Another name for Benjamin was Benjamin Bolling.
His Father Isn't John Bolling As Widely Published. He was a Rev. War Vet. Not all the children listed her belong to Benjamin, but they are probably
He was the first settler on the Pound. He first came into what is now Wise County, VA about 1789 and claimed all the land that he could see on the Guest River (esserville). The pioneer built a cabin and lived there two to three years. One day a home seeker came by with a rifle and a couple of hound pups, which caught his eye. A trade was soon made and the pioneer, Ben, returned to his home and civilization thinking the lure for adventure was over. Little time had elapsed until the call of the wilderness overcame him. He shouldered his gun, whistled to his dogs, and hit the trail. A few weeks later Benjamin reached Fox Gap in the Black Mountains. He viewed the valley which was to be his home. This was to be later known as Flat Gap ( located in now what is Wise County, Va. ).
