Orleans County, NY Biographies





Bullard, Chancy, our subject, was born in Gaines, September 25, 1824. His father, William, and his brother, Brigadier, came into Gaines, Orleans County, N. Y., in February, 1812, from Bennington, Vt., with two pair of oxen hitched to a sled, the snow when they arrived in Gaines was three feet deep on level. My grandfather, David Bullard, was born in Dedham, Mass., in 1761; he afterwards moved to Vermont, where he resided until 1816, when he removed to Gaines, N. Y., bringing his family with him; he settled one half miles west of Gaines on north side of Old Ridge road on a farm which had been taken up by his son William; after a few years he moved one and a half miles south on a farm owned by his son Brigadier, where he lived till his death in June, 1832. He married Elizabeth Hadley, and their children were: William, who was born in Linesboro, Cheshire county, N. H., April 10, 1789, and died September 26, 1861. He marred Nellie Loveland, who was born in Windham county, Vt., June 9, 1794, and died December 9, 1864. Their children were: Albert, boru in Gaines, September 15, 1816, and died September 15, 1856; Anson, born February 10, 1820; Olive, born April 1, 1822; Ohauncey, born September 25, 1824; William W. Bullard, born May 26, 1828; John W., born December 17, 1830, died December 9, 1890; David H., born December 3, 1836. Subject's brothers were all educated in common district schools, their style was work more than books and they are all in comfortable circumstances in their old ages. The brothers own at present over 500 acres of as good land as there is in western New York or any other State. Their land lays joining right along on the Old Ridge road situated one mile west of Gaines. Four of those Bullard brothers ran an orchestra of their own and furnished music for the cotillion in their younger days. They originally were Whigs, but after the Republican monopoly party was organized, they voted with the Democrats, as that party was so nearly alike the old Whig party. Our subject married Lucy Leonard, of Albion, N. Y., April 24, 1867, who died March 31. 1891, aged fifty four years. [Written-by Chancy Bullard].
