From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:
John Quincy Adams Bolster was born 22 November 1825 at Rumford, Maine, son and third child of Aroostook War General Alvan Bolster and Cynthia (Wheeler) Bolster. According to a Bolster family Bible, John married Mary Anna Bartlett of Blue Hill in 1850. They married in Boston, Massachusetts. John worked as a teamster.
The couple lived in Maine and in Charlestown, Massachusetts; by 1900, they had moved to Melrose, Massachusetts. John died in 1922; Mary Anna died before the enumeration of the 1900 Census, in which John described himself as widowed.
