37. James Fulton (John 2 , James 1 ), who was born 10 August 1755 and died the 14 February 1834, was married the 27 September 1810 to Elizabeth Mitchel, who was born 1 March 1766, died 11 Sept, 1850. (30) James Fulton is buried in the Bethel Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Augusta County, Virginia. There is no marker on his grave, but his burial is recorded in the church register which begins in 1817. Elizabeth is buried at the Old Providence Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. James Fulton was taxed under John Fulton's name as still living in the home of his father in 1790, shortly before his father's death. Elizabeth Mitchell was the daughter of Thomas Mitchel and Elizabeth McClahan Moor, widow of Samuel Moor who was accidently killed in 1752. Elizabeth McClahan Moor died the 1 August 1779 in her 49th year. The family Bible of Thomas Mitchel is now owned by M. T. McClure. This Bible provides information on Elizabeth's family. Thomas Mitchel was born 23 September 1732 and died the 30 December 1806.

Another Bible in the possession of Vance McClure of Greenville, Virginia gives birth, death, and marriage records of James Fulton and his wife Elizabeth Mitchell and Elizabeth's parents.

Since James was 55 and Elizabeth was 44 when they were married, there are no children noted. James Fulton sold land to John McClure a few years before his death and the balance of James and Elizabeth's estate was inherited by John McClure, the grandson of Elizabeth's sister in 1834. Elizabeth was living in the John McClure household in the 1850 census prior to her death in September 1850..

Eleanor Mitchel, a widow, and her son, John, settled in Augusta County, 1747. Their farm cornered John Tate and David Doak. John Mitchel died testate, 1771, leaving a wife Elizabeth and six children, Thomas; Robert, born 1734, surveyor 1774; John, died 1783 leaving his property to the children of Andrew Russell, Jr. and Elizabeth Turk, daughter of Thomas; James, born circa 1740, died 1806, was a Revolutionary Soldier who served in Captain Tate's Company with Major Hugh Fulton; Eleanor who married Mathew Willson, Sr. and Mary who married a Wright.

38. Andrew Steele Fulton (John2 , James 1) born circa 1756, was married in 1783 (31) to Elizabeth Hall, daughter of Edward and Eleanor Stuart (33) Hall and a sister to Sarah Hall Tate Fulton, who married Major Hugh Fulton. Andrew died between 1816 and 1819, but for some reason, his son did not file the administrator's bond until 1835. (34) Andrew was not an officer in the Revolution as some sources have reported. He was a private according to his Revolutionary War papers and did not become an officer until after the Revolutionary War while serving in the Augusta County militia.

The 1810 census indicates that there were two young females besides the mother living in this household. One was under 16 years of age and one was under 26 years of age. Three sons were listed in the 1810 census. The eldest son, John H., had already left home by 1810.
