Trail of Tears
between 1830 and 1830 (Age 43 years)
Note: The Trail of Tears is a name given to the ethnic cleansing and forced relocation of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The removal included many members of the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations, among others in the United States, from their homelands to Indian Territory in eastern sections of the present-day state of Oklahoma. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. In 1831 the Choctaw were the first to be removed, and they became the model for all other removals. After the Choctaw, the Seminole were removed in 1832, the Creek in 1834, then the Chickasaw in 1837, and finally the Cherokee in 1838. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trail_of_Tears

Note

David Bole was born in the area of Newport, County Mayo.

David married Margaret Gray about 1818 in County Mayo, probably Newport. All availble records refer to David Bole as a shopkeeper in Newport. The 1846 Slater directory of Newport lists David Bole as a leather dealer and iron monger. The Griffiths Valuation conducted in 1857 in Newport indicates that he is the leasee of a dwelling at #9 Main St., Newport. David Bole died on July 29, 1870 at 83 years old. His wife, Margaret Gray, died on June 24, 1874. They are possibly buried in the Knockkavell Glebe Graveyard where the gravestone of his daughter-in-law, Susan Bole, was recently discovered by the Newport Historical Society.
