John Street Fulton, a leading physician of Kiowa and one of the most successful in Barber county, is a native Kansan, born June 4, 1872, on a farm in Jefferson county. He is a son of Thomas H. Fulton, a Kansas pioneer who came to this state in 1869, when a young man, and located on a farm in Jefferson county. Mr. Fulton, Sr., was born in Logan county, Ohio, Nov. 21, 1844. In 1869 he was united in marriage to Miss Ella G. Hull, a native of Muskingum county, Ohio, born Oct. 27, 1854. She had come to Kansas with her father, William Hull, who settled on government land in Jefferson county in 1861, and was another of the state's earliest settlers. Of the union of Thomas H. Fulton and Ella G. Hull were born nine childrensix sons and three daughters: William S., born in 1871, a merchant at Hiawatha, Kan.; John Street is the next in order of birth; Sarah E., born in 1874, is the wife of Charles Trimble, a farmer at Boyle, Kan.; Charles M., born July 4, 1876, is a farmer at Kiowa, Kan.; Albert J., born Dec. 25, 1878, graduated in the medical department of the University of Kansas, in 1903, and is located at Kansas City, Kan.; Robert N., born May 1, 1880, is an agriculturist at Oskaloosa, Kan.; Ernest L., born Aug. 10, 1882, is a graduate of the Kansas State Normal School at Emporia, and is superintendent of the city schools at Liberal, Kan.; Mary E., born June 24, 1885, is the wife of George Koons, a merchant at Boyle, Kan.; and Bernice, born Dec. 21, 1887, is a senior at the Kansas State Normal School and will graduate from that institution with the class of 1912.
Dr. John Street Fulton was educated in the public schools of Jefferson county, Kansas, and at Campbell College, Holton, Kan. For five years following he was engaged in teaching. This was but an initial step to other professional labor, however, for he had decided to devote his career to the practice of medicine, and with that end in view entered the medical department of the University of Kansas, in which he was graduated in 1901. He made an exceptional record as a student, received as the secondary honors of his class the Eli Lillie prize, and was also president of his class. After his graduation he entered Bethany Hospital, at Kansas City, Kan., as an interne to more fully qualify himself for his profession. He began the active practice of medicine at Quinter, Kan., where he remained two years. The following three years were spent at Dunavant, Kan. In 1906 he removed to Kiowa, Kan., where he has since been very successfully engaged in professional duties and has built up a large and remunerative practice. He is local surgeon for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad at that point.
On May 15, 1902, Dr. Fulton wedded Miss Mabel R., daughter of J. W. Hubbard, a retired farmer of Emporia, Kan. Mr. Hubbard is a native of Wisconsin and came to Emporia, Kan., in 1870. Mrs. Fulton was born in Wesley, Iowa, Sept. 21, 1875, and was educated at the Kansas State Normal School at Emporia, where she qualified as a teacher and was thus engaged three years. She is also a graduate nurse of Bethany Hospital, Kansas City, Kan., having completed the course there in 1902. Dr. and Mrs. Fulton have one child, Ruth E., born Sept. 26, 1905.Pages 991-992 from volume III, part 2 of Kansas: a cyclopedia of state history, embracing events, institutions, industries, counties, cities, towns, prominent persons, etc. ... / with a supplementary volume devoted to selected personal history and reminiscence.
