My Dad was born at Van TX, but as far as I know, the Bullards you are
talking about are not related to his Bullards. His father, aunts, and
uncles were all born in Wood Co, Smith Co, Van Zandt Co, and Rains
Co--and maybe Hunt Co. I can't remember what time period you are looking
at, but one of Dad's uncles did have a son named Clyde Bullard. I'm
pretty sure he isn't the Clyde you mentioned, because I think he was born
in Texas in the 1930s, not in AL. I do have some photos of all of them
at a Bullard family reunion--probably in or near Van--around 1951-1952.
I wondered about the Bullard TX connection several years ago. Since the
post office at Hewsville was re-named Bullard in 1883 (after the
postmaster who arrived there in 1870), I guess it is possible that the
John H. Bullard was a descendent of one of Nathan and Susan Bullard's
oldest sons. I don't have a list of the sons' children, though. I just
remember that I came away pretty sure that the Bullard TX Bullards had
nothing to do with our Bullards.
