Fuller: Deborah Fuller b. 1869 m. John Rowley and Anne Fuller b. 1704 m. Jonathan Rowley. Neither is named in John Fuller's will nor were any LRs found to indicate a daughter's portion turned over to her husband. However their children have Edward Fuller ancestry since both John and Jonathan were sons of Moses Rowley."
