The Bullinger Family
Fred Bullinger has been so generous in sharing many photos and stories of
his New Orleans family.  At the bottom of this page, you'll find links to pages
on the site which contain more of Fred's contributions.   Nancy
William P. Bullinger, Sr., Fred's father, during WW I when he served in the US
Army.  This is a postcard he sent to Fred's mom; all he could tell her about his
location was written on the back, "Somewhere in France."
William Bullinger came home from WW I and he and his brother-in-law, John Castaing, started a
business, Bullinger's Ice Delivery, which serviced the French Quarter and Downtown section of the
William P. Bullinger, Sr., left, member of Veterans of Foreign Wars; the image on the right is
Mr. Bullinger's WW I identification tag.
Fred's uncle, A. C. "Mike" Curren,
and his new car, 1920.
Mike Curren, sitting in the chair, was the
Illinois Central Railroad General
Foreman.  The railroad unloaded the less
than boxcar freight (known as LCL); the
clerks would then supervise loading the
freight into trucks for delivery in the city.
Warehouse 7 was located at Poydras and
Loyola, across from New Orleans City Hall.
The warehouse was demolished to make
way for the Superdome.

championships with the New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds.  Both Jim and Kirk played in the
major league.  Trey played at Silliman High School, Clinton, LA and played in the College World
Series with the University of Lafayette, LA.
