(Debtor) Final Accounting2 April 1833The estate of Abiezer Alger Esq. was listed as having paid $10.00 to the estate of John Bolton on the second and possibly final Bolton Inventory and Expenses dated 2 April 1833. The accounting was submitted by Administrator Jonas Hartwell and filed with Probate Justice Wilkes Wood in East Bridgewater. New items totaling $162.14 had been added to the $239.89 value of the initial inventory making the total value of his estate $402.03 before expenses. $150.00 and $10.00 had been received from the estates of Nathan Alger and Abiezer Alger Esq. respectively, interest received totaled $2.00 and there was $.14 cash in hand. The Administrator requested and received allowance in the amount of $137.72 for the following estate expenses: $5.16 in funeral charges, $34.50 for the deceased's last sickness, $20.11 paid to Dr. Caleb Swan, $6.47 paid to Dr. Noah Whitman, $1.70 in expenses for appraising the estate, $12.28 lost in the sale of the personal estate, $1.00 paid to Charles Hayden, $15.00 for a pair of gravestones and $41.50 for settling the estate.

(Neighbor) Land RecordsAn undated land transaction recorded in the original purchase record books of Bridgewater stated that John Bolton had purchased two fifty acre lots from Samuel Wadsworth of Duxbury. The lots were described as lying on each side of the land of Israel Alger.4
Land Records*20 May 1701From an undated land transaction recorded in the original purchase record books of Bridgewater, we learned that sometime after John Bolton's purchase of land from Samuel Wadsworth, a difference of opinion developed between Bolton and his neighbor, Israel Alger, regarding the bounds and range between them on the westward side line, there being no certain bounds there to be found. They reached an agreement to divide and set bounds between them by measure. John Bolton agreed to allow Israel Alger, for the breadth of his 50 acres, 58 rods in breadth throughout the length from the bounds of Bolton's lowermost 50 acre lot, it being measured and bounded out. The northernmost corner tree of Bolton's lowermost 50 acres being a great black oak marked on 4 sides and running southwesterly to the river in a straight line to a great walnut tree marked on 4 sides, there being several trees marked in this line between them, and measuring 58 rods from that black oak across to Israel Alger's 50 acres, to a stake and stones running southwesterly to another stake and stones and so in a straight line to the river to another stake and stones and from there running straight to Alger's land exactly 58 rods to a walnut tree marked on 2 sides, a range tree between them. The agreement was made and perfected on 20 May 1701 in the presence and by the hand of Samuel Allen and Comfort Willis. A note, which appeared to this researcher to have been added later, stated that errors in measuring by the "box rule" needed to be rectified.4
Land Records22 December 1702Using the box rule measure as agreed, John Bolton found an error in the bounds between his house in Bridgewater and the house of his neighbor Israel Alger. Bolton procured a committee, chosen by the Purchasers of Bridgewater to end such differences, consisting of Josiah Edson, Samuel Allen Sr. and Edward Fobes. On 22 December 1702, the committee measured the land by the box rule measure and set up bounds between the neighbors. At the northeasterly end was a black oak marked on four sides, and about in the middle of the length, a stake and stones, and at the southwesterly end, near the river, a stake and stones. Israel Alger had already cleared about one acre of swamp woods that was going to fall within John Bolton's land, so the committee agreed that Israel Alger should have the grass on it for four years more from the above date.5
