His parents were Samuel W Gullett and Judith Bays that were married 10/23/1856 in Morgan Co., KY. Samuel was the son of James Francis, Frank, or Franklin Gullett that married Martha May on 2/15/1836 in Morgan Co., KY. Martha's parents were Caleb May and Margaret/Margaretta Patrick. A James M is listed with Samuel & Judith on the 1860 census of Magoffin Co., KY. Samuel's wife Judith (Juda) remarried after Samuel's death and James is listed with Juda/Judy/Judith and her husband Richard (Parey) Perry on the 1870-1880 census. James is listed as a Gullett on the 1870 census and as a Perry on the 1880 census. James M's siblings that can be deduced were Henry Harrison Gullett, William S, Samuel F, and John E Gullett. Judith/.Juda married Richard Perry on 12/22/1868 in Magoffin Co., KY. Hope this helps.
