Fulkard was baptized in New Brunswick, NJ, on 18 Jun 1727, the second of five sons. His brothers were Jacob (bpt. 28 Feb 1725), Johanis (bpt. 17 May 1734), Cornelis (bpt. 13 Aug 1738) and Joseph (bpt. 10 Sep 1741). All were baptized at the Middlesex Dutch Reformed Church in New Brunswick. (see Note #1)
He was originally named 'Folkert' but this was subsequently "Anglicized" into Fulkard. In 1748 he married Maria BOGART (Bogert) and moved into Somerset County. They traveled to New Amsterdam in 1751 to witness the baptism of Rebecca Duryea, the granddaughter of Rebecca Volkertsen and Joost Duryea, their presence recorded as 'Folkert Folckerse and Maria Bogart, his wife.' The biography of John N. BOWLDS, a later descendant, in a history of Jasper Township, Wayne Co., Illinois, on p. 94 states:
"The Fulkersons were an old New Jersey family and settled at a very early day seven miles northeast of Bardstown. General George Washington often stopped with them in New Jersey during the Revolutionary war." This is not yet confirmed by a second source. Washington quartered his troops and lived in the same locale where the Fulkersons lived, for extended periods during the Revolution, and has been documented as often stopping at other local farms.
His father died in 1780, leaving a considerable estate. After the estate was settled Fulkard and his children moved to Kentucky, which then consisted of three counties under the dominion of Virginia. The end of the Revolution possibly influenced the move. It promised new opportunities and his family was being reunited, with returning son Captain Philip Fulkerson receiving a land grant in Kentucky (on 20 Apr 1782) based on his service in the revolutionary army.
Fulkard moved onto 300 acres in Nelson Co., KY, as listed on Treasury Warrant #4706 in
"... on the south side of the Rolling Fork River, 1/2 mi below the mouth of the
first branch below Salt Lick Creek, running southward and up the river."
This region is just south of Louisville, KY. Abraham LINCOLN was born at Hodgenville, KY, a little bit southwest, in 1809. Click on map for Google Map.
Little is known about Fulkard's wife Maria Bogart except that she survived him, as she is mentioned in his will. Fulkard died in 1807 in Nelson Co., KY.
1. VOLKERT FULKERSON was baptized on 6 Oct 1750 and married Mary BOYCE on 27 Sep 1772, both at New Brunswick, Middlesex Co., NJ. He may have died relatively young, as he had only one known child, Philip (see Note #2). There was a "Fulkert Fulkerson" on the roster Captain Ten Eyck's Somerset County militia company...unknown if this is the same person. Interestingly, the records of the estate sale of Samuel CARTER, deceased, on the 17th and 18th of January 1810 in Hardin Co., KY, mention his young nephew Peter AND a Fulker FULKERSON. Fulker purchased 3 heifers, 1 hog and 1 hammer for $23.42. If this Fulker is the same as Volkert, then Volkert lived to at least 60 and was not a pauper at that age. It could not have been his father Fulkard, who died in 1807. There is a slim chance it was Fulkerd, son of Captain Philip FULKERSON, who lived two counties away in Ohio County at that time. This requires further investigation.
Philip FULKERSON.......b.ca. 1773, m. Elizabeth DYAL about 1800, lived in Nelson Co., KY and died by 1821. They had 8 children:
George W. FULKERSON....b. ca 1801, probably in Nelson Co., KY. He m. Rachael RIGGS (b. ca. 1803) on 23 May 1822 in Nelson Co., KY, lived in Daviess Co., KY in 1840 when the census listed the following for his household:
1 man 30-40 years old (George)
1 woman 30-40 years old (Rachael)
1 girl 15-20 years old (????)
1 girl 10-15 years old (????)
2 girls 5-10 years old (Rosella and ????)
1 girl under 5 years old (probably Teresa Ann)
2 boys 10-15 years old
John P. was probably John Philip, possibly named after George's father and brother.
John P. was reportedy born in Nelson Co. and lived in Daviess Co., the same as George W.
John P. had a son named George: one normally meticulous researcher (Laila Thompson) listed him as George W. Jr. and placed him in this branch
the 1850 Census for Daviess County showed John P. (Family Number 505) living very near his likely mother, Rachel Riggs Fulkerson LANHAM (Family Number 491). Three other Fulkersons nearby were
George's older brother Jacob FULKERSON, age 53 (Family Number 461),
George's younger brother Benjamin Thomas FULKERSON, age 35 (Family Number 500) and
an UNKNOWN James FULKERSON, age 26 (Family Number 489) with a wife Caroline, age 32, and a daughter Mary, age 6.
The just-mentioned James and Caroline named one son George W. and named another son John.
George married Rachael RIGGS on 23 May 1822 in Nelson County. Just two months earlier, on 16 Mar 1822, a Mary RIGGS was married to a John MCDANIEL in that same county. There was clearly an association between the three families – FULKERSON, MCDANIEL and RIGGS – that possibly helped John P. FULKERSON become acquainted with Margaret "Hannah" McDANIEL.]
Based on the 1840, 1850 and 1880 Census information, it would not be reckless to state that John P. and James were VERY PROBABLY the sons of George W. FULKERSON.
A "Rachiah FULKINSON" m. an Elias LANHAM in Hancock Co., KY on 17 Mar 1846. The 1850 census for Daviess Co., KY, shows Elias LANHAM, age 64, and Rachel, age 47, living with two Fulkerson girls: "Trecy" (age 14) and "Eleanora" (age 6). It appears likely that George W. FULKERSON died around 1845.
Unknown FULKERSON....female, born ca. 1820-1825
Unknown FULKERSON....male, born ca. 1825-1830. This is PROBABLY the James who was age 26 in the 1850 Census discussed above. On the 1880 Census, his wife Caroline is a widow, age 63, living in Upper Town with three sons, in the household of her son J. William FULKERSON.

