Bio and Links
Bio Photo I inherited my love of genealogy from my grandmother, Maxine Kortge Fulton. She did her research the hard way... letters, phone calls, and getting in the car and driving to where they wanted answers from! I know she would be so envious of how much easier it is now for us to find the information we are looking for. She would be so excited to see how far back I've gotten in our family tree as well! I have always loved learning about our family and feel very fortunate to have inherited that love and interest. I guess part of it hails from my love of antiques and old things... and appreciation for what our ancestors had to endure before us... Our family history is well documented in several lines and not as much in others. I have been lucky over the years (I started young... in my teens...) to find relatives who have been very generous with sharing pictures, stories, and even giving me diaries and items that belonged to my ancestors... Those are days I have to pinch myself! ;-) I have enjoyed sharing our family tree with my entire extended family... I have an extensive library of photos of many of the families below and am always happy to share pictures. Please just give me time to respond! I'm a busy working mom of three who also cares for my dad who has brain cancer now. My dad has truly enjoyed learning his heritage and we've enjoyed a few trips "searching" for for family cemeteries/graves! My mom and I are now preparing to find some time to do some visits on her side of the family. Note: All records that I manage/maintain are direct lines to me or very closely related. The original submissions of some of these memorials are intact and I offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to those that have taken the time to photograph and record so many of these memorials and those that have transferred management to me, as a direct family member. Family names that I actively research and will not transfer records for: My side: Elston, Yeackel, Morton, Helwig, Gilmore, Green/e, Bradstreet, Dudley, Kortge, Coffey, Weber, Black, MosierFulton, Curtiss, Fairchild, Fenton, Gard, Bishop, Goble,My husband's side: Barrett, Burke, Culhane, Voltin, Sherman, Cunning, Poage, Stickleman,

The transfer of your great grandfather to you
Hello, I am just inquiring to see if you had any response to your request. I have sent three bios regarding my relatives to the person who manages your great grandfather C. G. Fulton's memorial and so far no response. I am wondering if that person is active. If not, will try to work through Find a Grave.

RE: Henrietta (Bones) Fenton
Happy to add the clipping to Henrietta's page. I'm not related but am working through an archive of my uncles papers, several generations of letters, photos, etc and the clipping actually fell out of an album of postcards from the turn of the century. It was the only clipping in the album - everything else is a postcard. The owner was Mary Frances (Scott) Cook whose sister was a famous suffragette - Abigail Scott Duniway. Mary Frances' husband Amos Cook was one of the "Men of Peoria" who emigrated to Oregon in 1839/1840. He was one of the (sometimes called 'the') first actual settler(s) to come to Oregon, as opposed to the missionaries and fur trappers. The Scott family crossed the plains the same year as Henrietta's family.

Henrietta (Bones) Fenton
I just posted an obit with photo of Henrietta to her memorial page. As she is the mother of Georgiana (Fenton) Curtiss I thought you would like to know.

Robert Fulton
Dear mrs. Barrett, I send this message to you as you seem to know a lot about the Fulton family. The late former WW2 pilot Robert C. Fulton is of interest to me. While he served in the 370 Fighter Group in Belgium he had a good friend called Clark Fitts. Fitts almost died in a plane crash in 1945. Robert hurried to the site to help him. We have put up a memorial plaque to commemorate the crash in Belgium. No connection haven been established with the Fitt's family as of yet, in the book on the 370 FG information on him seem to have come from Robert. Would there still be any record on Roberts military career, any link with Fitts kept in the family files? Sorry for this unusual questions, of something so long ago. Yours sincerely, Luc Cox, Belgium.

Emmet Morton (1866-1946)
My name is Phyllis Zegers. I see on Find-A-Grave you may be related to Emmet S. Morton (1866 - 1946). He was the son of William H. Morton and Mary A. Helwig. Emmet was born in Pennsylvania in 1866 and died at the Oregon State Hospital in Salem, Oregon on 2/12/1946. I have recently updated a memorial for him on  Here’s the URL:

The memorial now contains his death certificate, a biography and information about the location of his ashes. His cremains are being held at the Oregon State Hospital and can still be claimed by a relative. I have an interest in those like Emmet who died at an Oregon institution and whose cremains have not yet been taken by the family. My hope is to let relatives know where the cremains are now in case they would like to claim them. The state can mail his ashes and medical file to you. The link to the state department in charge of the cremains is

On YouTube there is a trailer for a documentary video that explains the situation with the ashes:

Please feel free to share this letter with anyone who may be related to Emmet. Please let me know if you have an questions. I would be glad to give hints on how to navigate the process of claiming the ashes.
