Enoch Fuller

M, b. 1784, d. 9 June 1860
     Note:
1. From "History of the Western Reserve" by Harriet Taylor Upton, 1910, Vol. 1, page 559:

"An early settler, Enoch Fuller is remembered particularly because his wife bore 'the euphonious name of Karenhappuch.' He had a large family of daughters whose descendants still live on the Reserve. His son Josiah was a stage driver, later a liveryman and finally settled on a farm at Saybrook. He was a great Mason, went to the conclave at San Francisco and was the life of the party."

2. From "History of Ashtabula County" by Moina W. Large, Vol. 1, Historical Publishing Co., Topeka-Indianapolis, 1924, Chapter XII, "Ashtabula Township":

"Rev. John Hall, who was for a long time a resident here and for several years rector of St. Peter's Church, wrote a series of historical sketches in the year 1856, relative to Ashtabula as a township and village, from which the following information is taken....

..... 'The writer, upon arrival (February 7, 1811), found settled here .... p. 159 ... "Enoch Fuller, born in New York and came to Austinburg in 1807; poor man and worked for Hall Smith clearing land.'

3. Enoch and Karenhappuch had 13 girls and 4 boys according to the Taylor family legend, as written in that correspondence.

4. Enoch Fuller purchased one acre and 40 rods, in Ashtabula County, in 1824 from Amos Fisk and Mary Fisk (Deed book "F", page 432). Enoch later sold this same land to his son Josiah Fuller in 1833 (Deed book "N", page 189).

5. From "The Life of Rev. John Hall", by his grandson Rev. Francis J. Hall (quote from unpublished manuscript):

"My Grandfather was born in Lenox, Massachusetts, November 5, 1788, of puritan ancestry. The line, so far as ascertained, begins with Ichabod Hall, who was born in Wales about 1705, and in early life came to New England. He was the first of seventeen children. He settled in Enfield, Connecticut, and had nine children.

Ebenezer, the oldest of these was born in 1730. he moved to Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and was twice married, having twelve children by his first wife and four by his second wife. He was commander of the Massachusetts volunteers for frontier defense, and was noted as an Indian fighter.

The sixth of his children was Moses, born in New Marlborough, Massachusetts, in 1762. He enlisted in the Continental Army of the Revolutionary War at the age of eighteen. Subsequently he was a cloth dresser at Lee, Massachusetts, and then turned to farming in Lenox, Massachusetts. He had fourteen children, of whom the subject of this "Life" was the oldest.

My grandfather showed an early taste for study, and studied Latin and Greek under the Rev. Dr. Hyde, a Congregational minister at Lenox. At the age of nineteen he began to study medicine, but the migration of the family to Ohio changed his plans.

He travelled alone on horse-back to Ashtabula, Ohio, reaching there February 7, 1811. His father, Moses Hall, came to Ohio in the same year with the rest of his children; and bought timbered lands in Ashtabula, Dover and Lorain County, giving 150 acres to each of his sons and 100 acres to each of his daughters--the land being distributed in the places above named.

My Grandfather at once took a clerkship with Mr. Hall Smith, a cousin who kept a general store in Ashtabula. He boarded with this cousin, at the house of the Rev. Joseph Badger, a Presbyterian Missionary.

Mr. Badger was the first Christian Missionary in Ohio, commencing his labours in 1800 and continuing them for many years. His travels and toils were heroic, and in my own childhood my Grandfather told me various stories of his remarkable adventures among the Indians and with the wild beasts in the forests.

During the war of 1812, in March, 1813, my Grandfather was bringing a sleigh-load of goods for Mr. Hall Smith from Connecticut. In Buffalo his sleigh was seized for use in meeting a British company which was thought to be advancing on the ice across Lake Erie to attack the city. He went along as driver. The alarm proved to be a false one, and he recovered his sleigh, reloaded his goods, and rode on to Ashtabula. In May of the same year he served in command of one of several small detachments sent out to watch along the lake shore near Ashtabula Harbor against threatened landings of the British. Harmless shots were exchanged with a British vessel off shore, which finally sailed away. It was thought that the maneuver of marching in a circle among the trees gave the enemy the impression that a large force of Americans was ready to resist a landing." (end manuscript quote.)

