Bulman Family Reunion held July 15

The 60th annual Bulman reunion was held Sunday, July 15 at the Eitzen Community Center in Eitzen, MN. A noon potluck dinner was enjoyed by descendants of James and Elizabeth Bulman of Little Thetford, England (70 miles north of London). The five Bulman ancestors who came to America from Little Thetford were Thomas, William, George, Mary and John. A sailing ship took them from Liverpool, England to New Orleans, LA then upriver to Evansville, IL. They stayed there approximately five years before driving horse and wagons to

English Bench near Dorchester and settling there around the hill called “The Elephant”.

President Bruce Bulman of Caledonia, MN led the business meeting following the meal. This year, 50 persons were in attendance.   Grace Bulman and Debbie and Brad Harguth set up for the meal. They will continue next year by setting up and making the future reservation of the center. Laina Ford and Cheri Wiedenmann Francik were at the registration table.
