Abraham Fulton was my GGGGF, was born in North Ireland, near Articlave. He attended 2nd Dumbo Prespyterian Church. He came to America in 1772 from Articlave, Ireland. (My Mother says HIS father came from Ayershire, Scotland to Ireland, possibly to flee a famine there.) (The Ayreshire Scottish crest is exactly the same as the Articlave Ireland crest, and Mother says they were all Scots, not Irish, though Abraham was born near Articlave, Ireland.)
Abraham Fulton was married to Margaret Guthrie, also born in Ireland, but Mother gave me neither's birth or death date.
However when Abraham and Margaret Guthrie Fulton came to this country they settled in Little Sewickly Creek, in Westmoreland County, PA. Both died there and are buried in Mount Pleasant, PA Presbyterian Church's cemetery.
Their son was my GGGF Robert Fulton, who also resided (born?)in Westmoreland Co. He was born in Aug.?, 1797, and died on Aug. 31, 1875 in Pittsburgh, PA. He married Elizabeth Crow, who was born in (?)1807, in Licking County, PA, where both Robert and Elizabeth resided. Elizabeth died young at the age of 41, on Jul. 7, 1848. Robert Fulton served in the PA Militia as a private in the Revolutionary War.
Their children were: 1.) Rev. Henry Fulton, who married Julia Hunter, and had 2 children; 2.)Nancy Fulton (see next paragraph); 3.)Shephard (sp?) Fulton, no children; 4.)Rebecca Fulton, who married John Ross, and had 5 sons; 5.)William Fulton, 1 son, Walter.
GGGF Robert and GGGM Margaret Guthrie Fulton's daughter, Nancy Fulton, was my GGM, born on Jan. 21, 1836, and died on Oct. 13, 1921 in Groveport, OH at Ed Wildermuth's home there. She was married to my GGF George Lintner Hendren, who was born on Jan. 3, 1837, and died April 29, 1912.
Their daughter was my GM Harriet Leora Hendren, born Nov. 26, 1864, and died on Nov. 8, 1933, in our home in NJ while visiting us. She was married to William M. Bonebrake on Sept. 15, 1887. He was born on May, 31, 1865 and died in March ?, 1918. They lived in Columbus, OH where their daughter (my mother) was born.
My mother, Ruth Hendren Bonebrake Hamilton, was born July 27, 1891 in Columbus, OH, and died near my sister's family in Keene, NH, on July 23, 1978. My father was Floyd Eugene Hamilton, born in Batavia, NY on April 3, 1890, and was killed in an auto accident in Somerset, PA on Sept. 2, 1969. They were married on June 2, 1919. Both of my parents were Presbyterian missionaries to Pyeng Yang, Korea, where I and my 4 siblings were born and lived until our evacuation to America, just before WWII.
I hope this sketchy information, which is all Mother could tell me, will be of some help to any of you who are related to any of these individuals. If you are, I would appreciate hearing of any further info concerning them that you can give me, and how you are related to them. Thanks ahead of time.
