John and Alice Boulton family 1890

John and Alice Boulton Family

The photo below is the siblings of Randy's Great Grandfather, Benjamin Boulton.  It was found online at a Family Tree Genealogy Website belonging to a great grandson of Susan Henrietta Healey, Harold Johnson of Tennesee.  Harold spells the surname without the "u" so I will do the same since I am using his photo.  The website was created online in 2003 and I was so pleased to find it!

Back row Susan Henrietta Bolton (later Healey), Henry Bolton, Sarah Bolton

These are the six youngest siblings of Benjamin.  He had two other older sisters Margaret and Martha .  Martha died young in 1873 and since Benjamin had gone to Manitoba in 1892 and he wasn't in the photo this helps date the picture.  Their mother Alice died in 1886 but their father John lived to the age of 95, dying in 1902. They are buried in the New Dublin Cemetery in Leeds County, Ontario. 

The same website has the above picture of Susan Bolton Healey's family with this caption:  My Great Grandparents James (b.1843, Westmeath, Ireland) & Susan (b. 1846, Ont., Canada) in the center surrounded by their children, CW, starting in upper left corner; Carrie Ellen (my Grandmother), Martha Effie, Henry Alexander,Alice Jane, Thomas Edward, Francis Benjamin, Susan Henrietta, Frederick Eugene, Ethel Maude,William John, & Margaret Edith
Twelve children - wow!  I can only imagine how many extended members of this family there must be now!
