Fultz Family Genealogy Forum
Trying to determine if connection exists between the Fultz family and my Myers family. My gg-grandfather, Ephraim Fultz Myers, was born 16 Jan 1822 in TN and died 3 May 1895 in Hunt Co, TX. He was the son of Moses Myers and Eve/Eva ?. Eve and 6 of 8 kids are in the 1850 Warren Co, TN census - Ephraim Fultz; Delpha, 1827; Abigail, 1831; Preston Miles, 1836; John 1838, and Burrel Nels, ?. Court records indicate there may have been a child named Pleasant M. Moses is not shown in the 1850 census and his name was obtained from court records. The family is listed as Moyers in the 1850 census.
Ephraim is in Greene Co, TN for the 1860 census with a daughter, Sally A. Myers, born 1858-1859 - no wife. There is a marriage record in Warren Co for him and Mary Hawkins on 23 Aug 1855. Ephraim next appears in the 1870 and 1880 Hunt Co, TX censuses where he married Elizabeth Athelia Abernathy in neighboring Fannin Co, TX on 20 May 1862. He and Elizabeth have 9 children.
Is there a connection to the Fultz family since Ephraim's middle name if Fultz? Could it be his mother's maiden name? Does any one have an Eve Fultz who was born in Virginia?
