Two New Jersey veterans
of the American Revolution became the nuclei of the Fulkerson branches
in the rural counties of Pennsylvania. Fortunately for family
historians who might otherwise run into some confusion, both were named
They were also first cousins, born three years apart, the sons
of brothers Jacob FOLCKERTSEN and Johannis FULKERSON. Their common
grandfather was Folkert FOLKERSON,
the eldest son of Philip VOLKERSE.

to 19th-century Pennsylvania but not yet linked to the rest of the
This page was begun several years after the Fulkerson site was founded, and has grown continuously over the years since then. Thank you to the many cousins who helped sort out the Pennsylvania Fulkerson families and continue to contribute their own research and historical finds.
Descendants of John FULKERSON (1758)
1758 in Somerset Co., NJ. He had Revolutionary War service in Capt. Sebring's company of the
Somerset County militia and also in the Continental Army, in which he served as a soldier, blacksmith, wagoner and teamster. He was wounded at the Battle of Monmouth in June 1778. [OFFICIAL REGISTER
OF THE OFFICERS AND MEN OF NEW JERSEY IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, COMPILED UNDER ORDERS OF HIS EXCELLENCY THEODORE F. RANDOLPH, GOVERNOR, BY WILLIAM S. STRYKER, ADJUTANT GENERAL. PRINTED BY AUTHORITY OF THE LEGISLATURE. TRENTON, N. J.: WM. T. NICHOLSON & CO., PRINTERS. 1872.].
In 1799 he and wife Mary Alkey SMITH were
administrators of his father's estate. ["Alkie" was sometimes an
Anglicized spelling of the Dutch name "Aeltje," which actually
translates as "Alice."] They moved to Frederick Co., VA about 1785,
where family legend says John lived at Rappahannock, owned slaves and was employed as a stage coach driver. John and Alkey later
moved their family to Beaver Twp. (now New Castle) in Mercer Co., PA, buying land there on
on Apr 5, 1808. Two sons, John and Lewis,
chose to remain in Frederick Co. (Family legend, according to descendant Ruth Leathers in a 1960 letter, which also states John was soured on slavery and freed his slaves when he moved to Pennsylvania.)
A deed recorded at the Mercer County courthouse showed that John bought land on 4 Nov 1811 from Cornelius and Anne HENDRICKSON. It was bounded on the east by the Shenango River, on the south by the Beaver County line, on the north by the farm of Ebenezer Byers and on the west by "donation land." Part of his estate eventually became the Greenwood Cemetery, in which some of the family were later buried.
On 5 Jun 1833 John filed for a
Revolutionary War pension in Beaver Co., PA, which was awarded
(certificate #25855) on 17 Jan 1834. [NOTE: Some descendants have become members of the Sons of the American Revolution.] John died in 1844 at New Castle, Lawrence Co., PA, according to his pension records. The Biographical Sketches of
Leading Citizens Lawrence County Pennsylvania (Biographical
Publishing Company, Buffalo, N.Y., 1897) reported in a sketch about son
Robert that both of his parents lived to be at least 80 years. Then again, that biography
erroneously reported John was of "German descent," which tends to
substantiate the caution that these old 'sketches' -- while an
invaluable resource -- are oral histories and are known to include
many mistakes. Information in them should always be confirmed by
checking primary sources (wills, deeds, censuses, etc.).

Robert reportedly died in 1894. This would coincide with his omission in his father's will, and also with the 1900 Census which listed Adeline R. FULKERSON as a widow living in New Castle Ward 7, Lawrence Co., PA. Nettie still lived with her, and a Mr. Byron HILL was listed as a boarder.

