Generation: 1

  1. 1.  James C. Fullen was born Bef 1826, Pennsylvania; died Aft 1848, Republic Of Texas.

    Notes:

    Little is known about James C. Fullen, even his exact name is uncertain.  W. F. Fullen, a grandson, reported that both his father AND his grandfather were named JOHN W. FULLEN. He reported this in 1933 however, some 80 years after his grandfather's death, when he was completing his father's death certificate. The name John is inconsistent with several published histories of Sabine County, all of which list the progenitor of the Fullen family of Sabine County as James W. Fullen. No sources are cited.

    In Gifford White's book, FIRST SETTLERS OF SABINE COUNTY, TEXAS, there is a James C. Fuller (sic) listed as receiving 320 acres of land on 4 Mar 1844. The Texas archives show that this land grant was actually made to a James C. Fullen. Due to both the time frame and the relative rarity of the last name Fullen, it is assumed that James C. was the husband of Rebecca, and father of William and John.

    What is known is that Mr. Fullen and his 18 year old wife, Rebecca, moved to the Republic of Texas sometime before the birth of their son William around 1844. They had two more sons over the next three years, and he probably died sometime around or after 1848, when his youngest son was born. He is listed on neither the 1850 Sabine County census, nor is his death reported on the 1850 Mortality Schedule. In the Family Bible owned by Catherine Parker Fullen, thought to be a daughter in law, the following entry is found under Burials: Daddy Fullen 1850.

    Even his birthdate is unknown. Presumably he would have been the same age, or older, than his wife Rebecca, who was born circa 1826. The 1850 census indicates that both Rebecca and her husband were born in Pennsylvania. As Rebecca was the only adult in the household, she probably reported this information herself. It appears that their families must have migrated to the South when they were young however. W. F. Fullen did not recall his grandparent's Pennsylvania orgins, but rather reported his grandparents born in North Carolina and Tennessee. On the 1870 census, their oldest son William reported that both his parents were both born in Pennsylvania, while his younger brother John reported them both born in Alabama. In 1900, John reported their place of birth as Tennessee.

    There are other families from Pennsylvania on the 1850 Sabine County, Texas census, but none seemed to live nearby the young widow, who was in household number 81.  Rebecca's closest neighbors were the Jackson and Davidson families from North Carolina and Tennessee, the Oliphant's from Mississippi, and the Smith's from Virginia. Families with Pennsylvania origins were headed by 70 year old David Welch, household #138; 70 year old George Koher, household #180; 94 year old Henry Stagner, household #191; and 90 year old Michael Widner, household #192. There were a scattering of other families from Pennsylvania as well, but none have obvious links to the Fullen's.

  1. 2.  William Morrison FullenWilliam Morrison Fullen Descendancy chart to this point (1.James1) was born 16 Sep 1844, County Of Sabine, Republic Of Texas; died 28 Jul 1926, Hemphill, Sabine County, Texas; was buried , Gravel Hill Cemetery, Sabine County, Texas.

    Notes:

    William enlisted in Co F, 11th Texas Regiment CSA under Col. Roberts and Cpt. Silbey on 17 February 1862. He was discharged on 3 August 1862, cause not stated. According to Robert Cecil McDaniel's book CITIZEN SOLDIERS OF SABINE COUNTY, TEXAS, he was wounded at war. His younger brother John served with him in the same unit.

    Around 1868, William and John married sisters, Margaret and Jane Allen. Neither family can be located on the 1870 Sabine County census. It is possible they were simply missed in this first census in the aftermath of the Civil War.  At the time of the 1880 census, William & Elizabeth and John & Jane lived in adjoining homes. Listed in William's home was 60 year old Celie Payne, a servant born in Georgia. Could she have been a former slave of Elizabeth Allen's step-Grandmother, Jane Payne Allen?

    William's confederate pension application listed his occupation as Carpenter. On census records, he was reported as a farmer.

