Transcribed from The Biographical and Historical Record of Wayne and Appanoose Counties Iowa Originally published 1886, Inter-State Publishing Company, Chicago, IL


John S. Bullington, of the firm of Merrick & Bullington, Lineville, Iowa, was born in Hancock County, Illinois, October 23, 1840, a son of Josiah Bullington, a native of Crawford County, Indiana, and an early settler of Hancock County, and also of Iowa. His mother died when he was a child, and he was bound to a man with whom he lived until he was sixteen years old, and in 1851 accompanied him to Davis County, Iowa. In 1857 Mr. Bullington returned to his native county and worked there at the carpenter's trade until after the breaking out of the war of the Rebellion. He enlisted in the defense of his country, and was assigned to Company A, One Hundred and Eighteenth Infantry. He served three years participating in many severe engagements, among these being the battles at Arkansas Post, Champion Hill, Port Gibson, Black River and Vicksburg. The latter part of the war his regiment was mounted and took part in several cavalry raids. After the war he returned to Hancock County, and remained there until the spring of 1881, when he came to Iowa and located in Lineville. Mr. Bullington was married August 12, 1862, to Sarah N. Laundry, daughter of Eli Laundry. They have seven children—Samuel S., Ettie, Ida B., Cora M., Ella, John M. and Mintie E. Samuel is a resident of Hancock County, Illinois, where he is working at the carpenter's trade.
