He spent one year in that state and afterward removed to Colorado, where he was located for ten years, engaged in the business of live stock dealing and auctioneering. In the year 1913 he came to Worland and engaged in farming and in the live stock business together with auctioneering. He also opened a real estate office, which he yet conducts. He has four hundred head of cattle at the present time and he owns four hundred acres of fine farming land which responds readily to the care and labor which he bestows upon it. Another field of industry to which he has directed his labors is that of banking, for he became one of the organizers of the Farmers State Bank. Another field of investment which has claimed his attention is the oil lands and he has become the owner of considerable valuable property of that character in the state. In a word he has extended his efforts over a broad field and his investments have been judiciously and carefully made, bringing to him a substantial return.
In 1899 Mr. Pulliam was united in marriage to Miss Oro G. Garr, a native of California, and to them has been been born a daughter, Vesta Virginia, who is in high school. The parents are members of the Baptist church and fraternally Mr. Pulliam is connected with the Modern Woodmen of America. Politically he is a democrat and is now serving as justice of the peace, in which connection he renders decisions that are strictly fair and impartial and which have won for him “golden opinions from all sorts of people.” He stands for progress and improvement in public affairs as well as along the line of business activity and his cooperation can be counted upon to further many movements for the general good. He does not stop short of the successful accomplishment of his purpose. He possesses a resolute will and untiring industry, which feature strongly in his growing success, and Worland numbers him among those men who are doing much for her upbuilding through the development of the natural resources of the country and the utilization of the business conditions that arise therefrom. It is owing to the efforts of a few courageous frontiersmen who dared to locate in an undeveloped country that the work of progress and improvement has been carried forward. Mr. Pulliam has not only witnessed a wonderful transformation in this section of the state but has largely aided in the labors that have wrought the change that has converted a wild tract into a splendid commonwealth.d and engaged in farming and in the live stock business together with auctioneering.
