Generation No. 1

1. John1 Bull was born Abt. 1645 in England, and died 1699 in Salem, New Jersey. He married Anne.

Notes for John Bull:
The name Bull was given by a King of England to a man for bravery in conquering a bull with bare hands, after seeing another fail.

John Bull is the name used for England and the English people, just as Uncle Sam stands for the United States and its people. The nickname John Bull wasa used in the 1600's. But John Arbuthnot, a Scottish writer, fixed the popular idea of John Bull. In 1712 Arbuthnot published pamplets advocating the end of the Spanish succession. They were re-published the same year as "The History of John Bull". In this book John Bull represnting England, appears as a jolly, honest, plain-dealing, but hot tempered farmer. Sir John Tenniel, farmer's cartoonist of Punch magazine in the 1800's pictured John Bull as a dignified gentleman. The John Bull commonly seen today appeared in the drawings of Sir Francis Carruthers Gould, published in the Westminster Gazette during the late 1800's and early 1900's. Gould pictured John Bull wearing a 'tile' hat and a swallow-tailed coat. His trousers are tucked into riding boots, and the British flag sometimes appears on his waistcoat. There was another John Bull in the late 1500's and early 1600's who was an accomplished musician and composer in England. He was hailed on the Continent for his musical accomplishments, and was appointed musician to the King's Court. Little of his works remain however, except in manuscripts in England.

Then, according to tradition, another John Bull ina group of seven brothers sailed from England in the early 1600's, to make their way in the new promised land of America. The accomplishments of this John Bull varied greatly from the musical salons of the courts of gentle royalty. He was a rugged pioneer who fought Indians, became an expert gunsmith and farmer, with many places in many states named after him or his descendants.

Notes for Jacob Bull:
Shortly after the Revolution, Jacob migrated to Washington Co., TN. Before leaving Maryland, he freed his slaves and sold his property. One slave, Hannah, refused to be freed and they brought her and her husband to TN. She was up in years and insisted on coming with her people to TN. Jacob and his brothers owned stores in Baltimore. After Jacob Bull and family had lived on the frontier for many years, he sent his sons and some of their cousins back to Baltimore to buy goods and supplies. The boys were instructed to buy their supplies from uncles, and to visit their kinfolk in Baltimore. Arriving in Baltimore, they hunted up the homes of relatives and the stores. That night, they walked by the beautiful homes, but could not get up enough courage to make themselves known. The next day they purchased their supplies from the uncles, loaded their wagons and headed for TN. Their parents were deeply hurt that they had not seen the relatives, the boys said, "Everything was so different, and we were just "Backwoodsmen"."
Jacob lived in a large two-story log house (2-stories was rare for that time). They lived near a big spring and would wash by the spring and hang the clothes on big rocks to dry.

Read Meeting House (Methodist) edge of Morristown, TN was burned during the Civil War

62. John Valentine5 Bull (Jacob4, John3, Jacob2, John1) was born February 14, 1777 in (Harford) MD, and died October 21, 1840 in Bear Creek (Marion) AL. He married Fetnah (Fetney) Bean April 03, 1806 in (Grainger) TN, daughter of William Bean and Elizabeth Shaw.

Notes for John Valentine Bull:
Buried near Old Allen shirt factory, go 1 mi. west of Bear Creek on
Hwy 172, just past the intersection of Hwy 241 South that crosses Bear Creek,
you continue on Hwy 172 West and you will immediately cross a bridge (Mills
or Mill Creek). Just over this bridge and to the right (North) in the curve which
turns to the right, John Valentine Bull is buried off to the right on the north side
of the road in this curve. This location is east about one-quarter of a mile of where
John Valentine Bull's son Russell Samuel Sellers Bull is buried. Russell Samuel Sellers Bull
is buried on the south side of the road (Hwy 172) along with several slaves, this location
is just right before the road Y's & one route goes to Hackleburg & one to Phil Campbell. The
graves of Russell Samuel Sellers Bull & others are about 100 yards south-southeast of where
Hwy 172 Y's and on the south side of Hwy 172.

