      SOURCE: Obituary, as published in the Jasper Newsboy, Thursday, 5 February 1948, page 10 Transcription is courtesy of Yolanda Pepper Miller

      Her death certificate shows the following: State of Texas, County of Angelina, City Lufkin, Angelina County Hospital Length of Residence 3 years Address Sheppard Ave. Female. White. Widowed. DOB December 7th, 1873 Age 74 years 1 month 18 days Housewife Born Vernon Parish, LA to James FULLEN born in Alabama (?) and Katherine PARKER born in Alabama. Informant Mrs. Effie WESTBERRY 606 Culverhouse St Lufkin TX Buried Ebenezer Cem. Jasper County on January 26th, 1948. W. C. Stringer Funeral Home DOD January 25th, 1948. Cause of Death Diabetic Coma 2-3 days Contributory causes Possible Brain Hemorrhage (5 days) & Hypostatic Pneumonia (2 days) due to accident (hit by car in Lufkin).

      She may have been born prior to 1873, as the records in the Fullen's family Bible show the oldest daughter as "Emily, (born) 1870."

      Peggy Tanner McDonald instead shows her as the daughter of William (sic) FULLEN and Catherine E. STROYON of Center, Shelby County, Texas. It appears that Catherine Parker married a Mr. Stroyon after the death of Jim Fullen, as she is living with Emily and Vernon and listed by this name in both 1910 and 1930.
