The Descendants of JOSEPH FULMER/FULLMER: A Genealogical and Pictorial History

Fulmer's View
Near Eagles Mere, PA
The location is at Keystone Mountain Park, off Edkin Hill Road, directly south of Ogdonia and southwest of the town of Eagles Mere in Shrewsbury Township. This was the house where William and MaryAnne Lisson Fulmer went to housekeeping. The date of the photo is unknown, but it was known by Fulmer's View at least until MaryAnne died. The farm was subsequently turned into a "dude" ranch for awhile; Annie thinks it was called something like Skyview. The photo is contributed by Annie Pursell.

Generation No. 2

2. CATHERINE FULMER was born 1818. She married JOHN PETER MYERS some time before 1850. You can learn more about this family at Descendants of Henry Myers et al.

The children of CATHERINE FULMER and JOHN PETER MYERS were:

i.MARY E. MYERS, b. 1852.

ii.SARAH C. MYERS, b. 1854.

iii.EMILY E., b. 1856.

Catherine died between the years of 1856 and 1859 as John Peter Myers remarried Nancy Winslow and was listed so in the 1860 Federal Census for Cherry Township in Sullivan County, PA. They had a son, Thomas Myers age 6 months What is known also is that Mary E. married Joseph Bartley, Sarah C. married Uriah Keller, and Emily E. married Roscoe Dieffenbach. It look like that all ended up in California.

Editor's Note: In October, 2004, Alice B. Chrzanowski reported to this site that the information oriignally presented above about Catherine Fulmer marrying Obed Gansell ("Gansel") was incorrect. According to Alice, in 2003, she went to Kansas to reserach the Gansel family that left Dushore in 1870 and went out to Kansas. Alice claims that Obed married Catherien Swank, and Catherine Fulmer actually married John Peter Myers. John and Catherine had three children, all back in the Sullivan County area. All the information that Alice collected in Kansas (about one hundred pages of the Gansel history) has now been compiled and is presented on this site at Descendants of Obed Gansell. Only one daughter of Obed Gansel stayed in Dushore and she married into the Kinsley family. We believe that Alice has sufficiently verified this claim, and we have changed the history above accordingly.

HENRY FULLMER was born August 12, 1819 in PA, and died July 25, 1899 in Dushore, PA. He married LYDIA SHAFFER.

** Editor's Note: The Muncy Valley Hospital is actually located in Muncy, Lycoming County, PA, about 20 miles southwest of the town of Muncy Valley, which is located in Sullivan County. You will note repeated references to this hospital in this history. In early 2008, the hospital was still in operation, as part of the Susquehanna Care hospital network. Here are two brief vignettes that tell us something about the founding of Muncy and the early history of this hospital :

The History of Muncy

About 1787, four brothers, Silas, William, Benjamin, and Isaac McCarty, came here from Bucks county. They were of Quaker extraction. William and Benjamin bought 300 acres known as the "John Brady farm," and divided it William taking the portion between what is now West Water street and Muncy creek, and Benjamin that portion between West Water street and the southern boundary. Main street now represents what was then the boundary between the Brady farm and Isaac Walton's.
In 1797, ten years after coming to Muncy, Benjamin McCarty conceived the idea of starting a town, and be commenced laying out lots on what is now Main street, and sold them to different parties. His example was followed by his brother William, north of Water street, and by Isaac Walton. The town was named Pennsborough in honor of the Penns.
The town grew slowly and was nothing but a village for many years. More than a quarter of a century passed before an act of incorporation was applied for. Finally, by act approved March 15, 1826, it was incorporated as a borough.
On January 19, 1827, with a population of less than 600, the name was changed from Pennsborough to Muncy. This was done because many persons thought it was "too flat and long," and the new name would be more in accordance with the historical associations of the place, and serve to perpetuate the name of the tribe that first dwelt there, a tribe of Delaware Indians, named Monseys.
Today, Muncy PA has nearly 2700 residence. The friendly citizens are proud of its rich heritage and look forward to its dynamic future.

