Silas Bullard was the son of Ansel Bullard (1812-1889)and Elizabeth Speer (1820-1891). Silas came from a humble background, but worked hard and was very successful. He attended college - first in Massachusetts and later in Maine, where he studied law. Not long after he became a lawyer, he moved west and in 1871 opened a law office in Menasha, Wisconsin. In addition, he was part owner of the Menasha Press and did editorial work for the paper there - as well as for a number of Chicago papers.
He held a number of positions in the Menasha community. He was Supt. of Schools for six successive terms; he was Mayor of Menasha; he was a county supervisor; he was district attorney; he was city attorney; and he served in the legislature.
Silas was married to Martha A Robey (1848-1926). They had two children (Caroline and Harry).
Silas was heavily involved with public service in Menasha, and had much trust and confidence placed in him in his duties.
