Bullions, Alexander an Associate minister, was born at Auchtergaven, Scotland, in February, 1779. 'He resolved, when quite young, to be a preacher. He entered the University of Edinburgh in 1798. Here he remained four years, then studied theology for five years under the' Rev. Archibald Bruce of Whitburn, and was licensed by the Associate Presbytery of Perth. In 1806 he came to America, and landed at New York, where he remained some time, and then removed to Albany; from here he went to Cambridge, N. Y., and took charge of a congregation, with which he continued until the close of his life, June 26, 1857. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, IX, iii, 44.