He was a gunsmith in Maryland, TN & Marion Co., AL. Probably apprenticed to Robert Hodgson of Baltimore, MD. The stock architecture of his early rifles support this legend, as they have a slight inward curve on the underside of the buttstock. They also have a curved comb-line, where most upper east Tennessee rifles are straight, or nearly so. John's later rifles have the straighter lines. He could have brought a curved stock pattern from Baltimore after his apprenticeship. John probably arrived in TN shortly before 1800.

William Bean's son Robert established Bean's Station, the point on the Wilderness Road where travelers turned north toward the Cumberland Gap for entrance into Kentucky and the northwest. It was a post road and stage route. Located but a short distance was Bull's Gap (in the Bay Mt. area), named for John Bull, the uncle of John Valentine Bull. Bull's Gap had a good source of iron at the Perkins Ironworks or Haines Ironworks. Here John Valentine Bull operated a stage coach line (Bull's Gap to Bean's Station) and here he met and married Fetnah Bean.

John Valentine Bull & Fetnah Bean Bull had eight children. Their 1st son and oldest child, Pleasant Marshall Bull, left home at an early age and took part in the Independence of texas and was killed enroute to the battle of San Jacinto in 1836.

John Valentine Bull moved his family from TN to AL about 1823, first to Walker Co., AL and later to Marion Co., AL. (Marion County was created from the western part of Tuscaloosa County on December 13, 1818, and contained the land west of the Sipsey River and then ran south from the mouth of the Sipsey River "to the ridge dividing the waters of Lookseopelala Creek, and the first large creek south of the same; and thence with said ridge to the Tombigbee River." )This part of Alabama was Chickasaw land at that time. He worked a number of years at Warrior Mountain now called Bull Mountain in Alabama. His shop there was near Gains Trace and Jacksons Military Road, a good location for a gunshop in the 1820's. When the Chickasaw lands in Alabama were ceded to the US in 1832, John and Fetnah moved a few miles east to Bear Creek.
Besides being a gunsmith, John V. Bull also followed farming for many years.

Reference to BULL MOUNTAIN:
42nd Alabama Co K: Bull Mountain Invincibles-- "We are a family based unit. No alcohol or bad language is allowed in the unit. The unit is with The States Rights Bridge. All of our men are members of the SCV out of Hamilton, AL. The name of our camp is The Captain A.J. Hamilton Camp (#1644). When we galvanize we are known as the 14th Iowa." Capt. Condrey's Co.

Two John Bull rifle barrels are known that are marked "Warrior Mt." One is dated 1826 and the other 1829.

Buried alone on a hillside near Bear Creek, AL. "Resting till the resurrection morn." His wife, Fetnah, was superstitious. When he died, she had his body carried across "flowing waters" for burial "to confine his spirit" or "to keep it from returning." She buried him in a lonely spot.

Notes for John Wesley Bull:
Acquired his education in the common schools. Lived with his Mother and sisters until he was 28, when he was married and went to a home of his own. Farmed in Marion Co., AL until 1853 when he came to TX and opened up a farm in Leon Co., TX. He worked 60 acres of land in Leon Co., TX until 1859. Moved to Erath Co. Texas 1859 .He took up residence upon a farm that was later owned by John Meeks. In the Fall of 1861, he pre-empted 160 acres of wild land and at once began its development, but through the next 10 years, his labors were often interrupted by indian troubles. The 160 acres eventually became highly cultivated. During the late war, he aided in defense of the frontier and at the Battle of Concho (near Roby, TX on Dove Creek) fighting indians he was wounded in the thigh. Would have been scalped by Indians had it not been for Daniel W. Smith helping him on his horse. He is a public-spirited, progressive citizen, deeply interested in the welfare of the community and all that pertain to its progress. Buried in (Erath Co.) TX about one mile East of his rock house he built in 1870, which was still standing in 1898. The name of the cemetary is Underwood. No Underwoods are buried there. Jane Susan Easterly Bull and Mrs Mitchell Bull are both buried there. The land the cemetary is on was once John Underwoods land.

Some of this information was from a book written by Lewis, published before 1898.

