Hi James, I have found that my Robert Pulliam was the son of Charlie W. Pulliam b. 1859 Tippah Co. Ms. Married Amanda A Rowland B. 1855. Father of Charlie was Vachel Pulliam b. 1826 in NC, married Martha M Murphy b.1831 on ll-16-1848. Vachel d. 1912. Vachel was the son of Silas and Sarah Morgan Pulliam.Most of these Pulliams are buried in Harmony Cemetery, Harmony Baptist Church, Walnut, Ms. So, it seems we have no record thus far of a NC connection. But I will keep your info and contact you if I find anything. Thanks for replying.
