I think you will find that when they refer to the Pullums as being brought to America it simply means that they were sponsored, in a way, to travel with Mr. Clarke. In early days, they said they had paid passage for 'x' number of passengers on a ship. In return for bringing the individuals to America they would be given a certain amount of land. Many times, that land was in turn sold to the passengers. I am a descendent of the early Pullum ancesters and have written a book on our Pullum lineage starting with Thomas Pullum in Madison County, KY.in the late 1700s. Please let me know what info you have on the Pullums after the 1700s. Thanks...
