Much has been written about nineteenth century presidents, artists and adventurers. Thin and few are the threads that remain to deepen our appreciation of ordinary 19th century home life in rural New... More > England. The story of Henry and Bethia Wheeler Bullard, who farmed and raised a family in Holliston, Massachusetts during the nineteenth century can enlarge and enrich that understanding. Henry and Bethia Bullard were born just after the end of the War of 1812, during a decade that saw canals and roads started, mills built and the pulpit tormented by too many opinions. Teenagers in the 1830’s, during the 1840’s, Henry and Bethia married and started a family and moved back to the Bullard family farm in Holliston. The Bullard family was not famous. They were not celebrated citizens but rather, by the nineteenth century, an ordinary, solidly middle-class, upwardly-mobile farming family, related by marriage to the fringes of famous lives. Part One encompasses the years 1800-1829.< Less
