Believe it or not, there has only been one boat, ship, or vessel registered with the name Bulloch County. It started out its career as just a number: L(anding) S(hip) T(ank) landing craft #509, part of the LST 491 class of transport vessels built for the United States Navy at the beginning of World War Two. This particular vessel was built at the Jeffersonville Boat and Machine Company in Jeffersonville, Ind., in October of 1943.
