Philip FULKERSON was baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church at New Brunswick,
New Jersey on 23 Mar 1753. He was commissioned as a Captain in the 2nd Battalion of Colonel Quick's Regiment, Somerset County Militia, almost a year before the Declaration of Independence. He reportedly married Elizabeth BRUNER about that same year.
NOTE: For decades, it has been more or less oral history that both Philip and his brother John married two BRUNER sisters. There is no known marriage record for Philip and Elizabeth.
However, confirmation of brother John's marriage to Margaret BRUNER came to us on page 25 of John's Revolutionary War pension application, in which his son Philip reported both the year they were married and her maiden name.
Further information on the origin of the Bruner sisters comes to us in 2010, in the form of research by a Bruner descendant.

Philip took his family to Jefferson Co., Kentucky (then part of Virginia) by 1782. There are two Mercer Co., KY records concerning Philip: he and brother Jacob appraised the estate of a John Gordon in February 1792, and his son John was born there about 1795. He moved to Nelson Co., KY about 1803. He was living in Ohio Co., KY when he made his will on 21 Jun 1813. His will was proved in August 1813.

Per one family history, Philip's life was seriously affected by the events of the Civil War. Immediately after the Quantrill raid on Lawrence, Kansas in August 1863, the Union army retaliated against the mostly-Southern sympathizing residents of Cass, Bates, Jackson and Vernon counties. In the infamous
General Order #11,
the Union commanders required Northern sympathizers living more than a mile from a town to abandon their farms and move to Union military camps, and required the Southern-leaning populace to leave the state of Missouri altogether. In rapid order the population of Cass County went from ten thousand to just a few hundred, and various guerrillas on both sides burned everything in sight. For years afterward this devastated area was known as the Burnt District. Philip and other Fulkersons went back to Kentucky, then returned to their farms at the close of the war. The book "Tears and Turmoil, Order #11" by Joanne Chiles Eakin, tells of his ordeal:
"Their house was burned by Bushwhackers with about 5 minutes notice and they went back to Kentucky due to Order #11, to return in a few years when the war was over. At least one of the three trips was made on foot with her carrying a small child and him carrying everything they owned on his back."
For more information about Philip, see the letter, written by his grandson Ralph Judson FULKERSON.

An Ohio Co., KY records states that a "Mrs. Elizabeth (McConnell and Fulkerson) DEXTER, a native of Muhlenberg Co., KY," married a Mr. KIMBLEY. A Kimbley researcher tells us that he was Francis E.

Fulkerd was listed as a charter member at the founding of the Mt. Pleasant Church, Burnt Prairie township, White County, Illinois in July 1830.

He and Nancy and Mary had at least 9 children.
According to Kentucky - A History of the State [by W. H. Perrin, J H Battle and G C Kniffin, 8th Edition published 1888, page 953], "Fulkerd when a young man, about 1812, came with his parents, who were among the early settlers, to Ohio Co, KY, then almost a wilderness. In this county Fulkerd Fulkerson was married, and after attaining his majority improved a farm on a part of his father's purchase, where he remained until the fall of 1823, when he sold and removed to White County, Illinois, where he bought a farm, and resided for some thirty-five years. His wife died in 1850 and in 1858, he sold his farm and returned to KY making his home with his children until his death, which occurred in April 1867 in his seventy-second year. "
It's possible he was in Indiana much earlier. A history of the founding of Ohio Twp, in Warrick Co., IN, tells us:
On the 13th of may, 1816, an election was held at the house of William Berry, in this township, for the purpose
of choosing a delegate to the Constitutional Convention preparatory to the admission of Indiana into the Union as a
State. Thirty-eight votes were cast, of which Daniel Grass received thirty-five, Bailey Anderson two, and Eneas
McAllister one. Samuel Snyder was President of the election board, and William Berry, Joab Garrett and Fulkerd
Fulkerson were Judges, and the Clerks were Azel W. Dorsey and William Ross.

John A FULKERSON.....1842-
Malcolm Baxter FULKERSON.....21 Oct 1849-27 Jul 1929, b. at Paradise, Muhlenberg Co., KY, d. near Norman, OK. Malcolm served in the Home Guard at age 12 to help protect the community from both Confederate and Yankee depredations. Attended an academy at Hartford, KY, was a teacher for a number of years, then m. one of his former students, Boadicea BROWN (1858-1932) in 1879.
Ten years later, after trying to augment his teaching income by moonlighting in the coal mines, he decided to move his family to Norman, Oklahoma where a new territorial university was being planned. It was the summer of 1889, the year of the great Oklahoma land rush. They bought city lots in Oklahoma City, Ardmore and Norman, and in November 1889 settled in a they built at the corner of University Blvd and Tonhawa St. in Norman. He dug a well, one of the few in town, and sold water for a nickel a barrel, delivered. Malcolm helped found the Norman Building and Loan Association, served on the City Commission in 1892 and ran for the territorial legislature.
About 1900 they bought a 160-acre farm in the Little River bottom at Denver (OK), 9 miles east of Norman. Here they had about 60 acres of arable land and 100 acres of hill pasture and woodland, which they found suitable for cotton, alfalfa, pecan trees, wild plums and grapes, gardens, chickens, cows, pigs, horses, mules, goats, bees and dogs. They had a sorghum mill high on one hill and spent summers making molasses; on another hill was a croquet court.
About 1908 Boadicea inherited some money, and they bought land at Fort Stockton in the presumably healthful climate of southwest Texas. The family relocated there for almost a decade - while maintaining their home at Denver - and ran a hotel, but by 1917 (perhaps when son Grover was killed) they moved back to Oklahoma. Malcolm became deaf in later years, but remained active. At the age of 79 he spent a hot summer day trimming his mulberry hedge, then dived into the cool water of his swimming hole on Little River, and died of a heart attack. Malcolm and Boadicea are buried at Norman IOOF Cemetery. They had 9 children:
