Green B. BUllock is a successful planter and cotton-ginner of Drew County, Ark., and was born in Meriwether County, Ga., April 8, 1834, being a son of Cyprian and Lucinda (Gray) Bullock, who were also born in Georgia, the former's birth occurring in 1802 and the latter's in 1814, their marriage being consumated in 1833. Their children are as follows: Green B., Martha A., Daniel H., Jesse H., Cyprian, Benjamin F. and Samuel. Two of the family reside in Drew County, Ark, and the rest in Meriwether County, Ga., the parents also residing there, and the father being a farmer by occupation, and a man who takes an interest in all good works. They are both members of the Baptist Church, and although quite aged their minds are still active and show but little the ravages of time. Green B. Bullock was reared and educated in his native State, and was there also married, his wife being a Miss Ellen Courtney, a native of the State and a daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth Courtney. She was born in 1837, and on October 15, 1855, her union with Mr. Bullock was celebrated. In 1856 they emigrated to Arkansas and settled on their present farm in Drew County, which consists of 640 acres of good land, 125 being under cultivation. His cotton-gin is fitted up with all the latest improvements and nets him a paying annual income. He is a member of the Agricultural Wheel, a Mason, belonging to Collins Lodge No. 212, and is a man who is interested in everything for the good of the county, giving liberally of his means in the support of worthy enterprises. He served in the Confederate army during the Rebellion, enlisting in 1862 under Gen. Hindman, and the first hard fight in which he took part was at Prairie Grove, Ark. He held the office of sergeant under Gen. Churchill, and in May, 1865, was discharged at Marshall, Tex., and returned home to resume tilling the soil, to which he has since given his attention. He is a patron of schools, has been a director in his district for twelve years, and has given his children good educational advantages. His family is as follows: Elizabeth (deceased), Lucinda (deceased), Delia (wife of Henry Lephew), green B. (who is married to Emma McNeas), William C., Ophelier, Cyprian, Mattie and Stephen R. (deceased).
