Brief Histories of the Earliest Tulsans (con't)
George Bullette came to Tulsa in the latter part of November, 1882, and later built a store at the corner of Boulder avenue and First street. He engaged in the mercantile business for some time and then moved to a farm adjoining the town. Most of his old farm is now (1928) inside the corporate limits and part of it has been platted and sold. It is known as the Bullette addition. Mr. Bullette is a prominent member of the Delaware tribe of Indians and is still living in his addition. For many year. the writer had good times hunting and fishing with this early Tulsan, often thinking now of the deer, turkey, prairie chicken, quail and fish that furnished food on those trips.
