From the website Fulkerson.com
Richard FULKERSON.....29 Jan 1789 - 7 Oct 1821, served 6 weeks during War of 1812 (18 Sep-30 Oct 1812) and was discharged at Buserton, TN. He married Grace "Grissie" COWSERT (also variously spelled COUSERT or COUSERY) in KY. Grace was one of 8 children of Thomas and Agnes COWSERT, who emigrated from County Armagh, Ireland in 1790, settled on a 100-acre farm on Turkey Creek in Chester Co., SC. After Thomas died in 1797, Agnes moved her family to Livingston Co., KY. Grace was still in school when her father died, per his will, and probably just past her teens when she married. Richard and Grace moved to Illinois by 1815, finally settling in Pope County. Richard died at the young age of 32, but had already established the rather substantial Pope County branch of the Fulkerson family.
Grace remarried to William BROWN of Pittsburg, PA, in Pope Co. on 2 Aug 1827. He reportedly ran a keelboat on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. With William, she had 7 children: Mary, Margaret, William, Sarah, Lucinda, Henry, and Charles. The descendants of Richard FULKERSON and Grace COWSERT are listed on the Illinois Fulkersons page.
