Solon L. Fuller Papers

Solon L. Fuller was born in New Jersey ca. 1800. At the time of the Federal Census of 1860, Fuller was living in Randolph County, Alabama with three teenage sons. His occupation was listed as “mechanic,” but the family apparently farmed as well. In the early 1860s Solon Fuller remarried and by 1862 was serving in Croft’s Battery, Georgia Artillery (AKA the Columbus Light Artillery). Fuller’s two oldest sons, Phillip (b. Alabama ca. 1842) and Sidney (b. Alabama ca. 1844) served as privates in Co. E, 5th Battalion (Cavalry) of Hilliard’s Alabama Legion. When Hilliard’s Legion was disbanded, the 5th Battalion became part of the 10th Confederate Cavalry. Solon Fuller’s youngest son, John (b. Georgia ca. 1837), also served in the Confederate Army. Solon Fuller and his son Sidney both died during the war.