Notes for Mary Rosamond (Rosa) Bull:
Childhood Memories of Mary Rosamond Bull Osborn:

Learning to plow, the makes of plows, guano distributors, cutting wheat, threshing wheat, large goods boxes for containers, straw beds from wheat, straw stacks, pulling fodder, stacking it in the barn and around poles in the fields (taking the fodder up).

Gathering hazelnuts in the bottoms and hickory nuts in the woods at home.

Picking and loading cotton with a basket out of the little house below the old homeplace. Unloading cotton seed with a tub and carrying it to the old smokehouse. (Chickens were safe when they got under the smokehouse.)

Cutting sprouts, replanting corn, clearing land, log-rolling, hauling guano.

Going to school, seeing summer honeysuckles and water lilies.

Wading the creek, finding campfires, throwing rocks on the ice to break it.

Going to Russellville to get Eva's dresses made.

Bear Creek used to have four passenger trains daily.

Hauling pine knots from the McMurray Bend, north of the Vess Norris (Sylvester Thomas Cordell) place on Big Bear Creek.

We'd go through the woods where there were no roads. When we'd run the hub of the wagon against a tree, we'd back up and pile rocks in front of the wheel, and this would throw the hub from against the tree when it ran over the rocks.

The Tom Moore Bend is west of the McMurray, where Brush creek and Big Bear Creek runs together. McMurray was the father-in-law of Tom Moore. The Allens that ran the upper factory (where Mill Creek ran into Bear Creel) and also the Falls Factory (two or three miles west of the upper factory) owned the land where the bends are, also lots of land around the factories. (Allens owned all this.) Mell Allen, his wife and his daughter, Nellie, lived at the upper factory. (Little Mell, Nellie's son, has relatives at the Falls Factory site.)

Nellie's mother was from Florence, AL, and Nellie spent lots of time there. There's a street in Florence, named in Nellie's honor.

Aunt Mary Patterson, a Negro slave, lived in the servant quarters there and cooked for whoever lived there. She was named for the Pattersons that once owned the land and slaves. The Pattersons originally owned the land around Bear Creek, where the schoolhouse is built. Also, they were ancestors of John Patterson that once lived near Fairview Church. lee and Athel Lang, two of his sons, still live in the community. Lang Allen and family, also his bachelor brother, Joe, lived at the Falls Factory.

The factories made thread and rope. Peddlers went over the country and sold or swapped the thread to people to use in weaving. Grandma (Polk) Mullins came from one of the Allen factories that went broke in Pickens County. She was a young girl then. I think she was Alice McAlister.

Uncle John McCullough and Mr. Mullins were first cousins. Their mothers were sisters. Tories kidnapped Uncle John's father, who was too old to go to the Civil War. They never heard of him again. Grandmother Mc had a silver spoon that they dropped at her house while taking things from them.

I learned to run an Avery turning plow at 11 years of age. (Later, we used Oliver Chilled turning plows. We had one Chattanooga plow.) I continued to plow, doing most anything that was done with a team or just 'Old Deller' or the grey mare or 'Old Pet', a black mule, also other mules. We'd ride to and from the fields on the mules.

I also helped snake logs out of the fields with a yoke of oxen. I'd run the disc harrow, usually with an ox team. I've also run the hay mower before and since I married. I usually ran the one-row corn planter, one-row plows with bull-tongue plow and sweep.

Our plow lines were 32 feet long. We'd stretch the lines to make them even, then cut them in two, making a loop in one end and usually a snap at the other end to fasten in the bridle bit.

After the land was turned, we'd use a guano distributor to lay the rows off with. It had a hopper on a plow stock to put the guano into. There was a spout behind the hopper, leading down behind the plow to the ground. A wheel in front of the hopper turned as the plow was being pulled. Also, a gadget rubbed against the side of the wheel where little spokes or bolts hit them when the wheel turned and made a knocking sound. They kept the guano shaken down and out the back into the spout and around.

Before I learned to plow, it was my job to walk behind the guano distributor and drop two grains of corn every other step. Someone followed behind with a double-shovel plow, a top harrow or sometimes two trips to the row with a bull-tongue or other plow to cover the corn.

Before guano distributors were available, people used long funnel-shaped tin horns. They called them guano horns. They were also used to plant cotton seed through.

