Abraham Fuller, d. 1794:
“Farther along is a tomb facing the road, which as a marble door, securely locked, with handles used to remove it. It is shaded by a spreading weeping willow, – a slip taken from the willow that shadowed the grave of Napoleon, on the is land of St. Helena, – and over top stands a red sandstone tablet on pillars. This is the tomb of Gen. William Hull. On the table over the tomb are two inscriptions, one to the memory of Capt. Abraham Hull, who fell in the battle of Bridgewater, Upper Canada, in 1814, and the other to the memory of Abraham Fuller, who was successively Representative, Senator, Councillor and Judge. The wife of General Hull, who was the daughter of Abraham Fuller, is buried with him.” Excerpt: of page 275 from:
