BULL, MARSHALL, NEWTON posted by Andy Marshall on Friday, November 14, 1997

I am searching for information on the Edmond BULL family. Edmond and his family lived in Henry County during the early 1800's. I believe he and three of this daughters are members of my family. Julia Ann BULL married Benjamin J. NEWTON, Virginia BULL married Francis Joseph MARSHALL, and Mary Lou BULL was a friend of the above MARSHALL family, living with them and probably the mother of some of Francis' children. I have extensive data on the MARSHALL family that I am willing to share for any leads on the Edmond BULL family. Census records indicate that Edmond BULL moved to Henry County from GA. Edmond BULL lived near the above NEWTON family.
