Your 31 Dec 1999 message concerns an Asa Fuller B 1758 in Hebron, Tolland Co., CT who M an Abigail ? in Colchester, CT and moved to and died in Rome, NY and had a son Orrin J. Fuller. In my pending family history of our Edward Fuller line from Plymouth Bay thru Colchester, Wetherfield and Farmington, CT to Ohio and Minnesota I have an Asa7 Fuller, son of John6 Fuller (Par. 191 in the Edward Fuller Silver Book, 1728-1814) who was B in Colchester in 1758 and is supposed to have moved to and died in Rome, NY. Also, in our line there is an Orrin8 Fuller, a successful CT Yankee peddler B in Burlington, CT (don't know where he died, but his wife is buried in Burlington) who was a son of Jesse7 Fuller. Since Jesse was a son of John6, my Asa would have been Jesse's brother and my Orrin would have been Asa's nephew. Are these facts coincidences, or is my Asa being mistaken for yours, or can you make a connection?

I have an Asa Fuller in my family. dob: Oct. 28, 1733, married to Mary Goodwin & had a daughter Irena who married Constant Williams. His father was: John Fuller who was married to Penelope (Toola ?) John was the son of Samuel Fuller dob: 1682, dod: 1757. His parents were John Fuller Sr. dob: 1657, dod: 1725/26 and Mehitable Rawley: dob: 1659/60. John Sr. parents were: Samuel Fuller and Jane Lothrop/Lathrop. Samuels parents were Edward Fuller and (Anne?) Edward's father was Robert Fuller. I am looking for information on Mary Goodwin, Asa's wife. Can't seem to find anything. Can you help me? Thanks

I have no information about Mary Goodwin, wife of Asa Fuller (son of John5 Fuller and younger brother of my ancestor John6 Fuller -- except that Asa and Mary were married in Middletown, CT on 17 October 1762, information that presumably I got from Par. 191 of the Mayflower Society's Edward Fuller Silver Book. Would be glad to learn what you know about their daughter Irene and her husband William Constant

You mention John5's wife Penelope Toola or Tooley. She was his second wife, of course; he married her in 1743 in Nine Partners, NY while he was divorcing his first wife, Sarah Clothier, in CT because she had run off with William Goodrich from Sharon, CT to Albany. John5 Fuller died in Newington, CT about 1767 "at the home of Capt. Churchil," a leading citizen of the town. My ancestor John6 Fuller (1728-1813) was the first child of John5 and Sarah.

Thanks Bob for sending me info on Fullers. All these Fullers are giving me a real headache. I'm still trying to sort them out. I just finished my line of William's for DAR and that is where Constant Williams comes in. He married Asa's daughter, Irena, dob: I'm not certain. They were married in 1785 per records in the Townhouse at Williamstown, MA. Irena was still living in 1813 per original church records of Smithfield, PA..(now in the library at Athens, PA.Constant Williams was born in 1763, died 1835/36. You can find info on him in "Sons of the American Revolution" It also shows he was married at one time to Alsa Barnett but there is no proof of marriage, just that a license was issued. Constant's father was Nehemiah, (1736-92) son of Robert and Martha from Plainfield and Voluntown, CT. He was one of the "Green Mountain Boys" fighting with Ethan Allen at the Battle of Bennington in Vermont. His mother was Elizabeth Gallop, and that's another whole new line (1465)going back to Sweden. Asa also had a sister named Irena. I have to be careful not to confuse the two. Thanks again.

Jim, regarding the assertion that Asa "moved to Rome, NY prior to 1795"... your Asa was in Pittsfield, Berkshire Co., MA at least until 1800. He's found in Pittsfield in both the 1790 and 1800 censuses:

1790 1 male 16+ (Asa)
2 males 0-16 (Oliver 12, Asa 4)
5 females (Abigail, Abigail 10, Margaret 8, Filena 6, Susanna 2)

1800 3 males 0-10 (Dennis 4, Chauncy 6, Ruby 0)
1 male 10-16 (Asa 14)
1 male 26-45 (Asa 42)
2 females 0-10 (Ashley 2, Eunice 9)
1 female 10-16 (Susanna 12)
3 females 16-26 (Filena 16, Margaret 18, Abigail 20)
1 female 26-45 (Abigail)
Also on the next page is son Oliver:
1 male 16-26 (Oliver 22)
1 female 0-10
1 female 16-26

Oliver is found in adjacent Lenox, Berkshire Co, MA in 1810 (by which time Asa and son Asa appear in Rome), but in Rome, NY in 1820.
