Andrew W. Pulley, a farmer living near American Fork, was born in Alton, Madison county, Illinois, July 10, 1856, a son of William and Sarah (Morris) Pulley. The father was born in England and came to America in 1848, after which he engaged in farming and wood chopping in Illinois. He was a lumber sawyer in England and after making his home for some years in Illinols he went to Florence, Nebraska, in 1857, intending to continue the trip to Utah; but his brother Joseph who came to the new world in 1844, was then living at Nebraska City, Nebraska, upon a farm, and William Pulley decided to remain in that district. There he continued until 1878, when he crossed the country to Salt Lake City and thence made his way to American Fork. He was even then in ill health and was unable to work after reaching American Fork, where he passed away in 1886. He was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and did everything in his power to promote its growth and extend its influence. He had joined the church prior to his emigration to the new world and was presiding eider of a branch conference in England. In the family of Mr. and Mrs. William Pulley were two sons and five daughters: Emma J., Andrew W., Alice E., Susanna, Mary Ann, George H. and Evelyn. Andrew W. Pulley had but limited educational advantages, for his labors were early needed upon the farm and this precluded the possibility of his attending school. After leaving home his first work in Utah was at cutting wood and later he went to Idaho, where he was connected with a railroad track gang as section foreman during the latter part of a two and a half years' period of employment with the railroad company. At the end of that time he came to American Fork, where he now lives, having his home two miles northeast of the town. He bought eighty-four acres of wild land covered with sagebrush and since then has transformed the undeveloped tract into a beautiful garden spot. The place has indeed been made to bloom and blossom as the rose as the result of his close application, unremitting industry and persistency. He has a fine large brick residence, also extensive barns, a large silo and full farm equipment, and in addition to cultivating the fields he successfully raises cattle and sheep. He is likewise interested financially in the American Fork Cooperative Institution and in the Manilia Threshing Machine Company. Farming, however, is his principal occupation and one can scarcely realize, as one looks abroad over his carefully cultivated fields and fine garden, that this was once a district of sagebrush. He raises fruit of all kinds upon his place and his work has been carried forward so energetically and successfully that his farm is one of the most attractive features in the landscape. In 1889 Mr. Pulley was married to Miss Emma L. Smith, a daughter of Oliver Smith, a pioneer farmer and stockman of this section of the state. They have become parents of ten children: Florence Lorene, who is the wife of Bennett Peterson, of Bountiful; Charles, who died at the age of two years and one month; Ruth; Priscilla; Adolphus; John W.; Mary Jane; Laura; Francis G.; and Esther. Adolphus joined the American army as a member of an infantry regiment of the Ninety-first Division and has recently returned from France, where he saw very active service on some of the hardest sectors of the war. He suffered greatly with his feet, having been many days in the trenches when he could not take off his shoes. He was on duty in France and Belgium. Mr. Pulley remains a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in which he has taken active and helpful part and is now a high priest. His political endorsement is given to the democratic party. His fellow townsmen attest the fact that his sterling qualities are many and speak of him in terms of warm regard.

Adolphus Pulley was born on 11 Apr 1896
Adolphus Pulley was 12 years old when Ford puts the Model T car on the market at a price of US$825. Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. It was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated on June 16, 1903. The company sells automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand and most luxury cars under the Lincoln brand. Ford also owns Brazilian SUV manufacturer Troller, an 8% stake in Aston Martin of the United Kingdom, and a 49% stake in Jiangling Motors of China.

Adolphus Pulley was 21 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Adolphus Pulley was 32 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Adolphus Pulley was 43 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II.

The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
