Henry Bullard, Millis, MA - 1799


In
Memory of 
Mr. Henry Bullard
who died
April 30, 1799

Prospect Hill Cemetery, Millis, Massachusetts

Here is some information about Henry from Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of Worcester County, Massachusetts.  I have not independently verified the information.
 

Born in 1723, Bullard was 55 when he enlisted to fight in the Revolutionary War. It's strange that the book doesn't mention his death date.  However, Vital Records of Medway, Massachusetts to the year 1850 includes this:


The gravestone photograph above does hintingly show the age at the very bottom of the photo but it is hidden by grass.

Bullard was a very common old family name in the Medway area of Norfolk County, Massachusetts.
