PULLEN in Fredericksburg, VA.My mother was Elizabeth Marvel Pullen, born in Chester,PA.Her great grandparents were Capt. Samuel M. Pullen b. c. 1815, Fredericksburg, VA and Martha Truman Marvel b. c. 1816 in Milton, DE.They were m. 19 Jan 1835 in St. Paul's Episcopal, Chester, Delaware Co., PA.Samuel was a Waterman.
Samuel M. Pullen is possibly the son of Lindsey/Lindsay Pullen who is in Fredericksburg, VA in 1820,1830,1836 and 1840.It appears that Lindsey was born bet. 1775-1780.There were also a Thomas & a James in Spotsylvania Co., VA in 1810.They appear to be born bef. 1765.There's also a Jesse Pullen b. bef. 1765 that was in Richmond Co., VA in 1810.
Capt. Samuel M. might have had brothers by names of John B. b. c. 1800 and Jesse b. bet. 1800-1810. This younger Jesse Pullen appears to have married Eliza Shepard in 1828 and Lucy M. Ames in 1834 in Fredericksburg, VA.
Capt. Samuel M. & Martha had children: William Dean Pullen b. 1836 (named after a friend); Theodore Pullen b. c. 1839; Sarah Pullen b. c. 1841; Samuel L. Pullen b. Mar 1884; Mary E. Pullen b. c. 1845, m. Edward L. McGinley; Martha J. Pullen; Susannah Pullen b. Jul 1850; Jesse B. Pullen b. May 1854. Willian Dean Pullen and Samuel L. Pullen served in the Civil War from PA.
Samuel M. being born in Fredericksburg, VA and naming a son Jesse B. Pullen seems to show the connection to the others in early 1800's Fredericksburg, VA.
Many in the line of Jesse B. Pullen Sr. resided in NY.
Another researcher also gives info that an Elizabeth Pullen b. 1807 in Lancaster Co., VA, d. 20 Mar 1874 in Fredericksburg, VA was the daughter of a Lindsey Pullen with no info on Lindsey.Elizabeth m. Charles Wellford Gore and named a son Jesse Pullen Gore in 1835.
Feel this line somehow connects to the early Henry Pullen in VA that m. Mary Stott, but have never found the connection.Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
