I would love to exchange information with you. We both descend from James (1798). This is as far as I have been able to go back. My line is through William Fulton (b. 1825 d. 1888) John's younger brother.
I think one of your dates might need to be updated. James (1798) lived until 1874. Below is the URL to his grave. There are a couple of his sons, also brothers of John and William, that are also buried at Bryn Zion Cemetery. Also, i have been able to trace James Sr. (1798), through Census records up to 1870, he is living with his son James Jr. (and James Jr.'s wife Sarah, in Morrow County, Oho.
My information is
James Fulton (1798-1874). Morrow Co, OH.
William Fulton (1825-1888). Colusa, CA.
George Samuel Fulton (1863-1935). Azusa, CA.
Willimae Fulton (1889-1990) Alhambra, CA.
Alida Deanne Hillendahl (1917-) Alhambra, CA.

I have spend time tracing most of the children of James and Margaret. For your side (through John), i have found that his son Issac had sibings (Mary and John). And that Alonzo had siblings (Simeon, Charles, and i think Ada). I have never been able to find when (what year) or where that your ancestor John died. Some sources seem to think that he went out west for the Gold Rush. William, my ancestor, went out west, and ended up in Colusa County, CA. In 1850 William (his wife Elizabeth) and William's younger brother James were in Iowa. By 1860, William and Elizabeth had made it to California, and it appears that James headed back to Ohio (to Morrow County). I wonder if John went out with them. If so, there was no John Fulton listed in Iowa in the 1850 Census. Again, I have never been able to find anything on John, after 1840. John's wife (Mary) is a widow in the 1860 (or at least she is not listed with John).
I am curious about your sources, that you have been able to go back as far as you have?
On my mother's side of the family, through her father, we have traced our family back to William Brewster (on the Mayflower) so we belong the the Mayflower Society. Consequently, i have found how difficult it can be to confirm information back before 1800. Typically, I have found information in old published books - both family history books, and county history books, Bible records, etc. What sources do you have on the Fultons - if you don't mind my asking? It may be that the information was simply passed down through the generations. Or maybe you have documents? In either case, i would love to share with you, what i have.
I am in California. How about you?
Look forward to hearing more from you.
Hi. I found your post on the Fulton grave at St Mary's Cemetery, in White County, Ark. If that is your ancestor, then we are related (distant cousins). I descend from the Fulton family, they started in Morrow County, Ohio. Well, actually they were in PA before that. Let me know if you would like to exchange information.
