In 1826 they came to Scioto County and settled in Madison Township, where they both died.
Mr. Fullerton was reared a farmer, following that occupation till 1834, when he was ordained a minister in the Free-Will Baptist church, and for nearly fifty years has preached the gospel in connection with farming.