    His younger children, Lena, Ginnie, and Washington Fullen are all shown on the Sabine County 1890 Scholastic census.  The very youngest, eight year old Britton, remained at home.

    In 1900, sons William and Lawrence lived on either side of their parent's home. Washington and Britton were still at home. According to the 1910 census, William and Margaret had been married for 42 years, and had a total of 6 children, 5 of whom were still living.

    On some census records, his middle initial was shown as "R." However, according to his tombstone, his middle name was Morrison.

    In 1924 he served as a witness to the confederate pension application for Susannah Halbert Mason, along with witnesse W W Halbert. Both signed with their marks.

    Notes:

    Most official documents and census records simply show him as either John Fullen or John W. Fullen. His middle name is not known with certainty.

    Frances Simmons [mailto:fsimmons@ruralcomm.com], in an email dated June 10, 2000, wrote that she discovered that John's middle name was Willoughby "last year at the Fullen family reunion by looking at notes and articles they had kept.  I think one article called it the James Willoughby Fullen reunion.  Before that I only had James W. Fullen...." However, Danice Hurt, a direct descendant through son William Franklin Fullen, emailed in January, 2012 that "my mother (Bobbie Sue Fullen Lunsford) has always told me that his name was John Whitney Fullen.   He lived with Frank & Nannie Fullen when my mother was a child.  Unfortunately, so far I have been unable to find any documentation as to the middle name, your website is the first time I had heard of any other name."  A third possibility is that his middle name was Whitaker, as this is the middle name of his eldest son.

    John and his brother, William were orphaned sometime before 1860. They lived with their stepfather, Solomon Causey, and his new wife until the Civil War.

    John was just 16 when he enlisted in the Confederate States Army in February, 1862, alongside his brother William. John served in Company F, 11th Texas Regiment, from February, 1862 through February, 1864.  The 11th Texas Infantry Regiment was placed under the command of Colonel Oran M. Roberts (a later governor of Texas). The 11th was marched to Arkansas where it combined into Randal's Brigade, McCulloch's Division in September 1862. The regiment is later moved to Louisiana. They combined forces with Green's 15th and 18th Texas Infantry on November 1, 1863. The combined force went south from Opelousas, Louisiana toward Grand Coteau in what Roberts described as a "rapid and fatiguing march." The 11th was ordered forward towards the enemy by the commander of the Confederate District of Western Louisiana, Major General Richard Taylor. On November 3, 1863, they were deployed in the Battle of Bayou Bourbeau. Several companies were sent out as skirmishers. The remainder of the 11th, including Company F, were deployed on the left wing of the lines, roughly two miles south of Opelusas. The infantry force retired from the field after approximately 3 hours of combat. The 11th reported 4 killed, 15 wounded, and 32 missing. Union casualties in the whole engagement numbered approximately 716 men. On November 4, 1863, the 11th joined the rest of Walker's Division in holding the country from Simsport to Opelousa against future assaults by Union forces.

    I was unable to locate John W. Fullen in Sabine County, or anywhere else,  at the time of the 1870 census. It was possible he was simply missed by the enumerator due to the turmoil of the reconstruction.

    John W. Fullen made an application for a Pre-emption grant of land in Sabine County on August 12, 1876. In this application he, and two witnesses (G. Guthrie and A.C. Woolam), swore that he was a bona fide settler on vacant public land, and the head of a family. Pre-emption grants were made after statehood, and from 1866 to 1898 up to 160 acres could be claimed. Homesteaders were required to live on the land for three years and make improvements (such as building a barn) in order to qualify for a pre-emption grant of 160 acres. He patented his application on December 11, 1879. In his affadavit John Fullen swore, and his two witnesses affirmed, that he had occupied the land he was claiming for three consecutive years, from Sept. 30, 1876 through the current date. Witnesses were J. P. Payne and Wm. W. Weatherred.  J. P. Payne was a step-son of Thompson Allen, the grandfather of John's wife, Jane Allen Fullen. The original Sabine Preemption Grand is on file at the Texas General Land Office, File #68.