Enoch Fuller was born in 1784 at Dutchess or Columbia Co. (probably), NY,

The individual who I believe (but have never proven) was his father, Josiah Fuller, appears in the 1790 census, page 233, Hillsdale, Columbia County, New York, and in the 1830 census, page 160, Saratoga, Saratoga County. He gave depositions in Warren and Saratoga Counties in March and May, 1833, respectively, in support of his brother Varsell's Revolutionary War pension application.1

He was the son of Josiah Fuller and Ruth (?) Enoch Fuller lived in 1807 at Austinburg, Ashtabula Co., OH; Enoch Fuller joined the Western Reserve Company as a hired hand and walked the Mohawk Trail to the Western Reserve of Ohio, arriving about 1807, according to family tradition.

Enoch Fuller appears at number 249 on the 1811 tax list for Ashtabula County.2

He married Karenhappuch Parmer/Palmer, daughter of (?) Parmer/Palmer, on 12 January 1809 at Austinburg (probably), Geauga (now Ashtabula) Co., OH, by Noah Cowles, J.P. In the "Widow's Declaration" affidavit dated 7 Febuary 1876, Pension File of Happy Fuller, she stated that the marriage date was 13 February 1807.

Marriage record (found in Geauga County records) names her "Karen Happuch Parmer of Richfield". "Richfield Township" was an early designation of the part of the Western Reserve that was later established as Ashtabula County, and is not near the present-day town of Richfield, Ohio.

In her pension application, Karenhappuch stated she was married at Austinburg. This matches the quotation from "History of Ashtabula County" which says Enoch Fuller came first to Austinburg and worked there clearing land for Hall Smith.3

Enoch Fuller began military service on 25 August 1812 at Ashtabula Co., OH, Private, Capt. John R. Reed's Co., Ohio Militia, through 9 March, 1813. Was serving as guard of military stores at Ashtabula Harbor when the British in ships offshore fired at the log storage house.4,5

Enoch Fuller lived in October 1850 at Ashtabula, Ashtabula Co., OH.1
He died on 9 June 1860 at Ashtabula, Ashtabula Co., OH,

Happy Fuller's pension records (official file summary) says 1861. Headstone shows year 1860. Affidavit of Josiah Fuller and Julia Ann Fuller in pension file also says it was 1860. The 1860 Federal Census of Saybrook Twp., Ashtabula County was conducted on June 13, 1860. On that date, Happy Fuller is found living with only her 18-year old granddaughter, Frances Maria Laskey (Charlotte's daughter) in the household. Thus, 1860 appears to be the correct year. He was buried in June 1860 at Chestnut Grove Cemetery, Ashtabula, Ashtabula Co., OH, Headstones for Enoch and Happy Fuller include (on the top edge) the words "Grandfather" and "Grandmother", respectively, indicating that the stones were placed by a grandchild. Deteriorated headstones for the first wife (Mary Ann), and a daughter (Catherine) of Enoch's son Josiah Fuller are adjacent, and his grandson Josiah Fuller's headstone, along with that of his wife Mary, are also adjacent to the lot. Headstones seen and photographed by Donald L. Boyd, August 2002.

Regimental History:

One Hundred and Fifth Infantry. Col., Albert S. Hall; Lieut. Cols., William R. Tolles, George T. Perkins; Maj. Charles G. Edwards. This regiment was organized at Camp Cleveland, Aug. 20 and 21, 1862, to serve for three years. Within one hour after muster-in the regiment, 1,013 strong, was on the march to the station, under orders to leave the state. Its first field of operations was in Kentucky and after various marches in which it suffered much, it left Louisville in October, marched via Taylorsville and Bloomfield, to Perryville, where it was engaged in the battle of that name. The regiment went into this battle 800 strong and of these 48 were killed and 217 wounded, many of whom died of their wounds. Passing next into Tennessee the regiment remained at Murfreesboro until the following June, when it broke camp to participate in the Tullahoma campaign. It was engaged at Chickamauga and was highly complimented by the brigade commander. The casualties of the regiment in this battle were 80 killed, wounded and prisoners, and as two of the largest companies were not in the engagement the casualties were proportionately very heavy. The regiment took part in the maneuvers at Chattanooga and participated in the battle of Missionary ridge, its loss being comparatively slight. In the long and fatiguing Atlanta campaign of many skirmishes and battles, the regiment made a good record, and although not immediately engaged in any of the heavy engagements, its casualties were large. After the fall of Atlanta it marched to the sea and up through the Carolinas, thence to Washington, and then home, being mustered out on June 3, 1865. Of the 1,013 men who left Cleveland in 1862 only 427 were present at the final roll-call.3,4

