This page is the ancestral research on the FULLER family. Much of this information comes from Charles E. Dame of CT., a cousin of mine. My ancestor that connects me to the FULLER family is Ezra 5, who married Hannah STRONG (daughter of Hannah (FULLER) STRONG). Hannah FULLER was a descendent of Edward 1 and his son Samuel 2 FULLER, both passengers on the Mayflower. Like the BIGELOW family tree, I will denote Edward FULLER as the immigrant ancestor and as Edward 1 FULLER, and his father as Robert -1 FULLER. Charles Dame is a descendent of Ezra's brother Amasa 5, who married a sister of Hannah STRONG named Jemima.

Further information was gathered from Charlton Simons Webpage, also a distant cousin. A great help also was the following Mayflower Page.
In 1998 Michael H.Fuller has posted a new page on the Fuller Family.

Subject: Hannah Fuller-descendant of Edward Fuller of Mayflower

My name is Ella Fuller Barnett. While looking on the internet for info on the Fullers I ran across your page. I'm wondering if your Hannah Fuller could be the daughter of Barnabas Fuller and Elizabeth Young.

Edw. Fuller - Anne or Anna (Unknown last name)
......Samuel Fuller - Jane Lathrop
.........Samuel Fuller - Anne Fuller (daughter of Matthew Fuller)
............Barnabas Fuller - Elizabeth Young
......................Samuel Fuller B: Nov 1681- 1) Ruth Crocker 2) Lydia Conant Lovell
......................Isaac Fuller B: Aug. 1684
......................Hannah Fuller B: Sept 1688
......................Josiah Fuller B: February 1699/00

This is the lineage back to Edw. if this is the correct Hannah Fuller, if you are interested. I also have a few generations back into England before the Mayflower. If you have any other Fuller information regarding who Isaac and Josiah married I would be interested to know.

     A tidbit of clarification: On your Fuller page 1, you say Samuel 3 Fuller...m.1657, to Anne FULLER (perhaps a cousin)..."
She was indeed his first cousin, as proven by her father Dr. Matthew 2 Fuller's (brother of Samuel 2) will which bequeaths L10 to his daughter Anne "now wife of Samuel Fuller".  My source is Amos Otis, Geneal. Notes of Barnstable, I:380, which is generally reliable, but I could check original if anyone has doubts.  They lived about five miles from me.  I'll check other
local refs, esp. Patience Young.

Dear Mr Bigelow:
Thank you very much for posting Hopestill Bigelow's letter to his son on your web site.
My ancestor, Samuel Thomas, was probably quite familiar with your ancestors, Samuel Bigelow (born 4/2/1763 Tyringham, MA) and his wife Elizabeth Fuller, as well as her parents Aaron and Rebecca Fuller.  According to a rather detailed revolutionary war pension file for Samuel Thomas, he was married to Phebe Halladay by Aaron Fuller on 6/9/1787 in Skenesborough (now Whitehall), NY.  His brothers John and James Thomas were witnesses to his wedding.  Their father died between 1771 and 1780, and their mother was "killed by Indians after the defeat of Burgoyne".  According to a deposition by James Thomas (the youngest of the three), Aaron Fuller became his guardian after his mother died.  There is also a deposition in the file by a Hannah Day (dated 1845) stating that Aaron Fuller was married to her father's sister.  I suspect that she may have been related to the three Thomas brothers, but the file does not specifically state that.
I am trying to identify the parents of my Samuel Thomas.  I know that he was born on 7/25/1762, and that several members of his family came to Skenesborough from Tyringham, MA.  Samuel Thomas joined the revolutionary army at Great Barrington.
Have you been able to determine the full name of Aaron Fuller's wife?  Since he became the guardian for James Thomas, I suspect that his wife may have been related to the Thomas brothers.  I suppose that she may have been their aunt, or sister.
Any information that you could share with me regarding Aaron Fuller, and his family would be very helpful.  I would also dearly love to find more information about Skenesborough.  Can you help me?
With the information that I have, perhaps we can determine the identity of Aaron Fuller's wife.
Please let me know if you are willing to share information.
