I am trying to verify the parents of Elizabeth Fullerton Williams born in DuBois PA 7/28/1889 died Wilkes Barre PA 8/10/1959. Her husband was George Washington Williams and they had 6 children.  I was told her parents were John & Claire/Clare Fullerton and that she had 2 siblings (John and Dorothy Fullerton Walker). I am having great difficulty tracking down information on the Fullertons.  Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, but I do not think Lizzie Mable Fullerton is my grandmother.  I am 100% sure her name was Elizabeth (and that's what she went by) and that her parents where John and Claire/Clare.  Also, I am 100% sure her birthday was 7/28/1889.
Ok, I’ll keep digging!
Hello.  I am wondering if you were able to do any additional research on this query?  I have still not been able to find out anything about Elizabeth Fullerton Williams.

Maybe this...

Pennsylvania Death Certificates.. date of birth and death match. Father: John Fullertown; mother: Claire. The informant was Mrs. Richmond T. Bowen of Wilkes-Barre. Buried at Hollenback Cemetery in W-B. Elizabeth died st home at 102 George Ave. She had been living in W-B for 55 years. She was a widow and a homemaker.

Thanks.  Mrs. Bowen was my Aunt Florence (my Mother's sister) and I knew her well.  My mother gave me the names of John and Claire Fullerton but I have not been able to find any information on them at all.  Neither can I find information about my grandmother (their daughter, Elizabeth).  I think Fullertown was likely a mis-spelling but I will check into it.  Thanks again.

Welcome to our (your) Wikitree community. I can’t answer your question right now  because I’m beat from working in 80-87 degree heat at the nursery (the plants take it so much better than I do) and then entertaining out of town family tonight. If someone doesn’t do some digging for you before tomorrow morning, I’ll take a stab at it.

Again, welcome!
