Blue Island Sun-Standard - September 1916

Samuel L Fulton, for many years Supervisor of Bremen township, passed away Sunday (3 Sep 1916) at his home near Tinley Park after a short illness. Funeral services were held Wednesday (6 Sep 1916) afternoon at 2 o'clock from the late residence, Rev. ladwig of Tinley park, an old friend of the deceased, preaching the funeral service. Blue Island lodge No. 716, A.F. & A.M. of which Mr. Fulton had been a member since 1891, then took charge of the services, a quartet singing "Lead Kindly Light" and "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere." The Masonic services at the grave were beautiful and impressive.

The profusion of flowers from a large circle of sympathizing friends showed the respect in which the deceased was held. Besides a number of set pieces, among which were a beautiful pillow from the Masons, and large wreaths from the township of Bremen and the employees at Schmitt Bros.` store, there were numerous other wreaths and sprays.

A number of relatives from Gary, Joliet, Morris, Mokena, Chicago and Blue Island attended the funeral.

Mr. Fulton was born in Tinley Park July 16, 1846. On July 16, 1874 he was married to Miss Jennie McMurray of Aurora. He was a devoted husband and kind and loving father. He was a man of staunch character and pleasing personality and was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him. As an officeholder he was honest, capable and efficient, and was ever untiring in his efforts to make life a little less hard for sorrowing individuals to bear. In short, he was a true friend to all.

Deceased is survived by his wife, two sons - Albert of Tinley Park and James of Blue Island; and two daughters - Mrs. Herman Siemsen and Mrs. Charles Mayfing, both of Tinley Park.
 
Notation:

Mokena News Bulletin - Friday February 02, 1940

Mrs. Sam Fulton, 80 years of age, who has been ill for some time, died in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Clara Mayfing in Tinley Park last Friday.

Funeral services were held from the late home Sunday afternoon, with Rev. L.E. Weinreich of the Tinley Park Methodist Church officiating. burial was made in Smith Cemetery.

Notation:

Her name was Jennie McMurray Fulton. The memorial book at the Tinley Park Historical Society which gives date of death as 27 Jan 1940, and burial on 30 Jan 1940 -- this conflicts with the newspaper article which would compute to be 26 Jan (death) and 28 Jan (burial). The memorial book, prepared by the funeral home, would have a higher level of accuracy than the newspaper article.