    As of 1880, John was living in Bronson and working as a farmer. He and Jane had four children at the time: James, Leala (Lula), Viola, and John. Viola can be found on the actual census microfilm, but is missing from Toole and Speight's transcription of the 1880 census.

    None of his children appeared to have been recorded as attending school at the time of the 1890 Scholastic census,unlike those of his brother William, who had attended school. Presumably they were needed at home to help John and Jane on the farm.

    According to the Sabine County 1910 Federal Census, John and Jane Fullen had been married for 42 years. They had had 9 children, 7 of whom were still living.

    In his Confederate Pension Application file, the Application for Mortuary Warrant indicates that he died of Bright's Disease (kidney disease) in the home of his son, W.F. Fullen of Bronson.

    Several photos exist of John Fullen. One is a family grouping, but only he and Jane have been identified positively.

  3. 4.  James C. Fullen Descendancy chart to this point (1.James1) was born Abt 1848, Sabine County, Texas; died Abt 1883, Texas.

    Notes:

    James C is listed as a two year old at the time of the 1850 Sabine County census, along with this two older brothers and widowed mother. However, since neither James nor his mother can be located on any subsequent Sabine County census records, it had been long assumed that he probably died young.

    Amy Fullen of Dallas, however, states that the James DID survive and grow into adulthood. In March, 2005, in response to a query from Melinda Strong, she emailed the following explanation: "According to the family bible...Rebecca or "Becky" as they called her did die in 1852, now family lore says that she did marry Solomon but that he was a mean man and she died soon after marrying him. Family lore meaning aunt Doris's husband, he is the only old timer left with us, he just turned 101 last month. Well he says that James C moved in with his uncle James and his wife as he was the youngest, this I guess would have been the brother of either James W or Rebecca, he is not sure whose brother he was, just that James lived with them and worked on their farm until he married....[Aunt Doris's husband] also has all the genealogy work that his wife did on the family and he is the source of the family bible as well." She further indicated that "I was given the bible upon...Doris's death, it seems that no one else in the family collects these as I do. That was some 15 years ago I received her treasure trove. It did not say anything about who they were, where they might be buried, or what towns they lived in, just the names and dates."

    Amy had scans of the "Birth, Marriages & Burials" pages from the bible posted on her website, however the title page or publication information from the bible were note posted, so it is currently not known exactly when these names and dates were recorded, and by whom. This could account for some of the seeming discrepencies of the Bible notes with other records. Amy's website is privatized, but a password can be obtained from the site administrator. The bible scans are also reproduced in Amy's book, the "The Fullen and Post Family Genealogy Book" by Ameth Carmicheal. This is Amy Fullen's pen name. The book can be purchased from at www.lulu.com .

    In early 2006, Amy posted to her website that "James C Fullen was taken in by Powell W. Fullen and his wife Sarah. This couple is seen nearby Becky and her sons on the 1850 census but on all other census records they are listed as Fuller's." It does appear, from examining the census microfilm, that Powell's last name could have been FULLEN. He is indexed by Ancestry.com as Powell FURLER, and in shown in Schuluter and Toole's 1850 census transcription as Powell FULLER. James could have lived with Powell Fullen after his Mother died in 1852. However, he is not listed with Powell and Sarah on the 1860 San Augustine County Census, or on any subsequent census records.

    His birth information, as shown in the scan of BIRTHS recorded in the Fullen Bible, was as follows:

    J C Fullen 1848

    His marriage information, also listed under UNIONS in the Bible, is shows as follows:

    JC & Catherine 1868

  1. 5.  William Ashley Fullen Descendancy chart to this point (2.William2, 1.James1) was born 22 Jun 1871, Milam, Sabine County, Texas; died 16 Oct 1943, Newton County, Texas; was buried , Gravel Hill Cemetery, Sabine County, Texas.

