Notes for WILLIAM HOUSTON FULKERSON:

    Once asked to write an account of his early life, Col. William H. Fulkerson supplied the following:

"I was born at Tazewell, East Tennessee, Sept. 9, 1834.  I grew up healthy and strong as most country boys do.  I worked in the fields and clerked in my Uncle William Houston's store.  I went to school when there was any.

"My first trip was from home to Nashville.  My uncle, Col. William Houston, for whom I clerked, was a member of the TN legislature.  We went all the way in a carriage.  There was no railroad then.  Uncle went on in the stage as he could not wait for us.  So my aunt, Miss Mary Graham, myself, our Negro coachman, and his sister (just two women, a boy, and two slaves), constituted our party.  We went through all those mountains unmolested.

"We spent the winter in Nashville.  Uncle William took me out to "The Hermitage" to see General Andrew Jackson, who I thought was the greatest man on earth.  But when I saw him with his hair standing up, I was scared.  Then when he ran his hand through my hair and told me to grow up and be a good man like my uncle, I felt at ease at once.

"When I was in my teens, I was sent out collecting.  The custom in those days was to credit a customer for a year, and then if he didn't pay, to take his note.  Some paid promptly and some had to be sent for.  Sending for a delinquent customer was called "putting a boy after him."  We went to all their houses and saw what they had.  Then we would buy a horse or cow and pay him the difference, if any, in cash and return his note.  If we could not collect, we would sell his note at a discount to anyone who would buy it.

"In this way, we got the farm stocked to all it would hold.  By time to "drive south" we would go to farmers and buy enough more to make a drove.  Some of the cattle came out of the canebrakes and were very wild.  They were driven to Virginia and sold.

"I bought hogs to drive to North and South Carolina.  We drove them five or six miles a day, then fed them all the corn they would eat by morning.  We drove them along the Nolichucky river, the road frequently crossing the river which gave the hogs plenty of water.  After we passed Ashville and got into the mountains, we fed the hogs chestnuts at 2 shillings (33 1/3 cents) per bushel.  Corn was selling at "2 shillings thripence" (37 1/2 cents).

"My next trip was with my uncle to Philadelphia and Baltimore.  We went by stage coach to Lynchburg, VA., hence to Richmond by canal boat, and thence to Philadelphia by the Camden and Amboy Railroad.  It was my first ride on a train and came near being my last one.  In those days the ends of the rails were not bolted together as they are today, but lapped beveled ends over each other and were spiked to the ties.  When the end of a rail became loose, it would sometimes run over the whell instead of under, up through the floor, the front seat, and out at the top of the car.  I had been sitting in the front seat and had just stepped into the aisle when a "snake's head" as they were called came up through the floor and seat I had been sitting in."

William Fulkerson, after working on his father's farm, clerking in this uncle's store, and attending the local school, Tazewell Academy, attended McMinn Academy.  While there he received an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.  His teacher in mathematics at West Point was Robert E. Lee, who was later to become the commanding general of the Southern Army during the Civil War.

After two years at West Point, he resigned to go west and take part in putting down the Mormon Rebellion.  The "Mormon War" was of short duration.  William Fulkerson loved the free life of the great outdoors and excitement of the West which was new and wild at that time.  He secured employment with Russell, Majors and Waddell, the famous freighting company at that time, driving a six-mule team in a wagon train between St. Joe and San Francisco.

Williams was a man of large estates in Tennessee, and Mrs. Williams had been most admirably trained for her position by her life at "Castle Roche" where her father had insisted on European etiquette and training forhis daughters.  - "Something of the Remarkable History of Hayslope" by Annie Kendrick Walker, Birmingham-Age Herald, Feb. 21, 1904, p. 18.

During the Civil War, the Williams' family lived in London, and as no remittances came from the South, Mr. Williams supported his family by writing for the London Times and by publishing two books, one on "Slavery" and one on "The American Citizen".  He also edited a paper in the interests of the Southern Confederacy, and it is said he was assisted in the enterprise by Henry Watterson. - "Something of the Remarkable History of Hayslope" by Annie Kendrick Walker, Birmingham-Age Herald, Feb. 21, 1904, p. 18.

P.G. Fulkerson's family, after living about six years in Tazewell moved to Mulberry Gap, and four years later they went to his farm in Lee Co., VA., but later returned to Tazewell.  His father was a success as a physician, and gave forty years of his life to the practice of medicine.  He was an old line Whig, and he and his wife were worthy members of the Presbyterian Church.  P.G. Fulkerson was educated at the academy school of Tazewell and finished at Danville, Mo.  At about twenty-two years of age, in 1861, he entered the Confederate State Army, from Missouri.  He was first in Col.

Notes for PETER GRAHAM FULKERSON:

Peter Graham Fulkerson was a prominent lawyer and at one time was Atty. Gen. of TN.  He also is the author of "Early Settlers of Claiborne Co." that regularly apears in editions of "Reflections", CCHS quarterly.

P.G. Fulkerson's family, after living about six years in Tazewell moved to Mulberry Gap, and four years later they went to his farm in Lee Co., VA., but later returned to Tazewell.  His father was a success as a physician, and gave forty years of his life to the practice of medicine.  He was an old line Whig, and he and his wife were worthy members of the Presbyterian Church.  P.G. Fulkerson was educated at the academy school of Tazewell and finished at Danville, Mo.  At about twenty-two years of age, in 1861, he entered the Confederate State Army, from Missouri.  He was first in Col. Elliott's regiment, then served one year in Gen. Sterling Price's unit.  He was captured at Danville, within the lines of the Federal Commander, and who had issued orders to treat all as spies who were found on the north side of the Missouri River.  After a variety of trouble, and through the influence of his uncle Richard C. Fulkerson, who was a Union citizen, he was released on a bond of $10,000.  He returned to Tazewell to find all his brothers away to escape the political prejudice existing at the time.  He went back to Missouri and farmed for two years where he began reading law.  He returned to TN and was admitted to the bar in 1868.  He was a member of the constitutional convention in 1870 and in 1873 he was appointed by Gov. John C. Brown to Attorney General.
