He had a respectable rank as a scholar, and took a lively interest and prominent part in all that concerned the class. After graduation, he read law a while in the office of John C. Spencer, Esq., Canandaigua, N.Y. He was admitted to the bar at Cleveland, Ohio, in September, 1835. After a business connection of about a year with James L. Conger, Esq., he sent for his classmate and friend, Moses Kelly, and the two formed a partnership in the autumn of 1836, which lasted till 1856, when Mr. Bolton was elected one of the judges of the Court of Common Pleas. This office he held for ten years. After his retirement from the bench in 1866, he devoted himself to the care of a large property. He died suddenly, 1 February, 1871, of neuralgia of the heart. Judge Bolton was twice married. His first wife, whom he married 7 September, 1837, was Elizabeth L. Cone, who died 26 January, 1846. By her he had five children: Festus Cone, born 7 June, 1838, died 8 February, 1839; Thomas Kelly, born 25 March, 1840 (H.C. 1861); Festus Cone, born 12 January, 1844; James Henry, born 20 January, 1846, graduated at Western Reserve, 1866, LL.B. at Harvard, 1869.

Judge Bolton was a man of great energy and force of character, peremptory and decisive both at the bar and on the bench, social and companionable with his friends, by whom he was much beloved, but with a certain sternness of manner in the common intercourse of life, which prevented him from being generally popular. The resolutions adopted by the Cleveland bar after his death, and the speeches made on that occasion, showed the strong sense which was felt of his ability and worth.