    Notes:

    William lived next door to his parents at the time of the 1900 Sabine County Census. He had been married to Minnie for seven years at the time of the census, and it appears their first two sons, Ashley and Sidney had already died.

    W.A. Fullen, 72 Dies of Stroke at Newton Home: Services for Father of Three Beaumonters to be held this afternoon at Antioch Church Near Bronson  (Newton, Texas, Oct 16 SPL):

    W.A. Fullen, 72, father of Otis E. Fullen, W. B. Fullen and Mrs. Basil Kee of Beaumont, died of a stroke at his home on a farm near here early Saturday morning. Funeral services will be held at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon in the Antioch Baptist Church in Sabine county, eight miles east of Bronson with Rev. Mr. Harrell of Newton and Rev. Jack Lee of Farrsville officiating. Burial will be in the family plot in the Gravel Hill community. Mr. Fullen was married three times. His first wife was Miss Minnie Ferguson and of this marriage the following six sons and daughters survive: Ferman Fullen of Port Arthur, W. V. and Otis E. Fullen of Beaumont, Mrs. Basil Kee of Beaumont, Mrs. Kelly Fogg of New Orleans, LA, and Mrs. Charles Adkins of El Paso. Mr. Fullen was then married to Miss Nettie Weaver and four children of this union survive. They are Mrs. Ramsey Simmons, Mrs. Ramsey Smith, Mrs. J.R. Bobbitt and J. Burdis Fullen, all of Newton County. Mr. Fullen's third wife, the former Mrs. Emma Weaver, to whom he was married 20 years ago, survives, as well as a number of grandchildren. Pallbearers at the services will be five sons-in-law, Kelley Fogg, Ramsey Simmons, Ramsey Smith, Basil Kee and J. B. Bobbitt and a brother-in-law, Hampton Boyett (husband of Mittie WEAVER). (Hand written on the bottom of the clipping was Enterprise 10/17/47, however, both Pam Mahon and his tombstone confirm his date of death as 16 October 1943).

    The family moved to Newton County circa 1925.

    According to the following marriage information, Birdwell, R.D. to A.A. Fullen 7 Mar 1898 by W.T. Harvil, M.G. The 1900 Census shows A.A. Fullen to be named Alice A., and that she was born in approximately 1881. I am assuming she is a daughter of John and Jane Fullen, and not of William and Elizabeth Fullen, for the following reasons:

    1) There appear to have been only two Fullen Household's in Sabine County in 1881; that of William Fullen and that of John Fullen. It is assumed one of these two men was her father.

    2) Alice would have been too young to be listed with either Fullen family in 1880. The census for 1890, when she was age 9, was destroyed. She was married in 1898, so is listed with her husband in 1900. This is why she will not be found listed with either family on census records.

    3) According to the Sabine County 1910 Federal Census, John and Jane Fullen had been married for 42 years. They had had 9 children, 7 of whom were still living. By examining other census information, eight of these nine total children can be accounted for. I believe Alice to be the ninth. William and Margaret had also been married for a total of 42 years. They had 6 children, 5 of whom were still living. By examining other census records, all six can be accounted for.

    4) On the 1890 Scholastic Census, Lena, 13, Ginnie 11, and Washington 8 were recorded as attending No. 57, Bethany. Surely if Alice were one of their siblings, she would have been in attendance as well. She and Washington were both born circa 1881. By way of contrast, none of the children of John and Jane Fullen were recorded on the 1890 Scholastic Census. Presumably they were needed at home for farmwork.

    Alice married Rush David Birdwell 7 Mar 1898, Sabine County, Texas. Rush (son of James Andrew Birdwell and Mary Alice Cogburn) was born 19 Dec 1877, Milam, Sabine County, Texas; died 14 May 1966, Weslaco, Hidalgo County, Texas. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    A digital image of her actual Texas Death certificate is viewable online at FamilySearch.org, Texas Deaths, 1890-1976. She was shown as a housewife, and the daughter of John W. Fullen. The informant was Beatrice Becton, presumably her daughter.

