Ohio's native residents were killed or driven out by 1800, making the territory safe for civilization and attractive for immigration. At least four Fulkerson branches moved to Ohio from New Jersey and New York between 1810 and 1840. Each branch is linked backed to ancestors on other pages in the Fulkerson Genealogies section.
One additional and eventually very sizable branch led by brothers Benjamin and Richard Fulkerson came to Ohio from Virginia, and is the subject of an "unattached branches" page.
Benjamin FULKERSON....bapt. 11 Nov 1753 at the Cranbury Presbyterian Church, Somerset Co., NJ, listed as the son of "Philip Fulkert." He was a grandson of Philip FULKERSON of Somerset Co., NJ and the son of another Philip. [see note] He appeared on the 1778 New Jersey tax rolls, living at Bedminster in Somerset Co. He reportedly died in 1797 at age 44 in Loudoun Co., Virginia. Little else is known about him, except that he was the progenitor of a large Ohio Fulkerson branch. His six known children and many descendants included:
- Philip FULKERSON.....b. ca. 1778
- Josiah FULKERSON.....ca. 1780-29 Oct 1835, b. in PA per son Gabriel's information in the 1880 Census, m. Margaret GHEEN (b. ca. 1789 in PA), on 13 Aug 1804 in Loudoun, Co., VA, apparently moved to Ohio by 1811.
- Amy FULKERSON....b. ca. 1800, m. Henry WARNER on 20 Oct 1825 in Muskingum Co., OH
- William FULKERSON....b. 1807 in VA per 1850 Census, he is placed here by process of elimination. By unconfirmed reports, he m. Martha FORD (b. in England ca. 1810) on 31 Dec 1829, probably in Ohio. The 1850 Census showed them (ages 45 and 40) in Dist. 112, Zanesville, Muskingum Co., OH, with seven children ranging from 20 to 5 years. The 1860 Census showed them in Wayne Twp., Muskingum Co., OH, living near Lucy FORD (age 84, probably Martha's mother per another researcher) and near Sarah HARPER (nee Sarah FULKERSON), who would have been William's aunt. Martha's age was again given as 40 on the 1860 Census, and they had one additional child, Edward, born about 1851. William's son John was living with the aunt, apparently assisting her in operating her farm. William and Martha were found again on the 1870 Census, living alone and still farming in Wayne Twp.
- Mary J. FULKERSON....b. ca. 1830 in OH per 1850 Census
- Louisa FULKERSON....b. ca. 1832 in OH per 1850 Census

- Martha FULKERSON....b. ca. 1839 in OH per 1850 Census
- Thomas FULKERSON....b. ca. 1840 in OH per 1850 Census
- John FULKERSON....b. Dec 1842 in OH per 1900 Census. He was living at home on the 1850 Census, and living with neighbor Sarah HARPER (nee Sarah FULKERSON), age 77, on the 1860 Census. Sarah would have been his great aunt. John hasn't yet been located on the 1870 Census when he would have been 27. However, the 1880 Census finds a J.H. FULKERSON, age 37 and born in Ohio, living in Dadeville, Tallapoosa Co., Alabama. His father was listed as born in VA. He was living with S.A. FULKERSON, wife, age 45 and born in Ohio. He was last found on the 1900 Census, living at 514 Putnam Avenue in Zanesville, OH, age 57 and widowed, with an 11-year-old son, Charles H. FULKERSON. His occupation was 'drayman.'
- Charles Herbert FULKERSON....b. in Zanesville, OH on 9 Nov 1889, as shown by both the 1900 Census and his 1917 draft registration card. Charles was in vaudeville and used the nickname "Rube." His draft card stated he was a 'performer' and the name of his act was "Rube Fulkerson and the Ginger Girls" -- apparently his wife and daughters. He m. Florence (Flo) WAGNER and had at least three daughters who performed on stage with him as the "O'Brien Sisters" -- there was an ad in Variety as late as 1956, announcing a show featuring Mary O'Brien, "daughter of the late Rube Fulkerson, well-known tab comic in days gone by." One son, Charles Jr., died when a month old in 1916. Charles reportedly died in 1948, and Florence in 1962, both in Dallas, TX.

