Anne Tuttle Jones Bullard was the granddaughter of the widow of Captain Isaac Davis, who died at the Battle of Concord Bridge and was one of the first men killed in the Revolutionary War. Anne married Rev Artemas Bullard on June 2, 1829. Artemas Bullard was a prominent clergyman in St Louis who died in a train crash in 1855. His grave is marked by an imposing monument. Anne wrote several fiction books, the first of which was published in 1830 when she was only 22. At this date it was frowned upon for ladies to write books so the fiction books are signed with a nom de plume. The books she wrote are;The Stanwood Family; or, The History of the American Tract Society 1830; Louisa Ralston; or what can I do for the heathen? 1831; The Reformation; a True Tale of the Sixteenth Century 1832; Little Aimee, the persecuted child: to which is added The frightful story 1833; The wife for a missionary 1835. In 1852 Anne wrote a travel book called Sights and Scenes in Europe, about her experiences when she accompanied Artemas to the World Peace Conference in 1850. This book was signed Mrs A T J Bullard. Anne was related by marriage to Harriet Beecher Stowe, as Harriet's brother the famous preacher Rev Henry Ward Beecher later married Artemas Bullard's younger sister Eunice Bullard. Thus Anne may well have been an inspiration for Harriet to commence writing. Another author in the family was a younger brother of Artemas called Asa Bullard.