    Daisie married James Levi Becton 3 Dec 1905, Sabine County, Texas. James (son of Levi Edward Becton and Emily A. Humphreys) was born 25 Dec 1883, Sabine County, Texas; died 29 Jul 1961, Houston, Harris County, Texas; was buried , Rosevine Cemetery, Sabine County, Texas. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    His Texas Death Certificate, viewable online at FamilySearch.org, Texas Deaths, 1890-1976, show that he was a retired poultry farmer. The informant was his daughter, Mrs. Elvin Edgar.

    His burial information, as shown in the scan of BURIALS recorded in the Fullen bible, was as follows:

    Willoughby May 12th 1896 Aged thirteen years 2 days

    Could it be possible that the information relating to his death is not correct? Sharon Leamon descends from a Willoughby Simon Fullen, born May 10 1871. On his 1933 death certificate his dad is listed as Jim Fuller (Fullen) and his mother as a Parker, with no first name shown. Both his parents were shown as being born in Texas.

    So could this Willoughby actually be Sharon Leamon's ancestor, living into his sixties instead of dying at age 13?

    Or perhaps James Fullen and Catherine Parker had two sons that both used Willoughby as part of their name, with one of them dying young?

  18. 22.  Emily Elizabeth Fullen Descendancy chart to this point (4.James2, 1.James1) was born 7 Dec 1873, Vernon Parish, Louisiana; died 25 Jan 1948, Lufkin, Angelina County, Texas; was buried , Ebenezer Cemetery, Jasper County, Texas.

    Notes:

    Former Resident Dies At Lufkin

    Funeral services were held Monday at the Ebenezer cemetery for Mrs. Elizabeth Byerly Alexander, 74, of Lufkin and formerly a Jasper citizen, who died Sunday in the Angelina County hospital.

    She had lived in Lufkin three years and was a member of the Pentecostal church. Mrs. Byerly was the mother of Jack Byerly of Jasper and Mrs. Ellie Womack of Jasper.

    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.

    Notes:

    The information on his draft registration for World War I shows that his full name was Jack John Fullen, and that his date of birth was February 22, 1874. He registered on September 12, 1918, and was shown as being married to Mrs. Nettie Fullen, and as a farmer in Freestone, Navarro County, Texas. His death certificate showed his DOB as February 22, 1875, and indicated his parents were Jim Fullen and Elizabeth Parker. He was listed a Farmer. The informant was Mrs. Gladys Atteberry, presumably his daughter.

    Ameth Carmichael shows that Jack FULLEN married (1) Nettie COOPER and that he married (2) Mary WATKINS.

The Jack Fullen listed in the census extracts above was born ca 1876. This is a significant age difference.  Other sources show that the Jack Fullen below was actually Harrom Jackson Fullen, born in Comanche County (according to his family), or Tarrant County (according to his death certificate). Harrom Jackson Fullen and Mary Watkins were married ca 1874 or 1875 in Comanche or Coleman County, Texas.

  23. 27.  Minnie Fullen Descendancy chart to this point (4.James2, 1.James1) was born Between 1876 and 1882, Sabine County, Texas; died Aug 1971, Angelina County, Texas.

    Notes:

    Her birth information, as shown in the scan of BIRTHS recorded in the Fullen bible, was as follows:

    Minnie 1876

    Ameth Carmichael shows she married W.J. SHIPP on 7-10-1889 in Leon County, Texas. This record may have been for another Minnie Fullen, as she would have only been 13 years in 1889 (and possibly even younger), and there is no indication that she moved to Leon County. There is a notation, however, in the UNIONS section of the Fullen family bible, that "Minnie and William" were wed ca 1899.  William's last name is not shown.

