The Fuller Homestead

The Fullers were carpenters by trade. They migrated from Sodus, Wayne Co., New York to Woodbridge twp., Hillsdale Co, Michigan by 1860 to homestead the vacant land at the corner of Steamburg and Rodgers roads. A main house, barn and at least 2 other outbuildings that appear to have been smaller residential buildings were built. Cornelius Fuller and wife Lydia French sold a nearby parcel on Oct. 10, 1845. His parents and younger brother Samuel were still in New York in 1850. It is possible that they all joined in the settlement of the building of the Rodgers road homestead. This photo was taken in 1998.
