My interest in the Pullin family stems from Etta C. Pullin who married Jared M. Ralston in 1903. In the 1910 census of Highland Co., Va. Jared and Etta are enumerated with three Ralston children that were born prior to their marriage. Checking back to the 1900 census I found two of these three children enumerated with Bolser Pullin as his grandchildren, all carrying the Pullin surname. All of the Pullin children living at home are single, including Etta.
I have this supicion that Etta had three or perhaps four children out of wedlock prior to her 1903 marriage to Jared. The children in question are:
Dewitt H. Pullin/Ralston b. Jan 11, 1896 Va. Arby Pullin b. Jan 1898 Va. Margie J. Pullin/Ralston b. July 1899 Va. Horner Ralston b. abt. 1902 Va. (his name might be Homer)
It may be that these four are children of one of Etta's brothers who became widowed. I just do not have all the names of Bolser Pullin's children from his two marriages.
