DEATH OF EDWIN BULLARD
The following on the death of Edwin Bullard is taken from the Tama News, Tama, Iowa
Edwin Bullard, a pioneer citizen of Tama County, passed away Saturday, May 23, at the Medical and Surgical Infirmary, after an illness of about two weeks duration. Previous to being taken to the infirmary, Mr. Bullard had made his home with Mr. & Mrs, Grant Hill in the southeast part of the town.
Edwin Bullard was born in Hyde Park, Vermont, Nov. 4, 1834. During the Civil War he moved to Illinois, and from there came to Iowa. He walked from Tama to Cedar Rapids and enlisted in the Union Army. After the war he returned to Iowa, and soon after married Ann Vorkes Jack-----To this union three children were born, Adlebert, of Riverside, Calif, Sade, deceased, and Emma Bortle, of Tama. Three grandchildren, Gladys, Earl Knode, and Marie Bralton, also survive Mr. Bullard.
Mr Bullard was a thrifty farmer and loyal citizen. He united with the Baptist Church soon after his return from the war. Death came Saturday, May 23d at Toledo, Ohio. A host of friends join the relatives with their condolence and rest their brother's case with the merciful Heavenly Father.
The funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Wednesday, conducted by the Baptist Minister, Rev. O. H. Sisson. Interment was made in the Hayes Cemetery in Otter Creek Township. Mr. & Mrs. Deli Bullard of Riverside, Calif., and Mrs Eliza Casson of Independence were here from out of town to attend the funeral.
