Abial Fuller, s. of John Fuller, Sr. and Abigail Titus, b. Dec. 30, 1676 at Rehoboth, Mass., four months after his father died at Rehoboth during the King Philips War. Three years later his widowed mother m. as his 2nd wife, Thomas Cushman, Jr. of Plymouth, Mass. Abial and his older brother John were raised in the Cushman household along with their older Cushman step-siblings and four younger Cushman half-siblings.
On Feb. 19, 1702/3 at an unknown place, Abial m. Annis (q.v. Annice) Parker, the apparent youngest child of John and Sarah Parker of Roxbury, Mass., where she was bapt. Oct. 8, 1682 (this identification of Annis' origins is tentantive). They had six children recorded at Plympton, Mass, but only one married and left descendants:
• i. John Fuller, b. Feb. 25, 1703/4, d. May 18, 1715 at Plympton, Æ 12.
• ii. Benjamin Fuller, b. Mar. 13, 1705/6, d. July 26, 1724 at Plympton, Æ 19.
• iii. Abigail Fuller, b. Apr. 5, 1709, d. unmarried Oct. 23, 1756 at Plympton, Æ 48.
• iv. Abial Fuller, Jr., b. Mar. 17, 1711/12; m. and left descendants.
• v. Seth Fuller, b. June 12, 1715, d. unmarried Nov. 22, 1760 at Plympton, Æ 46.
• vi. Annis Fuller, b. May 28, 1718, d. unmarried Feb. 24, 1736/7 at Plympton, Æ 19.
Abial Fuller d. Apr. 20, 1720 at Plympton, Mass., Æ 44. Although five of his children have gravestones at Plympton's Hillcrest Cemetery, there is no published reference that Abial is also interred there [update, see inscription note].
Following Abial's death, the widow Annis (Parker) Fuller m. after April 1723 (death of the third wife) as his last wife, Daniel Pratt, s. of Benajah Pratt and Persis Dunham. He was b. circa 1680-81 and d. May 7, 1739 at Plympton (g.s.), Æ 59. Annis (Parker)(Fuller) Pratt d. Feb. 21, 1760 at Plympton (g.s.), Æ 77.

A note from Dave Jenkins:
I found the following at the Plympton Historical Commission website:
Benjamin Fuller, son of Abial & Annis, his wife, May 26, 1724, in his 16th year.
Abial Fuller died April 20, 1720, in his 42nd year.
This was from a 1979-80 grave marker study by Charles H. Bricknell of Plympton's Old "Burying Place" a/k/a Hillcrest. It appears Abial is buried there - I'm presuming a separate marker.