The 1880 Census found Gabriel as a 67-yr-old widower and boarder in the household of John A. NEWELL at Salt Creek, Muskingum County, OH.
- William Washington FULKERSON....b. in Ohio per his son's death certificate [LDS Familysearch]. He m. (1st) Sarah Catherine JENNINGS on 1 May 1856 and (2nd) Elizabeth Mary ALLEN (b. ca. 1843) on 10 Nov 1866. His three known children were with Elizabeth.

William and Ellen were listed on the 1880 Census, farming at Butler, Darke Co., OH. Only three children - Charles, Mary and Harry - were living with them. [NOTE: Some earlier research appeared to indicate that Ellen was the first wife and that her maiden name was Martha Ellen FULKERSON. If so, she began bearing children at the age of 11. Additionally, her ancestry is uncertain. Further confirmations are needed.]
- John FULKERSON....b. ca.1868-, apparently died by 1880

- Sarah FULKERSON.....b. ca. 1782. She m. Thomas HARPER on 27 Dec 1803 in Loudoun Co., VA. She was listed on the 1860 Census as Sarah HARPER, 77 and widowed, living a few doors away from an apparent nephew, William FULKERSON, in Wayne Twp., Muskingum Co., VA. Living with her, probably to assist on the farm, was 17-year-old John FULKERSON, son of William.
- Benjamin FULKERSON.....ca. 1783-12 Aug 1841, m. Elizabeth (or Alice?) HARPER (1786-1838) on 31 May 1810 in Loudon Co., Virginia. They moved to Ohio by 1820. Information about their descendants is from Chuck Fulkerson's FTM website (see the Cousins E-Mail Page for Chuck's listing and the link to his site).
- Mark FULKERSON....b. ca. 1810 in Virginia, his name was listed as Martin on a now-defunct Winstead site which also provided his marriage date. Mark was living alone at the time of the 1830 Census, which found him in Shenandoah Co., VA. He m. Christina WINSTEAD (b. about 1816 in Ohio) on 19 Aug 1841 in Pickaway Co., OH. Mark and Christine appeared on the 1850 and 1870 Census in Pickaway Co., OH. Their known children were:
- Hulda FULKERSON....b. ca. 1842 in Ohio
- Harvey FULKERSON....b. ca. 1845 in Pickaway Co., OH, m. Louisa M. MERCER on 2 Nov 1865 in Muskingum County, OH
- Henry FULKERSON....b. ca. 1849. [The above-noted Winstead site called this child Jimmy.] There was a Henry FULKERSON, b. in VA with both parents born in VA, listed on the 1880 Census at Columbus, Franklin Co., OH. He was a 30-year-old stone mason with a wife Jane, b. in VA ca. 1845. Her parents were both born in VA. Their three children were Samuel (12), Charles (9) and Flora (6) - all born in VA. It's possible this was the same Henry, although only his father was born in VA.
- Harriet FULKERSON....b. ca. 1851 in Pickaway County, OH

- Josiah Marion FULKERSON....9 Nov 1844- 2 Aug 1924, b. near Plainfield, Coshocton County, OH. In 2007 a cousin forwarded a copy of an article that appeared in The Coshocton Tribune on March 18, 1937. It reported on a book, "History of the Ram Fleet and the Marine Brigade," for which Josiah Marion Fulkerson was listed as the author - albeit as chairman of a committee of brigade surviviors entrusted to write it's history. The article went on to tell Josiah's personal story: he enlisted in Company H, 80th Division, Ohio Regulars, during the winter of 1861-62, soon after turning 17; he fought in the battles of Corinth and Iuka in Mississippi and was wounded at the conclusion of the latter; following his release from convalescence he re-enlisted in the Mississippi Marine Brigade, based at Benton Barracks, Missouri, and served aboard Union gunboats that patrolled and fought along the Mississippi River.
[NOTE: Had he initially joined in this latter endeavor in 1862, he might have fought against one of his cousins, Confederate Captain Isaac D. Fulkerson, in a Mississippi River gunboat battle. As it was, he did fight against one of his cousins, Lt. Colonel Jacob Thompson, at the battle of Corinth. Thompson also went on to maritime pursuits during the war, as a pirate on the Great Lakes.]
The article went on to tell us that, after the war, Josiah "worked his way from the bottom to the top of staff" at a Pittsburgh light manufacturing firm, leaving there after 14 years due to his ill health and moving to Kansas City, MO. Click here to see the article AND a photo of Josiah in the Civil War. From other family research we have determined that Josiah married (1st) Mary Jane COOPER (27 Jul 1839-20 Feb 1881, b. in PA) on 19 Mar 1867 in Allegheny City, Allegheny County, PA. Sometime between late 1876 and December 1878 they moved west to Emporia, Kansas. Mary died in Feb 1881 after bearing 4 children, and Josiah m. (2nd) to Nannie MILLER (11 Feb 1854-11 Jun 1920, thus almost 15 years younger than his first wife) on 29 May 1881 in Kansas City, MO. He must have divorced her between 1893 - when their 7th child was born - and 1896, as he then m. (3rd) Mary A. SULLIVAN (b. 1 Nov 1872, thus 18 years younger than his 2nd wife and more than 32 years younger than his first) on 3 Jun 1896 in the City of St. Louis, MO. About 1917 he opened Fulkerson's Saloon at 6286 Clayton Avenue (at Graham St.) in the Dogtown section of St. Louis. He apparently made at least one enemy in the neighborhood, as he soon came under suspicion of being unpatriotic during wartime. His obituary appeared in the St. Louis Post Dispatch on 3 Aug 1924. Few of his 12 children reached adulthood.

