I'm searching for members of the BOLDEN FAMILY of Washington, DC. We are of African-American descent. My father, EARL STANLEY BOLDEN, JR. (b. 1919), was the son of EARL STANLEY BOLDEN, SR. (b. Aug. 1899) in DC. His wife's name was BEULAH STROTHER (b. 1903) of Abbeville, SC. My great-grandfather was ROBERT CARTER BOLDEN (b. March 1877 in DC). His wife was JENNIE BOLDEN (b. 1878 in DC). They also had a daughter named LOUISE, who married a THOMAS KEYES of DC. Robert Carter's father was ROBERT BOLDEN (b. 1844 in Virginia) and married to SELINA CARTER BOLDEN (b. 1848 in Virginia). Robert Carter, Robert, and Jennie are listed as "MULATTO" in the census. At one time, they all lived at 1549 4th St. NW. Robert Carter divorced Jennie around 1920 and moved in with his brother ALBERT ERVIN BOLDEN (b. 3/26/1885) at 1335 9th St. NW. Another brother, ARTHUR BOLDEN (b. 1869), lived with his family at 1515 4th St. NW. Arthur was married to LOLA and their children, as of the 1920 Census, were: BESSIE (b. 1905), ARTHUR, JR. (b. 1914), and ELIZABETH V. (b. 1916).
My father, now 90, was estranged from both sides of his family while still a young child. He has 6 living children, 14 grandchildren, and a few great-grands (they keep coming!!) We are all interested in finding any cousins, even many times removed! We would appreciate any information that you may have to share. Thanks!
