2 John W Fulwoods

In reply to your post about two John W Fulwoods,(Re; Fullwood/Fulwood Cemetary March 23 2002) I agree and also after more searching I am now convinced that you are right about the John W not being the father of John W, William, Daniel, and Purcel. I am not yet convinced of the connection to Rev John Fullwood nor can I find any information tying in a John Wesley Fulwood, a Jonathan Fulwood,and a Charles Fulwood. Here's what I found:


Rev.CA Fulwood b. 1829 GA, m, to Harriet Godfrey, d 11 April 1850.3 children, Charles W, d. July 23,1875 FL, Eliza b. abt. 1855, Ralph b. abt 1857.
Other than your document of guardianship. Could you email me a copy of that? I would really appreciate it.

John Wesley Fullwood (the only Fulwood/Fullwood I could find)
b. 6 July 1879 Brunswick Co., NC d. Jan 23 1919
son of Samuel Porter Fullwood and Mary Amelia Spencer
Parents of Samuel Porter Fullwood, are Charles V Fullwood and Martha Elizabeth

I could find no vital records for Johnathan or Maryanne Fulwood.

You quote from the Will that Charles was appointed Guardian of Mary Ann Fulwood, John W, Daniel A. and William Fulwood, minor children of Johnathan Fulwood. In the next paragraph you said the guardianship papers states Johnathans children including a John Wesley Fulwood. Did it spell out his name?

I am also confused as to your statement
"Note that in 1850 Houston County census that along with his wife Nancy, and daughter Emily and Arminta; a Daniel A Fulwood, farmer, 16 and William Fulwood farmer, 18 are found living with both the Elizabeth mentioned above and the John W. Fulwood b 18, Farmer."
If I understand correctly you say that Rev John b 1787 m to Elizabeth Majors had Johnathan who m Maryanne and had Mary Ann, John W.(John Wesley?) Daniel A, and William. So the John W married to Nancy Turner Dec 21 1843 in Houston Co (Ga Marriage Records to 1850)and the one mentioned in the census is the same but not the one you are refering to as our ancestor?

Another reason I agree that there were two John W and that one or both were probably related to Daniel and William are that 1. they all four enlisted the same day according to military records bu their listed resident counties varied.
1.John W Fulwood Enlisted March 22 1862, rank: Corpl, Age 36, res: Thomas Co GA
2. John W Fulwood Enlisted March 22 1862, rank: Priv, Age 22
(this = b. 1840), res: Clay Co GA
3. William A Fulwood, Enlisted March 22 1862, rank Priv, Age 29, res: Brooks Co GA
4. Daniel A. Fulwood, Enlisted March 22 1862, rank: Priv, Age 28, res: Brooks Co GA
This gives support to William and Daniel being brothers, and their ages at the time of enlistment is right.

I cannot find any references to Elizabth Majors Fulwood/Fullwood.

Mary Ann, John W., William, and Daniel were listed in the guardianship papers, but you also said in a different paragraph that Johnathan and his wife Mary Ann were both dead by 1843 and left 5 minor children "William, Daniel A, John Wesley/John W. ?, Lucretia Emiline, and Mary Ann E. Where did Lucretia Emiline come from? I couldn't find anything abiut her either.

Now I am so confused I don't know who I'm descended from!
I thougt it was from John W. b 1825 d, April 1862 Macon Ga
m. to Nancy Turner who had 5 children
1. Emily A Fulwood b 1845 Houston C d 1871
m Bryan Kem 17 July 1859 Brooks Co
2. Arminda Fulwood b 1847 Houston Co
3. James Franklin Fulwood b 1pr 1849 d 1910
4. George Smith Fulwood b Aug 3 1855 Pavo,Houston Co
d Dec 8 1923
(My ggf) 1. David Arthur Fulwood b 1881 Pavo, Houston
d Nov 23 1950 FL
1. George Wilson Fulwood bFeb 11, 1913
(My gf) Macon Ga d Apr 23 1974 FL

5. John P Fulwood b Apr 1859 Brooks Co Ga

Does anyone have any information to add to this or any information on any of the other names of my family down from John W. Please let me know!
Thanks, Carrie
