      Mr. Hennessee,
      as you can see, Frieda forwarded your file of Bouldin data to me because I am a
      desc. also of Noble Bouldin of Warren Co TN.

      I think that if you research a bit furtherback into the court records of Warren
      County, you will find that Noble Bouldin was not the husband of Mary Hill, as you
      have recorded in your files. In fact, Noble was her father in law. She married his
      son Gideon Bouldin. Gideon was the father of the children you have attributed to
      Noble.

      Benjamin Hill, Mary "Polly"'s father (1783-1852) was the son of Isaac Hill.
      Benjamin married Rebecca Wallace. Mary Hill was born 9 Dec 1802 and died in 1853.
      Her husband Gideon Bouldin was born 29 June 1796 and died in Alabama in 1875, in
      Etowah County at a place called Duck Springs.

      Polly Bouldin sued Gideon for divorce in the Circuit Court of Warren County TN in
      the May Term of 1846. Gideon had already gone to Al at that time...the suit lists
      him as a non-resident of the state of TN. Polly accused him of Adultry and
      maltreatment.

      The Noble Bouldin who was the son of Gideon and Mary was born 10 Dec 1822 and
      married Elizabeth Grissom. Elizabeth was a cousin...her parents were Robert Thomas
      Grissom and Sarah Bouldin. Sarah Bouldin was the daughter of Nathan Bouldin, who
      was Gideon's brother. Noble and Elizabeth married 23 Dec 1844 in Van Buren Co TN,
      and she died 17 Oct 1910 and is interred in the Long Cemetery in Van Buren Co. I
      do not know when her husband died.
      Robert Thomas Grissom and Sarah Bouldin's son George Washington Grissom, born
      1850-2, was my ancestor.

      Noble Bouldin, who you have erroneously placed as Mary Hill's husband, was married
      to a woman named Temperance and possibly married before that to a woman named Mary
      Lawd Thompson. There is documentation in early church records for Temperance but I
      have NEVER seen documentation for Mary Lawd Thompson. The known children of Noble
      come from an estate record from Warren County TN dated 1 Jan 1836, which states
      that Noble died 17 Aug 1830 and left the following heirs:

      Sons Gideon, Louis, Reuben, deceasd son Nathan's heirs, and dau Ellinder Stansill.

      Other folks have tried to tack onto this list of children, but I have never seen
      documentation for them in any hard records: Noble Jr, Silas, Frances, Mary.

      Temperance Bouldin, Noble's wife, died in 1833. Church records specify her as the
      wife of Noble Bouldin, because there were 2 Temperance Bouldins in the
      church...her, and a younger Temperance also married to a Bouldin...I have a record
      of this younger Tempy's maiden name somewhere but do not know who she married.

      There are deed records in Warren Co TN dated between 1824-26 which do include
      Silas Bouldin, Louis Bouldin, Noble Bouldin, Temperance Bouldin, Gideon Bouldin,
      and also a David and Eli Bouldin.

      Hope this info helps yu
      Regina Roper
