Surnames: Fullerton, Connolly, McKenna, Tracy
I am looking for information on Robert Fullerton, born in 1798 in Belfast, Antrim Ireland. He married a woman named Catherine although there is a lot of speculation on her maiden name, I have found nothing definite.

They had four children, Sarah, Robert, Alexander and John. I am decended from their son John, who married Eliza Jane Simpson. John and Eliza had 11 children. Their son John Simpson Fullerton was my 2nd Great Grandfather. John's son George H, adopted my grandfather, although family rumors claim him as the natural father as well.

I stall at Robert born in 1798, if anyone has any information I would loe to hear it!

I am unclear on John's first name. It looks like he married Eliza Jane Simpson, but it doesn't appear she came to the Canada or the USA. Eliza Jane was arrested in Poss county, Tyrone, North Ireland on vagrancy. Now I find that "John" Married Catherine Jane Crawford who was born in 1760. I don't have a marriage date; they had five children and James William drowned while boarding a ship in Hopewell, New Brunswick, Canada. John was a Baptist and the children show to be Methodist and he was a farmer, but a man's trade varies on the census list. I am unclear if This John Fullerton has a middle name, different first name, etc. I also have another wife for John; Rachel Neomi Nickerson, married March 1887. I hope I have helped you without too much confusion???? Aloha, Joyce

I have John and Eliza Jane both buried in the Germantown Cemetery in Albert, Canada. Eliza Jane died first and was buried, and John remarried. I am not sure your Eliza Jane, with a criminal record in England is the same as the Eliza Jane that married John Fullerton. Eliza Jane Simpson was the daughter of James and Ephanias Simpson.

John came over with his mother Catherine, and Siblings. His father Robert (Born in 1768) had already passed on. I had originally thought it was Robert born in 1798, as both Catherine and Robert would have been quite old by the time he was born in 1814. I am not sure I have the information about Robert correct, so I am searching for information on him.

I have no backup for Roberts DOB, it is from other Family Trees. I am hoping to find backup. In Fullerton's of North America it lists him as "Unknown Fullerton" born 1759
