Your post is very informative. We are researching this family as just behind our garage lies the Bollea cemetery (a neighborhood cemetery formerly named the Fowler Cemetery and the Tenney Cemetery). My son, as part of a high school research project, is researching both the history of the neighborhood cemetery and also the geneaology of two of the families represented there (Bollea and Runnals).

Interestingly, we have discovered that Hulk Hogan is a Bollea grandson (I beleve son of Peter and Ruth, Tampa)! One of the Bollea children, Catherine, just recently passed away and was buried in the cemetery.

Thank you for the helpful post-
