Pulliam Genealogy
Researchers:  Michael Pulliam, Angela C. Cornell, Cynthia Leah Pulliam Lutz

The Pulliams may have arrived in Virginia, in the 1600's, aboard the "Hopewell". There are records showing an Edward Augustus Pulliam arriving in Henrico County Virginia on the "Hopewell" around 1636. I have not personally been able to find this record but am still searching.
