States: New York: Oneida
The Rome, Oneida County, NY 1840 census contains a listing for: "Abigail Fuller/86/Orrin Fuller/Rome/Oneida." The joining of these two names strongly suggests that they were (1) Abigail Fuller (1767-1865), the widow of Dr. Daniel Fuller (1766-1817) of Kortright/Davenport, NY, and (2) her nephew Orrin Fuller, born about 1785, who was a son of Dr. Daniel Fuller's brother (and my ancestor) Jesse Fuller and a cousin of Jesse's son Ira Fuller. It may also indicate that Abigail, who would then have been aged 73, was living at that time with her nephew Orrin and his family. Can some kind soul do a lookup, or suggest further sources of local information about Abigail and Orrin, or both, for a family history I am writing about the descendants of Jesse and Ira Fuller?
