Bullock Info

Jeptha (Jepna) Bullock married Ada Searcy on February 24, 1841 in Wilkinson County, GA. I know they moved to Alabama then back to Georgia and that Jeptha died in Early Co. GA in June of 1883. I obtained his death mention in a local newspaper. I believe Jepthas parents were James Bullock and Unknown (this James is the James Bullock who married his second wife, Elizabeth Searcy, also in Wilkinson Co. GA). I believe Jepthas paternal grandparents were John Bullock and Sarah Mayo, and paternal great grandparents were David Bullock & Elizabeth Hood, this last is from other resources.

Jeptha and Ada had at least children 9 children: Three girls & Six Boys

Sarah Bullock b. about 1842 d. February 13, 1927 married George Shelton Pickle on 2-18-1861. Several known children from this marriage, Known Census Locations {1860 Early Co. GA, 1870 Early Co. GA}
[Note other researchers think that the Sarah Bullock who married G. S. Pickle was from Decatur Co. GA, but I believe that is incorrect because my Sarah Bullock and her family was listed as next-door neighbors to the family of George S. Pickle in the only census that I have found her own as a Bullock, 1860 Early Co. GA.]

Elizabeth Bullock b. about 1846 d. unknown date and place. Known Census Locations {1860 Early Co. GA}.
[No other concrete information on her. One possible marriage was to Jessie Sikes in Decatur Co. GA on 1-5-1865]

Marsha (Martha / Mattie?) Bullock b. about 1862 d. unknown date and place. Known Census Locations: {1870 Early Co. GA, 1880 Early Co. GA}
[No other concrete information on her, but one possible marriage that was in Early Co. GA on July 16, 1885 to a William H. Mimms, that womans name was MITTIE BULLOUCH]

Thomas (Thos D) Bullock b. about 1846 in Georgia d. unknown date and place married Rachel Story, b. about 1847 Georgia d. unknown date and place, on 10-30-1869 in Decatur Co. GA. One known child of this marriage John S. Bullock b. about 1868 in Georgia. Known Census Locations {1860 Early Co, GA, 1870 Early Co. GA}
[I think that Rachel might have had a connection to Harriet Hatchers, below, third husband J. S. Story (Jessie/ James?)]

John A. Bullock b. about 1848 in Alabama d. before 1877 married Harriet L. Hatcher (Parks / Story), b. about 1850 in Lee Co. GA died August 24, 1924 in Muscogee Co. GA , on December 29, 1869 Decatur Co. GA. One possible child from this marriage James A. Bullock Jimmy Known Census Locations {1860 Early Co, GA, 1870 Early Co. GA} OUR FAMILY
[I found a living granddaughter (as of 11-18-2007) of Harriet Hatcher, by her third husband, she informed me that she remembered her grandmother telling her that her first husband, Parks, worked with lumber he died from an accident. Also, that her second husband, the Bullock, died in the line of duty, her granddaughter could not remember specifically if a sheriff or police officer. ]

Josiah (Joseph?) b. about 1850 d. unknown date and place. Known Census Locations {1860 Early Co, GA, 1870 Early Co. GA}

I have not looked at my records on the Edgecomne Bullock's lately but I do know some of the Edgecombe county Bullock's went to Alabama and Georgia in the early 1800.
If you would like to contact me you may do so at vicdee45@yahoo.com.
