Perry Commodore Bolsinger was born at the "Old Bolsinger Stand" in New Salem, Fayette County, PA on October 10, 1834. He was the oldest son of William and Sarah Price Bolsinger, and one of a family of nine children, seven boys and two girls.

Perry moved to Johnstown, Cambria County, PA with his parents in 1852. His father had been appointed wood inspector on the Portage Railroad by the State. A year after arriving Perry secured work as a salesman in George Conrad's store, where he remained for several years. He then secured work at Evans & Crotzer Brick Warehouse. Later he engaged in the drug business for himself. From about 1862 to 1892 he was in charge of the grocery, feed and green goods departments of Wood, Morrell & Co. under James McMillen, his brother-in-law, who was general manager of the concern.

On February 24, 1857 Perry and Nancy McMillrn were united in marriage at the home of James McMillen, brother of the bride. The ceremony was performed by the Reverand David Swope, paster of the English Luthern Church. They had eight children, four sons and four daughters.

Perry passed away at his home at 336 Miain street, Johnstown on September 7, 1905 from heart disease. He is buried at the Grandview Cemetery in the Bolsinger family plot along with his parents, Nancy and most of his children.

It was your sworn testimony that allowed your daughters to join the DAR and that led the way for other descendants to do the same. Your family legacy lives on through that action. Thank you. 1st cousin 3 times removed.