John remained in VA and reportedly died in 1876, or possibly 1868. He and Catherine are buried at the Old Stone Church Cemetery, Green Springs, Frederick Co., VA, where his broken old headstone
states he lived to 87 years and 25 days. His one known child was George S. FULKERSON. Both John, age 60, and George, age 36, appear on the 1850 Census for Frederick County.
- James FULKERSON.....b. March 1792 near Winchester, VA,
moved to PA, m. Martha JOHNSON on August 26, 1813, became judge in
Lawrence Co., PA, d. August 13, 1877, Union Twp., Lawrence Co., PA. He
was listed on the 1850 Census for that county. The Lawrence County
history cited above described him thus:
For his own farm he bought a tract of 200 acres,
adjoining his father's property, .... and set about in earnest to
support himself and to accumulate property; he was a very hard worker,
and made the work of clearing as easy as it was possible by burning
what would be considered very valuable lumber nowadays, but which was
then considered to be in the way of crops of grain which otherwise
might occupy the same place. His brother went to the War of 1812, and
James started with him, but met with a fall, which left Him a cripple
in his left arm all his days. He was a prominent man among the town's
citizens, and active in matters of public interest, but never held an
office. He died at the age of seventy-nine. In the battle of life he
ever looked on the bright side, was of a cheery disposition and never
down-hearted; in his immediate surroundings he was a kind and loving
husband and father. His wife, who was a daughter of John Johnson, died
at the age, of seventy-nine, having borne him eight children...
Their children, as determined through various sources including the
- John C. FULKERSON....b. 29 Aug 1814, reported retired
in New Castle in the 1890s by his bio sketch, which also tells us he
at eighteen years of age left the farm to
learn the cabinet-maker's trade, served three years' apprenticeship,
and worked two years as a journeyman. He then started in business for
himself in New Castle, in a small shop on the property, where Mrs.
Sankey now resides, on West Washington Street. He became a very skilled
workman, and made a specialty of fine work in the line of house
furniture; this work he followed until 1861, and many of the elegant
pieces of cabinet-work, prized by the leading families of the town,
were wrought by his hand. Machinery at length invaded the domain of his
trade, and the resulting competition and low prices was too much for
our subject, so he turned his attention to carpentry work, which he has
followed for some twenty years. He was then appointed to take charge of
the county and city bridges, and has been in active life until 1897,
when he retired; he resides in a house he built in 1847, and besides
owning one adjoining, which he built in 1836, he owns another tenement
property in a different part of the town, besides a number of lots. Our
subject was a stanch Whig, but is now a Republican.
March 24, 1836, he was joined in holy wedlock with Miss Elizabeth
Gibson, daughter of William Gibson; she was born March 19, 1815, and
died April 12, 1839, leaving one son—James G., born March 1, 1839 [probably 1837], a
dealer in coal of New Castle. On Nov. 26, 1839, Mr. Fulkerson united
his fortunes with Miss Eliza Houk, daughter of John Houk. She was born
May 11, 1814, in Shenango township, this county.
- James G. FULKERSON....born 1 Mar 1837 as the only child of Elizabeth GIBSON before she died at age 24. He m. Marion A. SPENCE (b. ca. 1842) on 17 Dec 1857. Two of their four children died young. The 1870 Census found him at Union Township, Lawrence Co., PA (page number 11, enumerated June 23, 1870) with his 28-yr-old wife and two children. In the 1880 Census he was listed again in Union, working as a clerk selling tobacco and newspapers. The "20th Century History of New Castle and Lawrence County Pennsylvania and Representative Citizens" (p. 555) tells his story:
J.G.FULKERSON, one of New Castle's prominent citizens, who has been identified with its business interests and who also, for the last twenty years has taken a very active part in politics and has served as justice of the peace, burgess and alderman, was born in March, 1837, at New Castle, and is a son of John C. Fulkerson.
The Fulkerson family was established here by the grandfather, James Fulkerson, who came to New Castle, with his three brothers, in 1800. John C. Fulkerson was born at New Castle. He learned the cabinetmaking trade and in the early days had almost entire control of this business, as he was considered an expert all through this section of country. He was a Whig in his earlier political life, and later became a Republican.
J. G. Fulkerson was left motherless when he was two years old, and he was reared by his paternal grandparents. He attended the early schools and readily recalls those who sat on the same benches with him, many of these having passed away. Early in his business life he was employed in a dry goods store at Youngstown, Ohio, for one year, when he entered the nail factory and worked in factories of this kind for ten years, in Youngstown, New Castle and Pittsburg. From that he went to the oil fields and spent five years mainly in the oil contracting business. In 1861, Mr. Fulkerson enlisted for service in the Civil War, entering Company A, One Hundred and Thirty-fourth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He remained in active service for nine months, and although on many occasions he had a close call, he escaped all the serious ills that pertain to a soldier's dangerous life. That he was an active soldier was shown by his promotion from the ranks to be second sergeant, and during much of his period of service he performed the duties of an orderly, taking the place of a sick officer.
When Mr. Fulkerson returned to peaceful pursuits, he re-entered the nail mill, and for two years worked in the rolling department, after which he operated an engine at Beaver Falls for over a year, and then went back to New Castle. He operated an engine for the Etna Furnace Company for a year, and then bought a tobacco business, which he conducted for twelve years. On September 1, 1884, Mr. Fulkerson embarked in a coal business, and continued in the same until 1903, when the Lawrence Ice Company bought him out. He remained with this company after disposing of his interests and has charge of their coal and ice trade, his long experience making him particularly valuable to this corporation.
The family belong to the First Presbyterian Church. Mr. Fulkerson has been an ardent Republican ever since the candidacy of John C. Fremont, for whom he cast his first vote, although a little under age, and has voted for every Republican candidate since. He is a member of the Grand Army of the Republic and he belongs also to the Knights of Pythias and to the Protected Home Circle.

recompense for his services he was given the homestead and part of the
land, on which he built a house, in 1861, where he now resides. Being
located on the borough line, he has cut up a part of the farm into city
lots, laying out the following streets: Oat, Fern, Ann, and Spring. Of
these lots, which he has placed on the open market, he has sold the
major portion, and many of them have been built on, and are fast
increasing in value. Always active in the interest and progress of New
Castle, he has been engaged in mercantile business some, and has been
identified in municipal affairs to a considerable extent, having held
many offices of the town and city, being overseer of the poor ten years
and a school director for a lesser period. In 1887 he was elected
associate-judge, and has filled the chair since with honor and
distinction. Mr. Fulkerson married Miss Mary Ann Gibson, daughter of
Abner Gibson of Wilmington township, this county, Jan. 20, 1848; Mrs.
Fulkerson was born Jan. 10, 1824, and died Oct. 4, 1885. Their marriage
was never blessed with children...

age 20, born in PA, living in Homer, Bates County, MO. But a Japanese web site reports even further:
"EPPERSON AND KATE FULKERSON
Epperson Fulkerson was born in Newcastle, Pennsylvania on October 2, 1859. He first
became a member of the Arkansas Conference and later the Nebraska Conference of the
Methodist Episcopal Church. Fulkerson married Kate J. Strong on September 15, 1886.
Arriving in Japan in March 1887, they came down to Nagasaki on August 31, 1889. While in
Nagasaki, Epperson Fulkerson served two terms (1894-1901 and 1902-06) as principal at
Chinzei Gakuin [a Methodist mission].
Kate Fulkerson died of diabetes on October 23, 1903 at the age of thirty-six and was buried
at Sakamoto International Cemetery. She was survived by her husband and four sons:
Anson (1887), Walter (1889, Nagasaki), Raymond (1892, Nagasaki) and Earl (1899, Nagasaki).
In 1905, Epperson Fulkerson married Anna Strong (possibly Kate's younger sister). There
were two daughters produced by this marriage. Fulkerson returned to the U.S. in 1907 for
health reasons and in 1908 transferred to the Columbia River Conference. He spent a few
years in Galt, California trying to recover his health. From 1914 until his death on May 29,
1940 at the age of eighty, Fulkerson resided in Canon City, Colorado."
Epperson FULKERSON, in 1917, at far right. Son |
Raymond is at left, the infant is Raymond's son, and
the gentleman in the center is James STRONG,
father of Epperson's wives Kate and Anna.
The Japanese site also mentions, on an index page, that Epperson was a vice-consul at the American Consulate in Nagasaki. A STRONG family biography, dealing with Kate's brother Benjamin Franklin STRONG, MD, states this post was held during the Spanish American War and also confirmed that Anna (b. 1873) was Kate's sister. One descendant wrote that "Anna went to Japan to care for her 4 nephews, when Kate died, and married her brother-in law [16 Aug 1905]." Another descendant reports that Epperson actually moved to Canon City, CO in 1912, living in a house at 907 S. Third St. The descendant said the family business in Canon City involved operation of a swimming pool that included a high dive, but then went on to say, "We have found a reference to Epperson on the internet in an essay describing the rise of the Klan in Canon City - a huge rally was held at the swimming pool owned by Dr. E. Fulkerson" [January 1924]. A reading of the essay, found at the Canon City Public Library site at http://ccpl.lib.co.us/KKK/KKK%20Essay.html, reveals Epperson was just one of a number of local Protestant leaders who supported the KKK as a means to improve schools, battle bootleggers and oppose the menace of Italian immigration in Fremont County, Colorado. This KKK involvement was a national trend in the 1920s, epitomized in Williamson County, Illinois and many other localities throughout the American Midwest where the Protestant establishment felt threatened by immigrants arriving to labor in mines and other industries.

