Abigail E. Burris married Hezekiah Bull. They raised a large family of at least eleven children there, first in Green and later Union townships. Their children included Marietta, Chandler E., Emily J., William W., Clara F., Hosea A., Lorena E., Minnie A., Eva, Effie, and Ernest Guy.
Mrs. Abigail E. Bull departed this life at her home near Brock, Mo., Dec. 2, 1897. Abigail E. Burris was born in Marion Co., Indiana, March 12, 1830. She was married April 4, 1850, to Hezekiah Bull in Highland Co., Ohio, and moved to Scotland Co., Mo., in August 1850, where she has since resided. She was the mother of four sons and seven daughters. The husband, three sons, five daughters, seventeen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren are living to mourn her loss. Her graciousness of manner and noble example have endeared her to a wide circle of friends. The sweetness and purity of her life was such that, to her family, she was bound by sacred and most precious cords of love. To her neighbors she was a most beloved friend and tender sympathizer, ever ready to lend a helping hand or do a kindly act. The memory of her friendship is a choice gift which they cherish. She had a rare faculty of winning and holding the hearts of children, gently leading their minds into true and better channels. Her blessed influence has been felt far and near, and many hearts thank God that she lived. The deceased was a firm believer in the Universalist faith, and lived a life that reflected the beauties of this liberal religion. Funeral services were held at Brock by Dr. C. Elwood Nash, president of Lombard University, Galesburg, Ill. The remains were interred in the cemetery near the church.
