I descend from Silas Pulliam through his son Thomas. I have been searching for his parents for a few yrs. Wanda Forste, of N.M. told me she had been given the following info though she has no source data for it. Does anyone have source data to prove this info?
William Pulliam and Sarah Patterson Patterson Pulliam and Elizabeth Holliday Patterson Pulliam JR and Sarah (Cox) Moore (widow) William Patterson PulliamPulliam Sr and Mary unknown 1. William Patterson Jr. 1793 NC m. Frances McNalla 2. Silas 1794 NC m. Sarah Morgan 3. James H. Pulliam 1796 NC m. Sarah J
Prior to receiving this information, I had been researching Cullen Pulliam, son of John Pulliam of Franklin Co. NC, as a possible father for Silas. I had based this on circumstantial evidence.
1. 1800 Montgomery Co. NC census Pg.498- Alsey Pulliam- male age 16-25(brother of Cullen?
2. In Montgomery Co. NC 1810 census Pg. 59 Curren (Cullen)Pullum-10110-2101 (Cullen-26-45) (Silas ?-15-26) next door is:Sally Morgan-20000-01001(Sarah ?-10-15)
3. Montgomery Co. NC 1830 census pg. 40- Silas Pulliam Richmond Co. NC 1830(near Mont.) Pg. 193- Cullen Pulliam-1m-50-60, 1f,50-60) Davidson Co. NC 1830 census Pg. 235- Lodwick B. Pulliam (son of John)
4. Hardeman Co. TN- 1840 census. pg. 282- Silas Pulliam pg. 268- Laudewick B. Pulliam (son of John, brother of Cullen)
Any help would be much appreciated. I could use some input. Thanks, Sandy