MUNCY HOSPITAL ADMITTED 588 IN ITS OPENING YEAR

Muncy, Sept. 19. -- Yesterday marked the beginning of the second year of the work of Muncy Valley Private hospital, after a very successful initial year. The number of cases handled was 588, of which 382 were surgical and twenty-eight obstetrical. The institution is the outcome of a movement started early last year, at a meeting of the Muncy Valley Medical association, composed of physicians who practice in the valley. Such a hospital had often been talked of before but this time the matter was immediately taken up and pushed until the hospital was established.
Twelve doctors belonging to the association each subscribed $1,000 to the project and all later added to this amount, some of them to the extent of another $500. A number of contributors were made by public spirited citizens of the valley until the total cost of the institution, $30,000 was raised.. Modern Institution.
The hospital is well equipped and is modern in every respect. There is an operating room as fine as any in the county, for up-to-date surgery; an x-ray apparatus capable of taking care of all radiographic and fluoroscopic work and an ambulance that is almost a miniature hospital on wheels. The ambulance was purchased by the citizens of the valley, the money being raised by public subscription. It is equipped with hot and cold water, a pulmotor, comfortable stretchers and a first aid outfit, as well as many other articles for the comfort and safety of the ill or injured. The hospital is equipped with twenty beds, most of them two to a room, with a few rooms having three or four. There is a well furnished nursery with nine bassinets and cribs for infants and small children. Everything that will add to the comfort of the patients has been secured as a part of the equipment.
An adequate staff
The staff of the hospital consists of the twelve physicians who are members of the corporation, a superintendent, Miss Esther Pike; an assistant superintendent, Miss Grace Klinefelter; a night supervisor, three student nurses, Miss Moon, a bookkeeper and five miscellaneous employees. The physicians are: Joseph W. Albright, Harold F. Baker, H. K. Davis, Irwin T. Gilmore, J. Frank Gordner, Daniel E. Kiess, William L. King, D. M. Niple, G. Irvin Poust, Wilbur E. Turner, Charles C. Voorhees and T. Kenneth Wood **. All are members of the board of directors of the institution. There is also a hospital auxiliary of nearly three hundred members which has been doing excellent work. It includes residents of Muncy, Montgomery, Hughesville, Picture Rocks, Clarkstown, Huntersville, Muncy Valley, Sonestown, Nordmont, Unityville, Turbotville, Philadelphia, Williamsport, Sydney, N. Y., Canton, O., Eagles Mere and Pennsdale.
August Busiest Month
A study of the books of the hospital shows that the last month was the busiest in the year, with sixty-four patients. The next was April, with fifty-nine. October of last year was the poorest month with only twelve persons treated. This bids fair to be a record breaker, as thirty-two patients have already been admitted. The hospital has been paying its own way during its year of existence and it is expected that it will continue to do so.

** Editor's Note: In June 2008, Marianne "Annie" Fulmer Pursell sent us the following message: Just a quick note on the update about the Muncy Valley Hospital that you've inserted - one of the founders of the hospital is Wilbur E Turner. His daughter, Jeanne Turner (my mother) is pictured with my dad, Paul Fulmer, further down your page. Dr. Voorhees is related on the Fulmer side, and Dr. Wood is related to me on the Turner side. It's a small world, indeed.

The Old Fulmer School
Cherry Township, PA

The old Fulmer schoolhouse was located in Cherry Township on the dirt road which turns to the left just beyond Dr. T. J. Saul's home as you leave Dushore. This 1907 photo shows the following students: In the front row, from left, Charles Bunning, Charles Kinsley (deceased), William Hunsinger (deceased). Second row. Anita Kinsley, Clara Sayman, Bertha Hunsinger (deceased), Morris Bahr (deceased), Clyde Hunsinger (deceased), Edward Bunning, Seth Rumsey (deceased), Robert Kast and William Bahr (deceased). Third row, Harry Hunsinger (deceased), Mary Devlin, Bernard McManus, Anna Bunning, Lena Hunsinger (deceased). Two sitting on a chair are William Kast and William Devlin (deceased). The teacher in the doorway is Anna Dunn. The photo was submitted to The Sullivan Review by Mrs. Charles Raub, who is Clara Sayman in the photo.
Note: The Devlin children in the picture are children of James Devlin. His brother, Thomas Devlin, raised another of the large Devlin families in the area. One of the children of Thomas Devlin was Mary Dolores (Devlin) Oliver.

Contributed by Chris Kelley from a 1968 Sullivan Review article. According to Chris, Harold and Anna (White) Fulmer owned the land until it was sold to the Fitzgeralds in the 1950's or early 1960's. Now it's a dilapidated old shack.

The following obituary, published in the Williamsport Sun-Gazette on Wednesday, May 14, 2008 on page B-7, created some confusion earlier in 2008.

Born February 14, 1961, in Williamsport, he was a son of Doris M. and the late Mervin L. Phillips.

Surviving, in addition to his mother, are three daughters, Megan Phillips of Montgomery, Angela Phillips of South Williamsport and Kelsea Phillips of Newberry; three brothers, Paul (Betty) Phillips of Hughesville, Keith and Danny Phillips both of Muncy; a sister, Joyce (John) Puterbaugh of Unityville; a grandson, Isaac Phillips; and his companion of 12 years, Darlene Dolley.
