Obituary John W. Fuller
The roll of Ottumwa Civil war veterans was cut by one Wednesday night when John W. Fuller, 92, died at his home, 607 Queen Ann Ave. Only three of the boys in blue survive.

With Mr. Fullers death at 8 p.m., the membership of Tuttle post of the G.A.R. became history. He was the last survivor.

Mr. Fuller served with the 36th Iowa Infantry, Company H. more than three years in the war between the states. He enlisted July 25, 1862, at Ottumwa. He was discharged August 24, 1865, at Valley Bluff, Ark. He had been a member of both north side and south side G.A.R. Posts.

Mr. Fuller was born in Ohio, January 19, 1846, the son of John and Katherine Powell Fuller. At various times he had lived in Ottumwa for about 15 years. His last residence here had reached five years.

He was married to Miss Martha J. Burns in Ottumwa, September 2, 1868. She and five infant children preceded him in death.

Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Ella Geesaman of Port Byron, Ill, and Mrs. Anna Johnson and Mrs. Nettie Bixby of Ottumwa; three sons, W. A. and J.C. Fuller of St. Louis and J. W. Fuller of Bremerton, Wash; two half sisters, Mrs. Ina
Jacobs of Ottumwa and Mrs. Eliza McIntosh of Oskaloosa; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
