DEATH OF MRS. G. W. FULLIAM
Last evening at 7:25 o’clock Mrs. G. W. Fulliam peacefully expired at her home, No. 291 East Front street, the immediate cause of her demise being paralysis of the brain. The news of her sudden death was a painful surprise to the friends of the family who were not aware of Mrs. Fulliam’s illness. Indeed, she was in the possession of robust health until a few brief hours before passing away. She became so seriously ill yesterday morning as to alarm the family and the most skillful medical attendance was hastily summoned. Her son, Dr. E. B. Fulliam, did all an affectionate son could do to relieve her but she was beyond human help.
Mrs. Fulliam was born in Beaver county, Penn., March 24, 1836. She came to Muscatine with her parents when only nine years of age. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Vanatta and Dec. 15th, 1854, she was united in marriage to Dr. G. W. Fulliam. This union was blessed with six children who with their father grievously mourn her death. The children are Dr. E. B., William of Omaha, Stonewall, Dr. Jeff. D., Misses Alberta Belle, and Etta. Mrs. Martin Bartlett, of this city and Mrs. F. F. Bond of Philadelphia, step-children of the deceased, also survive.
The deceased was a faithful and consistent member of the Congregational church.
The appointment of the funeral will wait upon a dispatch from two daughters, Miss Alberta Belle and Mrs. Bartlett, who are sojourning in Philadelphia.
