Emanuel E. Bullen
Some genealogies report his name as Emanuel while others report it as Manuel. I would suspect that given his heritage his name was probably Emanuel. However, his death certificate records him as M. E. Bullen. I have also seen his family surname spellen Bullens, Bullins, etc. The spelling here was taken from his death certificate. Some genealogies also report his death due to pneumonia following a dowsing in a creek as part of his wedding celebration. His death certificate however, reports that he died of typhoid fever. In any event, it appears that he did die within a few weeks of his marriage to Miss Orla Dotson.
