sionary Society of the Tolono Presbyterian church, and for years
has been greatly interested in the work of a cousin, Mary Ful-
lerton, in her missionary labors in India.

Xo one was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer the
despondent, sustain the weak, and to throw over the frailties of
our race the mantle of Christian charity.

For her noble woman-hood and numerous acts of kindness
to her daily or casual associates, she was universally beloved, and
the tears of the entire community were mingled together upon
the sad news of her untimely taking away. She died from an
operation at Presby. Hospital. Chicago, 111. She sleeps 'till the
"Lord's appearing" in beautiful Mount Flope Cemetery at Cham-
paign, 111.

Martha spent the best years of her life as a home mission-
ary at Council Bluffs, Iowa. Only those who have studied home
missionary history, can appreciate the sacrifice in leaving home
and friends, for a home on the frontier, as Iowa was in that
day. She returned broken in health, to die among her kindred,
and found kind hearts and loving hands to minister to her, even
as she found the same, when left on orphan at a tender age.

Of the earlier missionary life of my father I know little,
Came to Iowa as early as 1846, and commenced his ministry
at West Point, Lee Co. From 1849 to 1855, he had charge
of churches at Marion and Linn Grove, but in 1858, on account
of failing health, resigned from active church work. My mother
cheerfully and heroically, endured the hardships of pioneer life
which fell to her. and soon after coming to Marion, seeing her

husband's failing health, persuaded him to remove to a farm
near Linn Grove, on account of their two sons who were quite
young. Mere she took the greater share of the burdens of life
upon herself, to shield her husband, (an invalid from spinal dis-
ease), who gave his strength and time to the Master's work.
Their lives were beautifully blended; his was one of faith and
prayer, hers, in contrast, was not so much devoted to public
prayer, as to good works and deeds. Only three Sabbaths be-
fore his death, he assisted at ordinance of the Lord's supper,
and gave earnest exhortation, to be faithful to the Master and
his cause. While attending a meeting of Presbyter}, he con-
tracted a severe cold resulting in bronchial pneumonia. He real-
ized that his life's work was done and quietly fell asleep in
Jesus. My mother after a long illness from which she knew
she could not recover, passed away, rejoicing to "depart and be
with Christ, which is far better."

Robert Stewart Fnllerton was born in Bloomingburgh, Fay-
ette county, Ohio, November 23, 182 1.

His father, Thomas Fullerton, a Baltimore merchant, was
the third son of Humphrey Fullerton 3rd, who was born in
Pequea, Lancaster county, Pa., about 1748, and died near Green-
castle, Pa., in 1795. Humphrey Fullerton 3rd, owned large tracts
oi land in Pennsylvania. He was a surveyor and helped to sur-
vey the boundary line between Pennsylvania and New York.
The Fullertons were country gentry in the early days. Humphrey
3rd died leaving three sons and three daughters. His eldest son,
Humphrey 4th inherited the homestead. Humphrey 3rd's grand-
father (Humphrey 1st) fought at the battle of Boyne Water
and received a sword from King W r illiam of Orange, which was
handed down to each Humphrey Fullerton in the succeeding gen-
erations, but which was unfortunately lost in the vicissitudes
which later beset the family. Humphrey 1st sailed from Chester,
England, for America in 1723 or 1725, and stopped in Philadel-
phia for a time, but finally settled in Pequea, Lane county, Pa.
His son, Humphrey 2nd, was six years old when he came to
America, and lived until 1777 or 1778. The Fullertons were
Covenanters in the early days. It is supposed that the family
came originally from Corbie, in Picardy, France, and settled about
ten miles from Ayr, Scotland, about 1085. There were Fuller-
tons in Ireland as early as 1602. As the Fullertons were Cove-
nanters, it is likely they went over to Ireland when James II was
king of England. "Fullarton" is the name of the old estate near
Ayr. The name in Scotland was spelled "Fullarton", in Ireland,
"Fullerton." Whether the Fullertons of Ireland went there from

the Isle of Arran or from Ayrshire is not known certainly. On
the Isle of Arran is an old estate "Kilmichael" which was
granted to the Fullartons, hy Robert the Bruce, for services ren-
dered him when his life was endangerd.

Thomas Fullerton (the father of Rev. Rpbert Stewart Full-
erton) being born wealthy, was better educated than most young
gentlemen of his day. He had, however, no taste for business,
and did not succeed in it.

He married Elizabeth Stewart, March 3, 1801, in Green-
castle, Penn. Failing in his business in Baltimore, he went to
live on a farm in Ohio, given to his wife by her father. He had
no practical knowledge of farming, and was not fitted to live in
the woods. He opened an Academy in Bloomingburgh, Ohio,
hoping to further the educational opportunities of that part of
the country. As letters were not in demand in that day, in
Ohio, this effort of his, also, proved unsuccessful. An epidemic
of fever caused the death of his noble wife, and of several of his
children. He soon after moved farther west, where he married
a second time, and not long after, died.

