James Stephens Bulloch (1793 — February 18, 1849) was an early Georgia settler and planter. He was a grandson of Georgia governor Archibald Stobo Bulloch and Senator William Bellinger Bulloch.[1]

He was born in John Elliott and Esther Dunwoody, on December 31, 1817. They had two sons:

  • John Elliott Bulloch (January 1819 — September 1821)[2]
  • James Dunwoody Bulloch (June 25, 1823 — January 7, 1901)

After Hettie died, Major Bulloch married on May 8, 1831 Martha P. "Patsy" Stewart (March 15, 1799 — October 30, 1964), the second wife and widow of Senator Elliott. James had previously courted Patsy in 1817 and proposed to her, though she declined the proposal and later married Senator Elliott. Patsy was the youngest daughter of General Daniel Stewart (1761—1829) and Sarah Susannah Oswald (1770—1807). Sarah's brother Thomas Hepworth Oswald (1760—1790) was the patrilineal great-great-grandfather of Lee Harvey Oswald (1939—1963). James and Patsy had four children:

Irvine was born in Cobb County after they moved from Savannah.[3]

Major Bulloch moved his family in 1839 to north Georgia to partner with Roswell King in establishing a cotton mill. There in what would become Roswell, James Stephens built Bulloch Hall in 1840 with the labor of slaves. Bulloch cultivated cotton as well until his death in 1849. According to the 1850 Slave Schedules, Patsy, again a widow, still held 31 slaves.[4]

Bulloch Hall has been restored and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
