Now to continue with the biography of Ezekiel Brown;
Ezekiel Brown was married to Ruth Fuller on June 26, 1856 in Guernsey County, Ohio. Ruth Fuller was born on January 21, 1830 in Guernsey County, Ohio. She is believed to be the daughter of Thomas R. Fuller (1798 - 1877) and Mary (Johnston) Fuller (1796 - 1872).

At the time of the 1860 census, Thomas Fuller and his family are found in Wheeling Tp, Guernsey County, Ohio;
Thomas R Fuller M 60 Pennsylvania
Mary Fuller F 65 Pennsylvania
Jemima Fuller F 22 Ohio
Ionis Fuller (Jonas?) M 15 Ohio
Samuel Fuller M 12 Ohio
Anne Fuller F 9 Ohio .

Ruth Fuller apparently was the mother of two son's out of wedlock, before she married Ezekiel Brown in 1856. They were Jonas J. Fuller, born 2 Jan 1846 & Samuel A. Fuller, born about 1848.

According to Ruth's will, it appears that Ruth had two illegitimate children when she was in her teens before her marriage to Ezekiel Brown. According to her Will, Jonas Fuller & Samuel Fuller are her two son's named "Fuller" before she married Ezekiel Brown. Sarah & Jonas followed the Brown's to Nebraska, but as passed down thru the family, Ezekiel Brown never allowed Jonas to be in his house. Ruth's will excluded Jonas & Samuel and their children from receiving any of the Ezekiel Brown's estate.
