BARBEE, BULPITT, COVER, DUEY, GEORGE, GRAHAM, MILLER, MITCHELL, RICHARDSON, SNOW posted by Margo Bulpitt on Sunday, January 21, 2001

I am tracing the BULPITT family members that emigrated from P E I to the U S A there appear to be two to three families which settled in the area of Sangamon and Christian Co. Illinois, near present day "Bulpitt" township.
1) Ferdimand Spiller BULPITT of PEI married Mary E RICHARDSON in 1872 in Chrisitian Co. Illinois Ferdimand had the following children Adele (married a Mr. COVER), Ross, Chester, Lutie (married Mr. BARBEE), Earl and Loren. I am unsure whether not these children were all by the same wife and raised in Illinois only Ross is listed in S S N info for state.
2) James C. BULPITT of PEI and his Wife Annie SNOW of Vermont arrived in Christian County in the late 1850s. James first found work as a carpenter and then bought a farm in presnt day Bulpitt, Christian CO, Illinois and also ran the first general store in the locality (per Hhistorical encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Christian County). There children were Lizzie married Mr. GRAHAM), Delia (Married Mr. MILLER), Ida (married Mr. MITCHELL), Theodore P., Adin, Annie, William L (married Bertha DUEY) and Edward Andrew whom married Mary L. GEORGE.
3) Edward Andrew took over the farm and founded a coal mine.. he is the founder of Bulpitt Illinois and is the only offspring which I know anything about. He and his wife had the following children.. Hazel, George, James and Gwendolyn. James married someone and had a child James Jr.
I note a lot of Bulpitt concentrated in Springfield and Taylorville area, but could not connect them to the above information.
