George Fuller was an esteemed citizen, and he is often given the prefix Hon. in contemporary accounts. Born in Illinois to Edmund Hall and Mary (Turner) Fuller, he enlisted in the civil war in 1862 and served until 1865, seeing action in Tennessee and Georgia. He married an English immigrant, Matilda Ashton, then moved to Nebraska. He and Matilda had 11 children, nine of whom lived to bury him. He was not a dogmatic religious man like many of the time (including his wife), being a universalist. He was a prosperous brickmaker in addition to being a farmer (one of his brothers was also very rich as a farmer in Illinois, if the census data is accurate), and he was mayor of Seward, Nebraska in the 1890s. A famous hotel and many of the old roads of the towns in Seward county were built using his bricks. He later became a member of the Nebraska legislature as a third party candidate, and was active in politics until 1921. Mr. Fuller was a son of the revolution and his family line traces back to the brother of the doctor on the Mayflower. A short biography of Mr. Fuller from 1905 is available online, as are two pictures from different sites.