Jeanette PATTISON (1836-1891, b. in PA, both parents born in Scotland). They are found on the 1880 Census living at Union Twp., Lawrence Co., PA, with David, Aggie, Jenny and Samuel in their household.
The Lawrence County history reports he at
thirteen years of age became a workman in the nail
manufactory, and later went into oil speculation. In 1862 he enlisted
in Co. C, of the 10th Pa. Reserve, and served three years, and is
to-day a member of the U. V. L. Lodge. He was wounded at Charles City
Cross Road, losing by the fortune of war the end of one finger; and
having his collar-bone and three ribs broken. After being discharged
from the hospital, he returned to his regiment, and soon after
experienced a sun-stroke, from which he has never fully recovered. When
the war was over, and he once more made New Castle his home, he
indulged in gardening some, and also assisted his son [David] in the
restaurant. He has a fine home on West Washington Street, which he
bought some years ago and enlarged and beautified. His wife was born
Sept. 3, 1836, and died Aug. 23, 1891. His children were: Agnes M.,
born Feb. 20, 1858, the wife of Revillian T. Wick; David P., our
subject; Jennie A., born Aug. 28, 1872; and Samuel J. R., born Sept.
21, 1877, a designer and engraver.

Co., PA, m. Anna DEAN on 13 Oct 1892. His sketch in the above-cited
Lawrence County history described him as "a member of the firm of Wick
& Fulkerson, proprietors of the leading restaurant of New Castle,
located at No. 10 Apple Alley." It goes on to report he
at sixteen years of age entered the Shenango Glass Factory, and worked
four years as a gatherer, but was compelled to forsake that occupation
by reason of an injury to his hand. In 1891, in company with R. T.
Wick, he bought the Maitland restaurant, and refitted it throughout and
put in a fine range; the restaurant occupies two floors. It was started
as the second restaurant in New Castle, and although many have come
into the inviting field, it easily heads the procession with the
largest and best trade of any that run day and night. Their patronage
is very select, and they take pride in keeping up their reputation by
catering in the most satisfactory manner to the wants of the inner man.
Mr. Fulkerson married, Oct. 13, 1892, Miss Anna Dean, daughter of
Hanson Dean of Brighton, Pa., and has one child, Verna, born Oct. 19,

- Margaret FULKERSON....13 Aug 1835-May 1879, m. to William MURTO (born 1834 in Dublin, Ireland) on 17 Jan 1855 in Lawrence Co., PA. They lived in Allegheny City, PA. Page 280 of "A Century and a Half of Pittsburg and her People," (Vol. IV) contains a sketch of Dr. Frank D. MURTO, well-known and successful dentist of Pittsburg, Allegheny Co, PA. The article reported William J. MURTO died in 1900, and Margaret FULKERSON in 1872.
It went on to say that William settled in Pittsburg in 1854 and for many years was engaged in the steamboat business, running boats from Pittsburg to Cairo. He became a manufacturer of sheet iron ware in 1861 and was equally successful in this venture.

- Richard FULKERSON.....1800-23 Nov 1863, b. at Frederick, VA, moved to PA with his parents and lived at New Castle, Lawrence Co., PA, m. (1st) Rosanna MACKEY (ca. 1804-15 Apr 1828), (2nd) Delilah LEEPER (1807-12 Jun 1845) on 12 Dec 1825, (3rd) Mary CAIRNS (1811-1850) in 1848 and (4th) Amanda CARSON (20 Nov 1810-Mar 1873) after 1850. Delilah, who bore most of his children, was the dau. of John and Mary (Polly) LEEPER of Stanovler, Donegal, Ireland. They were Protestants who emigrated to the US in 1791, when both were about 27 years old, and became naturalized citizens on 12 Jun 1807 in Mercer Co., PA. John's will, made on 5 Mar 1847, mentions "the children of my daughter Delilah FULKERSON."
The 1850 Census showed him without a wife, living in North Beaver, Lawrence Co., PA, with his children William (age 20), Alkon (age 18), Ellen (age 15), Nancy (age 13), Robert (age 9), Alexander (age 7), and Irene (age 2, born PA). It also showed his son Joseph Thornton, here called Thornton (age 26), living in his household with wife Eliza (age 20) and their daughter Mary (age 2). The will of Amanda's mother, Sarah CARSON, stated in 1860 that Amanda was "intermarried" with Richard FULKERSON. Lewis FULKERSON was listed on the will as an admininstrator, and John FULKERSON was the county registrar. Richard reportedly had a total of 17 children, of whom 15 are known - 2 by Rosanna MACKEY, 10 by Delilah LEEPER, 1 by Mary CAIRNS and finally 2 by Amanda CARSON:
- Joseph Thornton FULKERSON....b. 15 Apr 1825, m. Eliza Jane GLASS (b. ca. 1825-1830 in PA) about 1848. The 1850 Census shows him as Thornton Fulkerson living in his father's household with wife Eliza and daughter Mary.

The 1850 Census found them on 3 Sep 1850, living at New Castle, Lawrence Co., PA with 3-yr-old Ellen. John was working as a cooper. They appeared on the 1860 Census in Lawrence County, Pollock Twp, New Castle Post Office (Line 21-28, 421 383), with Susanna Elizabeth listed as "Eliza." His occupation was listed as Recorder. The children listed were "Ellen, Addilade, Rebeca, Eward, Carman." The 1880 Census listed him as "John W. FALKERSON," living at Union, Lawrence Co., Pennsylvania. He was a clerk in a "Registers Office," possibly a county office. He was listed as age 57, wife Elizabeth reported as 50. Son Carman lived at home, worked for the railroad. Daughter Stella and sons James W. and Ira were also at home, ages 18, 16 and 10. A mother-in-law, Catharine SUTTLEY, was listed as a lodger.

- Edward FULKERSON....b. ca. 1856 in New Castle, Lawrence Co., PA. One source previously stated he died before 1860. However, he does appear on the 1860 Census. It is possible that he died by 1870, as he did not appear on that Census.

He was at the same address with a wife Stella in 1942 when he registered for the WWII draft, and was working at the Shenango Pottery Co. [Interestingly, the WWI draft registration card had a small notice printed in one corner: "If person is of African descent, tear off this corner."]
- Arthur L. FULKERSON....