Thomas Fullerton's second wife was a Mrs. Fitzgerald, a
widow (her maiden name some think was Williamson). His
children by his first marriage were as follows :

A few words may be said concerning Robert Stewart Fuller-
ton's mother — a very remarkable woman according to her ac-
quaintances. Elizabeth Stewart's father, Hugh Stuart of Ha-
gerstown, Md., left that place for Ohio in 1809, just as it was
coming into statehood. He owned large tracts of land which he
and Thomas Fullerton selected in 1804. ^Robert was a civil en-
gineer, and laid out the town of Washington C. H. and other
Ohio towns.) Hugh's eldest son, George Stuart, is said to have
changed the orthography of the name from "Stuart" to "Stew-
art" and was followed in this by other members of the family.
The father — Hugh Stuart — never liked this.

The old Stuart homestead in Maryland is still standing, and
is called Ringgold Manor. Elizabeth Stuart was educated in Ha-
gerstown, Md. The family records were destroyed, and hence
the period at which they emigrated to this country, remains

think twenty-seven, - r pastor of Foggs' Manor Presbyterian
Church, Pennsylvania,) in 1850, and they immediately afterwards
set sail for India as missionaries of the Presbyterian Board of
Foreign Missions. They lived chiefly while in India, at Agra and
Fatehgarh in the United Provinces of Agra and Ondh.

During the Indian Mutiny of 1857 they were for ten months
shut up in the Fort at Agra, which was fiercely besieged by the
mutineers. Their three little daughters, Anna, Dora, and Mary,
had been sent, with a friend, to the mountains (Landour, Hima-
laya Mts.) before the breaking out of the mutiny, so were not
with them in the Fort. A fourth daughter, Emma, was born in
the fort during the siege. The mutineers were finally repulsed
and the town remained in the hands of the British.

As all the missionaries stationed at Fatehgarh had been
killed, Mr. Fullerton, (who at that time was stationed at Agra,)
was asked, after the mutiny, to reconstruct the work at Fateh-
garh, Fnrrukhabad, (Fategarh is the European quarter, a
suburb of Fnrrukhabad City). Before it was safe for the women
and children to leave the Agra Fort, Mr. Fullerton went to the
Fnrrukhabad district, and spent many months in gathering to-
gether the scattered native Christians, — in order to re-organize
the mission work. During much of that time his whereabouts
were unknown to his family, nor did they even know that he was

His long service in India without furlough, (fifteen years,)
and the intense heat of the climate, broke his health. He was
preparing to return to America with his family, for recuperation,
when he died, October 4, 1865.

He was of a cheerful, sunny disposition, and greatly beloved,
not only by the people of the country, but by the English civ-
ilians and officials with whom he came in contact. The Mission
re-established by him at Fatehgarh and Furrukhabad, after the
Mutiny, has continued since that time ; and is at present one of
the largest mission stations of the American Presbyterian Board.

His widow and six children, (four daughters and two sons,)
returned to America after his death, and settled in Philadelphia,
where Mrs. Fullerton educated her children. Very bravely did
she take up this responsibility. Being a woman of culture and
refinement, as well as of strong character, she sought to give her
children every opportunity to fit themselves for the best things

in life. Having a very limited income, she taught for a time in
a private school in Philadelphia, in order to carry out her pur-
pose. * To her self-sacrifice and devotion her children owe all
that they have been enabled to accomplish in their lives.

She was educated in Philadelphia Girls' High School ,and Nor-

Philadelphia, before her marriage, on March 15, 1875 to Leonard
Waldo, who was born May 4, 1853 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was
graduated Harvard D. Sc. 1879; Yale A. M., 1880. Leonard
Waldo is a son of Frederic Augustus Waldo, M. D., late of Cin-

of the Waldenses,) and his second wife, Frances Leonard.
Leonard Waldo was, for some years, attached to the staff of the
astronomical observatory at Cambridge, Mass., in charge of the
railroad time service. In 1874 he was a member of the expedi-
tion, which observed, in New Zealand, the transit of Venus, and
in 1878 he went to Forth Worth, Texas, in a similar capacity, to
observe the total eclipse of the sun. After leaving the service
of Harvard University, Mr. Waldo was for several years con-
nected with the astronomical Observatory of Yale University.

After the death of his first wife, (Dora Fullerton,) he mar-
ried Ada Louise Purdy, of New York, and has an office in New
York, in which he practices as consulting engineer.

Mary Fullerton was born in Agra, India, Jan. 26, 1856.
When her mother took the children of the family back to Amer-
ica (after the death of their father,) Mary was nearly ten years
of age.

Her mother settled in W. Philadelphia, Pa., where with her
sisters Mary attended a Young Ladies' Academy conducted by
her uncle, the Riev. John Moore, (a brother-in-law of her
mother's). Upon his removal from the city, her education was
continued in the Public Schools, and she was graduated from the
Girls' High and Normal Schools of Phila. when seventeen years
of age. After that, while teaching in a private school, she car-
ried on her studies in music, the languages and sciences, under
private tutors. On the 25th of Jan. 1877, she sailed for India
in company with Mrs. J. L. Scott, to engage in the work of teach-
ing in the Woodstock School, in Landour, on the Himalaya Mts.,
a school connected with the Foreign Missionary Board of the
Presbyterian Church in America. Aften ten years of work in
this school, she returned on furlough to America. Family cir-
cumstances made it necessary to resign her connection with the
Mission and kept her in the home land, until the death of her
mother, in 1895, made it possible for her to return to India.
She was stationed, for two years after her return, in Jhansi,
United Provinces, and worked among the women and girls of
