Hi All; October 21, 2008
This is an update to the BULLARD Y-DNA PROJECT that I and two distant cousins undertook last summer. At the time we appealed to all male Bullard/Ballard/etc surname Families with roots in The Carolinas and Virginia to join us with the goal of identifying likely connections to several lines of BULLARD FAMILIES. We have experienced some unexpected success. The invitation for others to join the project is always open.
The Family Tree DNA analysis of 37 markers from cheek swabs from each of us produced identical results for 36 of the 37 markers and only differed by 1 for Richard Bullard on the 33rd marker. Richard had a value of 17 where Bill and I had 16.
The following Table developed by Bruce Walsh, Ph.D., noted population geneticist from the University of Arizona , was provided us with our test results.
50 % probability that the MRCA lived no longer ago than this number of generations
90 % probability that the MRCA lived no longer ago than this number of generations
95 % probability that the MRCA lived no longer ago than this number of generations
37 of 37
36 of 37
35 of 37
Those tested so far are:
William Richard Bullard known as Richard Home: Stuttgart , AR ……….likely 6 gen to MRCA
Claudie B. Bullard known as Bill Home North Richland Hills, TX…… 5 gen to MRCA
Spencer Ardell Bullard known as Spence Home: Lakewood , CO … ..4 gen to MRCA
We believe based on the results of the test that our MRCA (most recent common ancestor) is Nathan Bullard b. abt. 1765 in Duplin County, NC, son of William Bullard b. abt 1725 and whose genealogy has been document in the book, “William and Nathan Bullard Family History and Genealogy”, by Spencer Ardell Bullard, published in Lakewood, CO in 2004.
We are currently researching with Richard to find the probable connection to the Nathan and Sarah (Stroud) Bullard Family. This Family had 8 sons and 3 daughters. The daughter names are unknown. The sons were:
Wright b. 1797 in Duplin County , NC ;
William4 b. abt 1800 in Anson County , NC ;
Nathan2 b. in Chesterfield County , SC ;
twins Asa and Elijah b. 1806 in Chesterfield County , SC ;
John b. 1810 in Chesterfield County , SC ;
Stroud b. 1814 in NC;
And Lorenzo Dow b. in 1816 in TN.
We believe we have found the link between second son Williamr4 and Richard’s Family line. Bill’s Family line is through sixth son John. Spence’s Family line is through eighth son Lorenzo Dow.
Time and place considerations lead us to suspect a connection to the second son, William4 Bullard, whom we believe was born abt. 1800 in Anson County, NC. This William4 Bullard family is identified as the William Bullard family found on page 9 of the Henderson County, TN census of 1830. The census shows the family with 1 male and 1 female in age group 20 to 30; 2 males age 5 to 10; and 1 male and 2 females age 0 to5. (Note: these children were born between 1820-1830) The only name is in the census is William as head of household. The two Nathan Bullard Families found in that census with William were believed to be his father, Nathan1 and his brother named Nathan2 Bullard.
This William4 Bullard family was not found in any subsequent census and therefore not further documented in my book.
Richard has traced his ancestors back to about 1848 when his great grandfather John Hilder Bullard was born in Tishomingo County in the very NE corner of Mississippi . This is about 50 to 60 miles south of Henderson County , TN where in 1830 census William4 Bullard Family along with his brother Nathan2 and their parents Nathan1 and Sarah (Stroud) Bullard are found.
Richard’s gg-grandfather has been identified as Hilder Green Bullard born in NC in 1828. This information is not well documented and is likely family hearsay. Earlier generations are also not well documented but identify a John Bullard b. 1792 in Sumter County , SC as father of Hilder Green Bullard.
The following is excerpted from the first 3 generations of Richard’s Family Genealogy

That's not good sending spam with links in it. It's easy to get a virus
