page 745


Alexander Fullerton, of the firm of Ferguson & Fullerton, proprietors of the flour-mill, Hudson, Ind., was born in Washington County, Pa., in 1817.  He was left fatherless in his childhood and made his home with strangers till manhood.  In 1831 he went to Seneca County, Ohio, with the family in which he lived.  He early in life began to work in a mill, and upon reaching manhood chose that occupation as a means of gaining a livelihood.  He thoroughly understands every detail of the business, and the mill with which he is connected manufactures a fine grade of flour, having a good custom trade.  Mr. Fullerton was married in Ohio, to Mary Adams, a native of Jefferson County, Ohio, where she was reared.  Mr. and Mrs. Fullerton have had seven children, but three of whom are living -- Agnes, wife of Samuel Ferguson; Mary, wife of Luther B. Camp, and Sarah, wife of Orlando Kimmel, of Lagrange County.  Four children died in early childhood.
