He was born January 22, 1894 in Magoffin County, Kentucky, died April 22, 1937, and is buried in Jellico Cemetery in Magoffin County, Kentucky.

Notes: Leander "Lee" Gullett was the brother of "America "Coon" Gullett and Christie Gullett.

It appears that Malvania Howard/Arnett was the daughter of Rhoda Howard, who died in 1869, and that Malvania was raised by Russell and America Arnett after Rhoda married Catlett Arnett. As a result - and because Russell was reportedly her father - her name has also been seen as Malvania Arnett. All of the evidence to support this follows.

On findagrave.com, there is a paragraph that says "Melvina was born in Kentucky the daughter of Russell Arnett and Rhoda Howard. On October 7, 1874 she married Christopher 'Christy' Gullett. Their children are; America (Gullett) Conley, Jane (Gullett) Amos Gullett [sic], Martha (Gullett) Cole, Oscar Gullett, Lee Gullett, Haden Gullett, Christy Gullett and Wiley Bud Gullett."

According to one Kentucky marriage record transcript, Christy Gullett (age 21) married Malvana Howard on October 1, 1874 in Magoffin County. The minister is listed as Riley Howard. According to another, Christy Gullett married Malvana Howard on October 7, 1874 in Magoffin County at the home of Russell Arnett. The witnesses were Wiley Arnett and Wiley Gullett, and the minister was Riley Howard.

According to one Kentucky marriage record transcript, Catlett Arnett received a license to marry Rhoda Howard on November 7, 1861 in Magoffin County.

According to Kentucky marriage record transcripts, Lee Gullett married Mauda [sic] Hill on April 27, 1915 in Morgan County.

According to Kentucky death records, Rhoda Arnett died in October of 1869 in Magoffin County from typhoid fever at the age of 38.

According to her death certificate, Malvania Arnett Gullett died March 7, 1946 in Mine Fork, Magoffin County, Kentucky, from pneumonia. Also on this certificate, her birthplace is listed as Kentucky, her age as 94, her marital status as widowed, her husband as Christy Gullett, her parents as Russ Arnett (b. Kentucky) and Betsy Minix (b. Kentucky), the informant as Martha Cole [Malvania's daughter married John Cole] of Mine Fork, the burial place as Mine Fork, and the doctor as Grant Rice [Ulysses Grant Rice].

A photo of her headstone shows that Manda Gullett lived from 1898 to 1952.

According to her obituary, Manda Hill Gullett (age 53), daughter of Joe and Lina Hill, had been a resident of Mine Fork, Kentucky, for 30 years prior to her death. She was born in Relief, Kentucky, died suddenly at home from a heart attack on May 31, 1952, and was buried in Jellico Cemetery. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lee Gullett, in 1937. She was survived by 4 sons, Burl Gullett (of Ashland, Kentucky), Roy Gullett (Fairborn, Ohio), Joe Gullett (Fort Campbell, Kentucky), and Hade Gullett (Fort Knox, Kentucky); 3 daughters, Ethel Williams (Win, Kentucky), Belvis Wright (Silverhill, Kentucky), and Tennie Gullett (Mine Fork, Kentucky), 3 brothers, Billy Hill (Ashland), Eddie Hill (Relief), and Jesse Hill (Ashland); and 1 sister, Maggie Cantrell (Ashland).
