New York Obituaries - 1899 - Major John Lincoln Bullard
Major John Lincoln Bullard, who represented Essex County in the New Jersey
Legislature, was Secretary of the New York Cotton Exchange, and a member of
the cotton and bagging firm of Bullard & Wheeler of 84 Beaver Street, died on Sunday
at his home, at Short Hills, NJ. Major Bullard returned on Saturday from a
visit to his son, Dr. John Bullard, in Massachusetts, and his health, which failed at
the death of his wife, nee Haskell, in February, 1898, appeared to be greatly improved.
He died very suddenly while talking to friends on the veranda of his house. Major
Bullard was born in Louisiana, in 1841, but was educated in New England, and
was graduated at Harvard in the class of 1861. On Nov 29, 1862, he was appointed
a Captain Commissary of Subsistence, and served a Massachusetts volunteer regiment.
He was mustered out with the rank of Major in 1865. He is survived by his
son and two daughters - Mrs. Charles Dellanoe of New Bedford, Mass., and Mrs.
Louis Bayard, Jr., of Short Hills. Funeral services will be held to-morrow
at Christ Church, Short Hills.
