Marriage Intention17 July 1760An intention of marriage for Thankful Borden of Freetown and Jonathan Bolton of Dartmouth was recorded on 17 July 1760 in Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2
Marriage*10 September 1760She married Jonathan Bolton, son of Jonathan Sprague Jr. and Susanna Bolton, on 10 September 1760 in Tiverton, Newport County, Rhode Island. The record indicated that both were of Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts, although their intention noted that Thankful was of Freetown. They were married by Samuel Hicks, Justice.1
Census 1790*1790Thankful Bolton was likely enumerated on the 1790 census in the household of her husband Jonathan Bolton in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The household consisted of 3 males aged 16 and over, 2 males under the age of 16 and 1 female. Son John had his own household on neighboring land in 1790, so it is suspected that Jonathan and his sons David and Thomas were the 3 older males, that their wife and mother Thankful was the female and that the 2 younger males were as yet unidentified children of the couple.3,4
Census 1800*1800Thankful Bolton was likely enumerated on the 1800 census in the household of her husband Jonathan Bolton in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The household had 1 male aged 10 thru 15, 1 male aged 45 and over and 1 female aged 45 and over. Jonathan and Thankful's son John was enumerated with his growing family at a neighboring farm.5

The deed was recorded a year after it was signed, on 26 Mar 1807, and identified the tract or parcel of land, situated in Freetown, as part of Jonathan's homestead farm containing by estimation ten acres, "be it the same more or less", and was described as follows: Beginning at a Maple tree standing by the side of the Mill River, thence running as the river runs until it comes to the Abram Ashley land, thence Westerly along the Ashley line until it comes to a spring brook, thence Northerly along the brook until it comes to Joshua Crapo's land, thence Southerly along the Crapo line until it comes to the southeast corner of Joshua Crapo's land, thence Southerly, in or about the same direction, to the Maple tree first mentioned.

The deed was dated and signed on 31 October 1806, and recorded on 1 Nov 1806. It described the tract or parcel of land situated in Freetown, bounded as follows: Containing twenty-six acres ___________ and bounded Northerly by land belonging to Augustus Chase, Easterly and Southerly by Calvin Reynolds' land, Westerly by Peregrine White's land and is the one-half of that lot of land, taken off at the North end, which he, Jonathan Bolton, and his son, John Bolton, bought from Bethuel Borden. It was signed with the marks of Jonathan Bolton and Thankful Bolton, with Thomas Bolton and David Bolton as witnesses.7
Land Transfer26 March 1807Her husband, Jonathan Bolton, a yeoman of Freetown, signed a deed agreement which was recorded on 26 March 1807 to sell land in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts, to Benjamin Crapo and Thomas White, yeomen of Freetown and Dartmouth, respectively, for the sum of $150.

Jonathan Bolton signed with his mark, with (Malaeths____or____Merchant??) White and Thomas Bolton as witnesses.8
(Wife) Deathbefore 1810Her husband, Jonathan Bolton, may have died before 1810 when Thankful was enumerated on the 1810 Census as Head of Household and the only other member of her household was a male too young to have been Jonathan.9
Census 1810*1810Thankful Bolton appeared as "Thanke Botton" on the 1810 census as the Head of Household in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts. Her household consisted of 1 male aged 26 thru 44 and 1 female ages 45 and over.9

James Botkin1

(Party to Bond) EstateAugust 1828James was among those relatives, friends and neighbors who purchased items from the estate of Jacob Kensler of Madison County, Illinois, in August 1828.1
(Party to Bond) Probate28 July 1832Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham were appointed Administratrix and Administrator for the probate of the estate of Jacob Kensler on 28 July 1832 in Madison County, Illinois.

David Prickett, Judge of Probate for Madison County, Illinois, wrote that whereas Jacob Kensler died intestate on or about the 3rd day of July AD 1832 having at his decease personal property in Illinois which may be lost, destroyed or diminished if speedy care be not taken of the same to the end therefore that the said property may be collected and preserved for those who shall appear to have a legal right or interest therein. He then appointed Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham Administratrix and Administrator of all and singular the goods and chattels, rights and credits, which were of the said Jacob Kensler at the time of his decease with full power and authority to secure and collect the said property and debts wheresoever the same may be found in Illinois and in general to do and perform all other acts which now are or hereafter may be required of them by law.

James Botkin, after being duly sworn and deposed that same day, testified that the personal estate of which Jacob Kensler died possessed did not exceed in value the sum of $600, to the best of his knowledge and belief.

Also on 28 July 1832, Mary Kensler, James Botkin, John Heaton and Thomas Gillham agreed to be held and firmly bound unto the people of the state of Illinois in the penal sum of $1,200 current money of the United States which payment, well and truly to be made and performed, they and each of them did bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, jointly, severally and firmly. The judge went on to write that the condition of the above obligation was such that if the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham, Administratrix and Administrator of all and singular the good and chattels, rights and credits of Jacob Kensler, deceased, do make or cause to be made a true and perfect inventory of all and singular the goods and chattels of the said deceased which have or shall come to the hands, possession or knowledge of them, the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham as such Administratrix and Administrator, or to the hands of any person or persons for them. And the same so made, did exhibit or cause to be exhibited in the court of Probate for the said county of Madison, agreeably to law, and such goods and chattels, rights and credits, to well and truly administer according to law and all of the rest of the said goods and chattels, rights and credits which shall be found remaining upon the account of the said Administratrix and Administrator, the same being first examined and allowed by the Court of Probate, shall deliver and pay unto such person or persons respectively, as may be legally entitled thereto and further to make a just and true account of all their actings and doings therein when thereunto required by said court. And if it shall hereafter appear that any last will and testament was made by the deceased and the same be proved in court, and letters testamentary or of administration be obtained thereon, and the said Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham to, in such case on being required thereto, render and deliver up the letters of administration granted to them as aforesaid and shall in the general do and perform all other acts which may at any time be required of them by law, then this obligation to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and virtue. The document was signed and sealed by Mary Kensler who made her mark, Thomas Gillham, James Botkin and John Heaton.

In a third document, also dated July 28, 1832 and signed by Mary Kensler and Thomas Gillham, they solemnly swore they would well and truly administer all and singular the goods and chattels, rights, credits and effects of Jacob Kessler, deceased, and pay all just claims and charges against his estate so far as his goods, chattels and effects shall extend and the law charge them, and that they would do and perform all other acts required of them by law to the best of their knowledge and abilities.2,3,4
