I have new info on this:

I have gotten soo much new info I thought anyone also reseaching this line might like to know.

Edward P. FULLER
Birth:       1841, East, Plymouth
Death:       4 Mar 1884, East, Plymouth
Father:       Peter FULLER (1795-1878)
Mother:       Clara GIBBONS

Your Arthur Fuller shows up in the 1880 census of Ashtabula County in the household of Edward and Harriet Fuller. Family History Library Film #1254992, National Archive Film #T9-0992, page 569C.

Arthur was 17 in the summer of 1880, indicated a birth date of late 1862 to mid-1863. Edward was 39, born in OH, indicating a birth year of 1839. This is a direct match with Edward Fuller, son of Peter Fuller. Edward is found in the 1850 census on page 264, dwelling #29, family #31, age 9, a son of Peter Fuller and his wife, who was a Giddings. So your Arthur Fuller was a grandson of Peter Fuller, who was a documented Mayflower pilgrim descendant.

Give me a little time, and I'll provide further details on Peter's ancestry.

1870 Census



Last Will and Testament of Edward P. Fuller.
In the very hard to read will , he leaves his home of eighty six acres to his son Arthur E. Fuller to be held by his wife until his twenty-first birthday if there is no debt that is, if there is debt his wife is instructed to sell the farm and give the leftover money to Arthur on his twenty-first birthday. The will was written on August 23, 1877. His wife is mentioned as being Harriet M. Fuller. It is obvious from this that Arthur is their only living child.

Census: June 23, 1880 Plymouth Township

Edrward Fuller 39 farmer place of birth: ohio. Fathers place of birth: NY Place of birth of Mother: Conneticut.
Harriet Fuller 39 wife keeping house Place of birth: Ohio, Fathers PLace of birth: Connticut Mothers place of birth: NY.
Arthur Fuller 17 son Place of birth: Ohio Fathers place of birth:Ohio MOthers place of birth: Ohio..

Hmm intersting..It supports the feeling I have that Edward is Peter Fuller and Clara Gibbons son. Not only that Edwards middle initial is given as P. I will bet money it is for Peter.

Your Arthur Fuller, born about 1863, was the son of Edward Fuller. I don't have the name of Edward's wife.

Edward Fuller, born about 1839, was the son of Peter Fuller and Clara Gibbons. Peter and Clara were married in Ashtabula County in 1818, and are buried in the old cemetery in Plymouth Township (I can't remember the name of it, but I've been there and taken photos). Peter's grave does not have a headstone, but is known to be in that cemetery.

Peter Fuller (1795 - 1878) was the son of Cornelius Fuller (1770 - 1839) and Zilpha Knapp. They lived in Windham Twp., Green County, New York, and were also the parents of Elijah Knapp Fuller, b. 1811, one of the founders of the Mormon Church. Elijah had 6 wives and has a zillion descendants (as you might expect).

Cornelius Fuller was the son of John Fuller (1746 - 1836) and Dorcas Fuller (1751 - 1836). John was born in Hebron, Tolland Co., Connecticut.

John Fuller was the son of Cornelius Fuller (1710 - abt. 1760) and Patience Chappell. Cornelius was born in Barnstable, Massachusetts.

Cornelius Fuller was the son of Matthew Fuller (abt. 1664 - bef. 1744) and Patience Young (1672 - 1746).

Matthew Fuller was the son of Samuel Fuller (1624 - 1683) and Anne Fuller (abt 1640 - 1691).

Samuel Fuller was the son of Samuel Fuller (1609 - 1683), a passenger on the Mayflower, and Jane Lathrop. This Samuel Fuller was born in Leiden, Netherlands, son of Edward Fuller, one of the Pilgrims.

Best Wishes,

Don Boyd

Got a document sent to me from Ashtabula COunty District library that shows the date of E A Fuller and his wife Julia Billett.
