Dewitt Clinton Bolon
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb., 1848
Belmont County
Ohio, USA
Death: 1932
Sentinel
Washita County
Oklahoma, USA

Dewitt Clinton Bolon was most likely born in Ohio, but he may have been born in Kansas and lived there only briefly. His family was in Ohio by the 1850 census. Dewitt married Sarah F Cole and they were the parents of Warren Cole, Park, Georgia, and Hile C Bolon.
It was their son, Park Bolon, who built the Bolon Building in Sentinel, which still stands in the center of town. The building anchors a main intersection, and the name BOLON and the date 1908 is prominently displayed on the top pediment.
After his wife's death, he married Eliza J and they had one more daughter, Iva M, in 1894.
Dewitt lived most of his life in Belmont County, Ohio in the area of Barnesville, and only later in life did he move to Oklahoma, likely to be near his son, Park.
