probate papers was a bill from a doctor stating that he had made home calls
daily in Nov and Dec and about every other day in Jan and Feb. After Daniel's
death Mary bought a loom and went to weaving to provide for the family.


John BOYLAN

BIOGRAPHY: !ARCHIVES:Handwriting comparison of documents with true signatures in NJ
Archives, Trenton NJ distinguish between documents signed by this individual
and another of the same name 1746-1793 who operated a store in Pluckemin NJ and
served in the Continenal Army, (Battle of Long Island) and was a Somerset Co
Judge. This John Boylan is styled "tavernkeeper" in the Pound probate record
(1771) and "John Boylan, Sr" in a 1781 record, suggesting that he was older
than the other individual. In 1783, he is styled "merchant"--possibly the shoe
business which became important in this region after the Revolutionary War and
supported by circumstantial evidence: John Boylan, Jr. operated a tanyard from
about 1795 and several shoemakers were in the family.
!RES:Bernards Twp, Somerset NJ in available records to 1815, when several land
sales made (April 18). Land purchased in Muskingum Co OH 29 Jun 1815 and
included in tax roll 1815. Will made 7 Oct 1816 and proved April 1819.

James BOYLAN

BIOGRAPHY: Source: Book of Boylan's by Burr L. Boylan; page 4 -
History of Aaron Boylan, born 1710, and his descendents with a few notes
taken from History of Somerset County, N. J. Boylans.

BIOGRAPHY: Roger, James and Aaron Boylan were left orphans in Colerain, Ireland.
Roger was made guardian of the two younger boys. James and Aaron became
dissatisfied with this arrangement and came to America. One record says they
came as stow-aways and were sold into service. When Roger learned of their
situation, he made arrangements for their liberation. Later adjustments, or
division of the family property, left the boys in good financial circumstances.

BIOGRAPHY: Just where James and Aaron landed in America, or where they spent the
first few years after arrival, is not known, but they "settled" at Annins
Corners in 1732. Annins Corners was later called Boylan's Corners, and still
later Liberty Corners, which name still holds.

BIOGRAPHY: James Boylan married Mary Annin and had several children according to
William Boylan of Raleigh, No. Carolina, (William was a grandson of Aaron
Boylan). No authentic record of these children has been found, but a number
of Boylan's are mentioned in "The Somerset County Boylan's" record that do not
belong to the recorded descendants of Aaron Boylan, so I have made up a
possible line of descent by using these Boylans and some others obtained from
correspondence as noted later.
