Adam Fulenwider1

M, b. 1 February 1839, d. 16 September 1905
     With his mop of hair, black and very curly, gray blue eyes that occasionally twinkled with fun and mischief, and dressed in a suit of broadcloth, Adam Fulenwider, just arrived from Salisbury, NorthCarolna, captured the heart of Ann Miller, whoseancestors, nearly fifty years before, had also moved from North Carolina to Union County Illinois. Ann told her children, years later, that when she first met their father, she thought him the handsomest man she had ever seen. Adam possessed a quick mind, keen perception and more than average intelligence, and had a fair education. He played the violin beautifully and in his younger days, sometimes playd for neighborhood dances.
When the Civil War ended, Adam bought a small farm inthe Kornthal District three miles southwest of Jonesobor, and moved his family into theirnewhome. Here for ten years the family livedhappilyand were doing wel and becoming prosperous when Adam's healthfailed and for fouryears Ann, in addition to nursing a sick husband and caring for four smallchildren, had to take over the management of the farm and support the family. After this serious illness, although aDam was able to be up andlook after his farm, he was a semi-invalid during the remainder ofhislife. A frail, thinman, rarely weighing over 135 pounds and sightly stooped, he was a bundle of nerves, wiry, and very quick inhismovements, and worked hard asw long as his energies lasted. Adam liked to hunt and fish, and oftentalked of going fishingin the Yadkin River near his boyhood home a few miles from Salisbury. Several times duriing the summer on hot afternoons, he would stophis plowingand say, "Ma, fix me up a box of grub. Me and the boys are goin' fishing." Ann, who took life moreserously, sometimes objectedto her husband's boyish trait of dropping work to go fishing and asked whenthe plowing wouldgetdone. For answer, Adam would grin sheepishly and go off to dig worms, knowing she'de have a box of grub ready by the time he had the horses fed and watered and his fishingtackle gath3ered up. But in spite of Adam's fishing sprres, the wfarm work somehow gotdone.
In contrastto her husband, Ann was a large woman, strong and more practical and methodical in managing the farm work. Busy as she was with her large family she found time to help with the farm work and to lend a helping hand to sick neighbors, who, formilesaround, oftensentfor her in the middle of thenight and, eventhough she had sickness in her ownfamily, she always went to care for the sick and comfort the bereaved. Deeply religious, she insisted on the family attendingservices at St John's, six miles away, when circumstances would permit. All the family were members of this church. At last, when she was called home, her pastor, Rev T Earnhart, who preached at her funeral, said of her, "She hath done what shecould."
In 1879-80 Adam sold his farm near Kornthal and bought the Isaac Brown place, less than two miles to the south. The original deed, signed August 1 1838, by President VanBuren, is inthe possession of gthe Fulenwider famioy and Amanda holds a photostat copy ofthe original deed. The Fulenwiders moved to theirnew home in late August. The eight children who grew up together were a lively brood and had a happy childhood onthe farm. Their home was a favorite gathering place for young people.
All the Fulenwider children began to sing as soon as they could talk, and often on Sunday evenings company came in and they had a sing, usually church hymns. Doll sang bass, Juke tenor, Alice alto,and Emma sang soprano, with the liddle Iders joining in. Phoebe and Maggie had lovely soprano voices. After they got the organ, one ofthosehigh-topped creations, called the parlor organ, one played the organ and their father played the air onthe violin. Someone played the banjo, Will Clemens the concertina,and George ratled the bones, keeping timewiththe music. Sometimes the children could coax their father to play some of the old dance tunes -- Fisher's Hornpipe, Irish WAsher Woman, Devil's Hornpipe, and Arkansas Traveler. They loved to watch his long, bony finguers dance over the strings of thevioin andm,even though their toes may have tingled to tap out the lively music,they never learned to dance because their mother objected to tghis form of amusement. Andnever was there a deck of cardsinthe house -- unless sneaked in-- which is doubtful. Often onlong winter evenings,Adam would take downt he family Bibleand read a chapter or two, and the little Iders stoppedtheir play and listend as the older ones discussed they meaning of what had been read.
