David James Fulbright

 
 

Born: 12 Aug 1855, Olivers Crossroads, Catawba County, NC
Died: 09 Oct 1918, Shiloh Township, Iredell County, NC

 
 

David James Fulbright was born 12 Aug 1855 to Mahala Catherine Miller when she was 24 years old and still single.

 

It is not certain who David James Fulbright's father was, although his mother Mahala said that it was David F. Fulbright, her first cousin.  Mahala knew that her Uncle William and Aunt Regina were well situated and she claimed David F. was the father.  At the time of conception, David F. seemed too young to father the child (about age 14 or 15), but he was named in the Bastardy Bond and David James Fulbright was bound to his grandfather, Jacob Miller, by the Courts.  Other sources say that his father was Randolph Johnson.     

 

[David F. Fulbright was born on 2-18-1840 and was killed in the Civil War at the Battle of Chancellorsville, on 5-3-1863]

 

David James Fulbright became very prosperous, owning a mercantile store with a post office.  He was a Justice of the Peace and even taught school briefly.

David and Sarah's daughter, Sallie Fulbright, drowned in an accident at the Catawba River which also claimed the life of Eliza Jane Goble.  These girls were first cousins.  Sarah Fulp Fulbright was a mid-wife and dresser of the dead.  She lovingly had to lay out both girls for their funerals.  Sallie Fulbright & Eliza Jane Goble were buried at Sharon Lutheran Church in Iredell County, NC. Sarah was 18 years old at the time of her death.

The 1900 Census shows David James & Sarah still living in the Shiloh Township of Iredell County, NC.  David's age was 54 and Sarah was 52.  There were seven children living with the family: Odie (Odie Jane, age 18), Nora (Nora Estelle, age 16), Garland (Garland Rudolph, age 13), Walter (Walter Brian, age 11), Benjamin (appears to be James Vanderford "Benjamin", age 8), Noell (Noel Baxter, age 6) and Zeva C. (age 3).

 

Most interesting is the fact that David James & Sarah had two additional sons since the 1900 Census (Noel and Zeva), yet the 1910 Census states that she only had 11 children with one deceased (Sallie Clara).  It appears that in actuality that David James & Sarah would have had 12 children.

 

Daughter Arabella "Oravell" Fulbright Moose was living nearby with her 5 children (Ruthie Mae Moose, Reba Sarah Moose, Eula Isabell Moose, Mary Inez Moose and William Colan Moose).  Arabella's husband, Lonnie Moose, had died 30 Jul 1909.  Arabella married John Baxter Bostian on 23 Feb 1914.
