SKETCH OP THIS HISTORIC
FAMILY RECENTLY PUBLISH
ED IN THE COURIER SOME
FACTS ABOUT THE CRAVEN
FAMILY ALSO GIVEN
John Bulla, the younger brother of
Daniel Bulla, of whom I wrote a few
weeks ago, married a Miss Hussey, I
think. From that union were bont
five children: three girls and two boy.,,
one daughter was married to Bran
son Lamb, I do not remember thrh
children, if any. Another daughter
was married to Dr. W. H. H. Connor.
They had several children, but I losi
sight of them during the war, but
have heard that they are doing fair'y
well. Eliza, the other daughter, was
married to Dr. John Moss, who ii '
on Back Creek. There were three
(laughters born to that union.
Miss Eugenia, the oldest daughter
was married to John McCain, son of
the late Hugh McCain, who at o
time was clerk of the court of Ran
dolph county. They had but one chil'
James H. McCain who now lives in
Asheboro. Mrs. McCain was postmis
tress at Asheboro 42 years. She
held the office longer than any one
else in Randolph 'county.
Miss Fannie, 'the second daughter
was married to B. B. Bums, wro now
lives in Asheboro. Mr. and Mrs.
Burns had quite ttn interesting famr
of children. The oldest son, A.
Buns, is a conductor on the Soutfc
em Railroad running "between Asht-
boro and High Point, and 'has heVd
the place for twenty-five yvars. He
was a candidate for sheriff of Ran
dolph county, but was defeated in'fihe
primary, by a fraction of a vote. H

terms, and who is ww managing

James R. Bulla, the oldest son of
John Bulla, a sketch of whose lif
from boyhood to old agw was publish
ed in The Courier two -weeks ago, was
what we call n self-made nun. H
never waited for some one lse to
vote special tn to get graue'4 school;
tr educate him. and with a "far-seeing
lew-aw--thtit an education was not
worth 'but little to a man who attend
eVI chanl on Ihe sweat of -anothers
brow. He wanted an honest educa
tion. 1 have heard him lecture of
morning in school to us boy, and he
told us not to depend on sme one
eh,e, but study by th light tif pine
knots, grub, split ran11, do any kind
of work rather than wait for chances.
For a boy who lolls around and waits
for chances hafi just ah well sit down
in the pasture with a bucket between
hm knees ar.d wait for old "white
face" to back np to b milked as to
wait for an industrious teacher to
cram knowledge in his cranium;
work, was his advice.
Mr. Bulla would relate humorous
incidents, among others was thw say
ing: "it is owing which way the dr.
fan;" He saifl that raying orip-i
nated on Back Creek by Dr. SJarna
Nixon. He said that Dr. Nixon early
one morning visited a patient, and
during the time he was examining the
patient, the good wife was kneading
dough preparing his breakfast; h
went to the cookrooni to give her 'in
structions about the medicine, she in

from New Jersey, at least she was a
Northern lady, and a sister to Mrs.

Geo. was a stout looking boy when
the family left Asheboro, but I flu
ot remember seeing him since. i
kave heard that he wa8 a noble loou
ing young man. I do have a faint
recollection of hearing of his wit and
sharp, sayings, after the style of tn
Bullae. He was at one time a mem
ber of the senate from Davidson. At
that session there was a school bill
introduced. George, in a speech on
vie mu, among other language said:
"that tfce bill was too hard to under
ataui; that he represented the most
ignorant county in North Carolina,
and his people would like to have more
explicit information. At that time a
descendant of Ham who represented
Edgecombe county, came to hin
