I am trying to locate my paternal grandfather, Arthur A. FULTON. In the 1920 census, and
Arthur A. FULTON, age 41 is shown living with his wife, Bertha, age 42 in Fort Dodge City,
Webster Co., IA (the township looks to be Wahkousa, but is difficult to read). This
information came freom ED 244, sheet #16 B, line 96. It states that Arthur is a laborer
at a gypsum mill. His age, along with his place of birth and those of his parents fit
information that I have on my grandfather. My Arthur was married to my grandmother Edna
(Thomas) Fulton, who died in 1908 when my father, Donald Arthur FULTON, was 20 months old.
Arthur left Donald in the care of Edna's parents, Francis M. THOMAS, M.D. and
Cornelia (Peck) THOMAS in Leonardville, KS. According to a petition for guardianship of
Donald in 1919, Arthur had remarried, moved away, and had no further contact with his son.
Any information about this family would be most appreciated. I keep coming up blank.
Jane (Fulton) Taylor