- Charity Ellen FULKERSON....23 May 1847-9 Dec 1921, b. in Coshocton County, OH, d. at Columbus, Franklin County, OH. She married as his second wife Charles B. JOHNSON (b. 30 Apr 1840 in Tompkins County, NY, son of Henry L. and Ocee Ann (BROWN) JOHNSON) on 7 Jul 1867 in Coshocton County, OH; his first marriage was to Martha BALTZALL, daughter of Joseph and Lydia, from 7 Mar 1863 to 12 Jul 1865. Thus Charles had two mothers-in-law named Lydia. A Civil War veteran (24th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, 1861-1863), Charles was in the harness-making trade. In 1874 he patented a diamond trace buckle, for which he received about $1,000 - probably equal to a year's income in most trades of that day. He set up his 3rd and final shop in New Castle Township a few months after marrying Charity, and there they spent the remainder of their lives. He served three terms as Justice of the Peace, and they were proprietors of the Union Hotel, which was described as doing a fair business. Three of their four children (one had died young) were listed in 1881:

- William FULKERSON.....b. ca. 1790, he is still being researched. William apparently remained in Virginia while his siblings emigrated to Ohio. He married an Amelia by 1818, per a Loudoun County land record. He was on the 1830 Census for Loudoun Co., VA, apparently widowed with two young boys.
- Anne FULKERSON.....b. ca. 1792, m. William BLOCKSOM (b. Milton, Sussex Co., DE on 18 Sept 1785) on 5 Jun 1818 (date also reported as 30 Aug 1820) in Muskingum Co., OH. One of their great-great-grandsons was the macabre author/illustrator, Edward GOREY (1925-2000). He created the animated introduction to the PBS series "Mystery!" and helped create the 1977 Broadway production of "Dracula" - which earned him a Tony Award for Best Costume Design and a nomination for Best Scenic Design.
Joseph FULKERSON....7 Mar 1755-11 Jul 1840, bpt. 20 Apr 1755 at Raritan, NJ. Joseph was a grandson of Joseph VOLKERTS and son of Philip FULKERSON and Maergrite/Margrita FARLEY. He enlisted in
the fall of 1775 to serve under Capt. John Polhemus in Col. William Wind's 1st Jersey Regiment, completing this service at Fort Ticonderoga, NY in 1776. In 1777 he enlisted for 3 years under Capt. Andrew McMyers in Col. Ogden's regiment of the New Jersey Line (Continental Army) and participated in the battles at Brandywine and Germantown. At Germantown he was wounded and Capt. McMyers was killed. The name of Joseph Fulkerson appears on the muster rolls at Valley Forge, during the winter of Washington's famous encampment there, from December 1777 through May 1778, listed as a Private in Van Angel's company of the New Jersey Brigade, 1st New Jersey Regiment. He rose to the rank of sergeant and participated in the Battle of Monmouth in June 1778. An August 1778 payroll found in his pension file showed that he made 3 pounds, 15 shillings per month as a sergeant.
Patriots in Prison Ships
Conveyed to York we found, at length, too late,
That Death was better than the prisoner's fate
There doomed to famine, shackles, and despair,
Condemned to breathe a foul, infected air,
In sickly hulks, devoted while we lay,--
Successive funerals gloomed each dismal day
The various horrors of these hulks to tell--
These prison ships where Pain and Penance dwell,
Where Death in ten-fold vengeance holds his reign,
And injured ghosts, yet unavenged, complain:
This be my task--ungenerous Britons, you
Conspire to murder whom you can't subdue
by Philip Freneau, captured at sea on the
Aurora in 1780 and made a prisoner on the
prison ship Scorpion in New York harbor.
Joseph was discharged by Lt. Col. Francis Barber at Mendam Huts near Morristown, NJ in January 1780, and not long afterward joined the crew of an American privateer (a 'legalized' pirate ship) hired to capture British merchant vessels. Their luck ran backward, and they were themselves taken captive. Joseph spent over a year on a British prison ship in New York harbor, where he "suffered much from cold, hunger and sickness" per his later pension claim. [His name does not appear on the prisoner roster of the most infamous British prison ship - the "Jersey" - at http://www.usmm.net/revdead.html, so it is likely he was on one of the many other prison ships there.] Joseph was paroled or exchanged in the fall of 1781, about the time of Corwallis' defeat at Yorktown. In 1818 he applied for and received Revolutionary War Pension #S42307.
