Bullard, Ward

Bullard, Ward a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Massena, N. Y., Feb. 8,1810. He removed with his parents in 1813 to a farm in New Haven, Vt., where much of his youth was spent in severe manual labor. He joined the Church at the age of sixteen, only attended school winters previous to his seventeenth year, graduated at Middlebury College in 1833, and taught school some years in the state of Georgia, where he entered the itinerancy. He was for one year connected with the Alabama Conference. Owing to sickness and repugnance to slavery he returned North in the spring of 1838 and united with the Troy Conference, took appointments the next four years, then taught school a few years, and again received appointments until 1854, when he inherited his father's farm at New Haven, and thereafter made it his home. He held a supernumerary relation, and only preached occasionally. He died May 21, 1879. Mr. Bullard was a man of untarnished Christian character, an able instructor, and an acceptable preacher. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1880, p. 33.
