About Meotaka Sullivan (Bolling)

http://pocahontas.morenus.org/poca_gen.html

The "mysterious" Bollings a.k.a. "blue" Bollings, twelve extra children of Maj. John Bolling and Elizabeth Blair. Alas! A most numerous and enthusiastic contingent, but actually no relation. Maj. John Bolling and Elizabeth Blair had seven children who survived to adulthood, and another eleven who died as infants. The "blue" Bollings are yet another twelve children. That claim has been rejected by the Pocahontas Foundation, using standard genealogical methods. Paternal DNA tests concur that they are not Pocahontas descendants, and also show that they are several distinct, unrelated familes.

Their seven actual children who had descendants:

  • Thomas 1735-1804
  • John 1737-179?
  • Robert 1738-1769
  • Mary 1744-?
  • Sarah 1748-?
  • Archibald 1750-?
  • Anne 1752-?

Eleven more children who died without issue:

  • John 1
  • Archibald 1
  • Robert 1
  • Elizabeth 1
  • Sarah 1
  • Anne 1
  • Edward
  • Elizabeth 2
  • Jane
  • Rebecca
  • Elizabeth 3

The twelve "blue" Bollings are not considered their children:

  • Meotaka
  • William
  • Elizabeth
  • Jared
  • Martha
  • Dorothea
  • Benjamin 1734-1832
  • Jane
  • Rodney
  • Rolfe
  • Powhatan 1754-?
  • James c. 1756-?
