Sanford L. Fulkerson
Was born and reared in Ohio county near Ceralvo, on Green River. He remained with his father on the farm until he was twenty-one years of age, when he started in life to battle for himself. He carried with him the same rugged honesty, that had characterized his youth, and which has since made him so popular with his people, and won for him his well merited success.
Mr. Fulkerson has filled several positions of honor and trust, with great credit to himself, and benefit to his country. He was elected Constable in the old Centertown District, in 1875, and remained one term. During the years 1877-78-79- 80 he was Deputy Sheriff; in 1881-82 he was Deputy Assessor; he was Deputy Clerk in his part of the county; in 1888 he was elected and served as Police Judge of Ceralvo; in 1889-90 and until June, 1891, he was Deputy Sheriff under our present Sheriff, Mr. S. C. Taylor, when he took his seat as Justice of the Peace for the Rockport Magisterial District, to which position he was elected in August, 1890.
Perhaps no man in Ohio county has been as continuously in the service of the people, and filled so many different positions in the last seventeen years us has Mr. Fulkerson. He has been married twice and has two children, both boys -- Henry, aged 8, and McHenry, aged 4 years.
He has given much attention to music, both vocal and instrumental, having won several prizes in contests in vocal music, and having organized and maintained one or two very successful cornet bands.
Mr. Fulkerson is now engaged in mercantile business at Ceralvo, where he holds his office as Justice of the Peace.
