(Son) Census 1790It is not known which of their children were enumerated on the 1790 census in the household of their parents, Joseph and Mary (Bolton) Bolton in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Joseph and Mary would have been married about 17 years in 1790 and at least 8 of their 9 children, five sons and three daughters, had been born by that year. Until we learn more about the years of the deaths of their sons, we cannot determine which of the boys may have been enumerated with the family in 1790. The residents of the household included one male age 16 and over, who would have been father Joseph, only two males under 16 and four females.4

Mother*Elizabeth "Betsy" Dennie1 b. 18 Jun 1769, d. 19 Feb 1846
Almshouse6 July 1797This child's mother, Elizabeth Bolton, was pregnant with her third known illegitimate child when she was admitted to the Almshouse in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, on 6 July 1797.2
Birth*24 January 1798Child Bolton was born on 24 January 1798 in the Almshouse, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.3
Almshouse*4 September 1798 Both mother and child appear to have been discharged as the responsibility of the town of Boston on 4 Sep 1798. It seems unlikely that this child was her daughter Betsey Denny Bolton, who noted as an adult in her family's Bible that she was born or baptized on 17 Dec 1802. It is more probable that this was another illegitimate child of Betsy's and the reason for her former husband's anger and subsequent divorce. Research indicates that John Bolton and Betsy Denny Bolton had no children together and that Betsy had at least three illegitimate children before her marriage and one or two more illegitimate children using the name Bolton after the couple divorced and parted in 1797.4
Almshouse4 September 1798Elizabeth Bolton and her child were re-admitted on the same date of 4 September 1798 to the Almshouse in Boston. Their re-admittance, likely just an administrative change in financial responsibility, noted that they belonged to the town of Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.5
Almshouse22 August 1799The town of Bridgewater was notified on 22 August 1799 by the Almshouse in Boston that the price for Elizabeth Bolton and her child for the period between 22 May 1799 and 22 Aug 1799 was being charged at the rate of $3 per week.6
Almshouse7 September 1799Elizabeth Bolton and her child, belonging to the town of Bridgewater, were discharged on 7 September 1799, one year after their 4 Sep 1798 re-admittance into the Boston Almshouse.5
Almshouse7 September 1799 On 7 September 1799, the town of Bridgewater was billed by the Boston Almshouse for the board and care of Elizabeth Bolton and her child in the amount of $53.28 which was paid by cash on 24 Feb 1800.7
