of Salem and Rehoboth was
one of several emmigrant Fullers. His origins
are obscure. Many have tied him to the Mayflower Fullers, but
this is uncertain at best. What is
given here is a straight line descent for the first
several generations from Robert, and is by no means complete.
This line of Fullers is tied to several other families, notably Gifford,
Morton, Jenney & Carpenter. See these lines for the details. Among Robert's descendants
given here is Timothy Fuller of Duchess county, New York. He
fought in the Revolutionary War (see DAR Patriot Index), as did a brother
and two brothers-in-law. Those who are descendants of John
Coleman Hardesty and his brother James Franklin
Hardesty can claim Timothy as an ancestor, as John and
James married Fuller sisters, descendants of Timothy.