Their nearest neighbor was WashBrown and his wife Minnie, who had two children, Earl and ZAda. Earl could not say "Fulenwider" and called them the Iders so the three youngest children were called the"little Iders."
One day Minnie and the children came to spend the afternoon with the Iders. Mandy (Amanda) was sent to the spring for some fresh drinkingwater. Earl begged to go with her. His mother said he might go buthemusttry to dip thewater fromthe spring. Earl pro9ised he wouldnot, but when they got to the spring he said, "Let me dip the water."
"No, your Ma said you musn't," said Mandy., But Ear inisisted and, to be agreeable, she let him have the water bucket.
Earl, a short chubby fellow, dipped the vessel into the spring, but when he attemptedto lift it out, he tumbled into the spring head first with a splashand a frightenedcry. Mandy caught him by his clothes and pulled hm out all dripping wet from head to tow. When they got to the house, Mandy's mother gave her a good spanking for lettng Earl dip the water. Earl was four, Mandy five.
As Amanda recalled the incident years later, she said, "I wasn't the least bitfrightened, but I resented the spanking Earl caused me to get."
In addition to his farm, for many years Adam owned and operated a sorghum mill. While Doll and Juke were harrowing the ground and drillingthe wheat, Adam and his daughters, Alice and Emma, the sorghum girls as their friends called them, opreated the mill.
But children have a way of growing up. Adolphus (Doll) was the first one to leave the homenest; he married and went to live onthe Wash Brownplace (Wash had sold his farm and moved to South Dakota) and came home often. Six years later, on a cold and windy February day, the sun brightly shining,relativesand friends gathered inthe Fulenwider living room for a simple home wedding. Emma,in a gray dress trimmed in whie lace and a ribbon, looked sweent and demure as she swaid the woreds that made her the wife of Edmund S Lefler. And just one month and one day later, Alice, ina simioar hnme wedding, became the wife of Arealis Poole. The next year Juke went to live with Grandma Miller to helpher take care ofthe farm.
Growing up on a farm in a large family is a happy experience, but whenthe family beginsto break up there is heartache and loneliness; each leave-taking makes an empty place inthe home thatnothing seems to fill. The Fulenwider home, that forso many years seemed to be spilling over with young people, was now strangely quiet,and afer a few years it was no longer the gathering place for jolly young pe9ople.
Some fothe happiest memories ofthe Fulenwider family are associaed with the big elm tree that stood inthe yard near the corner of the front porch of the old pioneer house. This tree, so intimate and friendly, seemed almost like a member of the family. Of all that was dear to Amanda in the days of her childhood, only the elm tree remained to welcome her when last she visitied thehome place durigthe spring of 1958. All the rest is gone. On the hillside where the sorghum mill stoodm, nowgrow forest trees over half a century old; and the spring at the foot of thehil near thehouse, fromwhich she rescued her little playmate-- thenfour feet across andnearly three feet deep -- isdry, only a trickle of water oozes out among the bull rushes,and the little white schoolhouse just across the field, its bell now silent, is used by Jean Fulenwider, who bought the building for a storeroom for corn, hay, and soy beans, and a sixroom cottage has replaced the pioneer hme. Such is the way of progress.2 Adam Fulenwider was born on 1 February 1839 at Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina; p. 20 Torchbearers of Freedom "Adam Fulenwider, born February 1 1839, Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina, fourth child of Jacob and Mary Casper Fulenwider."1,3 He married Anna 'Ann' Miller at Union County, Illinois, on 1 August 1861.1,3 Adam Fulenwider died on 16 September 1905 at Creal Springs, Williamson County, Illinois, at age 66; "died at Creal Springs, Williamson County, Illinois September 16 1905" Torchbearers pl 20.3
