I'm working on the Boulware/Dunn family relationship.

The daughters of William Butler Gray (1622-1673) and Mary Elizabeth Jarrett (1654-1761), were Marjory and Alice Gray. Marjory married James Boulware (1642-1719) and Alice married William Dunn, Sr (1665-1719).

I am trying to find out anything at all about John H Boulware, son of Philip Parr Boulware (1755-1823).

Supposedly, he was born in 1808, in Pendleton, SC, but I've seen a conflicting report, which states that he was born in 1799. Also, his brothers, Daniel and Barnett were born in 1805 and 1810, in Tennessee.

The 1800 and 1810 US Census for Pendleton, South Carolina reveals no Boulware household during that time.
The Boulware family were still residing in Essex County, Virginia; however, Philip Boulware’s wife’s family, Edmondson, did reside in Pendleton, SC at that time.

The following will, confirms that John H Boulware, is the son of Philip Parr Boulware, and the Find a Grave website indicates that he was born in 1798, in Lexington, Fayette County Kentucky.

Last Will and Testament of Philip Parr Boulware

But, during those census years, 1800-1820, there were absolutely no Boulware households found in Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, nor in Missouri, and by all appearances, they were, either on the move during the census years, or residing in someone else's household.

There was a Thomas Boulware household in 1810, in Clark Co, Kentucky, which
consisted of:
3 males under 10 b 1800-1810 Daniel, Barnett, Philip III
1 male 10-15 b 1795-1800 George W
1 male 26-44 b 1766-1784 Thomas b 1790 ??
1 female under 10 b 1800-1810 ?
3 females 16-25 b 1785-1794 Mary?, Lucindie?, Ursula?

This Thomas Boulware household does not appear on any 1820 census, presumably because he had died, in 1812, and on the 1820 census for Kentucky, there was only 1 Boulware household, in Woodford, KY; the household of
Ramsey Boulware, although it had absolutely nothing in common with the 1810 Thomas Boulware household.

The first 4 results of this search reveal that John Boulware resided in Madison, Kentucky, from early 1800.

and the 5th result approximates his year of birth as 1800, and place of birth, as Kentucky.

There was another John Boulware household in Franklin, Kentucky, in 1810, but it was not the same John.

Supposedly, Philip Parr and wife, Elizabeth Edmondson, were living in Gasconade County, Missouri, in Aug, 1819, when Philip ran an ad in Newport, Missouri. Phillip was a land commissioner in June 2, 1820, in Franklin County, MO. and he and his wife both died in 1823, and they don't show up on any census, at anytime, nor anywhere.

It wasn't until the 1830 census, that Philip Parr Jr shows up as the first Boulware family listed in Illinois. In 1835, John Boulware became the first Boulware household in Indiana. (Troy, Perry County)

This is the very same John Boulware household that previously resided in Madison, Kentucky.

and if you'll notice, there was a male child, named John Howard, who I believe would be John H Boulware, Jr.
I also believe that the 2 Dunn children on this 1850 Census, were my relatives.
