October 13, 1852 - April 29, 1892

Thomas C. Pullig, general merchant, Waldo, Ark. A native-born resident of this county, his birth occurring in 1852, Mr. Pullig is at present engaged in general merchandising in Waldo, and is an enterprising, thorough man of business. His father, Joseph T. Pullig, was born in South Carolina, and emigrated to Ouachita County, Ark., by overland route in 1845, when there was but two buildings in what is now Camden. He was overseer on a plantation twelve miles south of that town, and there remained until 1853, when he moved to what is now Columbia County, being among the early settlers of that county. He was married in Ouachita, to Miss Margaret Elliott, a native of South Carolina, who died in 1867. They were the parents of seven children - four sons and three daughters - all living at the present time. The father is still living, and makes his home in Columbia County. Thomas C. Pullig, the eldest of the above mentioned children, was reared in that county, but received the principal part of his education since he was twenty-one years of age. He was married February 10, 1881, to Miss Alexzena Bulger, a native of Columbia County, and to them have been born three children: Edna, Lucy and Dwight. Mr. Pullig first engaged in merchandising at Macedonia, Columbia County, in 1880, and at the end of four years, came to Waldo, where he has since made his home. He carries a general line of mercantile goods valued at about $4,000, and is doing a live business. He first started with a $1,200 stock, making the money on the farm previous to engaging in the business. He has held the office of justice of the peace of Buena Vista Township for four years, and in his political views affiliates with the Democratic party, casting his first presidential vote for S. J. Tilden. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and his wife is a member of the Baptist Church. Mr. Pullig worked as deputy assessor in this county for six years. He is an influential citizen, and is highly respected. (Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Southern Arkansas - Goodspeed Publishing Company - 1890)
