Herschel Bullen

Contributor: Jagrah Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

Herschel Bullen Biography of Herschel Bullen Herschel Bullen, son of Newell Bullen and Clarissa J. Atkinson, was born June 10, 1840. The parents of Herschel were converted to the LDS Church in Maine. They boarded the ship Brooklyn with the Sam Brannan Company, when Herschel was only six years of age. They were bound for San Francisco, via a trip around the southern tip of South America. The trip took six months from New York to San Francisco. The family remained in California a short time, then joined the saints in Salt Lake City. Herschel’s father died when Herschel was only seventeen, and the burden of responsibility fell upon him to care for the family. At the age of twenty-one, he moved to Richmond, Utah. The next year, in 1862, he moved his mother and brothers there. Herschel’s first house was a two-room, dirt roof, log cabin located on 50 South 100 East, comprising one-fourth of a city block and affording ample room for a lawn, orchard, garden, farm buildings, and corrals. His first farm was purchased by Warranty Deed from Ariah C. Brower on May 3, 1852 and covered 35 and ½ acres of choice irrigated land. It was about 100 rods south of the present North Cache High School on the County Road. Herschel was essentially a farmer and a breeder of fine horses and cattle, yet his career was by no means confined to these pursuits. Prior to his first marriage, he worked in the mines at Bingham, Utah during the winters In 1864, a Dramatic Company was organized. Members included Herschel Bullen. They worked long and hard to memorize their lines and satisfy their audiences. They brought enrichment to the lives of their fellowmen without a cent. He was instrumental in the construction of a new meeting house for the Richmond Ward. He also promoted recreation, especially dancing. He was one of the most popular callers. The wealthy mining centers of Montana needed all sorts of merchandise, and they were eager to pay for transportation costs. In the early 1870's, C.G. McClay and Company built warehouses in Corrine and set up freight agencies. The brisk trade with Montana moved Herschel Bullen and his brothers to action. They saw in it a good chance to enlarge their finances. Herschel was a breeder of fine horses and a good mechanic who could fix anything. He was not awed by difficulties, so the Bullen brothers, with their means at hand, began assembling covered wagons, teams and harness, and general equipment, preparatory to enter into the freighting business. Each trip required six weeks of time. Temptations were spread in the path of the freighters. At strategic points along the way, liquor, gambling, and easy women were available, and some freighters spent money too generously in such places or went on an extravagant binge up in Butte, which was notoriously wide open. The Richmond freighters, however, saved for future investment the money they earned the hard way. The Bullen brothers continued freighting operations until better opportunities were offered them in the construction of railroads.

In 1868, the eastern end of the Union Pacific had reached western Wyoming, and Utah men went to work on it for a short time, with teams, scrapers, and dump carts. Herschel went to Kansas City and St. Louis, from March 28 to April 18, 1881, and purchased sixty shaved tail Missouri mules for $7,800. The freight charges were $1,300, making the total cost $9,100. He formed a partnership with Samuel A. Hendricks, and their company was responsible for the construction of a part of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad in eastern Utah. They also worked on sections of the Oregon Short Line in Utah and Oregon. He, with his brothers John and Newell, were among the early freighters, with their ten and twelve mule teams, each with three wagons. With an eye to the future, he began to build up the savings he needed to establish the kind of home he wanted and get the large estate he eventually owned in the area. With his earnings, he eventually purchased 600 acres of farming and pasture land west of Richmond. His big hospitable home became a landmark in Richmond. Herschel was appointed to the State Land Board in the late 1890's by Governor Heber M. Wells. He served as a school trustee in Richmond for many years, and he was responsible for many fine improvements in education in Richmond. Herschel married (1) Malinda Knapp on March 28, 1868, but this marriage ended in divorce. They had one child, Lorenzo H. He married (2) Emma Boston Gibbs on February 8, 1870 in Salt Lake City, but she died on October 1, 1873 leaving two small children, Herschel Jr. and Nellie. He married (3) Mary Josephine Whittle on December 20, 1876 in the Logan Temple, Cache County, Utah. She was nineteen years of age, and he was fourteen years older. But, Mary was mature and devoted, and she became a perfect help mate for him. They were the parents of seven children, Roy, Pearl, Cyrus, Emma, Asa, Bryant, and Edith. He had his cross to bear and he bore it bravely. Rather frequent and very severe pains in the stomach and other parts of his body caused him much distress, but he recovered from each attack regularly and went on as usual with his supervision of his farm. But, the pain he was destined to endure was a severe tax on his courage and fortitude during the last years of his life. In his last year, 1910, he had reasons sufficient to make him well satisfied with the goals he had set and the progress his family had made. In June of the same year, Professor Willard S. Langton (son-in-law) was leaving for a mission in New York. A family reunion was held before his departure, and Father Bullen enjoyed the event very much. A few days later, on Sunday June 26th, Herschel, Jr. and Roy drove up to Richmond for a family dinner, had a pleasant visit with their father, and left in the evening with a feeling that all was well with their father, who appeared to be in good health. In a pleasant frame of mind, he went to bed that Sunday night and slept until 1:30 A.M. Monday morning, when he woke up with a terrible pain in his stomach. Since the attach was different from any other attacks he had suffered, he asked his family to send for Dr. Adamson, his favorite family doctor. But, before the physician could arrive, he made one or two slight struggles and passed away. The heart that had responded so often before, was unable to meet the last attack. At the bedside of Father Bullen were Mother Josephine, Edith, Cyrus, Asa, and Bryant, hushed and reverent, realizing that the master link in the family chain was broken. Herschel had made a request of his family to hold his funeral service in the home he loved. Simple and unassuming, he asked for a simple, genuine funeral with a few words of appreciation from his closest friends. Acting upon his request, the service was held in the Bullen home in the afternoon of June 29, 1910. All the rooms in the home had been beautifully decorated and thrown open to the large audience that gathered to honor a great citizen. But, so large was the number of friends, that the service was held on the spacious lawn outside.

Herschel Bullen was born on 10 Jan 1840
Herschel Bullen was 20 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Herschel Bullen was 21 years old when Abraham Lincoln is elected as the 16th President of United States. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Herschel Bullen was 40 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Herschel Bullen was 47 years old when Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show opens in London. William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman. He was born in Le Claire, Iowa Territory, but he lived for several years in his father's hometown in Toronto Township, Ontario, Canada, before the family returned to the Midwest and settled in the Kansas Territory.
Herschel Bullen was 52 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera.

Herschel Bullen was 64 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Herschel Bullen died on 27 Jun 1910 at the age of 70