    Ameth further cites this cemetery record as Minnie's, from the Freeman Cemetery in Angelina County, Texas:

    THOMPSON,Minnie V. 7-9-1882 8-11-1971

    There is a Minnie V. Thompson listed on the SSDI with dates similar, but not identical, to the above listing. According to the SSDI, Minnie Thompson was born on July 9, 1880 and died on August 15, 1971. The similarities in the two sets of records make it appear as if they do indeed relate to the same person. Perhaps the cemetery information was simply recorded incorrectly. The Texas Death Index shows  yet  a third date of death, that of August 9, 1971.

    A request was made by Melinda Strong to the Social Security Administration for a copy of Minnie's application for a Social Security Account Number. In response, the Social Security Administration mailed a copy of a "Request for E/R Action", which was the only information they had on file for Minnie. This application was filed with the Lufkin, Texas District office for purposes of making an HIB claim. Minnie was assigned 461-86-2495 as her account number. The form listed her date of birth as July 9, 1880. This would make her some four years younger than the date shown in the Fullen bible, but two years older than the cemetery records indicate. It is possible that her exact year of birth had been forgotten, even by Minnie herself. Additionally, on this application, her parents were shown as Jim FULMER and Elizabeth PARKER. It appears that she was born in Hemphill, Sabine County, Texas. Note that her father's last name is shown as FULMER and not FULLEN. Perhaps this was simply a transcription error.

    It appears likely that Minnie Thompson is indeed the daughter of Jim FULLEN and Elizabeth PARKER, but there is still some uncertainty. Perhaps obtaining a copy of her death certificate and/or obituary would help clarify matters. Please email us if you know more about Minnie.


  24. 28.  Willie Fullen Descendancy chart to this point (4.James2, 1.James1) was born Abt 1877; died Yes, date unknown.

    Notes:

    Birth information, as shown in the scan of BIRTHS recorded in the Fullen bible, was as follows:

    William 1877

    The UNIONS section of the bible further shows:

    William and Jennie 1900

    In her online tree, Amy Fullen had originally cited William as being married to a Jennie L. Lofton.

    However, in an update to her tree, she showed this child as Willie Drucella Fullen, with a marriage in 1909 to J. L. Lofton, and date of death as 1968 in Lufkin.

    It is therefore not clear if Willie is Male or Female. His/her obituary and/or death certificate might clear this up. Please email if you know more about Willie/William.

    Notes:

    His birth information, as shown in the scan of BIRTHS recorded in the Fullen bible, was as follows:

    James M 1881

    On February 24, 1937, he applied for a Social Security card.

    Census Information:

    In 1910, there was a Marion Fullen, age 22, who was a carpenter and living as a boarder in the home of Lewis STONE of Tennessee in Angelina County, Texas. He was listed as married, even though no wife or children appeared to be in the home with him. This was PROBABLY a different Marion Fullen based on the age (which should have been around 28).

    Notes:

    I was not able to locate the family of Ferman Fullen in Robert Cecil McDaniel's transcription of the 1920 Sabine County census. However, they were listed on the 1920 Texas Soundex as residents of Sabine County, as follows. The soundex references Vol. 142, ED 170, Sht 3, Line 18. I examined the actual microfilm and did find the family. The microfilm copy was very light and nearly illegible, however. It appears that the soundex information was probably correct.

    Per the 1920 Soundex card:

    Fullen, Firman E W 24 TX
    Fullen, Arlie V. W 24 TX
    Fullen, Walter O W son 6 TX
    Fullen, Minnie M D dau 5 TX

    According to a copy of an obituary for F. E. Fullen, not fully dated or referenced, "ORANGE, May 11--Ferman Egbert Fullen, 48, of Orange, an employee of the Consolidated Steel corporation, died at a local hospital at 7 a.m. Thursday as a result of injuries sustained when he fell several hours earlier at the shipyard. He was working as a carpenter. He was a brother of Otis Fullen, vice president of the Security State bank. He was said to have suffered a skull fracture in a fall into the hold of a ship. Mr. Fullen and family have lived in Orange for about three years. Funeral services awaited contacts with the two sons in the army, one of whom, Arlis Fullen, 19, was awarded the silver star for gallantry during the Tunisian campaign. He later was wounded in Sicily and is now in a hospital at Martinsburg, West Virginia. The other boy in the army Pvt. Marvin Fullen, is stationed at Boise, Idaho.

