"SAMUEL4 FULLER (John3, Samuel2, Edward1), born about 1682; died at Hartford, Conn., Feb. 12, 1757; married at New London, Conn., June 11, 1703, Naomi ("Nem," or "Em") Rowley of Machamoodus (the Indian name for East Haddam), born about 1685; died probably in 1764; daughter of Moses, Jr., and Mary Rowley of Falmouth (Succonesset) and East Haddam.
Samuel Fuller settled in Colchester about 1702; was a proprietor, corporal, tithing man, waywarden, collector, lister and ensign. These are the services of an active and intelligent man, respected by his fellow citizens. For an account of this death at Hartford, see Connecticut Quarterly, vol. 4, p. 183. For the occasion of his being at Hartford, see the records and files of the Hartford County Court. His estate was administered by Nathan Sawyer, March 12, 1757 (Hartford and Colchester Probate files at Hartford). Inventory, £443, 5 s. His son Abner Fuller, b. Dec. 10, 1724, is not mentioned in the settlement of the estate. He probably died young. Deeds on record at Colchester show conveyances of land from Samuel Fuller to Aaron Fuller, March 1748/9; to Samuel Fuller, Jr., to Moses Fuller, Nov. 1, 1753 (Colchester Deeds, vol. 6, pp. 22, 178, 197). The three grantees are called sons of the grantor in all three of these deeds. Since there is no conveyance ro Abner Fuller, the inference is that he was not living.
i. John5, b. Nov. 3, 2704; m. Penelope -------.
ii. Samuel, b. Aug. 31, 1706; m. Patience. -------.
iii. Moses, b. Jan. 30, 1708/9; m. Rebecca Brown.
iv. Aaron, b. June 3, 1711; m. Ruth Sawyer; removed to Cornwall, Conn.
v. Mehitabel, b. Aug. 6, 1716; m. Nov. 8, 1737, John Chamberlain, Jr., of Hebron, Conn.
vi. Matthew, b. -------. His existence seems to be proved by a deed (Colchester Deeds, vol. 6, p. 137), dated Jan. 2, 1751/2, in which "Samuel Fuller and Em Fuller his wife convey to John Day Jr. for £1500 in bills of credit fifty acres of land my son Matthew now lives on." Possibly "son" here means "son-in-law." In that case a daughter of Samuel Fuller and Naomi married a Matthew Fuller. Jonathan Fuller of Colchester in his will names a son Matthew and his wife Bathsheba. The latter may have been a daughter, otherwise unknown, of Samuel and Naomi Fuller.
vii. Mercy, b. June 27, 1718.
viii. Mary, b. Feb. 28, 1721; m. March 17, 1748, Thomas Millard, alias Miller of East Haddam.
ix. Desire, b. Feb. 3, 1723; m. May 23, 1745, Nathan Sawyer.
x. Abner, b. Dec. 10, 1724; d. June, 1727. The date of his death was due to the late Newton Fuller, of New London, Conn. Where he obtained the date is unknown. It does not appear on the Colchester record as now constituted. Others have stated that another child, Naomi, was born in June, 1727.".
