Biographical data
Name: Fullarton, William James  
Born: 1832
Died: 3 Aug. 1885
 
Notes:
Gaige gives birth between 4-08-1831 and 3-08-1832. Gaige gives 'Fullerton, William James'. Hilbert also gives 'W.J. Fullerton'. Ozbase gives 'Fullarton, William James,' as do all the primary sources I have. I therefore suspect that Gaige is wrong in this case.
