Hi Shelly I can answer a few of the questions: Thomas Ivan and Mary Ellen "Mollie" CHEEK had 12 children, one died as an infant. the eleven others are: Clark Fulfer married Josephine Pace Autie Evelyn married James Phipps and Samuel Forsthye Harriet May married James Boss Phipps John F. "TI" Fulfer married Lillie Maude Hankins Lillie Maude married George Bradford Muse Collie "Coll" Fulfer married Connie Flora Bell "Ninnie" Teague Susanne "Annie" Fulfer married Clarence Almon Gent Seth Thomas Fulfer married Willie May Clayton Mary Ellen Fulfer married Arthur Wayne Dishman Stella Fulfer married Loy Finis Bingham Elick Calvin Fulfer married Ruby Inez Honea
Thomas Ivan's parents were Zachariah FUlfer and Mary Jane"Mollie" TEAGUE sister to my Susannah Teague Fulfer. Mary was married prior to Zack apparently to an ANDERS, I have two children listed George and Rebecca Jane Anders.
As for Mary Jane Teague, I believe she is Martha Jane Teague not Mary, she had a sister named Mary Polly Teague that married David McBride. You will find her listed as Mary other times as Martha. Im incline to go with Martha.
Now the confusing. Zachariah is the son of Jacob Fulfer and ?? Margaret Ingram. Zachariah brother Josiah DC list his mother as Margaret INgram. But now we have JAcob's brother Isaac married to a Drusilla TUlly and a Peggy 'Bettie' INgram.THe Ingrams fit into this equation somehow because we also have an Annna INgram that married Elijah Fulfer December 04, 1836 in Coles Co,, IL
Isaac Fulfer has been found under the surnames of Filfer and Fuller.
The first death that we (Effington County) have account of was that of Isaac Fulfer. He had found a bee-tree, and the hive was in a limb of the tree, to where he climbed, in order to cut off the limb.As he stood by the body of the tree and cut the large limb, it commenced to fall, and instead of breaking directly, it split, and that part uncut held it to the main tree, while the other part caught the body of Fulfer against the main body of the tree and pushed it up a considerable distance, with such a force that he was crushed to death almost instantly.When the outer part of the limb had come to the roots of the tree, the body of poor Fulfer was released and life wholly extinct, it fell and lodged upon the limb, and the friend of the dead man had some difficulty in getting the body down to the ground. -This account of the tragic death of Isaac Fulfer is found in Perrin's History of Effingham County, Illinois, 1883.
After Isaac's tragic death, Jacob Fulfer took Isaac's wife and Children to care for.
