of an expedition against the Nanticokes and Wicomicoes on the Eastern

of the Lower House Assembly of Maryland from which he ultimately served
as Puritan Governor of Maryland. Governor Fuller, in 1654, agreed to the

Anney Fuller was the wife of Cooper B. Fuller, who was something of a
character but a most excellent man.
In the 1850 Census for Franklin GA, Cooper B. Fuller is a farmer and his
Ann keeps house. He is 50 and she is 37. Since Sarah C.
Fuller is 19 and would have been born in 1831, one year before Cooper
and Ann married, it is not clear that she is Cooper's child. Omar
B. Fuller is likely their first son together, at least following
Known Children of Cooper and Anney Fuller:
In the 1860 Census for
Carnesville, GA, Cooper B. Fuller is listed as a
farmer with his wife Ann (46) and housekeeper.

and died March 8, 1904 in Carnes AL at age 44. Her husband
John with his three brothers, James, Miles and William traveled from
Chattooga Valley Georgia over the Sand Mountain in a wagon making

ultimately killed in a cotton gin accident in 1818.
In the 1870 Census for Carnesville, Franklin County, GA, Cooper is now
70. His occupation is illegible to me, but his wife Ann is keeping

together in Rosemont Cemetery in Union, SC.

are living on Cedar Street in Buffalo, SC with their children:

spinner at the local cotton mill. They rent this home for
$280/month. Ben's formal education ended in 7th grade.
Jessie at 5th grade per this census. From the census it appears
that Ben made $750/month and Jessie 350/month.
