My response to a very old message on Rootsweb:
I have little additional information to contribute along with some corrections.
Robert Riley Fuller had a son, Joseph Nelson Fuller b. abt. 1856 in Indiana. Joseph Nelson Fuller married 1st - Josephine Ellis and had at least three children - Thomas L b. Indiana 1881 - , Lula Mae b. Kansas 1883 - d. Virginia 1951, and James Austin b. Kansas 1886 - . Josephine Ellis Fuller died sometime before 1893 and Joseph Nelson Fuller delivered his children to the care of an orphanage.
In 1893 Joseph Nelson Fuller married Ann Eliza (or possibly Elisa, Elizabeth) Bradburn. Their children were Carl Franklin Fuller 1894 – , Earl Fuller 1895 – , Grace Alice Fuller 1896 – , Russell Riley Fuller 1899 – 1977, Ruby Opal Fuller 1902 – , and twins Florence Martha Fuller 1904 –, Laurence George Fuller 1904 – .
Joseph Nelson and Ann Eliza appear on the 1900 census in Boone County, Indiana along with several of their children as well as two of Joseph's older sons from his first marriage to Josephine Ellis.
I have not been able to find any information about Robert Riley Fuller b. Kentucky abt. 1826 who married Rebecca (Haaze, Haize, Hays, Hayse, Hare, Hors) b. Indiana, other than one person who mentioned Robert may have been a wagon maker.
Lula Mae Fuller Montgomery [daughter of Joseph Nelson Fuller and Josephine Ellis] was my paternal grandmother. She also had twins, Leo and Lillian Montgomery.
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
