That certainly sounds plausible. Temperance was nee SANDERS/SAUNDERS and
her husband was named LEWIS.

*IF* the 1850 Lewis and Susan BOLIN are the same ones that married in
Lawrence Co., AL - what were they doing in AL? Was Lewis a younger brother
to the Alexander and James M. BOLING listed in the 1820 Lawrence Co., AL
census? AND was Susanna perhaps a widow GUEST? If she were born in NC in
1800 and married Lewis BOLIN when she was 24, perhaps she had been married
previously. I believe the other Susan (that married Wiley McDaniel) was
Martin GUEST's daughter.

Somewhere on the internet I found a site that named Martin's wife as Sarah
(nee LINDSEY) STEWART. Does anyone have any information on a possible wife
for the Lawrence Co., AL, Martin GUEST? Sometimes I wonder if that may have
been his middle name.

Was Lewis's mother Temperance? Here's why I ask. First, based on the birth
places of Lewis and Susan's children, Lewis would have been in TN by 1830.
There is a Temperance BOLIN who appears on the Warren Co. 1830 census. She
is listed 1m 1-15 and 1 male 20-30. She has 1 female 10-15, 2 females
15-20, 3 females 20-30, and 1 female 40-50. If Temperance was Lewis's
mother, it seems likely that the 20-30 male is probably Lewis, and one of
the 20-30 females is probably Susan.
