1810 Reward of Merit for Francis Bullock (see text for possible alternative spellings) of Cornish, New Hampshire

1810 Handmade Reward of Merit for student Francis Bullock of Cornish, New Hampshire, signed by instructor S. [or possibly N.] Wright and dated February 17, 1810.  Variant spellings could be Francis Bulloch, Francis Balloch or Francis Ballock.

  From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections requested:

There was a Francis Bullock in Cornish, New Hampshire, in Sullivan County, in the 1830 Census, possibly the Francis who received the award.  And a Francis Bullock in the 1860 Census in Charlestown, New Hampshire, also in Sullivan County, a farmer, along with Mary, a housekeeper, possibly his wife, and a 14 year old Mary. 

The Instructor, Mr. or Ms. Wright, is another mystery.  

If you have a theory as to the identities of the student and teacher, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
