This is really fascinating. I will have to do more digging in the Bolling tree to see what I find. As I said, my Richard Dean(e) was brought to Henrico Co., VA in 1713 by Col. John Bolling, was apprenticed to him for 7 years, living adjacent to him, and then adj. to his son, Maj. John Bolling. Col. Bolling apparently lent him the money to buy his land, (he had a 1725 Patent in what is now Goochland, VA) and later made humble suit, repossessing the land, as Richard failed to improve it. He later had a 1748 (posthumous) Land Patent in the French Huguenot Lands in Henrico, which I believe were earlier surveyed by the Bollings, under the auspices of Gov. Byrd of VA.
A couple of my Dean cousins are also Pocahontas descendants, through other of their families; hmm.... There is also a Coleman-Roe Cemetery in Fairfield Co., SC, where my ancestors are buried. I will check that out, too; I would love to be able to authenticate this latest information.
Thanks for the info! - Will get back to you later.