Per ROBENS researchers, Laura was the daughter of Reuben ROBENS (born 10 Oct 1779 in Stillwater, Saratoga Co., NY, and died 15 Oct 1855 in Brookfield, Trumbull Co., OH) and Elizabeth PARISH. He m. (2nd) Sarah Jane WALTER, with whom he had three more children. They lived in Lawrence Co., PA. [NOTE: Laura's name was earlier reported as Sarah, and it was stated that "Sarah was buried in Greenwood Cemetery, New Castle, Lawrence Co., PA." Now it's unclear which one is buried there, or perhaps it's both. There's also a reasonable doubt about the ROBENS research: she may have been Sarah, a younger sister of Laura, because Laura was reported with three facts: birth in 1814, marriage to William FULKERSON, and death in 1861 or 1867.]
- Charles FULKERSON....1857-, m. Mary SEIFERT. The 1880 Census showed a Charley FULKERSON, age 23, working as a "horse shoorr" at Youngstown, Mahoning Co., OH.

- Alkey Smith FULKERSON....1831-, m. Alexander DUFF on 3 Jul 1851. A history of Lawrence County from the 1880s tells us more about him:
Was born July 21, 1832, near Hillsville, this county. He is a son of James DUFF, who died in 1876, aged 85 years. His father was born on Turtle creek, Allegheny county, and was a soldier of the war of 1812. His mother is still living at the age of 95 years, and is able to ride in a wagon five miles to visit her children. Her mind is clear and perfect. Mr. DUFF has lived on a farm all his life, but still manages to attend to his store business. Since 1863 he has lived within a mile and a half of Moravia on what was known as the "John JUSTICE farm." He went into the mercantile business in 1867 with G.Y. LESLIE, and a short time after sold out to Mr. LESLIE, when he worked at farming and thrashing until 1879, when he opened his present store, and has continued in business successfully ever since. He was married to Alkey S. FULKERSON, daughter of Richard FULKERSON, deceased, of New Castle, July 3, 1851, and has eight children living and one dead...He had both legs broken in 1857 by a stone rolling on him while digging a ditch, which made him a cripple somewhat, but otherwise he is enjoying good health...He was elected Justice of the Peace in 1873, has been postmaster two years and agent of the Pennsylvania Company, at Moravia, seven years, and has shipped on an average 75,000 bushels of grain annually from this place for several years.

They also tell us Alkey had a large family: "In 1900 Alkey Cox Kerr, 75, is still living at Harrisville with her farmer son Charles C and his wife. She gives her birth as July 1824, that she was a widow who had had 12 children with 7 alive in 1900. The 5 dead ones must have died as children as only 7 names appear in any census starting in 1850."

