Birth: Jul. 24, 1884
Jefferson County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Sep. 19, 1981
Volusia County
Florida, USA

Frieda Marie Bolling was born July 24, 1884, in Louisville, Ky. After the death of her father in 1889, she moved with her mother and a brother to Apopka, Florida. On July 29, 1903, she married Levi Daniel Eiland at the home of her mother in Apopka. Her husband, Dan was the first postmaster of what would become the town of Elfers, Florida established on Dec. 14, 1909. His wife, Frieda chose the name Elfers because it was her mother's maiden name. Other residents entered names but when the day came for a name to be picked from the box it was Frieda's that happened to get drawn. Frieda and Levi "Dan" Daniel Eiland had the following children: Ruby, who was in the first graduating class of Gulf High School in 1924 and subsequently taught at the Seven Springs school - Frederick "Fred" Daniel, a member of the GHS Class of 1928, m. Metta Hamilton (GHS '29). They later lived in Jacksonville - Dorothy at the young age of 7 passed away due to an illness they believe she got from drinking bad water. Frieda and all the children got sick but Dan never did. That may have been because he only drank coffee and therefore the water was always boiled before he drank it which would have killed the germ that caused the rest of the family to get sick. For this reason Dan was able to take care for his wife and children throughout their illness but Dorothy never recovered and died in 1921. Her parents and siblings were heartbroken and all carried the pain of losing her with them for the rest of their lives - Elizabeth "Beth" Lee - Archie Gilford living in Inglis in 2006 - Marvin Jones, born at their Seven Springs home on April 20, 1922. Rev. Marvin Jones Eiland became pastor of Curlew Baptist Church. In 2006, Rev Marvin and his wife were living at Inglis.
