Do I have this information correct,Chris Alexander

Descendants of Samuel Fullen

Generation No. 1

1. SAMUEL1 FULLEN was born January 22, 1799 in Virginia, and died April 07, 1876 in three miles north of Crawfordsville,Montgomery County,Indiana. He married ANNIE POGUE, daughter of GEORGE POGUE and CASSA PAINE. She was born July 15, 1797 in South Carolina, and died August 19, 1877 in Montgomery County,Indiana.


1881 HW Beckwith History, Montgomery Co IN (Chicago: HH Hill) p 464

SAMUEL FULLEN, deceased, was of English and Irish stock, and was born in Virginia, January 22, 1799. In his infancy his parents emigrated to Knoxville, Tennessee, where they remained until he was eight years old; then removing, settled at Connersville, Fayette county, Indiana, and subsequently fixed their home in Marion county, thus making their residence in the northwest territory some eight years prior to the admission of Indiana as a state into the Union. Capt. Fullen was married October 2, 1817, to Miss Annie Pogue, daughter of George Pogue, a famous western adventurer, and one of the earliest settlers of Indianapolis. She was born in South Carolina July 15, 1797. It is believed that her father was killed by the Indians. His horses were stolen by them, and he went in pursuit, but nothing was ever afterward heard of him. The neighbors followed hard upon the depredators and retook the animals. The wife of Pogue was Miss Cassa A. Paine, who was born, according to the most reliable account, September 7, 1769. Her death occurred in this county October 9, 1861, at the extreme age of ninety-two years, one month and two days. Her remains were deposited in Oak Hill cemetery. Capt. Fullen was a militia officer in the days when musters and trainings were all in fashion. In Marion county he held the office of justice of the peace many years. He was a strong believer in universal salvation, and after his settlement in this county, in 1840, took the pulpit, and labored with more or less regularity until 1845 to disseminate this favorite doctrine. In politics he could justly boast with pride that he was a Jackson democrat; and, like most of the venerable men of that school of belief, he was active and influential in his party. He often took the stump, and in 1856 labored in this way in that memorable canvass with more than his ordinary zeal. He made his living by farming. He began poor, but acquired a fair competence, and at his death, which occurred April 7, 1876, left a good farm of 160 acres, three miles north of Crawfordsville. He enjoyed the respect of a numerous acquaintance, and was widely known for his integrity, intelligence, and general worth as a citizen. His wife, a kindly and estimable woman, in whom were the graces of cheerfulness, frugality and tender benevolence, survived him but a short time. She went peacefully to rest on the l9th of August, 1877, and was laid with the other members of the family, who are buried in Oak Hill cemetery. The children by these parents were fifteen in number, as follows: Amanda, wife of the Rev. Daniel Vines, of Fayette county, Iowa; Emaline, now Mrs. Seth Curtis, of Douglas county, Minnesota; Melinda, relict of Harvey Montgomery; Lucinda, wife of John Alexander, of Tama county, Iowa; Matilda, born February 20, 1820, and died July 17, 1845, married Thomas Hanks, who also died many years ago; Cassa A., born November 2, 1825, and died December 16, 1871, married Peter Sandoe, who died in the army; Samuel J., born March 26, 1827, and died April 9,6, 1843; Charles M.; Louisiana, now Mrs. Joseph Alexander, of Worth county, Missouri; Andrew Jackson; Martin Van Buren, born January 16, 1833, and died January 30, 1868; Stincy, wife of John J. Darter; Elizabeth, died in infancy; Thomas H. B., and John W., June 5, 1868. John W. Fullen was appointed by the commissioners school examiner of Montgomery county, and filled the office with much ability for three years. In the autumn of the same year he was also appointed superintendent of the public schools of the city of Crawfordsville, the first who ever held that office, and performed its duties with unqualified satisfaction four years. He retired during the school years 1872 and 1873, but in the summer of the last named year was recalled by the trustees, and occupied this responsible position two years longer. He organized and graded the schools for the city, and instituted the admirable system by which they are now governed, and the youth receiving efficient instruction. We properly close this family sketch with the following obituary, written by the brother of the deceased, Prof. J. W. Fullen, and which appeared in the Crawfordsville “Review” the week succeeding the announcement of his death: “We are pained to announce the death of Martin V. Fullen, son of Samuel and Annie Fullen, of this county, who died suddenly of cholera on the 30th day of January, 1868, at Buenos Ayres, South America. He left home in the spring of 1854, at the age of twenty- one, and died in his thirty-sixth year, after an absence of fourteen years without a returning visit to friends and home. For some five or six years previous to his death, Mr. Fullen had been in the employ of the United States minister to Paraguay. The United States consul at Buenos Ayres, Hon. M. E. Hollister, states that he, accompanied by his son and the American clergyman, Rev. Dr. Goodfellow, took charge of the burial of the deceased in the Protestant cemetery, and also that he took possession of his effects. All who ever knew Martin will lament his sudden death. An unpretending, yet ingenious youth, reared in the quiet country, his only ambition from early boyhood was to travel. He seemed to catch the inspiration from the very breezes, and to envy the wild swan her annual flights to the sunny regions of the south. It is consoling to his friends to know that, though exposed to the wiles of every clime, he died a sober, prosperous, and upright man."

Notes for ANNIE POGUE:
It is believed that her father was killed by the Indians. His horses were stolen by them, and he went in pursuit, but nothing was ever afterward heard of him. The neighbors followed hard upon the depredators and retook the animals.
