Trail of Tears
between 1830 and 1830 (Age 10 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

John Bole was born in the Newport area on indicated date. He married Susan Savage, daughter of Robert Savage, in the Newport Church of Ireland. Witnesses to the marriage were Robert Savage, Matthew Bole, and Richard Gray. Susan's father is listed as an innkeeper in Achill Sound. Although she may be from the Belmullet area. John Bole is the only one of five sons of David and Margaret Bole to remain in Ireland. It may be correct in assuming that he eventually took over his father's business. It is noted that in the 1857 Griffiths Valuation, John Bole leased a dwelling at #7 Main St., Newport, adjacent to his father's business at #9 Main St. He also leased 4 acres in Newport, 18 acres in Barrackhill, and 1 acre in Kocknageeha. John and Susan may have had only one child, Margaret Jane Bole, born October 31, 1848, in Newport. There has been no evidence uncovered to indicate other children especially in light of Susan Bole's death in 1856 and the absence of any record indicating John remarried. Susan Bole is buried in the Knockkavell Glebe Graveyard in Newport. Her gravestone reads: "Susan Bole John Bole, Newport To the memory of his beloved wife Susan Nee Savage who died 23rd Decr 1856"

  John Bole died in Castlebar and is buried in the new cemetery of the Castlebar Church.  His gravestone was erected by E.C. Shannon, his niece (Eleanor Charlotte Gray, daughter of Richard Gray and Matilda Bole).
