Obituary for Thomas Boling son of Thomas Boling and Elizabeth Gay.

John, Thomas and Mary Bolling children of Thomas and Elizabeth Gay, were all deaf mutes, and were educated in Edinburgh Scotland, by Dr. Thomas Braidwood. A celebrated deaf mutes preceptor. They were sent to his care in 1775 and remained with him until the end of the Revolutionary War. Judge Robertson wrote an obituary of Thomas Bolling in the Richmond Enquirer. Thomas wrote in a peculiar graphic style and obtained an artificial faculty of speech, almost natural. His grace of manners vivacity and power of imitation, made him the wonder and admiration of strangers and the delight of his friends. He died at Gaymont, Caroline County, in the seventy sixth year of his age. His father Major Thomas Bolling, in 1812 established at "Cobbs" on the Appomattox River, the first institution for teaching deaf mutes in this country. It's first superintendent was John Braidwood, the son of Thomas Braidwood, who trained his son Thomas Bolling so successfully.
