References & notes

His service from his Compiled Military Service Records,1 via fold3, filed under 48th Mississippi Infantry and 8th CS Cavalry. His presence at Sharpsburg from a petition he and others of his Company signed on behalf of Lieutenant Thomas Lipscomb. Personal details from the US Census of 1860 and 1870.

At the 1860 Census he was living in the home of the very wealthy Lucy A Sharp (52) along with an H. Hardy (19). Bullock was still with Sharp and Hardy in 1870. I don't know how/if these people are related.