They used short sacks with a strap over the shoulder like the ones used in cotton picking. The seed or guano was put into these sacks. One hand held the horn by the funneled top. The other was used to let the seed or guano through the horn a little at a time. Usually, the horn was dragged in the furrow or held near it so the seed or guano would be sure to go into the furrow.

When we children were very small, Mr. Tom Kelley brought his wheat harvester from Kelley's Mill, southwest of Haleyville, and cut and tied the wheat in the field (north) above the first fence row, then known as 'the ten-acre field'. It cut and tied the bundles and threw them in piles of 6. Helpers piled 12 bundles together, then stood 10 up and tuned the heads of the other 2 down over the others to keep the rain off.

We children and others followed the combine or harvester over the field. All this was a real show to us.

After the crops were laid by, someone would come with a threshing machine and put it down at the back of the barn where the house stands now. Father had already had the wheat hauled and stacked under the shed at the barn. The wheat thresher was run similar to the old hay balers. Someone threw the bundles into the hoppers, and horses or mules went around in circles to turn the machinery. Someone had to pack the grain, and others kept the wheat straw back out of the way with pitchforks.

People from all around came with bed ticks, usually made of unbleached domestic (muslin) to get straw for the beds, usually to use under feather beds. This was before bed springs were available.

The surplus wheat straw was stacked in long racks so cattle could get under and feed on the straw. Father stored the wheat in large wooden boxes that we got from merchants that had been used to ship dry goods in. He'd have to keep it sunned to keep out weevils if it was kept long.

Sometimes, he'd take wheat to a flour mill at Pearle's Mill, east of Hamilton, Alabama (or elsewhere). The flour is dark in the natural form. Phosphate is added to commercial wheat to bleach it. The sifters at the mill also separated the flour from shorts, seconds and bran.

In the Spring, we'd have to cut sprouts and replant corn with a hoe. The land was cleared by cutting the small bushes with axes; usually children did this. The men - sometimes women and older children - cut the larger saplings; the younger ones or women piled the brush. The large trees were sometimes cut down and sawed into different lengths to be piled up and burned. (Men would come and bring their families and spend the day.) The menfolk used log stick (poles); usually 4 to 6 men - half on each side of the log - would lift and carry the logs and pile them side by side over the new ground.

Early in the Spring, they would set fire to the log heaps - also to the brush piles - and burn the new ground off. The ground was laid off in rows with a bull-tongue plow and a colter to cut the roots. We'd use scovil hoes to cut the sprouts as they are heavy hoes with an eye to put your own strong handle in. (The women cooked delicious dinners and sometimes suppers for everybody. Sometimes, they'd quilt a quilt.)

Early each Spring, you could hear the sreeching of the brakes on the wagons of people coming down Brush Creek Hill from the west. Sometimes, they came from as far as Hodges or farther. They also hauled the baled cotton to be shipped from Bear Creek.

This was before the Illinois Central (I.C.) Railroad was built. The right of way was cut in 1904. The pillars under the bridge across were built or poured (concrete) in 1905.

Mr. Henry Cassels, the boss, went back home about July 4, 1905, on a vacation. All the hands, I think, could have gone free from Grand Junction, Tennessee, where they transferred to the I.C. None of them went except Father.

Mr. Cassels had a wife and one daughter, Galdys. They lived at 6436 Champlain Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. Gladys came back years later with he father to inspect the pillars. They got off the Dude after dark at Lumbull and borrowed a lantern and came to our house and stayed several days. (We didn't know they were coming.)

Also later, I think, Mrs. Cassels wrote Mother a letter and asked Mother if she and Gladys might visit us. At that time, we only had the room with the fireplace, a porch and side room. Mother told Father she was going to write her not to come. He hired Sherman Evans and Mr. Wiley to come help.

Father went to Haleyville and got dressed lumber for the walls, ceilings and floors - also doors and windows. He also got flooring for the room where the fireplace is.

He and Mother went to town and got a wicker rocker, a center table and a large dresser that was still in the house when Mother moved to the new house.

The railroad was completed in 1907.