Descendants of John FULKERSON (1761)
April 19, 1761 in Brunswick, Middlesex Co., NJ Dutch Reformed Church. This is probably the Revolutionary War veteran who stated in his pension application that he was born on 17 Feb 1759. He lived in Somerset Co. through 1769, then at Roxbury in Morris County, where he m. Catherine SLAUGHT on 13 Apr 1781 [Vol. XXII of the Archives of the State of New Jersey page 143; also Early NJ Marriages, Vol F part 5 #249: " #249; John FOLKERSON (FULKERSON) and Jacob MORRIL (MERRILL), both of the County of Morris...[bound to]... William LIVINGSTON, Governor... 500 pounds... 13 April 1781. ... certificate of marriage between John FOLKERSON...and Catharine SLAUGHT... [w] Mal'm McCOUNY ]. A later family record (in Tioga Co., PA) stated he was wounded in the head at the battle of Yorktown, October 1781. They settled in Northumberland Co., PA in 1785 and had nine children. John and his father Johannis appeared on the Northumberland County tax list for 1786, listed as John and John, Jr. The younger John owned no land, had two horses, two cows and paid $1.30 in taxes. He was listed among the members of the Warrior Run Presbyterian Church when it was founded in 1789. (A 1797 church record listed him and a "Pruner" Fulkerson!) Late in life he lived with his son Jeremiah. He died and/or was buried at Warrior Run Church Cemetery, Northumberland, PA [Lot #U-2L] on 12 Nov 1834.
- Anny FULKERSON....b. 6 Jan 1782
- Jeremiah FULKERSON....b. Aug 1785, served in War of 1812, m. Mary MILLER, lived in Tioga Co., PA. They had 12 children altogether. At least five of their sons served in the Civil War. Jeremiah must have died in 1857. On October 15, 1857, The Wellsboro Agitator ran the Letters of Administration notice for Jeremiahs estate. William FULKERSON (probably his son William) and John SEBRING were the administrators. (The latter surname had been associated with the Fulkerson clan for more than 150 years by 1857.)
- John FULKERSON
- Edmund FULKERSON....30 Mar 1827- June 1862. A carpenter, he m. Margaret STANLEY (b. 1833) by 1857. They were found (thanks, Shirley) on the 1860 Census, living at Beccaria Twp - post office Smiths Mills, with two small children. From the Twentieth Century History of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, and Representative Citizens, by Roland D. Swoope, Jr., (Chicago: Richmond-Arnold Publishing Company, 1911), we learn a little about her own family:
Simon Stanley was a forgeman by trade and worked as such during his earlier years, but later engaged in farming, and after moving to Gulich township, Clearfield county, carried on agricultural operations during the rest of his active life. He and his wife Susan had children as follows: Wilhelmina, now deceased, who was the wife of John Henderson; Margaret, who is the widow of Edward Fulkerson, who was killed in the Civil war; Elizabeth, who married Boaz Alexander; Sarah, who became the wife of Capt. John McKernan, who served in the Mexican and Civil wars; Lucinda, wife of George Curtis, a veteran of the Civil war; Shadrach; Rebecca, who became the wife of Jordan Fox; Dinicious A.; and George M., the subject of this sketch.
He enlisted on 16 Oct 1861 and served as a corporal in Company D of the 53rd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, which according to their rolls was recruited in Center and Clearfield counties. He apparently remained in the region until about Feb 1862, based on his final child's birthdate. Per the company roster, he "received a gunshot wound in leg at the battle of Seven Pines, Va. [31 May-1 Jun 1862], during the siege in front of Richmond,
Va., the leg was amputated, and he was taken to Philadelphia, PA, where his death was the result."
Margaret was five months pregnant at the time of her husband's mortal wound. She raised and then lived with her children (in Utahville Precinct, Beccaria Township) until well into her 80s. One census listed Margaret's birthdate as 3 Nov 1835, although her headstone indicates she was born in 1833. She was listed on the 1890 Census as receiving a Civil War widow's pension. She was probably still receiving it in 1920, when the Census found her at Beccaria, living with children William and Edra. Edmund and Margaret were buried at Cambria Mills Baptist Cemetery, Reade Township, Cambria Co., PA [CLICK for larger image]. Another Fulkerson, a veteran named Daniel, is buried there with no dates. (thanks, Carol)
- Susan FULKERSON....b. ca. 1857, last known on the 1860 Census. Based on her sister's obit, she may have married a WILLIAMS. (Fast forward 24 hours. Research by a Fulkerson cousin who's actually searching for one of the unattached PA branches in this same county confirms yesterday's educated guess. Carol A. found Susan and Miles WILLIAMS on the 1880 Census in Beccaria, Clearfield Co., PA, with two young children, living next door to the Fulkersons. A Cambia County history tells us more about Mr. Williams:
Samuel Miles Williams, deceased, was a native of Pennsylvania. He was born in Beccaria Township, Clearfield County, the son of Jesse and Caroline (Green) Williams. Samuel Miles Williams' early years were spent on the old Williams homestead near Utahville. Reaching manhood he took up farming and worked on many timber tracts as a means of livelihood. Leaving this work, he was employed as a section hand on the Bells Gap Railroad. He became a section foreman, which position he held for many years. Always industrious and faithful to his trust, he was at one time awarded a prize for having the best section of track on the P. & N. W. R. R. Later he had charge of a repair crew that traveled over the railroad from Bellwood to Punxsutawney. He retired from active service with the railroad and divided his attention between the farm and his store at Utahville. Mr. Williams took an interest in education at all times and served as a school director for many years in Beccaria Township. During this time he was much pleased with the success of the township high school and stood unflinchingly for its welfare. He was one of the promoters of the Reade Telephone Company and served as one of the first directors. During the World war he was much interested in the many war drives and assisted in every way that he could to make them a success. Mr. Williams died Dec. 5, 1921, and is buried at Utahville, Pa.; Lucy May, married William Beck, lives at Tyrone, Pa.; Margaret Bess, married R. E. Hunter, lives at Irvona, Pa.; Edwin Blaine, lives at Utahville, Pa.; and J. C., the subject of this sketch.
- Jay C. WILLIAMS....b. ca. 1877, lived in Ebensburg, PA in 1960. A Cambria Co. history describes him thus:
"J. C. Williams is a representative citizen of Ebensburg, where he is supervising principal of schools. He was born in Beccaria Township, Clearfield County, Pa., Aug. 25, 1876, and is the son of Samuel Miles and Susan Elizabeth (Fulkerson) Williams...On Oct. 11, 1899, Mr. Williams was united in marriage with Miss Lena E. Strunk, who was born at Homet's Ferry, Bradford County, PA"
- Ethel WILLIAMS....b. ca. 1879, lived in Utahville Precinct, Beccaria Township, and shared a residence with her aunt Edra after 1930 until 1960
- Lucy May WILLIAMS....b. after 1880, m. William C. BECK, lived nearby at Tyrone, PA in 1960
- Margaret Bess WILLIAMS....m. R. E. Hunter, lived at Irvona, PA
- Edwin Blaine WILLIAMS....lived in Utahville Precinct, Beccaria Township
- William FULKERSON....b. May 1858, a farmer, he was found on the Census living with his mother and sister in 1880, 1890, 1900, 1910 and 1920. By the 1930 Census he was still living with his sister.
- Edra FULKERSON....28 Oct 1862-17 Mar 1960, apparently born about four months after her father's fatal war injury. She was found on the Census living with her mother and brother from 1880 to 1920. By the 1930 Census she was still living with her brother. Her obituary appeared in the Clearfield Progress on 19 March 1960:
"MISS EDRA FULKERSON UTAHVILLE - Miss Edra Fulkerson, 97 died at 11 am Thursday at Utahville where she resided with a niece. Born Oct. 28, 1862 at Utahville, she was a daughter of Edmund and Margaret Stanley Fulkerson. She is survived by the following nieces and nephews. Ethel E. WILLIAMS, with whom she lived, Mrs. W. C. BECK of Tyrone, and J. C. WILLIAMS of Ebensburg. Services will be held tomorrow at 2 pm from the Hunter Lloyd Funeral Home at Irvona with the Rev. Donald Miles officiating. Interment will be in the Cambria Mills Cemetery at Glasgow, Cambria County."
- William FULKERSON....born 30 Jan 1817 in PA. Per Civil War pension files, he married to Sarah MOORE (b. ca. 1814) at Liberty Twp, Tioga Co., PA in 1838. They appeared on the 1840 Census living at Liberty Twp, with a son under 5 and Sarah reported 20-30 years old. The 1860 Census showed William again at Liberty, with Sarah - age 46 - and five children. Wife Sarah died soon after the loss of their son James, on 20 May 1865. William was listed on the Tioga Co. Docket Book as the administrator of his wife's estate, her will being probated on 9 Aug 1865. On the 1870 Census for Norton, Muskegon Co., Michigan, he and son Ezra lived very near one another and both were working on the railroad, as were most of their neighbors. William's occupation was "railroad jobber." His wife then was a Mary Jane, age 46, born in NY. He was listed on 1880 census for Fruitport, Muskegon Co., Michigan as a 63-yr-old, widowed farmer, born in PA, living with son Ezra. He was 74 when he or his family filed a Declaration for Dependent Father's Pension, on 20 Feb. 1891.
- James W. FULKERSON....b. ca. 1839 at Liberty Twp., Tioga Co., m. Mary Etta WILCOX [reportedly on 13 Feb 1862 at Liberty Twp., Tioga Co.]. James enlisted in the Union Army on 27 Feb 1864. Beginning in Sep 1864, while serving in Co. "B", 8th Regiment, Pennsylvania Cavalry near Peterburg, VA, James began to receive frequent medical care for "chronic diarrhea." Such was commonplace among soldiers in the Civil War, with illness killing far more of them than bullets. A furlough certificate issued by Lincoln army hospital in Feb 1865 stated he was permitted to go home to Liberty for a period of 10 days. It described him as 24 yrs old, 5'10", light complexion, grey eyes and brown hair. The Surgeon General's Office stated he died of "pulmonary consumption" (tuberculosis?) on 2 May 1865, just as the war was concluding. James' father and brother Ezra were witnesses for Mary's Claim for Widow's Army Pension on 23 May 1865, when she reported her age as 23. The Tioga Co. docket showed his estate was probated on 16 May 1866, administered by former wife Mary KELCE and Charles STOCKWELL. Mary remarried to Samuel KELCE (or KELTZ) before May 1866 and on the 1870 Census was living with her 29-yr-old husband and three children at Canton, Bradford Co., PA .
- Frances Emma FULKERSON.....28 Jul 1863-23 Dec 1942, b. at Canton, Bradford Co., PA, listed on 1870 Census. Nicknamed "Frankie," she m. Judd COE (1865-1934) on 25 Dec 1886 in Luzerne, PA. The 1900 Census showed them living at 307 Walnut Street in Clearfield, with Judd listed as a livery man. In 1910 he was living away from home at Johnstown, PA, working as a "custom blacksmith." Judd owned a mule-powered underground coal mine near Osceola Mills, PA, until about 1918, when local officials apparently ruled the operation was detrimental to the surface roads above the mine. In 1920 he was working as a blacksmith for a coal mine. Judd died at Philipsburg State Hospital near Osceola Mills, PA. His obituary said he died after an illness of two years, had been working at the Stine Foundry and Moshannon 10 (coal mine?), and left two daughters, Mrs. Raymond HALBERSHON and Mrs. Scott STABLEY. Frances then went to live with a half-sister, Mae KELTZ, on William Street in Williamsport, PA. She is buried in a small cemetery near Lock Haven, near some STABLEY grandchildren. A STABLEY descendant contributed much research on her, her father and grandfather.

