Yes! The site you gave me is a great resource for the Bolling/Bowling family! I got to know Randy several years ago, and had spoken to him several times, adding my own line to his genealogy. It was so sad to hear he'd passed away from cancer!
(Just so you know, I've been in touch with Libby Preston, a very nice lady who now does the upkeep for the site, and if you'd like to add your branch to the tree, or update any information, she's the one to contact.)
Have you ever come across anything in your research to connect our Bowlings to the melungeons? (I posted several articles about them on the forum if you haven't already read through them.) The reason I ask is, my great-grandmother, Irene Lucy Bowling, evidently spoke broken english. My grandfather (her son) used to say he could recall that his grandmother, Irene's mother, spoke even heavier broken english yet nothing indicates on either side of the family, anyone newly immigrated, and I've looked several generations back. He also said that they'd told him it was due to being from "Deutchland" (Germany), but again, nothing to indicate a new immigrant on any side of the family.
It had become one of those mini-mysteries, however, when I read about the fact that many of the melungeons spoke with broken english, despite being away from the "old country" for several generations, it got me to wondering if perhaps this might be the answer to that little anomaly.
I know there's been much speculation and conjecture as to whether our family is part of the Red Bollings or not and no one has been able to really go beyond Benjamin Bowling Sr. of 1704 to see if we are connected.
Another interesting thing is that the melungeon people tended to take on names of those they befriended, as a show of great respect (American Indians have been known to do this as well), which is how experts suspect some of these people often turn up with very English names though their ancestry seems to be a melting pot of predominantly Eastern European and American Indian, and sometimes African.
My grandfather said there is Cherokee blood in the family(and looking at a photo my granny has of Irene Lucy Bowling, she really looks like she had some Indian blood in her) yet again, the genealogy (if taken at face value) disproves this. However, if you look at it from the point of view that we may be descended from melungeons, it makes total sense!
I don't know if it can ever be 100% proven, but it sure is a fascinating idea, and satisfies a lot of those "mini-mysteries" I've got with this side of the family. :D
