I've just noticed a 1786 entry in Ford: Broadsides, ballads, &c. printed in Massachusetts 1639-1800 (1922, many copies at archive):

2457. [Cuts.] Tom Bolin: | Together with | Collin and Phebe.
I A Couple of excellent New Songs; with good Tunes. [Printed
and] Sold at the Office Street, next Liberty Pole. 1786.
Cash for Linen Rags. aas


There are also 2 entries for 1800:

3370. [Cut.] Tom Bolin.
Tom Bolin was a Scotchman born,
His shoes worn out, his stockings were torn,
+ AAS. EI

3371. [Cut.] Tom Bolin, | And the Maid of Boston.
Where Charles's tide encircling leaves
The sweets of Boston's fertile shore,
HC


AAS= American Antiquarian Society, Worcester
EI = Essex Institute, Salem
HC = Harvard College

3371 looks like it could be the same as your 1810-14 entry above, but with earlier date.
