Kendall my executor to sell all my personal property after my death as soon
as circumstances will allow, and after adjusting and paying what I may owe,
then holding each begater to account for my property I may have advanced to

all equal in the distribution which they shall have accounted for any
property I may have advanced upon any previous occasion.

Hi Raymond!

Welcome to the forum! I'd love to help you with finding more information about Lawson Pullen. Here's what I can tell you in general, to start, and if you have any further questions or would like to discuss anything you see, please feel free to post and either Susan or myself will get back with you.

Lawson Pullen was the son of James Graves and Charlotte Jenkins Pullen. He was born in 1822, and from what it appears, may have been a twin, as records I've found indicate that he had a brother, Warner Pullen, born the same year.
He married Lucinda Clark (b. 1829 in Culpeper Co., VA - d. 1897 in Jackson, Rappahannock, VA), on 29 October 1846 in Rappahannock Co., Virginia. They had the following children:

Mary Frances  b. July 1849
George Washington  b. 22 August 1851
Eliza Ann b. either 1849 or 1851
Sarah Catherine b. March 1854
James Lawson b. April 1856
Julia E b. 1864
Daniel Clarke b. 1870

There is a military record I was able to locate that shows Lawson Pullen served as a private in the CSA, 34th Virginia Militia, Company C, during the Civil War. This militia was started in Culpeper County, Virginia, and several Pullen men served in it, too. Among the ones in Company C was his brother,  Pendleton Pullen, His brother, Warner, served in the 34th Virginia Militia as well, but he was in A Company.

Lawson Pullen is said to have died in Jackson, Rappahannock, Virginia, but I haven't been able to find a death date, nor gravestone, as yet.

I hope this helps you with some of the information you are looking for, and if you have any more questions, just post and we'll do what we can to help. :)
