William Bullock is a worthy and fairly successful planter and cotton-ginner of Drew County, Ark, and was born in Georgia, July 12, 1834, being a brother of Stephen Bullock, whose sketch appears above. William was educated in the common schools of his native State, and was married there October 18, 1865, to Miss Millie Courtney, a daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth Courtney, who died April 7, 1869, leaving four children: Stephen, Mary Jane, Melissa, and Catharine. Shortly after his marriage, Mr. Bullock removed to Drew County, Ark., and is now residing on an exceedingly fertile and well-kept tract of land, embracing 540 acres, 200 acres of which are under cultivation and well stocked. He is the owner of a fine steam cotton-gin, which is fitted up with all the latest improvements, and this brings him in a paying annual income. He has held the office of lecturer, and is now treasurer of the Agricultural Wheel. He was again married December 6, 1871, to Miss Mary Baldy, and he and his wife are earnest members of the Christian Church. They are the parents of eight children, whose namees are as follows: Sydney, Thomas, Lelia, Henry, Ola, Jo, Emma, and green C. On June 1, 1862, Mr. Bullock enlisted in the Confederate army under Gen. Hindman, and the first severe engagement in which he participated was at Prairie Grove, Washington County, Ark. After serving the cause he espoused in a very faithful manner, he received his dischage in May, 1865, after which he returned home and resumed tilling the soil, which occupation has received his attention ever since.
