    Documents
    Fuller, Charles Woodman - Family Medical Book
    Fuller, Charles Woodman - Family Medical Book
    The Charles W Fuller family Medical Book or Home Encyclopedia of Health has recently came to light as it was handed down in the family from Grace Dechanet Fuller to her daughter Belle Fuller Vaughan and then down to her daughter Barbara Vaughan and family. It has been well used and is without the front or back covers (and a few pages in the front) and is some 5 inches thick and contains some 1400 pages. The book is in fact 10 books in one and covers all aspects of health and the human body as seen by the author in 1904. It is so complete that it even covers detailed pictures of bone and muscle placement.
    We can imagine our ancestor Grace Dechanet Fuller using this book almost daily with her family of nine children and are thankful that it was handed down in the family.
    The attached file is interactive to a website that has the entire book and that website is secure.

    Fuller Coal Mine, Carbon, Alberta Canada:
    Fuller Coal Mine, Carbon, Alberta Canada: (18)
    The Fuller family owned and operated the Fuller coal mine for some years about 1920. The mine opened in 1918 and went through several owners before it eventually shut down in 1930. The mine was a big part of the Fuller family life for many years. Charles also built a rooming house for the miners in the area and Grace was the cook and manager during this time it was open.
    Fuller Farm and Ranch, Carbon, Alberta, Canada:
    Fuller Farm and Ranch, Carbon, Alberta, Canada: (54)
    Babe Fuller said that the boys in the Fuller family were farmers to help on the farm but they were also cowboys and loved activities of being cowboys including bucking broncs and all that goes with that. We know that some of the boys participated in the Calgary Stampede, a big yearly rodeo event.
    Glen signed up for the army in 1916 and listed as "Ranch Cowboy" as his profession or trade and in another questionnaire he listed "Horse Breaker" as his profession. Harry listed "Farmer" on his.
