My brick wall is Thomas Fuller born 1775 place unknown but most likely Conn or Mass. He was in Salisbury, Addison, Vermont by 1790 when he took the Freeman's Oath. In 1800 he purchased land in Goshen/Ripton, Vermont. He married in Putney, Windham Vermont Anna Nancy Briggs of the Clement Briggs of Plymouth , Colonial line. They lived out their lives in Ripton, Vermont. His father might have been named Thomas Fuller, as there was a Thomas Fuller in Salisbury, Addison, Vermont in the 1790 Elector List for Salisbury. Thomas Fuller born 1775 also had a son, Thomas Fuller and 5 daughters. These children married and surnames are Gilmore, Piper, Ellis, Wing, Hurlburt and Flint. Eventually, Thomas Fuller Jr. left Vermont and moved to Wiscoy, Winona, Minnesota.
Any ideas of which Fuller family they belong to? I did a Y-dna test on my male Fuller cousin and he did not match Mayflower Fullers.
