George Harrison Bullard 1785-1827
George H. Bullard was born in Novenber of 1785, the child of Reuben and Fannie Davis Bullard. His mother is presumed to have died by the time of his father's death, in 1797 and he and his siblings lived with his maternal grandfather, James Davis, until his death in 1808. George is mentioned in James Davis's will.
George married Judith Rollow, the daughter of Archibald and Ann Jett Rollow, of King George County, Virginia, and they are to be found on the 1820 King George County census with their family of 3 boys and 4 girls. George died, intestate, in 1827, at the age of only 42, so it must have been a unexpected death, and his wife, Judith, appeared in orphan court in July of 1827, seeking the guardianship of her children; at this time mothers were not "assumed" to be the automatic guardian of their children at the death of their husband, and orphan courts made the decision of guardianship.
King George County Order Book 12, pg. 51 July 1827 Ann, Polly and Caroline Bullard, orphans of George H. Bullard did come into court and make choice of Judith Bullard for their guardian and the court doth appoint the said Judith Bullard guardian of Lucy, Reubin James, Jane and William Bullard also orphans of George Bullard deceased who together with William Rollow her security intend unto and acknowledge a bond in the penalty of $500 conditioned according to law.
It is to be assumed that the William Rollow who appeared with Judith was her brother, and namesake for one of her children.
George and Judith's children were;
