BULLOCKs in Minnesota

BULLOCKs in Minnesota

Surnames: Bullock
I am researching some Bullocks that were in Freeborn Co. and later Otter Tail Co. Minnesota. Given their proximity, I know they are all related but I can't figure out how, for sure, and thought I would see if anyone can help. Here is what I have:
The chart is the Oakland, Freeborn Co., Minnesota 1860 census. On 2 adjacent pages there is: (listing head of house only)

NAME AGE - 1860 BORN
Joel Bullock 32 NY
Asa Jr 44 NY
Samuel E 27 NY
Nathan B 39 Mass
Tyler 50 VT
Cyrus 33 NY

Tyler, Nathan and Cyrus in same county (Lake) in Illinois in 1850, Tyler and Nathan in same house (Warren), also in house Lorenzo age 48, could be brother to Tyler and father to Nathan? Cyrus is in different town (Newport) but same county. Asa Sr age 54 in same county, a 3rd town (Avon) with Joel in household. Also in this house is an 18 year old Lemuel. Could Samuel E and Lemuel be same person?

Obviously they would have to be related, but how, for sure?

John & Tabitha BULLOCK

I am looking for the descendants of a John Bullock and Tabitha who lived in Strafford Orange Vermont 1785-1813. They had a son name Ephraim1792, David1799 and Joel 1791 and Adam1794. I have found David and Ephraim in Allegany New York. Adam is in Cattaraugus New York around 1850. And Joel is in Cattaraugus in 1830 but then I can't find what happen to him. Ephraim married Electa White ---David married a Slyvia Pratt and later married a Laura --last name unknown. I don't know the wives of Joel or Adam. Or the name of their sons --I wondered if your Minnesota Bullocks may have been related. Are they on the 1870 Census and does it place their father as being born in Vermont? Thanks for the info

I have been checking the Bullocks for the last year. Thought you might appreciate knowning the following. The 1880 Census records parents birth states.

Joel <1828>
Nathan<1821>
Cyrus<1827>

Both parents born in Vermont

Lemuel <1827>
Samuel<1831>

Both parents born in Mass.

Asa <1816>

Both parents born in New York

Tyler <1810>
Not on the 1880 census

My relatives John Bullockbefore<1750> and Tabitha <1769> (a native America)
had a son Adam born 5 Jan 1794 in Strafford Vermont.
He lived in Freedom Cattaraugus New York in the 1840 and 1850 Census.

The 1840 Census have no names -sex and age range -
I believe that Joel, Cyrus and Nathan may be his sons. They fit the sex and age range recorded in the 1840 Census. And were born in New York. If you are interested in exchanging more information contact me at wayment_family@hotmail.com

Ephraim Bullock and
Electra White moved to Short Tract (Granger),Allegany, New York.

Ephraim lived to be 90 years old and Electra died the 12 May 1857. They are both buried in the Short Tract Cemetery.

The following children are believed to be theirs. They are buried in the Short Tract Cemetery --but only their names and age are given. Using 1830-1850 Census this is my best
guess
Harrison was born 1800-1810 and died at the age of 19
Abigail born about 1822 and died age 57
Elmira born 1830-1835 died age 70
Mary 1835 died age 82
John Dory 1834 may be the J.D. Bullock listed in the 1880 Census in Farmington Wisconsin .
Anner 1835-49 died at age 5

Hello,
Let me state my problem: In 1841 in London, England Census my grandfather 3x removed, Uriah BROMWICH and family had a young girl age 10 living with them, her name was ELIZABETH BULLOCK, it stated she was born in the district which would have been Middlesex. In 1851 my ancestors immigrated to the USA and with them came a servant, Elizabeth Bullock age 21. I suspect she could be the daughter of John and Priscilla Bullock but I have no proof. There are several possibilities. In 1860, my grandmother 3x removed, Jane with the children after the death of her husband, moved to Freeborn, Minnesota.
Is it possible that you know of or have heard of this Elizabeth Bullock. In England I know of a couple of Bromwich's that married Bullock's and I am wondering if this maybe a niece of my ancestors.