Mr. Fulkerson is the owner of a good residence property in the city of Santa Rosa besides other city property, two residences and a business house located on the corner of Mendocino and Cherry Streets. One of the choicest farm properties in the vicinity of Santa Rosa is the fine ranch of fifty-one acres owned by him in Rincon Valley, situated on the Santa Rosa and Sonoma Road, three miles east of the city. The location is one of great natural beauty. The fine dwelling house commands from its elevation a view of the charming valley and makes the location one suited for a delightful home.

1850 Census-IN-Vigo-Otter Creek Twp
John FULKERSON.................b. 1810; married Elizabeth RICHARDSON in Fountain Co., IN on 3 January 1831. They moved to Warwick Co., IN before 1850, and later to Iowa where he bought out his brothers who were moving to California. They had two children - Richard, who died young, and Sarah Ann.
Sarah Ann FULKERSON....b. ca. 1842, ran away at 14 and married Wm. Thomas SMITH in Iowa in 1856. They moved to Kentucky, then back to Iowa, then to Marion, Kansas, then to Oklahoma, and finally to Geyserville, CA.
John FULKERSON......b. after 1774. John married Elizabeth OGDEN on 24 Dec 1809 in a ceremony performed by Rev. William HAYS, per his marriage records, place not recorded. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE MARRIAGE DOCUMENTS. The Kentucky marriage bond was signed by John FULKERSON and Horatio MAIDEN (or WAIDE?) and witnessed by Jack THOMAS. Based on the scarce dates and facts we know, it is possible that Elizabeth died in childbirth early in 1811. John m. 2nd to Lydia SHARD on 21 Mar 1811. Both marriages were reportedly in Hardin Co., KY. [There is an earlier marriage record for Ohio Co., KY, dated 3 Feb 1801, for a John FULKERSON and Nancy HOCKER. It could have been this John...the date doesn't appear to fit any of the many other John Fulkersons in the US at that time.] It's thought that John and Lydia probably died in the 1820s. One son, Benjamin (b. 1814?), was probably raised by his grandparents. Another likely son is William S., born in 1811, who married two Sarah's and had 4 children by the latter when he was in his sixties!
William S. FULKERSON.....b. 1811, d. May 1880 at Big Clifty, m. 1st, Sarah B. (?-1865), had no children. By 1870, age about 59, he married a 22-year-old Sarah J. The 1880 Census showed Sarah as widowed with four children, living at Big Clifty, Grayson Co., KY.
Nancy FULKERSON.......b. ca. 1870 in KY, per 1880 Census.
James B. FULKERSON....b. ca. 1872 in KY, per 1880 Census.
This COULD be the James Benjamin Fulkerson who is the subject of an Unattached Fulkersons page on this site. This James B. had an uncle and two older cousins named Benjamin, which is at least an interesting coincidence. The possibility of his descendants "losing track of family" is somewhat likely here. His father died when he was young, and his siblings were sisters who probably married and gained new surnames. His cousins were closer in age to his mother, he had no aunts, and his only uncle was an aging widower when his father died.
Mary C FULKERSON.....b. ca. 1875 in KY, per 1880 Census
Francis E FULKERSON...b. ca. 1879 in KY, per 1880 Census
Benjamin O. FULKERSON.....1814-after 1879, lived in in Grayson Co., KY.

