While preparing a pamphlet on the Statham City Cemetery in Statham, Georgia, I've allowed myself to go off on a tangent from time to time. In this case, interred in the cemetery was Mattie Owings Boland and two Boland infants with no given names, but identified as the son and daughter of Dr. S.A. & Mattie Boland. A little searching on the Internet gave me a bit more information.
Descendants of Hamilton F. Boland
1. Hamilton F. Boland was born on 11/24/1829 in South Carolina. He died on 12/03/1903 in South Carolina.
Family Tree for Boland, Goins, Hamer, Cummings, Barnes, Strange, Crouch, Fussell, Goodson,and Lokey has an extensive genealogy of Bolands, as does Descendants of Johann Heinrich Bohland, but both appear to conflict with another genealogy that has Hamilton born in Gwinnett County, Georgia. I’ve chosen to go with the first.
Hamilton married Matilda Neely . Matilda was born on 05/05/1834 in South Carolina. She died on 05/01/1910 in South Carolina.
They had the following children:
2 F i. Susan A. Boland was born in <1860> in South Carolina.

Mattie died 13 Jun 1813, same day as her son - most likely in childbirth

NOTE: For anyone reading this who knows Statham, the house that Dr Boland built is really just around the corner from the cemetery, now owned by Perry & Beth Barton.
