Among the representative planters of the county none are more favorably known or highly respected than Mr. Bullock, whose birth occurred in the State of Georgia, October 3, 1847. His parents, Henry and Cinderella(Bussey) Bullock, were born in South Carolina and Georgia, April 8, 1806, and November 16, 1814, respectively, and their union resulted in the birth of thirteen children, the following of whom are living: William, Cyprian, Lucinda, Stephen, Jasper, and Lissie, all of whom are residents of Drew County, Ark. The father was a successful planter, and at the time of his death, August 31, 1884, left an estate of 240 acres, which he willed to his youngest child. He was a deacon of the Baptist Church for many years, and was a public-spirited and worthy citizen. His wife, who also belonged to the Baptist Church, passed from life May 5, 1882. Stephen Bullock came to Drew County, Ark., with his parents in 1856, and here received his education, being an attendant of the common schools. On starting out in life for himself his worldly possessions consisted of $100 in money, a horse and a cow, but he set energetically to work in farming, and his labors have been attended with excellent results, and he is now the owner of 340 acres of land, of which seventy acres are under cultivation. He is interested in all good works, and socially is a member of the K. of H., and the Agricultural Wheel. He and his wife, whom he married November 30, 1870, and whose maiden name was Lou Skipper, are members of the Christian Church. She was born in Alabama in 1854, and is in every aspect a helpmate to her husband.
