Just wondered if anyone had any information on John Wood Pulliam he was born in 1864 in Nashville, IL (Washington Co.)and died in Carterville, IL (Williamson Co.) in 1949.He had brothers named Charlie and Dave, but I have no information on other children or who his parents might have been.I also have a picture of a man named Thomas D. Pulliam born Nov. 20, 1830 (Location unknown). He has a long white beard and there is a woman's hand on his shoulder. Possibly a child, the hand is quite small, but I haven't seen pictures with a child in that pose before.The picture was taken in Nashville, probably Illinois.
I found a Thomas D. Pulliam, 19, in the 1850 Washington County, Illinois census living with a lady named Mary (His Mother?), 58, but still can't connect anything.
My sister and I have always wondered who Thomas was and how he was connected to the family.I'm not sure our Grandmother even knew and she is our Pulliam connection.Her name was Lena Ollie Pulliam.Uselton was her married name. If anyone has any information on especially John Wood Pulliam we appreciate hearing from them.Of course information on Thomas D. Pulliam just might be the connection we need to break everything loose too.I really wonder if he could be John's father or uncle. Thanks for any help.Susan Burnett
