Note for:   William WILSON,    -          Index

Individual Note:   [descendants of edward bull.FTW]

William Wilson was born in 1801 in the "Emerald Isle", on the banks of Loch Erin in Ballyshannon. He immigrated to Canada in 1824. On November 7, 1832, at the age of 31, he married Mary Bull, daughter of Josiah Bull. Together they had six sons and two daughters: Josiah; Alexander; Richard; Hiram; John D.; Thomas C.; Sarah and Mary Ann.
        William was one of the first settlers at Irvine Gore. He secured some land here in 1833, where he built a log shanty, which he and his family lived for five years. Clearing the land, he cultivated it and sowed wheat. Having no gun to frighten away the deer coming to pasture, he would go into the field and throw stones at them.
        When he built his house, all the lumber had to be planed by hand, as there was no factory to do the work. They made all the panel doors, window frames and sashes, as well as the pine timber eavestroughs.

Correction for above statement received from Beverly :
It was Jacob and Lucinda's children (see below) who changed the name to their mother's maiden name.

"An act to change the name of Alvah H. Bull, George W. Bull, Philo Bull, Ransom Bull, John Bull, Russell Bull, Hiram Bull, and Albert Bull:
       Section 1. The people of the State of Michigan enact:
That the name of Alvah H. Bull, George W. Bull, Philo Bull, Ransom Bull, John Bull, Russell Bull, Hiram Bull, and Albert Bull be and the same hereby changed, Alvah H. Bull to Alvah H. Bradley, George W. Bull to George W. Bradley, Philo Bull to Philo Bradley, Ransom Bull to Ransom Bradley, John Bull to John Bradley, Russell Bull to Russell Bradley, Hiram Bull to Hiram Bradley, Albert Bull to Albert Bradley.
       This act shall take effect immediately.

I got this from Hazel Lavello, researcher of Bull/Bradley family tree.

"John Terwilligar came to the district in 1853. He was the first blacksmith to reside here. His wife was Sarah Cooper, daughter of John Cooper of Bloomfield. They had two daughters and one son; all were faithful members of the Methodist Church and did much to help in every way.
