This is the daughter of Justice and Hannah Reed Bowling.

Elder Jesse was also the firs Magistrate (Judge) of Perry County, Kentucky. The area that Elder Jesse Bolling lived was called Bowlingtown, named after Elder Jesse Bolling who was Minister of the Primitive Baptist Church. Bowlingtown was torn down in the 1960's by the Government to put a lake, picnic area, etc. They moved almost 900 graves to a new cemetery to make room for the Lodge, Picnic area, etc. It was devastating for the people who lived there for so many generations.