He married (1st) Mary Ann PIRTLE (b. 1816, KY) and had 9 children between 1838-1856, then married (2nd) Martha CALVERT and had a tenth child. Benjamin was listed on Grayson County Census of 1850 with Mary and seven children. On the 1880 Census he was widowed and living on son Benjamin's farm.

Bond signed by John Fulkerson Sr. Witnesses John Jr. and Fulkerd."] Margaret FULKERSON....this appears to be the Margaret who married William LIPSEY on 18 Sep 1800 in Jessamine Co., KY - the record lists Peter Fulkerson (her oldest brother) as bondsman and John Fulkerson as father of the bride.

Margaret subsequently married (2nd) to William RICHARDSON (b. ca. 1787 in Maryland), per the Hardin County Clerk records, Vol. A, Page 29:

Jacob was first documented in Mercer Co., KY in February 1792 when he and brother Philip appraised the estate of John Gordon.

Jacob's father left 450 acres to be divided three ways between his wife, Mary, and sons Jacob and Philip. Jacob and Abigail lived on Plum Run Road, near Bloomfield, Nelson Co., KY. On 9 Apr 1799, they sold a part of Plum Run to Zachariah AUD.
Jacob died following an attempted surgery by Dr. Walter BRASHEAR of Bardstown to remove a bladder stone which weighed nearly a half pound. It had made Jacob suffer for many months, such that he wished to either die or have it successfully removed. It proved too large (a 6 inch x 7.5 inch oval) to be grasped by medical instruments.

During this time he began his career and established his reputation as an evangelist Presbyterian minister who had 'risen from the gutter,' even publishing an autobiography about his ascent to the ministry. They were found in Greene Co., Tennesee in the 1900 Census and again in 1903 when their names were listed on the sale of their homestead. They apparently moved from there to Franklin Co., TN, where his rough upbringing came to the surface:
Wichita (Texas) Daily Times: April 3, 1908: "Bryant H. FULKERSON, a Methodist preacher of Franklin County, Tennessee, who, it is alleged, deserted his wife and family and eloped with a young lady by the name of Miss Ada TEMPLETON, was placed under arrest at Riverside, California, yesterday." This was followed by another report, in "The Ravia Herald" 9 May 1908, Ravia, Johnston County, Oklahoma: "Rev. B. H. Fulkerson, charged with abduction, was convicted in the criminal court at Winchester, Tennessee, and his punishment fixed at ten years in the penitentiary. Rev. Mr. Fulkerson recently eloped from this county with Miss Ada Templeton, leaving his wife behind. The couple were apprehended in California and brought back."
Nevada moved back to Ft. Worth, Texas by 1910 and listed herself as a widow from that point forward. She died on 21 Jun 1950 in Ft. Worth. Bryant next showed up in the 1915 Kansas State Census, listed as "B H Fulkerson" and living in a rented house in Sedgwick twp., Harvey Co., KS. He described himself as a minister, born in Kentucky and lately of New Mexico. Bryant later married (2nd?)

Anna America CONNER......25 Aug 1846-14 Mar 1928, m. cousinChristopher Hahn FULKERSON on 15 Sep 1864, three children. In 1928 she lived at Fairfield, Nelson Co., KY. The informant for her death certificate was "Miss Lillie Fulkerson" of Bloomfield KY.
In some family genealogies, Fulkard is reported as having been baptized on 10 Jan 1725 and is placed among the siblings of Captain James Fulkerson, who did have a brother named Volkert - who was baptized 10 Jan 1725 at the Dutch Reformed Church, Raritan, New Jersey. However, that entire familymoved to North Carolina in 1752.
Captain James' brother Volkert remained in North Carolina from 1752 to 1770, when he moved to Halifax Co., VA. There are 7 land titles (1754-1768) and 6 court records (1772-1777) that attest to his whereabouts. Fulkard, the subject of this page, was living and having children in New Jersey during this time period, and thus could not have been the same person as Captain James' brother.
Another coincidence is that Captain James and his siblings had a father named Volkert, and Fulkard's father was a Volkert, but there were about a dozen people named 'Volkert Volkertson' living in New Jersey in the first half of the 18th century.
