About 1920-? - The Bulmore (Bulemore) family reunions were begun with the descendants of James Bulemore (1816-1894) who had 9 children by two wives. The descendants of the first wife, Matilda Dix (1821-), were born in England. Most of their descendants live in Michigan with a couple of very small branches that have since ended in New York. I'm descended from his second wife, Anna Powers (1827-1910) from Ireland. She bore him 4 children in Western New York including Timothy J. Bulmore. Most of their families are in New York.
1939-1942 - This reunion includes the descendants of Timothy J. Bulmore (1862-1945), son of the above James, and Carrie Melvina Hill (1863-1930). They had 11 children with 3 sons and 5 daughters reaching adulthood. These reunions ended in 1942 due to gas rationing.
1961-Present - The revived Bulmore reunions were organized by their daughter G. Marion Bulmore Hadley and a grandaughter Gladys Bulmore Wiggins while both were living in Buffalo at the time.