    He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Arrie Fullen, Orange; three daughters, Mrs. Hubert Deering, Houston; Mrs. J.D. Parker and Mrs. Madye Hennigan, both of Port Arthur; four sons, Walter Fullen, Newton; G.B. Fullen, Orange; Marvin and Arlis Fullen, both in the U.S. Army, three brothers, Otis and William B. Fullen, both of Beaumont, and J. Vertis Fullen, Newton; six sisters, Mrs. Kelly Fogg, New Orleans, Mrs. Charles Atkins, El Paso, Mrs. Basil Kee, Beaumont, Mrs. Ramsay Simmons, Mrs. J.B. Bobbitt, and Mrs. Ramsay Smith, all of Newton.

    Notes:

    It appears he had married a daughter of Richard and Lillie Davis prior to 1920, and been shortly thereafter widowed. At the time of the 1920 census, he was a boarder in their home, listed as son-in-law, and also as widowed. His younger sister, Velma, was also a boarder in that same home. There is a death certificate on file for his first wife, viewable online at FamilySearch.org, Texas Deaths, 1890-1976. She was shown as Mrs. Otis E. Fullen, born Oct. 20, 1898 died October 29, 1918 from bronchopneumonia due to the Influenza epidemic sweeping the world. Her parents were shown as R. D. Davis of Alabama and Miss Fortenberry of Mississippi.

He was a lifelong resident of Sabine County and a member of a pioneer family in this region. He was a retired building contractor. He was survived by his (second) wife, Jeannette Wright Fuller, his daughter Mrs. Lexie Smith of Akron, Ohio, his granddaughter, two brothers Joe and Hermann Fuller both of the Rosevine Community, four sisters Mrs. Nina McLemore of San Augustine, Mrs. Ethly (sic) Eddings of Rosevine, Mrs. Bertha Fuller (sic) of Conroe and Mrs. Tera Coussons (sic) of Carthage. His funeral services were held 2:30 pm Thursday, December 21 in the First Baptist Church in Hemphill. The Reverend Clarence Howell, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Boling, Texas, and the Rev. Tommy Long, pastor of the Newton Church of God, officiated. He was buried in Hemphill cemetery under the direction of Starr Funeral Home. Pallbearers were Leon Adickes, Lon Wright, Oscar Pate, Dan Prado, Joe Howard and Louis McDonald."
                 According to "A Pictorial History of Sabine County, Texas", Mrs. Alonzo Fuller was a fifth grade teacher at Hemphill in 1941. Per William Kent Anderson, she was a graduate of Stephen F. Austin University. This book instead shows Lonzo's name as Lonzo Alcony Fuller. On one census for Sabine County, he was shown as "Lawrence A" instead of Alonzo. This Federal Census also had the number "2" in the column for U-C Vet. Army/Navy.

  47. 76.  Nina Ophelia FullerNina Ophelia Fuller Descendancy chart to this point (13.Viola3, 3.John2, 1.James1) was born 15 Sep 1891, Rosevine, Sabine County, Texas; died 8 Jul 1980, Lufkin, Angelina County, Texas; was buried , Rosevine Cemetery, Sabine County, Texas.

    Notes:

    Nina Fuller was a striking. She was nearly six feet tall and slender. When she unwound her hair from the bun she usually wore, it cascaded down her back almost to her feet. She enjoyed gardening and quilting, growing most of her own vegetables. She was a thrifty woman. She continued to make her own soap from lye, pine rosin and "fat cracklings" even when she could just as easily purchased a bar at the store.

