  Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
July 20, 1922

WILLIAM F. FULTON

A message received by Mr. Fred Rood on Monday conveyed the news of the death of his brother-in-law, Wm. Fulton, at Alton, Illinois, where he was conducting a special sale—that being his line of business. The death must have been very sudden, for he was not known to have been sick, His brother Ed Fulton, else known here by older settlers, died just a week before, in Kansas. Mr. Fulton leaves a widow and three daughters, Blanche, Beulah and Nellie. All reside in Des Moines. Arrangements are being made for here in Clearfield Cemetery on today, Thursday, but the time is yet uncertain as we write on Tuesday. The family resided in this community till perhaps 25 years ago and have often visited here since that time.

OBITUARY ~ WILLIAM F. FULTON

William F. Fulton was born Nov. 28, 1853 near Ft. Wayne, Indiana and died July 16, 1922 at Alton, Ill., where he was following his regular work of conducting mercantile sales. In 1875 he moved with his father's family to a farm near Clearfield, Iowa. He was married to Miss Emma Rood in 1879, to which union three daughters were born.

The family moved from Clearfield to Panora, Iowa, where Mr. Fulton was engaged in a general merchandise business for a number of years, moving thence to Des Moines.

At the time of his death he resided in Des Moines, where he had lived for the past fifteen years. Surviving him are his widow, three daughters,—Mrs. Wm. Monoham, Mrs. E. A. Anderson, and Miss Blanch Fulton, all of Des Moines. Three sisters,—Mrs. Alex Myers of Emporia, Kansas; Mrs. Margaret Wells of Formosa, Kansas, and Mrs. Mary E. Jolly of Washington D. C; also two grandchildren, sons of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Anderson of Des Moines.

He was a member of the Presbyterian Church. His parents were among the first members of the Clearfield United Presbyterian Church. His brother Ed departed this life one week before him at Lincoln, Nebr. There is but a step between us and death.

The funeral services were held in the United Presb. church last Thursday afternoon, conducted by the pastor, Rev. S. Boyd Johnson. There was a large attendance of former friends and neighbors, and the floral offering were profuse and beautiful. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
