Biographical Sketch of Samuel P. Bolling

This brief biographical sketch of Samuel P. Bolling published in Luther Porter Jackson's Negro Office-Holders in Virginia, 1865–1895 (1945) decribes Bolling as a farmer, bricklayer, brick manufacturer, politican, and savvy businessman. "Bolling could barely write, but he could sign his name well enough for the banks to recognize it," Jackson noted.
