Mark Whiting Pullen Genealogy Home PageUpdated February 20, 2008
|Mark Whiting Pullen|
|My immediate ancestors lived in Monona and Woodbury counties, located in west-central Iowa between Onawa and Sioux City near the Missouri River. This is the area in which the Pullen, Smith, Olson, Peterson, Cassady, Holmes, Pike, and Whiting Families married. |
My first Pullen ancestor to reach America was Nicholas Pullen of Rehoboth, Mass. Nicholas was born in 1683 and was christened in Widworthy Parish, Devon, England. His parents were John Pullen and Anstis Dabnye, who were married on October 24, 1682 in Widworthy. Nicholas came to America as a young man and married Mary Tucker at Rehoboth Massachusettes in 1709. This couple had eight children. My direct branch of the Pullen family went from Massachusettes>Maine>Iowa.
My Whiting Family has been in the United States since the 1630's. They settled in Dedham, Massachusetts. From Dedham, my Whiting family migrated to New York>Ohio>Monona County, Iowa and settled in an area known as “The Whiting Settlement”.
My Olson family immigrated from Norway and my Peterson family from Sweden and they settled in the Albaton area of Monona county Iowa, in the mid 1800's.
The primary surnames included in the family trees on these pages are; Pullen, Smith, Olson, Peterson, Criner, Cassady, Holmes, Pike, and Whiting, although many more are included.
