Descendants of Tryon Fuller

South Carolina to Texas

    Tryon Fuller was born between 1770 and 1780 in North or South Carolina. He died in 1846 in Talladega County, Alabama. His will was signed on Sept 30 and probated in December of 1846, so he probably died in October or November. His wife apparently died before him but after 1840. Her name is unknown.
    The 1810 census of Pendleton Ditrict, South Carolina includes one Tryon Fuller. He and one female were between 26 and 45 years old. The household also included two boys and a girl under the age of 10.
    By 24 Feb. 1824, Tryon Fuller was in Shelby County, Alabama where he bought a slave from Thomas Harvey and wife Cynthia.
    The 1830 census of Shelby County, Alabama show Tryon Fuller with
males <5	5-10	10-15	50-60	    females	<5	10-15	15-20	40-50
	1	  3	  1	   1			 2	  1	   1	   1
    By the 1840 census, the family was in Talladega County, Alabama. The only male is 60-70 with two females 10-15 and 1 aged 40-50 and nine slaves.
    The executor of the will of Tryon Fuller named Fuller's heirs in 1849, probably in birth order, as Benjamin, Daniel, Lary Frieze, E. M., Nancy wife of William Ray, Sarah, William S., Priscilla wife of Jackson Foreman, Cibrate A. and Mary wife of Isaac Lawler.
