You still did not give me any locations in PA. I found two Patrick Bolands in PA in 1850 census, and they were married and still in PA in 1860. Both were born in Ireland and both had wife, Mary, also born in Maryland.
You say John Patrick Boland was born in 1940, then you say John Patrick Boland died in 1909. I need clarification on this. Where did he die? Where was John Patrick Boland born in 1940? The 1930 census is the last one open to the public.
Where was your grandfather, John Patrick Boland, in 1900 census, in PA, then what county? What are some sibling's names? I need more information to try to determine which one from 1860 is your line.
