About John F Fulkerson

Served in the Revolutionary War

National Archives Pension # W8836

From the "History of Sonoma County"

John Fulkerson was one of the pioneers of the State of Kentucky, settling thre from the State of Pennsylvania, very soon after the close of the Revolutionary war. Only those fully informed as to the history of Kentucky have even a slight conception of the trials, privations and extreme danger of life in the frontier of that day. It was the "dark and bloody ground" consecrated and immortalized by the heroic deeds of valor in its defense and against the red men by Boone, harrod, Rogers, Clarke and their compatriots. The Fulkerson family, with great difficulty in extreme danger, found their first refuge in the stockade at Lexington. Even while passing through the gate admitting them, one horse was shot down out of a team by the Indians. Fulkird Fulkerson (John Fulkerson's son) was then eleven years of age. John Fulkerson lived to see the then wilderness converted into a land filled with happy homes, luxuriant with wealth, and the last of the red men disappear. He died at the age of near 100 years, leaving a long line of ancestry to revere the memory of a noble, heroic ancestor.
