollinger homestead looking for Joseph and the family presumed that if these men had found Joseph, they probably would have killed him. Fortunately for Joseph, who was hiding up in the loft where his children normally slept, his wife Elizabeth convinced the Union men that Joseph was not at home. In addition, she persuaded them not to burn down her home for the sakes of her young children, saving both her house and her husband. 

Joseph and Elizabeth had six sons and six daughters (Jonathan, Nancy Olivia, Jane "Jenny," Precia Matilda "Tilda", John H., Susan, Francis, Joseph Samuel "Joe Sam", William "Billie", Samantha, Augustus and Charles "Charlie". Joseph and Elizabeth resided on their farm near Sabula for the rest of their lives and most of their children and grandchildren lived near by. The large family enjoyed getting together for family occasions and participating in their church social life, especially church picnics and all-day camp meetings with dinner on the grounds where there was plenty of roasted meats and baked pies. Joseph died in 1886 and his wife Elizabeth died eleven years later. Both are buried in the Bollinger family cemetery along with a number of their descendents.

Their oldest son Jonathan died at age 19 while on his way to visit his White grandparents in Madison Co. MO in 1855. He was buried near the grandparents' farm in the McClanahan Cemetery where many of his White relatives are also interred. Second son John H. was sent with the family slaves to Arkansas when he was 17 and was conscripted into the Confederate Army in Arkansas soon after he turned 18 in 1862. He fought with 34th Infantry, Regiment D until he was put under arrest in 1864. He soon deserted and signed the Oath of Alligence to the Union in April 1864. Sadly, he developed a fever and died in 1865. Later, in the mid 1880s the Bollinger's lost a third son, young happy-go-lucky Billie 
Bollinger, when a tree fell and struck him on the head while he was hauling lumber for his brother-in-law William Coleman. Billie lingered four to five hours at the home of his sister Samatha Coleman before he died and left his young widow to raise their three small children. 

The other three sons of Joseph and Elizabeth all lived until after 1910 apparently on the family farm. While the youngest son Charlie never married, the other two sons, Joe Sam and Augustus, both married and had five or six children each. After his mother died, Charlie lived first with his brother Joe Sam's family and later with brother Augustus' family. 
The six Bollinger daughters (Nancy Olivia, Jane "Jenny," Precia Matilda "Tilda", Susan, Francis and Samantha) all married and had between one and six children each. Most of these daughters (except Olivia who died young) raised their families in or near Iron County, not far from their parents farm. After Joseph and Elizabeth both died, their daughter Samantha Coleman moved to south Texas with her husband and children.

d. prob. 1830-1840 Madison Co. MO. Thought to be daughter of Mary Dill and John Yokley/Yokely/Yokeley of Rowan Co. NC.
