Born at Hammond River, New Brunswick he began his working career in the employ of Keator & Thorne's merchantile establishment on Prince William Street in Saint John. Later he became a clerk and writer in the law office of Duncan Robertson, a noted barrister in Saint John. He was later found guilty of stealing from local stores including from the store of his previous employer, Keator and Thorne and was sentenced to two years in the Saint John jail. In 1842 he turned up in Dryden, New York and his criminal life took to an ever more sinister path culminating in murder but not before in 1869, he presented his theory of language origins "The Method of Languages" to the American Philological Association. Rulloff authored the book, "Method in the Formation of Language." thought by many to be a worthy work on the subject. His brother William Herman Rulofson (September 27, 1826 November 2, 1878) became a successful photographer, who along with his partner, H. W. Bradley, was considered one of the leading photographers in the city of San Francisco Rulloff's hanging was the last public execution held in New York.Rulloff's final words were "Hurry it up! I want to be in hell in time for dinner."
