John W. Bull, farmer, section 32, Ustick Township, is the son of Abraham and Betsey (Wolcott) Bull, who were born respectively in Vermont and New York, and who were the parents of four children,-John W., Benjamin, Elzina and Lyman. The oldest son was born April 26, 1822, in Watertown, Jefferson Co., N.Y. Until he was 15 years of age he attended the common schools, and since that time he has been engaged in farming most of the time. In July, 1854, he came to Whiteside County, fixing his residence in Ustick Township. He owns about 166 acres of land and has improved 125 acres.

In political faith he is not the adherent of any party; he has held several official positions, and is a member of the Masonic Order.

Mr. Bull has been married three times. Huldah Wilson, of Orange Co., N.Y., became his wife May 22, 1849. She was born July 13, 1827, in Jefferson Co., N.Y., and became the mother of four children, Ellen M., Wilson B., Bion B. and Adela B. She died July 6, 1863, in Ustick Township. Mr. Bull was a second time married, in Ustick Township, to Philena Gordon. She was born in Lewis Co., N.Y., and died Feb. 12, 1874, leaving three children,-Benjamin, Abraham and Ezra. Mr. Bull was again married May 19, 1877, in Fulton, Ill., to Isabella Gatton, a native of Carroll Co., Ill., where she was born Dec. 15, 1851. Of the last marriage three children have been born, named Charles J., George S. and Fred W.
