David H Bollinger and his wife Annette E. are buried in the Marlow Community Cemetery, Milam County, Texas. This cemetery has been neatly transcribed and alphabetized by Perry C. Holder in 150 Years of Cemetery Records (Houston, TX: D. Armstrong, c1991), pp 245-247. Four others by the name are in the grouping include one Pete Bollinger (1791-1879) who one would be tempted to link to David H. David, however, is the son of Joseph and Carmina Bollinger (1880 census of Milam County, Texas, p. 221, dwelling #322. No link has been found between Joseph and Pete Bollinger.
