I know by checking other sites you are relentless with your Pulliam/Pullam research. I applaud you!!!
I checked Macoupin but couldn't connect to those Pulliams.
I myself have been so frustrated with the different spellings.Each census I am lucky enough to locate gives me another spellling Pullum.Not to mention a new birthplace for my William E., ie, Illinois, Ohio, Virginia.
I just replied to Cheryl Hanney's email maybe you could take a look at the information I gave her.I was not able to cut and paste it to this reply.
