A Lost CANADIAN
Fulkerson Branch

   It is believed the founder of this Canadian branch, Isaac Fulkerson, was born the NJ/NY/PA region about 1776 and moved to Canada about 1800. The few early records concerning Isaac are centered on Ancaster Township in Ontario. A section of this township is known as Jerseyville, probably because it was settled by immigrants from New Jersey, apparently in the decades after the American Revolution. Their moves to Canada may have been induced by economics (low-priced land), and may have had little to do with the politics of that era.

  The one current lead on Isaac is that he may have been the son of Jacob Fulkerson of New Jersey, who was born in 1739. Willard L. Fulkerson of upstate New York attempted to document the Fulkerson family history in that region during the mid-20th century, and left us the following notations about Jacob's children:

Jacob -- m. a Miss Bell - left her and married again
Joseph -- lived in Lasson [a community called Lassen was located along the banks of the Hudson River in the Town of Poughkeepsie, Dutchess Co., New York.]
Isaac -- went to Canada before the war
John -- Died in the line of service
Samuel --

  Some dates below are approximate, due to discrepancies between census, cemetery and family records.  If you can help this branch find its roots, please feel welcome to share your information via e-mail.
