RICHARD BULL, son of Daniel Harlow Bull and Mary Ann Board, was born in the homestead at Campbell Hall, the
house being built previous to 1800; no record can be found of anyone having occupied it but the Bull family. Mr.
Bull's late school education was at Farmer's Hall and Montgomery Academy, two years in each. He has always been
identified with farming and is a member of Hamptónburgh Grange No. 950, and also a member of National Grange,
and also of the New York Mill Exchange. He is one of the trustees of the Burial Hill Cemetery Association at Hamptonburgh.
The Bull family have held an annual picnic for forty years on the one hundred acre tract granted to William Bull
and Sarah Wells by Christopher Denn, who were the first settlers in Orange County. Mr. Bull was treasurer of the
picnic for a number of years, and president for one term.
He married Annie Wells, of Newburgh, whose mother was the daughter of Mehetable Bull, and her father was Captain
William Bull, who was an officer in the Revolutionary War. Their one child, Charles Wells Bull, is a wholesale
jeweler in Maiden Lane, New York City. He is the sixth generation on his father's side from the first William,
and seventh on his mother's.
