I think there are two Nathan Bullards born at about the same time one was born
in Tenn(I think) the other Nathan Bullard(ours) was born in Wayne Co..... ILL.
If I am wrong please feel free to correct my. But I did find a Nathan Bullard
on a Tennessee Census living next door to a James McAdams(same name as my
ggrandfather) This was to early to be my James McAdams but I did think it
After I found that, I had always wondered if there was a connection between
the McAdams and Bullards especially since they all lived in Springtown(Parker
Co.) Texas and my James Polk's McAdams mother Mrs. Mary McAdams Hays is buried
in the Bullard Cemetery. But the people in that county say that all these
people buried in the Bullard cemetery are related.
Carole and I have been able to put several of these people together through
marriage and what not. You all probably are more knowledge able than I.
Take Care Cousins
I was just reading your post and you state that Nathan b. 1822 in IL. I
have checked the Wayne County, IL census for 1820 thru 1900. Nathan, son of
Wright Jr. is listed in 1850 census and lists his birth state as TN and age
28. Wife Matilda is listed as age 25 and born in KY. Children are are all
born in IL and are Polly age 8, Wright age 5, Wm. age 3, and Melinda age 2.
Wayne County History states that Nathan in the 1850s was a blacksmith in
Johnsonville, IL. Johnsonville Cemetary has a headstone marked, "Melsena
Bullard, dau of N. & M. Bullard, d. Mar 31, 1858, age 2y 22d". History states
that Nathan and his family left by wagon for Texas in 1859. Thought you might
like this bit of Illinois History relating to Nathan. Johnsonville is one and
one fourth mile south of g-grandfather Lorenzo Dow Bullard's farm which is
still in the Bullard family owned by a cousin of mine.
I am so glad that I have all of ya'll, because to be honest with you I have
done more research on the McAdams line and not the Bullard line. I just
became interested after I found your queries. Thank you Spence, I ran off
what you sent me.
I will go to the Library and check out stuff one of these days. You know more
about the Bullards than I do. I just knew what Pappy told me. I also knew
where they were buried because I have been to their graves lots of times. Did
you know that Nathan was a Mason? He has a Mason tombstone on his grave. Was
Wright Bullard or any of the other Bullards Masons?
Has anyone any idea where Nathan was in 1960 census? Since Pappy told my he
was shot in KY and his wife was from Ky. has any one checked that state? I
may need to do that. Does anyone know what county in KY that the Camp's lived?
I was just wondering why he went to Ky. in the first place.
- Hello! This is the 2nd time I've tried to post this message. When I
clicked on preview I lost the original. So here it goes again.
Sorry, I posted to this site before formally introducing myself.
My name is Roberta "Bobbi" Butz Leamon. My connection to the Bullard
family is as follows (as I believe it to be):
Wright Bullad, b. Bef. 1795 in Ireland
Wright Bullard, Jr., b. Bef. 1815 in Ireland? or NH?, m. Elizabeth?
Ephram Willard Bullard, b. 1835, m. Linda Eliva Austin
Andrew Jackson Bullard, b. Aug. 12, 1867, m. Minnie Cozart
Jackie Jewell Bullard, b. Feb. 10, 1903, m. Clarence Otto
Norma LaVonne Bassett, m. Robert Butz
I have an old photograph that was found in my Grandma Jackie's
effects that I will try to scan and post. I believe it is either
Ephram Willard Bullard and Linda Eliva Austin Bullard; or Andrew
Jackson Bullard and Minnie Cozart Bullard. My grandmother was raised
by her grandparents after the death of her father. It would be
wonderful if someone could identify who they are.
