We think he is the son of William and Lydia KELLOGG BULKLEY who
moved to Onondaga County before 1800 from Dalton, Berkshire County, MA.
They had moved to MA from CT to live on land willed to them by
Lydia's father Aaron KELLOGG.. We know that Lydia and William had three
girls, Lydia, Lucy and Clarissa. Christopher was born about 1775 in CT but
I have not been able to find a birth record.
I have much information about land purchased in Onondaga County
during the years between 1800 and 1850. The land was all sold and
Christopher's son Ralph BULKLEY who was born 1804 in Onondaga County , his
wife Betsey HALLOCK and their 8 children moved to Lake County, IL
William BULKLEY and Christopher BULKLEY are both in the NY 1810
census. In 1820 only Christopher is listed. In 1830 Christopher and his
son Ralph who is now married and has two sons are listed. In 1840 only
Ralph is listed with 6 sons and 2 daughters.
I have checked the Jacobus BULKLEY genealogy and a William is
listed, but no further information is given. We find no death records for
William, Lydia or Christopher in NY or CT or MA. There are no wills
recorded for any of them.
Any suggestions or connections would be greatfully received.
