Louis Fuller, Mayflower Descendant

27 11 2008

In honor of Thanksgiving, I am posting the grave of Louis Samuel Fuller, descendant of pilgrim Edward Fuller. Louis was born in Colebrook, Ashtabula County, Ohio, the son of Samuel and Grace (Bently) Fuller. His tombstone gives his date of birth as 1 April 1860, while his death certificate lists it as 1 April 1859. The 1860 census in Colebrook lists his age as 1/12, making the 1860 date more likely. Louis was appointed the pastor of Winchester Methodist Church in 1901. He died in Columbus on 29 April 1928 and is buried in Union Grove Cemetery, Canal Winchester, Franklin County.
