I just ran across this from Roberson County NC. Not only are your Bullards from there but the Baxleys of Appling County are also from there. The Heritage Center in Baxley has a large book about Roberson County that probably has a lot of your Bullards in it. The following is about Lumbee indians who were engaged in the War of 1812. "During the War of 1812 they were enrolled in the militia; and among others, Charles Oxendine, Thomas Locklier, John Drinkwater, Hugh Locklear, William Bullard, Elias Bullard, Richard Bullard, and Stephen Cumboe were in the companies of militia detached from the Robeson regiments for service in that war. (See Muster Rolls Troops of 1812, State Library at Raleigh.)"
