I am trying to follow my family tree through the Fullen family. I believe they moved from Tennessee into Arkansas sometime around 1840, eventually moving on to Oklahoma around 1930.
I am currently working from James Malki Fullen, born 1880 in western AR, probably Yell County. I believe his parents to be Andrew J Fullen (b. 1852, Arkansas) and Amelia Boss (b. 1859, Texas) also of Yell County.
I have run into a dead-end trying to find Andrew J Fullen's parents. I think his mother is Rebecca A Fullen (b. 1834, Tennessee), but I don't have anything other than an 1860 US Census from Yell County which lists Rebecca A Fullen along with 4 children under 8 years old, including an Andrew. I'm unsure if Fullen is her maiden or married name.
Has anyone run into the Fullen family during research? My only next idea is to try to acquire a birth certificate for Andrew J Fullen, assuming one may exist for around 1852 in the Yell County area and that Andrew Fullen was actually born in Yell.
Any help or tips are greatly appreciated.
