About Elizabeth Bolling (Lewis)

Elizabeth Lewis, daughter of Col. John Lewis and wife Elizabeth Warner, was baptized on 7 May 1706. She married (1) William Rush on 12 Jun 1728. She married (2) John Kennon Bolling, son of John Fairfax Bolling and wife Mary Kennon, as his first wife. She died soon after the marriage. She had no children. Since John remarried in 1728, we know that she died before that date.

Some sources claim that there was daughter, Nancy Bolling, born to Elizabeth and John, but no sources or proofs to this claim are included. It is further claimed that this Nancy Bolling married John "Rockhouse" Sizemore. The Nancy who married John Sizemore was born in 1778 in Tennessee. [See http://www.geni.com/people/Nancy-Sizemore/6000000010682095659].
