J. W. FULLER, merchant, and proprietor of Fuller's Hall, was born in Sullivan County, New York, July 22, 1852, son of J. W. FULLER. When ten years of age he moved to Cleveland, Ohio, thence to Clarke County, Iowa, thence to Ringgold County. In 1882 he started in the grain business, and was burned out January 22, 1884. In March of the same year he built the grain elevator at Kellerton, 52 x 52, and thirty-three feet from peak to basement. Two years later he sold out and engaged in a general merchandise, which he has since continued. He carries a large stock of dry goods, boots and shoes, hats and caps, notions, hardware and groceries. Fuller's Hall is 40 x 60, with a seating capacity of 600 to 800. The building was erected in 1886. The first story is used as a sales-room.

In 1880 Mr. FULLER married to Jane TEDROW, daughter of C. (sic) TEDROW, a prominent pioneer of Ringgold County. They have three children - Mary, Nellie and Ida.

Mr. FULLER is an enterprising, thorough-going citizen.
