Elizabeth Ann Nichols Bolin was sister to our third great-grandmother Tibitha Nichols Ricketts. Some of the Floods\Fluds married into the Bolin families.
Have several photos of the Bolin folks in my 'Kinfolks Memory Album' located on my website.
I believe Colonel Felps Bolin was the son of Calvin Bolin and Elizabeth Ann Nichols Bolin. Elizabeth's husband Henry died early in the Civil War (ca 1863), killed by bushwackers near the Atkinson School.
Colonel Felps Bolin (listed as Calvin age 2), was living with Calvin Bolin on the 1870 Newton County, Arkansas Census, White Township, Visit 629.
Calvin Bolin was also in Franklin County, Arkansas in 1876.
Calvin married ELIZABETH CAMPBELL,age 35, on 25 Feb 1876 (B-219) in Franklin County,Arkansas

See the "Henry Bolin Story" in my 'Kinfolks Stories' on my website.
I believe Henry and Elizabeth Ann "Betsy" Nichols Bolin were the parents of:
(1) John E. Bolin, born 1850 in Missouri. He married four times:
l. Nancy Flud (daughter of John L & Miranda Gilmore Flud) on 7 May 1870.

They moved to Eufaula, Oklahoma and had two daughters,Adlee and
