Possible Clue to Identity of Wife

The identity of the wife of this William Fulton is apparently undetermined.

The following Chalkley's record refers to a William Fulton, "Bigham's son-in-law". This may provide a clue for further research.

  • Page 244.- (undated, abt. 1788-89) -List of book debts due Thomas Stuart--By John Allison (Middle River); William Fulton (Bigham's son-in-law).

A related record appears to tie-into this. William Fulton, father John Fulton lived near "North Mountain" in Augusta County, which is near "Muddy Creek", which sits at the foot of North Mountain (according to some Chalkley's records), and there just happened to have been a George Bigham that lived on Muddy Creek, per the following:

  • Page 472.--3d June, 1762. George Bigham, late of Augusta, to Robert Erwin, yeoman, £32.6, 251 acres on Muddy Creek of Shanando. Teste: Andrew Cowan, Robert Hamilton and James ( ) McNabb. Acknowledged, 17th August, 1762. Delivered: Francis Erwin, 9th July, 1773.
