George Pulliam, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, George Pulliam might describe his life as follows.

I was probably born in New Kent County where a large Pulliam family lived, but settled in Southside in Prince Edward County where I was a second lieutenant in its militia during the Revolution, and provided a horse and some wheat to the army, for which I was later reimbursed.
My wife was married Frances Price, a daughter of Pugh Price, whom I married in Prince Edward 18 October (bond) 1773. By 1785 our household was comprised of seven, presumably me, Frances, and our five children, all of whom I named in the will I made later that year on 21 December 1785.
I was dead by 18 June 1786 having left a sufficient estate to pay my debts.
Since all my children were minors, and indeed another was on the way, when I made my will, my estate was still listed on the tax rolls of Prince Edward in 1800.

In 1800 the estate of George Pulliam was charged on one white male, presumably George who would marry a few years later, 3 horses, and 3 slaves.
