Fulkerson FamilyRobert Fulkerson, who operates the Fulkerson “American Homepage” is the source of much of the information on the ancestry of James Fulkerson (who married Mary VanHook).
Fullen– descendents of James Fullen
Gibson – Georgia Fleming’s genealogy site with much information on the descendents of James Gibson. (note that there is probably an error in connecting James Gibson, father of John Gibson (born 1762), as a son of the James Gibson (born 1687). It is believed a generation has been skipped in this lineage).

In Aebnit (Inabnit)– Ann Jobe Brown’s terrific site on the “In Aebnit” family lines (this surname has more spelling variations than I’ve ever seen!)