    Being the oldest daughter, Nina helped her mother daily with the household chores. She remembers that when she was quite young, her parents went to the State Fair in Dallas by horse and buggy. They came home with a washboard and a box of packaged laundry soap. Nina claims they were the first family in Sabine County to have a washboard, and remembers neighbors coming by on wash day just to see how it worked. The 1940 census indicates she had attended school for six years.

    She was a staunch member of the Rosevine Church of God. She truly believed in doing good works, and never turned away anyone in need. Her son Tom remembers that their home was on the "hobo circuit" during the depression.  He often passed men asleep on a spare mattress in their garage on his way to school. She fed everyone who came to their door hungry, and made regular visits to the local nursing home to take food to friends and relatives.

    Nina Sue Wade, who was a backdoor neighbor to the McLemore family when they lived in town, recalls that her mother relied on her more experienced neighbors parenting advice. The Wade family had several young children, mainly very active boys, with Nina being the oldest. Mrs. Wade worked hard to keep her rambuctious children in line, to no avail. Mrs. McLemore advised her to ignore the minor infractions. Nina Sue recalled her mother often quoting a saying Mrs. McLemore told her, "When your children are young, they step on your shoestrings. When they get older, they step on your heartstrings." She would go on to advise her to cherish her children while they were young and full of spirit, because she would miss them sorely when they were grown and on their own.

    Nina McLemore was an independant woman, living alone in a house her brother Lonzo built for her after her husband died. She lived next door to her son Percy, and her grandson's Dental Office was directly behind her home. She was able to live at home and care for herself until she was in her mid 80's, when she went to live with her daughter Evon.

    Notes:

    Notes:

    Although Brooks was said to have died of tuberculosis, he might actually have died in the great Spanish influenza epidemic of 1918. The disease maneuvered its way into the United States by soldiers, nurses and volunteers, viral carriers returning home from contagious flu infested combat zones. On October 31, 1918, the headlines in neighboring Jasper County, Texas read, "Flu Epidemic Raging the Globe--Over 20 Million Deaths Expected--Anti Influenza Vaccines Fail." The epidemic peaked in East Texas during the icy winter of 1918.  (Source: Dony Harrison, Jasper NewsBoy January 20, 1999). No death certificate is on file for Brooks or his brother Price, who both died as young men.

    Notes:

    Melinda McLemore remembers visiting her Grandaunt, the widowed Ethel Eddings, when she was a young girl. Even something as ordinary as taking a walk with her grandmother Nina and Aunt Ethel became an exciting adventure. Ethel carried her shotgun with her, constantly on the lookout for those "polecats (skunks) and armadillos" that wreaked havoc on her gardens.

    Ethel married Grover David Eddings 31 Oct 1915, Sabine County, Texas. Grover (son of Sterling W. Eddings and Lyda E. Hutto) was born Abt 1889, Texas; died 15 Feb 1965, Sabine County, Texas. [Group Sheet]

    Notes:

    Herman suffered from tuberculosis, and spent some time at a hospital in San Angelo when his children were still young. His wife and their eldest children, ranging in age from 14 to 10 had to bring in the crops while Herman was hospitalized. James Roland Fuller recounted that "what kept us going beyond our own best efforts was the help and encouragement of the good people of the county, especially their friends and neighbors in Rosevine, who came to help work the crops. Many of them pledged one days work each week, as needed, even while busy with their own crops. With their help and the grace of God we were able to survive."

    When Herman returned, he was not able to farm. He traded his animals and equipment to a local store owner as a down payment on the store. He also was hired by the Rosevine school district to pick up and deliver students to the school. Ruth also helped at the store. As the years passed, Herman regained enough strength to operate stores and service stations throughout east and southest Texas.