He died on 9 August 1864 at Atlanta, Fulton Co., GA, Killed in line of duty, by Confederate gunfire.5

The children of Josiah Fulller and Irena Dickenson are not shown in "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations", Vol. 4, 2nd Edition, however some of them, including the Revolutionary War veteran Varsel Fuller, have been reasonably well documented. See:

"From the Mayflower ... To Michigan" http://www.jowest.net/Genealogy/Jo/Fuller/Fuller.htm

Varsel's brother Josiah Fuller, b. about 1763, is not well documented, but his existence, and survival to relatively old age, is documented via his 1833 affidavits in Warren and Saratoga Counties, New York, in support of Varsel's Revolutionary War pension application. His affidavits establish his parents as Josiah and Irena (Dickenson) Fuller of Amenia.

He was the son of Josiah Fuller and Irena Dickenson.1 Josiah Fuller married Ruth (?) circa 1783. Josiah Fuller lived in 1790 at Hillsdale, Columbia Co., NY;

Child of Josiah Fuller and Ruth (?)

  • Enoch Fuller+ b. 1784, d. 9 Jun 1860; This relationship remains undocumented (2009). "Josiah" was clearly a name of great significance in the Enoch Fuller family -- not only was it used for firstborn sons in two succeeding generations, but Enoch's daughter Julia Ann married her cousin Aaron Fuller, son of "Josiah Fuller of New York". The name was not common, multiple children of Enoch informed their children that they were Pilgrim descendants, and this relationship represents the most logical connection available with the circumstantial evidence available to me.

Josiah Fuller

M, b. 1920, d. 2005
     Note: "This is the story of our family as I have been able to put it together. Heather Makechnie, a genealogist I met at Proctor (Academy, Andover, N.H.) at my fiftieth reunion came up with this scenario by matching birth dates and places. Benjamin Fuller came with the first settlers to Colchester, New London County, Connecticut. He was one of the first persons to die in the settlement in 1740. He and his wife, Content, had three sons, Matthew, Josiah born 1729, and Benjamin. Josiah married Irena Dickinson in Sharon Connecticut in 1749. They either moved to Dutchess County, New York or there was a boundary change. This location was called the Oblong, a disputed boundary area between the Hudson and the Connecticut rivers claimed by New York and the New England Colonies. Josiah and Irena had a son Josiah born in 1763. Josiah is listed as the head of a household in Columbia or Albany County in the 1790 census. Josiah had a son Enoch born in 1784 who joined the Western Reserve Company as a hired hand as they walked the Mohawk trail to Ohio. He came to Ashtabula in 1807. He died June 9 1861 age 76 years in Saybrook , Ohio. He served as a private in John Reed’s company during the War of 1812, guarding military stores at the mouth of the Ashtabula River. He served long enough so his widow collected a pension. Enoch married Karen Happuch Palmer Jan 12 1809. She was the daughter of the Congregational minister. She died, August 1884 age 94. I guess she was named after one of Job’s daughters. Karen Happuch comes from the Hebrew, meaning a horn of eye paint. At that time the women of the area whether they were Hebrew, Canaanites or Egyptian liked to paint around their eyes and eyelashes to give them the sultry almond eyed look. I wonder if the reverend knew the derivation of the name? The twin honored grave stones at the grave in Ashtabula are for Enoch and Happy.

Enoch’s daughter Ruth Fuller born July 1834 married John Brainard June 1859. Enoch’s son Josiah Fuller was born Ashtabula, Ohio, October 14, 1810 and died on October 24 1895. Josiah married Mary Steward on, Dec16, 1832 in Ashtabula. He married Caroline Steward on Oct 4, 1857 in Ashtabula. He married Catharine Nile, on Nov 27, 1866 in Mercer, Ohio. We have a gold topped cane that George Porter Fuller gave him. It is has a Masonic emblem on it and the engraving reads, "Josiah Fuller born Ashtabula, Ohio, October 14,1810. Presented by his son George October 14, 1882." For a while, Josiah and Enoch ran a livery stable in Ashtabula. A note in the "History of the Western Reserve" says, "Josiah was a stage driver, later a liveryman and finally settled on a farm in Saybrook. He was a great Mason, went to the conclave at San Francisco and was the life of the party."

Josiah Fuller was born in 1920. He was the son of Nathaniel Fuller and Mary Elizabeth Faulkner. Josiah Fuller died in 2005.
