- Apr 18, 2010Bellefonte is in Township 4 Range 6. William Gullatt own several parcels of land in Township 4 Range 6 and additional parcels of land in other TS & R's. He also owned lots in the town of Bellefonte. He patented over 1000 acres in Jackson County.
Minerva died sometime between the 1880 Census and William's death in Dec 1893, she is not mentioned in the settlement of his estate by James M. Gullatt, his estate was estimated to be less that two hundred dollars. He was living with James M. on Sand Mountain just north of Dutton when he died.
From the relatives living around them on the 1860/1870/1880 census, Gants, Pegues, Thompsons and John D. Allen Jr listed as next to them, I am sure they were still living in the Bellefonte area in 1880.
Most of the Gullatt's and their relatives back then were either burried in the Hurt Cemetery north west of Hollywood or the Gant Cemetery at Bellefonte, some may have been buried in the Old Bellefonte Cemetery. William may have been buried on Sand Mountain at Pleasant Hill Church Cemetery where James M. and Malissa P. Gullatt are buried. I have a brother that is also buried there.
Bellefonte slowly died after the railroad was placed to the west of it and Bellefonte Station (present day Hollywood) grew.
I will scan an email you a copy of TS4 R5 that shows Bellefonte and Hollywood.

The 1860 census of Jackson County shows my g-g-grandmother, Minerva Geron lived in Township 4, Range 6 and the 1870 census shows living at Bellefonte Beat 10 with her husband William Gullatt. Do maps exist showing these exact locations?
