Looking for the Bullis family in the Detroit Michigan area. My father was Roy Lee Bullis, his father was Frank Nelson Bullis, married to Nellie Whitaker(?). My father and mother divorced when I was 2 years old (1958) and I have lost track of my fathers side of the family.

Have done a little research on my husband's BULLIS line in Livingston Co., MI. We have a Nelson that was a brother to his grandfather, a C. Nelson who was his gr-grandfather's 1st cousin and a Frank who was his grandfather's 1st cousin. I don't have any other info than names. Only just recently obtained the names through another researcher. I live near Livingston Co. and could do some searching as I have time if you come up with anything else you want checked out. Feel free to email me at and I would be glad to give you the Bullis names and relationships that I have.

My husband's maternal grandmother descended from Daniel Bullis, born 1764 NY. One of Daniel's grandsons was Merinus Bullis, born
1820 Jefferson Co., NY. His son, William Mercer Bulis (note the spelling change) was born 1854 St.Lawrence Co., NY. He was married in 1876 in Coopersville, Ottawa, MI to May Platt, who was born in that town. They had 3 children (George, Earl Carrie) who were all born in Polkton, Ottawa, MI. May died there in 1886 and William took his children to Siskiyou Co., CA. Anyone share any of this line?

My father was born, I believe, in the general Detroit area in 1900. His name was Murl Lyman Bullis (I was a junior, name later changed after the divorce from my mother, Ruth). My grandfather, who I knew in the '40's, lived in Flint, Michigan. His first wife, my grandmother, was named Dora. Her other son was Fred J. Bullis. She had a sister, Bertie or Birdy, who was married, possibly in the 20's, to James Taylor - I think they had a son named Lee. I lost all touch with my father and his family, don't know my grandfather's first name. Any help would be appreciated!!
