"ROBERT W. BULLARD, postmaster of this little town which bears his name, also conducts a general merchandise store at Bullards, Coos County, Ore., and oversees work on his ranch adjoining the town. He was born on November 26, 1857, in Winneshiek County, Iowa, and comes of good old stock. His paternal great grandfather was among the first settlers in St. Louis and laid out what is still known as Bullard's addition to that city. He was also a soldier in the war of 1812. Mr. Bullard's grandfather was a native of the state of New York and was a merchant by occupation."

"Robert W. Bullard attended the district school and afterward remained at home until he had attained his majority. He then took up the occupation of teaching and was occupied thus for eight years. He next engaged in salmon fishing and packing where he now lives, and has made that town his home ever since. In 1892 he took up general merchandising and built a good two story frame store building and also a residence nearby. As before mentioned, Mr. Bullard has a ranch of one hundred and thirty acres close to Bullards, and oversees the general farming and stock-raising. Melinda A. Hamblock became Mr. Bullard's wife, April 3, 1883. She is a native of Oregon and has had six children, all of whom are still at home. They are as follows: Warren W., Pearl A., John Chester, Lawrence, Christina and Frank O. Mr. Bullard takes an active interest in politics. He is a Republican and has served as justice of the peace for four years, as well as having held other minor offices. He has been postmaster for the past eight years and is thoroughly trusted by all. He is a member of the Woodmen of the World, and is considered one of the representative men of his section."
