    Marriage 1 Mercy R. FONDA b: 15 OCT 1808 in New York
    • Note: [Henry Bullis (son) died unexpectedly Friday night, as the result of a slight cold, aged ninety-nine years, eight months and eight days. He was very near the century mark. And thus he passed from our community, not only a very aged man, but a man who was all his business life a strong figure in Canton. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at three and the burial was in Fairview, the cemetery that Mr. Bullis took a leading part in securing for Canton. (..) Mr. Bullis was born in Plattsburg. His father was John W. Bullis and his mother Mary Ann Fonda Bullis. The family then consisted of the father and mother and three children, Fonda, Henry and Mercy Ann. It was in 1841 that the parents decided to trek through the great wilderness in New York state to the Valley of the St. Lawrence, for they had heard of its fertility and virgin soil and they had within them the souls of the pioneers, and in those days to move from Plattsburgh to this valley was literally going into the west. And so the family started, loading the household goods into a wagon that was drawn by oxen, and gathering together such stock as could stand the long trip. It was after a long and hard journey that they finally arrived at their destination. Canton, but on the way, at Malone, Mercy Ann had been taken sick and so the mother stayed at Malone, as did Henry, while his father and elder brother, Fonda, came on to their destination. When Mercy Ann had sufficiently recovered to travel the father went to Malone and brought the rest of his family here and they were reunited. (..) Newspaper Canton NY St. Lawrence Plain Dealer, August 30, 1932]
