History of Greene County, Pennsylvania


JESSE ULLOM, merchant, Rogersville, Penn.—Among the substantial business men of Rogersville, we take pleasure in mentioning Jesse Ullom, who was born in Greene County June 20, 1836.  He is a son of Daniel T. and Anna (Johnson) Ullom, who were natives of Greene County, where they resided until Mr. Ullom’s death, in October, 1881.  His widow survives him.  This union was blessed with twelve children, nine of whom are living—three sons and six daughters.  On March 29, 1861, Jesse was united in marriage with Phoebe Morris, who was born in this county November 11, 1843.  She is a daughter of Ephraim and Martha Morris, both deceased.  Mr. and Mrs. Morris were the parents of ten children, of whom eight are living.  Mr. and Mrs. Ullom have a family of seven children, four living, viz., Thomas M., Mattie A., John T. and Jesse F.  The deceased are Fannie L. and two infants.  Mr. Ullom has been engaged in farming and merchandising all his life.  He owns forty-seven acres of land, nice property in Rogersville, also a general country store.  In 1881 he was elected to the office of justice of the peace in Center Township, and has been serving in that capacity ever since.  He and wife are active members of the Methodist Protestant Church.
