|Robert Fullerton and Martha White Fullerton, c1850|
The photo above shows Robert and Martha Fullerton about the time of their marriage. They left for India in 1852 as Presbyterian missionaries. Robert died (apparently of cancer) in India before they could return to the U.S. Martha returned with their six surviving children and settled at 3307 Hamilton St. Her sister and brother-in-law lived a few blocks away at 3412 Baring St. were he ran the Mantua Female Seminary. Perhaps the most interesting new information posted there concerns George Fullerton's internment in Austrian and German prison of war camps for four years during WWI.
