I am the great-grandson of Thomas Pullum, and I am interested in finding any of his relatives' descendents.
Thomas lived in Newton County, GA. in the 1840s. He moved to Dale County, AL. with the Elijah Clark family during the 1840s. He was a farmhand for Mr. Clark. Later he married Mr. Clark's daughter, Mahala (July 5, 1832 - March 15, 1915), by his first wife: Sarah. They had at least three, if not four, sons:
H. K., born in 1851 and died at age eight or nine; John Drayton (born October 31, 1853, died May 7, 1936); and, Thomas S. (born 1855, death-date unknown). There may have been a fourth son named Massey or Massie, who moved to the area of Esto and/or Noma, FL. I do not know his birth- or deathdate.
Almost all of these, as well as other Pullums, are buried in the Clark Cemetery in western Houston County, AL., but the area was once part of Dale County.
Thomas served as a lieutenant in the GA. infantry during the War Between the States, even though already residing in Alabama.
Thomas' father may have had the same name (Thomas) or have been named Richard. Richard married Hannah Ogletree and they had a daughter named Amanda Pullum who married Peyton W. Bailey. Richard Pullum appears in the 1840 Morgan County, GA. census. Apparently he died prior to 1850. Peyton and Amanda are in the 1850 census of Sumter County, GA., with Hannah living with them, but they later moved to Dale County, AL. as well.
It is my understanding that there are Pullums living in the area of Covington, GA. who are kin to Thomas and/or Amanda's ancestors. I am desperately trying to reach some of them.
Please, PLEASE, P-L-E-A-S-E! help me reach them!!
