Frances "Fanny" Bullitt Bullett Bulet Bullock (sic) b 1756

I am looking for the parents of Frances "Fanny" Bullett (sic). She married Isaac Calvert in MD probably...possible other states are DE PA VA. They moved to and lived in Greene Co PA 1798 and after. Isaac was b c 1742 - 1750. Fanny was born 1756 and her tombstone is likely the Frances Calvert in Eagle Twp Cemetery in Boone County IN.

It appears that her mother is a Bulet (sic) and buried in the Old Blacksville Cemetery, Blacksville, WV which would have been Monongalia Co VA at the time. It is a very old crude tombstone. This may be Frances Grandmother also. The surname of the mother or grandmother might be Karg, Cart, Cars, Gars Gart(h), etc.

A news article in 1881 of grandson John D Calvert (b1804) stated that his Great grandmother was a Bullett who arrived in the colonies her daughter born on the german vessel but the point of origin is unknown. I would have to say this vessel would have arrived in the Colonies 1700-1760, but likely I would think, about 1750.

If this surname or any derivation rings a bell....let me know. My first thought was the Frances of Cuthbert...wrong birth year for Frances.

My family thinks the surname Bullitt, the Old blacksville Cemetery has a tombstone Faney Bulet which bolsters the above search. Others have found evidence that her name was Bullock.

Thanks for the help.

David
