at , Capt. David Boal of Pfontz Valley, Perry

County, Pa. (born 1739, died Aug. 11, 1814 in the 75th year of his age;
buried near Thompsontown, Pa). That it is unsafe to depend upon the
spelling of family names, and especially that of the Boal family, is shown
by the following item on page 784 of the "History of Juniata and Susque-
hanna Valle3-s in Pennsylvania," referring to Beale Township, "David
Bowel warranted sixty-seven acres Alar. 2;^, 1767, now owned by James
Beale. The names David and Thomas Bowel (the latter having land near
the old forge) may be supposed to be varied spellings for Beale; but they
belonged to a family after whom Boalsburg, Pa., was named." On Nov.
5, 1795, Nathaniel Dickey conveyed a tract of 239 acres in Fayette Town-
ship, Juniata County, Pa. to "David Bole of Pfoutz Valley (now Perry
County) ; Thomas Bole, son of David settled upon the place and upon
the death of his father in 1824 he inherited it and in 1840 sold it to
William McMeen." This tract was near the site of McAlisterville. In
1797 "JMajor Hugh McAlister and David Boles each donated a plot of
ground on their farms adjoining" for the Lost Creek Presbyterian
Church — "History of Juniata and Susquehanna Valleys," pp. 809, 834, 838,
and 840. David Bole (spelled also "Bowel" in public documents) was
appointed one of the trustees to organize Mifillin County in 1789, but he
declined to serve because he resided below the Narrows in Greenwood
Township, then Cumberland, now Perry County, and hence did "not
reside within the limits of the said Mifflin." Pfoutz Valley, the home of
the husband of Susanna Thomson was in Greenwood Township, which
is now partly in Perry and partly in Juniata County, Pa. in both of
which are to be found descendants of David and Susanna (Thomson)
Boal. David Boal served in the Revolutionary War under Colonel Purdy
of Cumberland County, as a private in 1776 and as a captain in 1780. His
company of Cumberland County Militia was reported in service with him
as captain from June 22 to Aug. 22, 1782. In 1787 he was appointed
one of the executors of the will of his brother-in-law (7) Robert Thomp-
son of what was then Fermanaugh Town.ship, Cumberland County, Pa.
