This is the information that I found at the Clarendon County archives on the Fullwood Family:

William Fullwood also as Fulwood

William Fullwood was Captain of a Company of Volunteer Militia by 9-30-1775. William Fullwood's son Federal pensioner William Fullwood Jr, stated in a letter dated 12-10-1844 that his father was promoted to Major and was stationed in Charlestown when the British attacked Fort "Moultrie" [Fort Sullivan 1776] and he resigned, due to age, between that time and the British returning again [1780].

A family record of births, probably torn from a Bible, also in his son William's pension papers states that William Fullwood Senr. was born 2-12-1735; his wife Sarah was born 1740, no month or day given. He may have been alive on 1-15-1794 when as Major William Fullwood, his land was bound by other land. He was deceased by 1-1-1795. His widow Sarah Fullwood of Salem died testate beween 11-2-1814 and 2-16-1816, naming among her children, two daughters who were not in the Family Record.


1) William Fullwood Junr. He was named in Sarahs will.

2) Robert Fullwood was born 1-3-1766. He was in Clarke Co., Ga by 3-16-1812. He died testate there by 5-8-1822, naming wife Jane and children. He is said dto have married Jane Ware Hunter. DAR has accepted Robert Fullwood as a soldier but no record of his service has been found. He was named in Sarah's will.

3) Thomas Fullwood was born 9-6-1769. He was last found on 6-2-1793. Thomas was not named in Sarah's will and was apparently deceased..

He married beforde 11-25-1826 to Anna Cubbage, daughter of Philemon Cubbage. Anna, born ca. 1770 and blind, was enumerated on the 1850 Sumter Census. He was named in Sarah's will.

6) Miles Fullwood born...the Xerox copy of this entry could not be completely read, apparently having holes in the original. However, the first name was not Elizabeth or Mary. This child was not named in Sarah's will and was apparently deceased.

7) John Futhy Fullwood was born 12-2-1778. He died intestate in Sumter District in the spring of 1808. His children were named in Sarah's will. John's widow Sarah, the sister of one James Dickey, remarried to Harper Johnson, born ca. 1783, was enumerated on the 1860 Clarendon Census.

Daughters named in Sarah's will who were not in the family record:

8) Elizabeth Fullwood. She was called Elizabeth McElveen in Sarah's will. She was married to John McElveen who died testate between 6-9-1813 and 1-11-1816. Elizabeth McElveen, born ca. 1760, was enumerated on teh 1850 Sumter Census. She received a Federal pension for the service of John McIlvain, wohm she married in 1777; he died 11-21-1815; he served under Capt. John Nelson, Col. Richardson and General Marion in 1781 & 1782.