In 1789, according to GODDING family research, he m. Betsy OLIPHANT (30 Oct 1764-15 Jul 1840, b. at Raritan, NJ, dau. of Andrew Oliphant Jr, son of a Scotch immigrant) of Morristown, NJ, at the 1st Reformed Church in Raritan. He was listed as Joseph FALKERSON on the 1810 Census at Plainfield, Northampton Co., PA, age over 45, with wife and 3 children. By December 1838 they moved to Monroe Co., Ohio - probably because some of their children were moving there - and he applied to have his pension transferred to Ohio. They appeared on the 1840 census, but both died in July of that year, just four days apart. Both were buried at the Pioneer Cemetery in Woodfield, OH. In the following month, the
Monroe County Court of Common Pleas, [Journal 4, Pg 2 -- August 1840 Term, 6th Day] recorded that:
"It was proven to the satisfaction of the court that Joseph Fulkerson, late a Revolutionary pensioner of the United States died in Monroe County on the 11th day of July 1840 leaving a widow who survived him but 4 days and died on July 15, 1840, leaving Joseph Fulkerson, Sarah Ann Fulkerson, Thomas Fulkerson, and Margaret L Fulkerson, their children and heirs."
- Joseph Farley FULKERSON....1796-11 Apr 1874, b. in NJ, lived in Northampton Co., PA by 1810 Census. Joseph's middle name was called "Farling" in a son's 'vanity biography' of a century later. He called himself 'Joseph F. FULKERSON.' It is very likely the 'F' actually stood for FARLEY, his grandmother's maiden name.
Joseph m. Margaret MESSINGER (13 Oct 1801-17 Apr 1871, daughter of Philip MESSINGER and Margaret PILE), probably about 1819 in Easton, PA. Joseph was appointed as a guardian of Philip MESSINGER's younger children, as evidenced in the Journal of the Pennsylvania Senate on 5 Dec 1820 (click here to see this document). Joseph witnessed papers related to the will of Margaret's grandfather, John A. PILE, in Easton in 1823. He moved to New York City to engage in manufacturing about 1826 and later went upstate to Steuben Co., NY, per son George's biography. They journeyed west to Ohio about 1838 — apparently accompanied by Joseph's parents, brothers and at least one married sister, per his father's pension file. On the 1840 Monroe Co., OH census they were living at Woodsfield and had 3 boys and 4 girls. In 1846 they put their land up for sale and moved to Bucyrus, Crawford Co., OH. A Linn County, Iowa biography, written of his son William in 1901, tells us that
In 1856 he came with the family to Linn county, Iowa, the journey being made
by teams, and they camped and cooked by the roadside during the four weeks en
route. They first located on what is known as the Biggs' farm, between Cedar Rapids
and Marion, but after residing there for six months they removed to a farm near Iowa
City in Johnson county. The winter of 1856-7 being unusually severe, the crops were
almost a total failure, and Mr. Fulkerson, like many others became so discouraged that
he returned to his old home in the Buckeye state, the journey being made by way of the
Mississippi and Ohio rivers. Only three of the children had removed with the parents to
Iowa, though two daughters had previously located there.
His son George's biography omits the Iowa adventure and tells us simply that Joseph Farley FULKERSON, "subsequently moved to Bucyrus, Crawford County, OH, where his death occured April 8, 1874. He was followed to the better land that same year by his wife, who, like himself, was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church." They are buried at Oakwood Cemetery, Crawford Co, OH.
- Rachel FULKERSON....b. ca. 1820, probably at Easton, PA. She was still living at home at the time of the 1840 Census, listed as a female aged 20-29. She married, as his second wife, Kinney A. POWELL (1817-after 1899) at Bucyrus, OH on 24 Mar 1856. The 1860 Census found them in Scott Township, Johnson Co., Iowa (her age was listed as 40). Per an 1854 property grant for "Kinney A Powell" of Bucyrus, Crawford, Ohio, they had land in Iowa City, Johnson Co., Iowa. The 1880 Census showed them at Iowa City with two sons born from their union. The 1900 Census found him at Des Moines, widowed, living with two children. He reported his occupation as "capitalist."

