My gr gr grandfather, Gideon Bullis, served with the 37th Iowa Inf. and was a
guard at Rock Island. He died there of meningitis or "brain fever." I think
his daughter, Elizabeth Bullis Barker and her children (her husband, James
Barker, was at war with the 4th Iowa Cav.) were there. I heard they lived in
Davenport for a while. Would there be any record that would pin point where
she was. Also are there photos of the guards??? Gideon Bullis is buried at
the National Cemetery. Coral Barker Allbee
