Lemuel and Mary A. Bolles were the parents of one daughter and two sons. These were: Charles E., Delia I., who is now the wife of Hon. Gilbert A. Davis, a leading attorney of Windsor, Vermont, and Esek C., who was born October 4, 1842 [sic], and served from May 24, 1861, to June 18, 1864, in Company K, Thirteenth Illinois Volunteers. He was afterwards employed for a number of years as a conductor on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad, and was accidentally killed while in the service of that corporation, December 6, 1878.
After the death of her first husband, Mrs. Mary A. Bolles was married to George J. Atcherson, and in 1855 the family came to Illinois, locating at Turner (now West Chicago), Du Page County. Mr. Atcherson became a leading citizen of that village, where he did a general business in hides, real estate and loans. He took considerable interest in public affairs, and for a number of years was supervisor of the township. He died January 26, 1884 [sic], and Mrs. Atcherson passed away in the same year. She was very prominent in the work of the Methodist Church at that place, and was held in the highest esteem by all her neighbors. Out of respect to her memory the public schools were closed on the day of her funeral, that being the first instance in which a resident of the village was honored in this manner.
