Hi,
I have conflicting stories about this ancestor, does anybody have documented info? Would love contact with any relatives!
Thanks,
Barbara

Charles Lesslie Pullen
Born: 5 May 1854 Richmond Virginia
Died: 18 Aug 1927 Panama Canal
Wife Addie Belle Prince?
Born: 11 May 1858 Coahoma, MS
Died: 27 Feb 1901 New Orleans, LA

Son of Benjamin King Pullen. He changed his name after "disgracing" the family.or so I've been told. I think he changed his name to Powell. Anyway.he spent a LOT of time in Central or South American hunting rare orchids. I think he started a conservatory in St.Louis. As a child he went by Lesslie.but I think as an adult he went by Charles. I think he was "buried" in the Panama Canal. I think he lived in New Orleans for a while.
