      See also the notes for John Brooks Fuller. Nancy Howard lived with the orphaned children of John and Mary (Watson) Fuller in Sabine County per the 1880 census, listed simply as a "family member." She was living with the family of Fannie Fuller Burkhalter in Sabine County in 1900. And according to the 1920 Sabine County census, when Nancy was age 95, the widowed Mary R. Fuller, age 60, was living with her as a companion.  Blanche Finley Toole wrote me that Nancy and Ruth Howard were sisters, and that Nancy's fiancee was killed in the Civil War. Nancy never married, and was buried holding his picture and her bible.
