FAMILY HISTORY:
Donor Alice Mable Fullerton Watson was born on Jan 20, 1909. Her older brother Joe Spitler Fullerton (who the box was address to) was born on July 23, 1906. They are the children of Angus Morrison "Doc" Fullerton and Nellie Ann Spitler Fullerton, two teachers who were in Comanche County at the time of the land lottery. Doc and his brother PG came in a covered wagon to Oklahoma Territory in 1900, after PG was diagnosed with tuberculosis. He was told the open air would be good for his health. PG later served as a US Commissioner and judge. The brothers didn't win land in the lottery, but Doc bought a farm that was relinquished soon after. A few years after Joe was born, they moved to Nellie's School Land Lease. Alice was born here. She and brother Joe followed in the footsteps of their parents and taught school. Alice married a farmer, Cecil Watson, and the couple had two children, Bill and Ruby. Joe bought a farm across the road from the family home, and raised two children with his wife Rose Mary Stone.