- Catherine FULKERSON....born 21 July 1821
- Daniel C. FULKERSON....b. 8 Jun 1823-29 Jan 1876, was engaged in recruiting during the Civil War. A history of Gulich Township, Clearfield Co., PA tells us that "During the year 1850 the first saw-mill was built by Joseph Fry and Daniel Fulkerson. It was largely an experimental mill, as the machinery was rough and unmanageable. It was, however, a success, and having been placed at the headwaters of Little Muddy Run, it was never idle. It was afterward rebuilt and refitted." It goes on to state that, "The first school-house in the township was built by Joseph Fry, Henry Alleman and Daniel Fulkersen in 1855." (The same information appeared in the local newspaper, The Progress, in Clearfield, PA on 13 Jul 1950.)
Daniel and his wife Ellen were listed in the 1860 Census at Gulich, Clearfield Co., PA. She was 28, born in PA. There was a Clearfield County land warrant for 20 acres filed by a Daniel Fulkerson on 20 Nov 1874 (PA Archives, Series 3, Book XXV, p. 413). A " Biographical & Portrait Cyclopedia" of neighboring Cambria Co., PA (THE UNION PUBLISHING COMPANY, PHILADELPHIA, PA., 1896) lists his daughter Sue and indicates he was "a farmer and millwright, of Smith's Mills, Clearfield county, Pennsylvania." The "History of Tioga County Pennsylvania" R.C. Brown & Co. 1897 lists his son Benjamin and states Daniel's wife was Eleanor STEPHENS. The 1880 Census lists a widow "Ellen" FULKERSON and children living at Gulich, Clearfield Co., PA. She was keeping house, age 49, b. ca. 1831. She, her husband, her children and her parents were all b. in PA. She is listed with six children, all born by 1872. She is found again in the same town in the 1990 Census, listed as "Ellenora" and living with a daughter Myra, a son Clifford, a daughter Kate McGEE and a son "Ward." Not too far down was John Oaks Fulkerson with wife Malissa, their children and Samuel Oaks FULKERSON, John's father. [It appears most of the Fulkersons in this region were centered around Gulich Township, which was bounded on the north by Bigler and Woodward townships, on the east by part of the dividing line between Centre and Clearfield counties and part of the dividing line between Blair and Clearfield counties, on the south by part of the dividing line between Cambria and Clearfield counties, and on the west by Beccaria township. Some homes in the town were located in two counties.]
- Orien M. FULKERSON....b. ca. 1854, probably "Oreanna Myra" and named after her aunt. She was listed as "Miron" - 7 years old - on the 1860 Census. She's on the 1880 Census as a 26-yr-old school teacher at Gulich, Clearfield Co., PA in 1880, living with her mother and five siblings.
- Dr. Benjamin J. FULKERSON....b. ca. 1855, listed as a 25-yr-old student living at home in 1880. A county biography tells us he was "born in Gulich township, Clearfield county, Pennsylvania, March 7, 1855... He was educated at Reed Institute, Clarion county, Pennsylvania, and in 1873 began the study of medicine with Dr. W. H. Edwards, of Smiths Mills, Clearfield county. In 1874-75, he attended a course of lectures at Bellevue Medical College, New York, and in 1879-80, and in 1880-81, he attended lectures at the University of New York City, where he was graduated in March, 1881. In August of that year, he located at Little Marsh, in Chatham township, Tioga county, where he built up quite an extensive practice, and became widely known as a good physician. In 1895 he removed to Tyrone, Pennsylvania, where he now resides and pursues his profession. Dr. Fulkerson was married September 1, 1881, to Ida J. Alleman, a daughter of Henry and Catherine (Shoemaker) Alleman, of Allemans, Clearfield county. They are the parents of three children, viz: Katie, Eleanor and Daniel. In politics, he is a stanch Republican, and is a member of the I. O. O. F., the K. of H., and the K. O. T. M. societies. "

She m. M. L. GLASGOW (b. 1858) on 4 Jun 1881. They lived in Cambria Co., PA on "one hundred and eighteen acres of farm land, underlaid with coal, which is a part of the original tract of land that belonged to his grandfather, John Glasgow."

SMITHMILLS - Mrs. E. M. Fulkerson. Ella M. Fulkerson 79, died of a heart attack on January 19, 1944 at her home in Smithmills. Mrs. Fulkerson, the third daughter of Henry and Catherine (Shoemaker) Alleman, was born in Allemans, Pa, on September 13, 1862. At the death of her mother in 1881 she took charge of the home of her father and later at the time of his death in 1896 she and her brother, C V Alleman assumed charge of the Henry Alleman mercantile business and post office. They continued in this capacity for a number of years. In 1903 she was united in marriage to H. E. Fulkerson and took up residence at their home at Maple Lawn near Smithmills, where she and her husband spent the remainder of their lives. The deceased was a life-long member of the Mt. Zion Lutheran Church of Glasgow, and at the time of her death was one of the oldest members of this church. She also attended and contributed generously to other churches, particularly to the Methodist Church of Janesville.

Liberty township, Tioga Co., PA, m. on 11 Aug 1853 in Liberty
township to Mary A. KEAGLE (b. at that place Feb. 1830). He was "living
in Blossburg, Pa., when the war broke out and enlisted from there Feb.,
1864, at the age of 37 years as a private in Co. K, 98th Pa. V.I., 3d
Brig., 2d Div., 6th A.C.; he was slightly injured in crossing a bridge

a short time as hospital nurse near Arlington Heights; he took part in
all the engagements and skirmishes in which his Regt. participated
during his term of service and was granted an honorable discharge June
19, 1865, at Washington, D.C. " (from Biographies of Tioga County
Civil War Soldiers extracted from PRESIDENTS, SOLDIERS, STATESMEN).
His occupation was carpenter. The 1880 Census found him at Blossburg, Tioga Co., PA, with his wife and 5 children: Nora (20), Charles (18), William (18), Levi (15) and Jerry (23, with wife May, 19).

It also listed an Enoch S. Fulkerson as a carpenter living on N. Williamson, and an Enoch appears in the same directory in 1908 as a retired carpenter living on N. Main St. with wife Phoebe. Perhaps Enoch was a missing son, or a cousin of Charles and Levi, or perhaps the Enoch born in 1828 lived well beyond 1893.

- Jacob FULKERSON...twin
- Freddy FULKERSON....buried at the Blossburg Cemetery, no dates listed.
- Sarah FULKERSON....born 10 Jan 1830, reportedly in Liberty Twp, Tioga Co., PA. Two other researchers state this is the Sarah FULKERSON who married Jacob MANEVAL about 1840 or 1850. One gave her a birthyear of 1822 in order to make the stretch of having children born as early as 1842. The Salladasburg Cemetery in Lycoming Co., PA, contains the graves of Jacob MANEVAL (1828-1928) and his wife Sarah MANEVAL (d. 28 Dec 1871, age 41 years). This appears to confirm that he married a Sarah born in 1830. The cemetery also contains the graves of 5 of their children, born between 1854 and 1869. Evidence of the marriage is currently lacking.

My Grand parents were French Protestant (Huguenots), who fled from Daupine, France, with their children, leaving all their possessions behind. It was quick flight or sure death for them." He emigrated to America in 1737 with his mother, stepfather and siblings. His obituary, preserved in the archives of Schoenech Moravian Church, said he was the oldest of 2 children of Francois and Louisa Frache (1695-1767) CLAVELL.

been the orphan of Robertson W. (d. 1839) and Sarah Turner GRANT of
nearby Surry Co., NC.; Rebecca MARSHALL, age 18; and Julia JENKINS, age
7. Jacob's occupation was listed as "Clerk."
Later information indicates he was associated with the Moravian order.
The Moravian Diary dated 15 Jan 1853 (Salem, NC)
included the following: "4. Br. Elias Vogler has bought the house of
Francis Schober, and Br. Jacob Fulkerson that of Benjamin Warner, and
to this the Col. had no objection." The J.L. Fulkerson storehouse,
which he sold to L.E. BRIETZ, was subsequently sold by Albert BRIETZ
(executor) to a Mr. DOUTHIT per the Surry County People' Press
of 26 Feb 1880. The 1880 census found Jacob and Sarah still at Salem.

Robert moved his family west to Indiana, apparently near Elkhart, about 1840 and remarried (2nd) to Ann Maria SMITH (b. 20 Nov 1826) on 5 Nov 1844. Information on their children is from a family Bible, dating from 1817, which belonged to his son. The 1850 Census showed his children Lucy and Cyrus living with their uncle William FULKERSON in Lewis Twp, Northumberland Co., PA. The 1860 Census showed him living at Cleveland Twp, Elkhart Co., Indiana. In 1870 he was 66, living in Elkhart with Ann and seven-year-old Frank. His real property was worth $5,000, and his personal property $6,700. The 1880 Census found him living with son Charles at Elkhart, Elkhart Co., Indiana. It listed Robert as married but did not report his wife in the household.
- Lucy Ann FULKERSON....b. ca. 1831
- Cyrus FULKERSON....b. 30 Aug 1833 in PA .
He was listed on the 1860 Census at Cleveland Twp, Elkhart Co., Indiana. He moved west to Iowa shortly afterward and m. Sarah Emmarylis STEPHENSON on 15 Sep 1861. A Calhoun County history, published late in his lifetime (shared by a descendant, along with photos from this branch), tells us his history:
The name Cyrus Fulkerson is inseparably interwoven with the
History of the pioneer development in Calhoun County. He has for
many years maintained his residence here. At the time of his arrival
here the land was still in the possession of the government. The prairies
were wild and unimproved, pioneer conditions existed and many
hardships and difficulties had to be borne by the early settlers that laid
the foundation for this part of Calhoun County.
As noted above, Cyrus and Sarah had ten children:
Cyrus Fulkerson was born in Montour County, Pennsylvania, August 30,
1833. He is the son of Robert and Leah (Bauchert) Fulkerson and were of
Holland descent. The mother Leah died when Cyrus was only two or three
days old, leaving a daughter Lucy. The father Robert was a farmer and
carpenter and after his wife Leah died moved with his children to Indiana in
1840. Robert remarried and died in 1882 at the age of seventy eight years.
Cyrus was educated in mathematics and surveying. He came West with a
covered wagon and two yoke of cattle driving across the prairies from Elkhart,
Indiana, camping along the way and arriving at the land he had previously
bought in Jackson Township, Calhoun County, Iowa in 1860. Spending his
first winter along the Raccoon river.
Before coming to Iowa he had engaged in the manufacture of shingles he
thought that he would do the same here and ordered a shingle machine and
supplied shingles for many people at Lake City and surrounding area.
On September 15, 1861 he married Sarah E. Stephenson, daughter of James
and Mary Stephenson whom had came West in 1856 Settling in Greene County,
Iowa. The winter following was one of the most harsh being that fall they had
prairie fires that burned all the hay so leaving all of the cattle to starve to death,
only some of the many hardships of the pioneer family had to endure.
In the fall of 1861 they moved to the site on the land he had bought near
Lake City and in present times part of Lake City, Iowa. He bought the land for
six dollars an acre with a log cabin on it then bought fifty acres East of the
ground he already had. There he farmed with his wife and set up his shingle
mill. As they prospered they bought more land until they had amassed One
Hundred and Seventy acres of prime farm ground. They platted off Forty acres
which was divided into city lots becoming the Fulkerson Addition of Lake City.
Cyrus and Sarah had also bought and sold much real estate here and Des
Moines and their family had grown also they were blessed with ten children
George, William, Elmer (who died at the age of fourteen months), C. Perry,
Walter Scott, Cyrus B., Vinnie Bell, Emma L., Frank (died at the age of
eighteen months) and Mary Edna.
Cyrus Fulkerson served as township clerk at an early date before the counties
were divided, he also served as school director for a number of years. They are
indeed honored pioneers of the county, having witnessed almost all of it's
entire development. The only buildings at Lake City when they arrived were
the Old wooden Court House and a residence occupied by Charles Amy and his
There were many Deer and Elk. Wheat brought only twenty five cents a
bushel and flour cost ten dollars for one hundred pounds, Des Moine was the
nearest market, Cyrus had to drive his oxen to gain the markets and to get
his mail. Later a post office was built nearer to them.
The old log cabin was moved out onto the prairie and became part of a residence,
Indians were also part of the area and stopped and times speaking of how
primitive the area at that time.
Cyrus cast his first presidential vote for Lincoln in 1864 and was a staunch
Republican, but he never sought or desired public office, he gained wealth
and respect and was widely known as one of the areas first pioneers.

He directed his executors to sell his estate and distribute the proceeds as follows: American Bible Society, $500; Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church, $400; Board of Domestic Missions of the Presbyterian Church, $500; Board of Education of the Presbyterian Church, $300; Trustees of the Presbyterian Church (to aid disabled ministers), $300; Warrior Run Presbyterian Congregation, $300 trust; Nancy McKnight, $2000; Mary E.

New information from the 1850 Census (courtesy of Carol Townsend) shows he was then about 49 years old, a farmer with land valued at $16,000. His household included Sarah Fulkerson (age 50), Nancy McKnight (age 50), Elizabeth Shannon (age 22), Lucy Fulkerson (age 19) and Cyrus Fulkerson (age 16). It appears that the latter were his niece and nephew, children of his brother Robert.

An early "atlas" of "MACON TOWNSHIP, Town Five South, Range Five East" lists property owners, including an "E.R. FULKERSON establishment." The 1850 Census showed him employed as a farmer and mechanic. (The 1830 Census for Macon lists a Geo. R. FUKERSON...possibly a brother?)

Howard D. FALKERSON....appeared on 1900 Census living at Easton, Northampton County. Born in PA in 1864, he was a carpenter. He'd been married 16 years to Mary, born in 1864 in Wales. Their children were Claude (15), Carl (10), and Helen (1).
Isaac FULKERSON....m. Margaret FAITH on 11 Sep 1814 at Somerset, PA. A descendant contacted me in March 2006 to add information about a daughter Luticia.
- Luticia FULKERSON.....Mar 1842-28 Aug 1921. AKA Lottie, she was born in Ohio. Her death certificate stated her father as "Isaac Falkson" from England and mother as "Margarette Faith" from Ireland. On Census listings she stated her father's birth place was NY or NJ and that her mother's was PA. She may have lived in Washington Co., OH during her early years. She married (1st) to George COLVIN about 1860. She gave birth to 14 children, 8 of whom lived. George and Luticia lived in Pleasants, Tyler and Wetzel counties, WV. The first of these, Pleasants County, is directly across the Ohio River from Washington Co., OH. The 1880 Census found her ("Lutishe") at Union, Tyler Co., WV. Luticia m. (2nd) to John MAINE in 1900 after George's death. She died of Bright's Disease ["a class of diseases of the kidneys (acute and chronic nephritis) which have as their most prominent symptom the presence of albumen in the urine, and frequently also the coexistence of dropsy."] in the Franklin District, Marshall Co., WV on 28 Aug 1921 [WV death certificate]. Her known children were:
- Mary E. COLVIN.....1861-, probable, not confirmed, not found on 1880 Census
- Martha A. COLVIN....1865-, b. in WV per 1880 Census
- Charles Franklin COLVIN....1867-1957, b. in WV per 1880 Census, d. in Wetzel Co., WV
- Sarah B. COLVIN....1872-, b. in WV per 1880 Census
- Joseph Sanford COLVIN....1873-1948, b. in WV per 1880 Census, d. in WV
- Susan C. COLVIN....1877-, b. in WV per 1880 Census
- George R. COLVIN....1878-, b. in WV per 1880 Census
- Elroy COLVIN....Jul 1887-
The descendant who offered the above also made the observation that an "Unattached Ohio Fulkerson" page on this site describes an Isaac Fulkerson, b. ca. 1828 in OH, living in Washington County, OH from 1850 through 1880. She feels this Isaac was possibly Luticia's older brother. The 1850 Census showed a 22-yr-old Isaac with a 19-yr-old wife Mary and a 6-yr-old Letitia. Other researchers believe that Luticia and Isaac had a sister Mary Ann FULKERSON who married a Thomas HALL.
Jacob FULKERSON....on the 1850 Census, b. ca. 1828, living in a boarding house in Beccaria, Clearfield, PA. Daniel, Samuel and Edmund FULKERSON were living in the same boarding house. The latter three were probably the sons of Jeremiah FULKERSON above. This may have been a nickname for Jeremiah's son Enoch, who was b. in 1828, or may have been a twin.
James FULKERSON.....reported on the 1870 Census at Palmer, Northhampton County, age 19, working as a miller's apprentice. Living with him in a boarding house is 17-year-old Edwin FULKERSON, possibly a brother. No other Fulkersons lived in that town. An Edwin and James FOLKENSON are found in that county in 1880, and other Folkensons are listed in an 1873 business directory.
Jane FULKERSON...listed as a daughter of John FULKINSON of Clinton [Co., PA] when her 16 Oct 1850 marriage to Jacob ANDERSON was reported in the 13 Nov 1850 issue of the Hunterdon County Democrat [NJ].
John FULKERSON.....b. ca. 1805 in PA, m. Jerushas FREEZE (FRIEZE, FRIES) who was b. about 1821 in Chillisquaque Twp, Northumberland Co., PA. They were married there on 11 Jul 1839. Based upon that location, this John may have been a descendant of the John FULKERSON above who was born in 1761 and moved to Northumberland Co., PA in 1785.
- Henrietta FULKERSON....b. ca. 1840 in PA
