Pat, Thanks for your quick response.Is the email address for you up to date?If so, I would like to pursue our discussion directly.All of my data is from a very competent Pulliam researcher and I would be happy to refer you to her and share her data which includes the following:
David Pulliam (will 7 Feb 1794 Spots. Co. VA Bk E , Berkly Parish) m. Elizabeth (Betty) Dickinson, dau. of Nathaniel Dickinson & Elizabeth PULLIAM.Elizabeth Pulliam was the dau. of John Pulliam & Agnes Allen.John was a brother of Patterson Pulliam whose wife was Elizabeth Holladay.Another brother Thomas Pulliam was married to Winifred Holladay, sister to Elizabeth Holladay.
David and Betty Pulliam's children are given as: 1. Mary Ann 2. Sally 3. Nathaniel 4. Richard H.(ancestor of David K. Pulliam) 5. John R. 6. Elijah 7. James 8. Wm. Joseph 9. Elizabeth m. Charles Carter (named guardian to Wm. & Nancy after David died) 10. Nancy
Was Elizabeth Carter Pulliam a dau. of William Pulliam???What was her connection??? Also, could the Elijah above be your Elisha?The time frame would be right 1770-1780s. As to the name David, another researcher sent me her database which lists an earlier David Pulliam b. 1692, supposedly another brother of John, Thomas and Patterson.I don't know where that came from. I have not seen the name Alsey so far in my records, but there was a marriage to an ALSUP.Agnes b. 1734, dau. of John and Agnes (Allen) Pulliam m. Joseph Alsup.Could the name have come from there?
You can email me directly at the address given, OK?Gail
