I see from your posting that you descended from William, the oldest child of Josiah and Eliza. I descended from the youngest, James Fulton. Since responding to Kenneth Alexander in 2002 we have learned a little. Ezekiel was the father of Josiah and came from Mecklenburg Co, NC. He came through Wayne Co, TN and on to Cerro Gordo. There were so many Ezekiels in Mecklenburg Co that we have not been able to determine who his father was. But it was good to find out the path the family took from Ireland. I do not know a lot but will be glad to share what I have.
Thanks for tracking me down. I live in TN also close to Knoxville.