Contractors with large mules and scoops or graders with wheels were used to move the dirt for short distances. The laborers were mostly Negroes. They loaded the scoops like they do the ones to build terraces, except these had wheels and were larger. (Bush)

There was a camp on Rocky Branch below the Sherman Hill place; also Bates had a camp between home and the Railroad Bridge. They had moved from near the gravel pit west of John Wilson's place. Tally had a camp near Jake Green's.

After the grading got to where steam shovels could be used, they laid track from Haleyville, to move the steel over to build the bridge. Work trains moved the dirt after the track was laid where they could get over it.

A Mr. Adam was the boss when they built the bridge. His crew were white men. They built a long kitchen and also added to the house Mr. Cassels built. Some of them lived in tents. They made a place in the road bank and had ice shipped in and kept it in sawdust. They also got large trunk-like boxes full of fresh bread from Russellville, Alabama.

Bear Creek had a flourishing business while the railroad was being built. I heard Lucien Phillips say he slept upstairs in the store and had sold as much as a thousand dollars worth lots of nights. Haleyville was much smaller than Bear Creek then and had very poor roads to it.

The contractors came from as far as - or maybe farther than - Vina, Alabama, after supplies. They hired local people with wagons and teams to haul their hay and oats for their teams. Each camp had a commissary to supply the workers with food, etc.

Father and Cousin Oliver Bull each had a wagon and team of oxen and hauled a load of cement - 20 sacks, 100 pounds each - every morning from Bear Creek; then back to No. 8 Cut to get a load of gravel. This was in 1905.

They also hauled the long iron bolts that had to be put into the concrete before it hardened. After they crossed the creek, they hauled the gravel from the side of the road on John Wilson's place.

They had a tank for water part way up the hill from the creek on the west side. They also piped water from the spring there into the kitchen, when they were building the bridge. All the concrete had to be turned by hand, and all the gravel had to be loaded with shovels. They dug deep, square holes for the concrete. Most of them were to solid rock.

Jim Long and Mell King stayed at our house and worked there.

The track was laid all the way to Corinth, Mississippi, before Memorial Day in 1907, I think. They ran a Passenger Excursion Train from Haleyville to Corinth. Father and Eva went for half price, I think. They got on the train at Lumbull. Meda and Sue Bull got on at Goddard and went, too. I guess, of course, they started laying track at Corinth, but don't know where they met.

Mr. Jessie Davis and his family lived in the old log houses in the Bottoms. They cleared the hillsides and cultivated them. They had once been cleared, or at least the ones west of the creek. Mr. George Carroll lived there then and made a thousand bushels of corn with one mule that had to almost walk on three feet. (It had stepped on a stub of a cane that had been cut off.) He built a little barn on the rocks west of the house.

He kept his milk cow under a bluff above the house. He had a fence around it. There were two separate rooms of the house. One was about 20 x 20. Maybe they both were. Each had chimneys. Mother said one was Grandmother Bull's kitchen; the other one was uncle Jack Byar's house that used to set next to the road on the east side before you go down the hill to Lumbull. Grandfather sold them the land, but it didn't come up on the level land. He let them build on his land so she could wait on Grandmother, who was sickly.

He also sold Uncle John McCullough the land where the church is built, and they built close to Grandmother near the line. I think Aunt Caroline was sick when she lived there too. He may have sold John Wilson some land too. They lived at the foot of the hill, where the pasture used to be when Aunt Nancy was living. I don't know if she ever lived in the edge of the field where there was a house when we went to school at Fairview, Alabama.

I think an Adams family originally lived where the old house burned. I think the graves in the field are Nixes.

(As a footnote t these recollections of Mary Rosa Bull Osborn, I think we can assume she did not put in writing all she intended. She had an amazing memory, and these notes she left only scratched the surface. They were jotted down in a little notebook she had entitled "Childhood Memories" and probably were written shortly before she passed away. The pages were loose and not in their rightful order; it is likely that she dropped them and then mixed the pages when she put them back in the notebook. However, as nearly as I could determine., the notes herein are just as she remembered and recorded them herself. Some of them were written with a steady hand and were very legible, but others were almost impossible to decipher. Notes transcribed by Barbara Marvena Fadler Osborn, daughter-in-law.)
