|Alexander Scott Bullitt (grandfather) was a native of Prince William County, Virginia, who came to Kentucky in 1783, when about 21 years of age, and purchased a tract of one thousand acres of land lying on what is now the Louisville and Shelbyville turnpike, and called it Oxmoor. This valuable property has been in possesion of the Bullitt family over one hundred years, no part of it having been sold.|
A. S. Bullitt was president of the convention which framed the consitution of Kentucky in 1799, and was the first lieutenant governor under that constitution. In 1785 he married the daughter of Col. William Christian, whose wife was a sister of Patrick Henry of Virginia. Col. Christian came to Jefferson County in 1785 and was killed by the Indians in 1786. He was buried at Oxmoor, the oldest burying ground in Kentucky, where all the descendants of the families who have since died have been "gathered to their fathers." Burying ground is on what was Col. Christian's home, adjoining Oxmoor, and is scrupulously cared for by the family, a permanent fund having been provided for the purpose, and is in the form of a trust in the hands of the Fidelity Trust Co. Governor Bullitt died in 1816.
Cuthbert Bullitt was a Virginia lawyer of renown, and was one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of Virginia at the time of his death.
