    • OBITUARY

      H. J. Fulton was born in Renselaerville, Albany County, New York, Sept 22, 1845, and died in King City Township, McPherson County, Kansas, March 26, 1891.

      When about five years of age, his parents removed to Cazenoria, Madison co., in the same state whree his father was pastor of the Baptist church, some eight and a half years. From there affter stopping a short time in Ohio, he removed with his parents to independence, Iowa, where his young manhood days were spent.

      Here in 1870, he married Miss Frankie (Frances D.) Annable of Saratoga, New York.

      At this time he was clerk in a large agricultural establishment, and soon afterward became a partner, locating at Fort Dodge, whree he had charge of one branch of the business. he showed himself an energetic businessman and for a time was very prosperous, but reverses came--the firm failed. About this time the dread disease, consumtion, from which he died, began to develope itself. His wife also was a sufferer from the same disease, and they left Fort Doge hoping the health of both might be benefited.

      In Oct. 1874, his wife died at the home of his parents in Belvidere, IL, leaving two children. The younges an infant son soon follwed his mother o the heavenly land. The older--a daughter, has since lived with her grandmother in Iowa. In 1876, he married Mrs. Helen clark of Marengo, IL who with their daughter, Jennie now mourns his loss.

      In 1884, they came to Kansas and though the climate imay have proved beneficial, it did n not bring health. None can know how much he has suffered from physical weakness, to which he was determined not to yield. He was energetic beyond his strength, quite forgetting himself in his eagerness to carry out his cherished plans. He was fond of reading and kept himself well posted with regard to all the current topics of the day.

      Kind hearted and generous to a fault, he was ever ready to help those in trouble and in need. The morning he died, he was planning to visit a sick neighbor, for whose comfort both himself and wife had very tenderly cared.

      Death came very suddenly, and unexpectedly. he knew he was dying but seemed to have no fear. Friends who associated intimately with him furing his last days, felle that he was not unprepared to meet his God. Many bear testimoney to a marked change in his life and felt that he was ready publicly to confess Christ.

      On Saturday, March 28, he was laid away to rest. Rev. C. H. Wareham of Marion, an intimate friend of the family, conducting the funeral service.
