4.) WVA Death certificate 807, Mercer Co., WV for Aurilla Fulcher states that she was born in Patrick Springs and she was the widow of James W. Fulcher. It further states that her parents were John Fain and Polly McPeak both born at Stewart (Stuart), Va.
Thank you for your response, and I should have posted an update a while ago. Mike Conmy who is married to a Fulcher contacted me with most of this information and the a pretty complete family tree from there but, your post answered several questions too. This past February I had the chance to visit the Hill Graveyard in Mercer Co. where James W. Fulcher, Arilla H. A. (Fain) Fulcher and John Emmit Fulcher, Martha A. (Sutphin) Fulcher are buried along with many more Fulchers, Sutphins, Hills, and such. Additonally found were Harold Fulcher 86 years old in Maryland, William Fulcher in Mercer Co. and Ruby (Fulcher) Kissinger all living children of Benford Sr. Fulcher son of James W. Fulcher.

James W. Fulcher lived with Benford Sr. for quite a few years until he passed while Arilla (Arvilla, Aurilla, Hester Ann,) stayed in cabin nearby. They found it easier to get along if they didn't live together. James had worked as a miner and was a farmer I believe and Harold remembers him making baskets from white oak and hickory for a living when he stayed with them.

The middle name of Waller is in question because his surviving grandchildren call him Walter and do not recognize Waller as his name, There was a James Waller just down the street in Patrick Springs when James W. was born and the presence of a William Waller Fulcher in Hanover Co. records makes me wonder too but, Harold , Bill and Ruby all called him Grandpa Walter.
