NOTES: James B. Fulton moved to York Co, South Carolina in 1787. He served in the Revolutionary War as a private and was drafted twice, the second time he was present at the Battle of Yorktown. He filed an extensive pension application, which is interesting in that he apparently tore out the pages from his family Bible and sent them in with his application. According to James' testimony when he applied for a pension, he copied his own entries out of his father's Bible in his own hand. Pages from The Family Bible of James & Anastasia Fulton are preserved on microfilm at the National Archives. Transcriptions appear to the right of each page. Close-up images of each page: page 1, page 2, page 3.

This Robert Fulton was born about 1721 and married Catherine Sparburn on Oct. 4, 1756 in Burlington Co, New Jersey. Their son James B. Fulton was born in New Jersey on January 21, 1765. Robert was 44 years old when he married Catherine, which makes one suspect Robert may have had a previous wife and perhaps other older children, perhaps the Robert Fulton who also came to Frederick Co, MD., sometime after 1776 and died there in 1806.
Catherine appears to have died shortly after the birth of James B. as Robert remarried Mary Rogers in Burlington Co, NJ., on July 19, 1765. Per James B.'s Revolutionary War Pension application, they moved to Frederick Co, MD. about 1774. The Frederick Co, MD. 1776 census lists a Robert Fulton age 55 (therefore born about 1721) and James Fulton age 11, and Mary Fulton age 48. James B. Fulton served in the Revolutionary War and filed an extensive pension application. His pension application is interesting in that he apparently tore out the pages from his family Bible and sent them in with his application. James B. Fulton was a private and was drafted twice, the second time he was present at the Battle of Yorktown. James B. Fulton moved to York Co, South Carolina in 1787. (I doubt it is a coincidence that 3 counties in N. Central South Carolina heavily settled by Scots-Irish from PA are named York, Lancaster, and Chester).
James B. Fulton married Anastasia Tuel on May 27, 1787 in Montgomery Co, Maryland. James died in York Co, SC., on April 26, 1848. He and Anastastia had 11 children including at least 5 sons and left many descendents across the south including a large group descended from their son Horatio in and around Hot Springs, Garland, and Montgomery Counties in Arkansas. http://www.scrankin.com/letters01.htm Letter from Selena James Reid to Rachel Fulton Caldwell
