Edwin Bullard Obituary

Vassar, Michigan

Obituary
Milford Times, October 16, 1897:
Edwin A. Bullard, who was well known to all the older residents of Milford and especially of Highland, died at his home at Vassar last Friday night. Mr. Bullard had been for several months a great sufferer from paralysis and his death, although not unlooked for, was none the less lamented by his fellow townspeople by whom he was highly esteemed.
He was born in Commerce, this county, November 10, 1840, and lived previous to the war in Highland township. He served through the war and after its close went to Vassar with the growth and progress of which place he has since been closely identified. He held many local offices and was an active member of the Knights Templar and Grand Army of the Republic.
Mr. Bullard was a brother of Mrs. Andrew Phillips of Fenton and a cousin of Silas Bullard of this place. Another brother, Eugene Bullard of South Dakota, a widow, a grown son and one daughter, Mrs. Henry Lindsley of Highland, also survive him.