- John Medaris FULKERSON...3 Apr 1878-, m. Maude L. KILLIAM. His biography appeared in the 1920 Memoirs of Miami Valley, Ohio:
John M. Fulkerson. A prosperous and growing commercial enterprise at Troy is found in the up-to-date and well-equipped pharmacy of John M. Fulkerson, who has been proprietor of this business for the past eighteen years. Mr. Fulkerson is a native of Shelby county, Ohio, born April 3, 1878, a son of George W. and Margaret J. (Mills) Fulkerson, whose children were: John M.; Walter, identified with the steel industry at Canton, Ohio; and William a lieutenant in the United States Navy. The father of Mr. Fulkerson was a physician who practiced for many years in Shelby County and the youth was brought up amid surroundings that naturally inclined him toward his present calling. After attending the local schools, he took up the study of pharmacy at Ohio Northern University, and after his graduation from that institution began to follow the drug business. In 1902 he came to Troy, where he established himself in business, and since that time has built up a large and satisfying patronage among the leading people of this community. He has a well-equipped establishment and carries a full line of drugs, medicines, toilet articles, cigars, candies, etc., and the manner in which he has directed his transactions has given him business standing and public confidence. Mr. Fulkerson is a member of the Masonic fraternity. He has always given his unquestioning support to movements of a worthy civic character, and during the period of the war was prompt in his response to requests for contributions to the various movements promoted for the success of American arms. Mr. Fulkerson married Maude L., daughter of William Killiam, of Piqua, and to this union there have been born two daughters: Margaret, who is her father's able assistant in the drug store; and Florine, born in 1909, who is attending the graded schools of Troy.

- James Wesley FULKERSON....1839-Apr 1881, b. in Monroe Co., OH, m. Isabelle YOUNGMAN on 22 Dec 1863 at Bucyrus, OH and died there just 18 years later. This is probably the James who served as a Lieutenant in the 8th and later the 136th Ohio Volunteer infantries during the Civil War. The 8th was a short-lived outfit: it "reported at Camp Chase May 12, 1861, was mustered, uniformed, armed, equipped, and shipped to Washington City. It remained on garrison duty in and around Washington during its entire term of service, which expired August 20, 1861, when it was mustered out and discharged."

At age 9 his family moved to Iowa, but soon returned to Ohio. There he attended school until he was 16, and then joined the Union army in 1864. He spent his 17th birthday participating in his 6th battle. In early 1865 his unit was surprised by Confederates and captured, but William and about 100 other enlisted men escaped and made it back to Union lines. In 1866 he developed an interest in building, which led to a move to Chicago in 1871 to train in architecture. The Linn County biography of him, from 1901, then tells us that he moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where he
built the Soldiers Home at Marshalltown; the Central Hall building of the State Normal School at Cedar Falls in 1895; the Auditorium of Cedar Rapids, which has a seating capacity of thirty-five hundred, in 1899; and ten of the public school buildings of this place, besides numerous fine business blocks and residences.
- Huldah E. FULKERSON....m. John GODDING; the Monroe County, Ohio, Court of Common Pleas did not list her as a child of Joseph FULKERSON in 1840. In 1858, according to Joseph's pension file, Emily R.

She made this claim as an heir of Joseph FULKERSON, in accordance with an Act passed by Congress on 3 Mar 1855, and stated she was under 21 years of age on the date of that Act.
