    AUGUSTA COUNTY, VIRGINIA FULTONS:  Due to an early Augusta County fire that destroyed some of the early records, other sources and affidavits have had to be used to trace the families. Since I cannot firmly document the connection between the different Fulton families in Augusta County I have presented them separately so you could draw your own conclusions.  If you have additional documentation that confirms or contradicts what I have published here, please contact me at:

    The Fultons of Virginia have their own mailing list. To see how to subscribe, unsubscribe and participate please read the FULTONVA-L

The Hope book speculates on a story  handed down through his mother that the earliest Fulton in Lisburn was either William "of Kilkenny" or his family.

This work would not be complete without a tribute to the late Katherine Bushman who did extensive work in researching the Fulton Family in Augusta County, Virginia for me and my correspondents. I also would like to thank Virginia Kane, George Fulton, Barbara Fahey, Tillie Gore,  Edward Fulton Howard, and all others who have sent me their personal data to add to what we have. If I have omitted anyone, my apologies as it took the contributions of  many people to make this work complete.   Please be patient if you sent material that hasn't been posted yet.  It will surface again as I wade through my files and it will get posted.We have Trevor Fulton to thank for the extensive work he has done on the Fulton Family in Ireland.  This adds an entire new dimension to these pages.I am also indebted to George Fulton for his contributions on his branch of our Fulton Family known as the Missouri Fultons.The Revolutionary War records were obtained from the National Archives.

The Deeds, Land Records and Wills were obtained from the Augusta County, Virginia Clerk's Office with the help of Mrs. Bushman. Also consulted was: The Fulton, Hayden, Warner Ancestry in America, 1923, compiled by Clarence Ettienne Leonard. Tobias A. Wright, Printer and Publisher, 150 Bleecker Street, New York.
