            James [Edward] Bull was born to Frank and Martha Bull in Wyoming the 2nd of March 1890 {Wyoming was made a State in 1890).  There were three daughters and two sons born to the Frank Bull family:  Gwendolyn, Gertrude, Bessie, Frank Jr. and James E.  In 1900 (Fed Census) the family were living in Lovell, Big Horn County, Wyoming.  In 1910 James was still single and is shown as a partner to Clarence Waln living on Spring Creek, Big Horn County.  He married Claire [Topsy] Buckmaster, daughter of John Buckmaster of Spring Creek area in 1916 in Washakie County (Western States Marriage Index).  By 1920, the couple had two small children:  Goldie (2) and Wesley (8 months).   There son Wesley Bull was killed in a car accident which occurred in 1941 in Washakie County.   They lived in Precinct 2 of Washakie County for a number of years and were back in Ten Sleep ca. 1965.  James Edward Bull passed away in 1975.



Memories et al.  I am sure that I saw Jim Bull sometime and have the distinct impression that he looked a lot like his brother Frank Bull, Jr.  His WW I registration doesnít give detail on Ancestry.com which is unusual.   Recently (April 30, 2013), Lyle Bader, Worland, WY, posted on Facebook a number of pictures and one of them featured Topsy [Claire] Bull and children about 1930ís.  fb
