  The search for Speck Fulkerson

Added: 17 June 1998

IL Flag

  We received an enquiry from Joe Fulkerson back in March 1997 concerning an Ernest "Speck" Fulkerson of Southern Illinois, the oldest known ancestor in Joe's branch. "Speck" has been on our "Ten Most Wanted" list since December 1997.

  Another Fulkerson, the son of Ernest "Speck" Fulkerson's first cousin, wrote us in June 1998 and solved the case.

  Unfortunately, Joe isn't at the same e-mail address any longer (@wwnet.com), so we're posting this page and hoping he returns to find it.
