Brown, Ruben

Crossroads, Sebastian Co.
It is told in local history that Ruben Brown was wounded during the Civil War and came onto John Bull's land & died there. He was the first person buried in the Bull Cemetery. I have not made a connection, but there was a Thomas Brown who moved Alabama about 1840 from Alabama to the Shilo Community of Sebastian County Arkansas. Thomas Brown was married to Mary "Poly" Bull and she was the age generation that she may have been a sister to John Bull. Rueben Brown is of the same age generation he may have been a brother to Thomas Bull. John Bull was a northern sympathized and he did not fight in the civil war. It is very possible that Rueben Brown was hiding from the confederate or bushwhackers from that area. Marker Photo

John Bull lived for a time in Alabama & married (1) Martha Jeffers. He moved his family to Texas about 1840 before he moved to Polk County Arkansas. By 1850, he was living in Polk County and he had married (2) Mary Delia Self. They had several more children and eventually settled in the Crossroads Community near Dayton Arkansas. He was the founde of the Bull Cemetery & several of his children are buried in the Bull Cemetery. This cemetery is now know as the Bull-Norried Cemetery. One of John's grand-daughters married into the Norried Family and the cemetery is on land that came into the hands of the Norried Family. It was descendents of the Norried Family who went back in and place a chain link fence around the cemetery. Charles Vincent, husband of Janette Bull, cleared the cemetery of ungrowth & trees that had overtaken the cemetery. John Bull & Mary Delia Self Bull had 9 children; Martha Louisa, Elizabeth "Betsy" "Kissie", Sarah Luusia "Tucker", Benjamin McGee, William Basil, Allen Lester, Thomas C., Elmira Clementine "Annie", & Nancy Angeline. John Bull is my GGGGrandfather. Marker Photo

I have not been able to prove parentage of Mary Delila Self. She was living in Polk County Arkansas in 1850 along with other Self Family members that are descendants of Elijah "Eli" and Sarah Fletcher Self. She was the second wife of John Bull. They were married about 1849 probably in Polk County Arkansas. Marker Photo
