[p. 979] owner of the valuable sixty-two acre farm on which he resides, which is situated in North Beaver Township, on the Mt. Jackson-Mt. Air Road, about two and one-half miles southwest of Mt. Jackson, was born on an adjoining farm April 19, 1866. His parents were Milton and Margaret (Hayes) Fullerton, and he is a representative of an old and prominent county family. Mr. Fullerton grew to manhood on his father's farm and obtained his education in the public schools. He is engaged in general farming and dairying, making a specialty of the latter industry. A portion of his farm was taken from the old homestead, and thirty-three acres originally belonged to the old John R. Hayes farm. The substantial barn, which is a feature of the place, he bought from Martha Wells, it formerly standing on her property at Mahoningtown. It was constructed of sound timber and after Mr. Fullerton had purchased it and moved it to his own place and set it on a new foundation, it gave him a substantial structure which scarcely has its equal on any farm in this vicinity. In 1889 he erected his commodious and comfortable frame residence. Mr. Fullerton is a man of progressive ideas and this is shown by his general use of improved machinery and by the interest he takes in a silo he has in course of building.
Mr. Fullerton was united in marriage with Jennie McCreary, who was born and reared in North Beaver Township, north of Westfield Church. She is a daughter of William and Martha (Shook) McCreary. They have three childrenMabel, Nina and Sylvia. The family belong to the Westfield Presbyterian Church.