I might be able to help:

"NAME AGE - 1860 BORN
Joel Bullock 32 NY
Asa Jr 44 NY
Samuel E 27 NY
Nathan B 39 Mass
Tyler 50 VT
Cyrus 33 NY"

Joel L., Asa Jr., Lemuel Elkanah (Samuel is Tyler's son), Nathan B., and Cyrus Edas Bullock are brothers -- the sons of Asa Bullock born November 25, 1792 Vermont and Sarah Blanchard born August 27, 1793 Vermont. Asa and Sarah were married October 17, 1815 in Vermont. Their entire family looks like this:

*Asa Bullock 7-9-1816 to 9-9-1864 b.NY married Candace Fuller b.1830 NY
*Sarah Elizabeth Bullock 8-3-1819 to 11-12-1900 married Reuben Babcock born 1819 NY.
*Nathan B. Bullock 3-24-1821 to 11-181878 married Sarah Bullock (daughter of Tyler) born 1836 NY.
*John Bullock 12-26-1823 to 11-29-1845.
*Cyrus Edas Bullock 6-10-1827 to August 11, 1890 married Sarah Miller born 1822 Illinois.
*Joel L. Bullock 4-5-1828 to 10-3-1895 married Mary Ann Chope born 1834 England.
*Anna Marie Bullock 7-3-1830 to 11-1-1845.
*Lemuel Elkanah Bullock 1-25-1833 to 4-20-1909 married Azubah Carpenter born 8-13-1834.
*Prudah Melissa Bullock 12-23-1835 to 10-1-1906 married William/Williard S. Carpenter born 11-10-1832.
*William Henry Harrison Bullock 3-5-1840 to 6-2-1888 married Isadora Fuller.


Tyler Bullock born November 15, 1809 in Vermont was the son of Elkanah Bullock and Phebe Cook. He married Wealthy Mariah Cook (the daughter of Samuel Brown Cook and Sarah Lewis. His family looks like:
*Sarah Bullock 8-25-1836 to 7-10-1900 married Nathan B. Bullock (above).
*Betsy Bullock born circa 1839.
*Samuel Lewis Bullock born 3-12-1843 to 6-6-1913 married Sarah Ann Bullock born 1851 ILL (Joel L. Bullock's daughter).
*Phebe Bullock b. 1836 NY.

Tyler and Asa are related . . . but a couple of generations up, it's really confusing.


"Tyler, Nathan and Cyrus in same county (Lake) in Illinois in 1850, Tyler and Nathan in same house (Warren), also in house Lorenzo age 48, could be brother to Tyler and father to Nathan? Cyrus is in different town (Newport) but same county. Asa Sr age 54 in same county, a 3rd town (Avon) with Joel in household. Also in this house is an 18 year old Lemuel. Could Samuel E and Lemuel be same person?"

Samuel and Lemuel aren't the same (explained above) and I'm not sure who Lorenzo Bullock is either. I know that Tyler's outcome of hosting his cousin-nephew-Nathan B. Bullock in Illinois is that his daughter Sarah married Nathan B. (Cyrus remember, was Nathan B. Bullock's brother).

I'm a direct descendant of Nathan B. Bullock, Sarah Elizabeth Bullock, and Tyler Bullock. If you find out who Lorenzo is and how he fits in, I'd like to know!

Lorenzo Bullock

Ancestry.com gives Lorenzo's age as 18 (implying that the first mark before "18" was interpreted as a stray).

I read Lorenzo Bullock's age as 1/8. This seems nonsensical (fractional ages are usually given with 12 in the denominator), but there are other cases where this census taker appears to have given unusual fractional ages – e.g., George Ray (page 4) has an age of 1/8; Emily M. Shumway (page 6) has an age of 1/12; and Lilly Ann Bennett (page 9) has an age of 1/6. Presumably "1/8" means six weeks of age.

Evidence for my reading of a fractional age includes (a) the numerals in each of these fractional cases are smaller than for whole number ages; (b) an absence of stray marks throughout the census; (c) where the census taker writes the numeral "4" it is written clearly and looks unlike the first two marks under Lorenzo's age; and (d) there is no evidence that any Bullock lived in Illinois in 1802, which is the year in which Lorenzo would have been born if his age were 48.

None of this settles the question of who Lorenzo was. I do not see the name in any later censuses. If his age is 1/8, as I argue, then the fact he is listed under Nathan B. Bullock would imply Lorenzo was Nathan's son.

Also, there is no evidence that Asa Bullock, nor any of his descendants, were in Illinois as early as 1832, which is the date of Lorenzo's birth if his age in 1850 was 18, as Ancestry.com has it (Asa Bullock is still in Ellisburgh, New York in the 1840 census).

You are so right on. You should contact Steve Cota to find out exactly how they are related; he was able to answer my questions!

This is what I know for certain from our family history:

Joel Bullock was born in NY (the son of Asa Bullock and Sarah Blanchard) and married Mary Ann Chope (b England); their children were Sara Ann, Asa L., William U., and Emma E. Bullock. I'm the descendant of Joel's sister, Sarah Elizabeth Bullock and Joel's brother, Nathan B. Bullock.
