William Riley Billy Fuller

William Riley Billy Fuller b 26 Sept 1899/1900 d 2 Jan 1975 Lexington, Fayette Co KY; buried Blue Grass Memorial Gardens and Mausoleum, Nicholasville, Jessamine Co KY; s/o Green Fuller and Margaret Amburgey. Findagrave 204965620. At the age of 18 years, William worked as a rodman at the Consolidation Coal Co. Jenkins, KY; listed as 18 years of age and lists his birthday as 26 Sept 1899 on his WW1 draft registration of 12 Sept, 1918 in Whitesburg, KY. His description is listed as short in height, medium build, blue eyes, and brown hair. He lists his nearest relative as Green Fuller, father, Wheelwright, Floyd Co KY.

(I recall he never married and he told my mom, Ida Fuller Potter that it was because his parents fought so much it turned him against marriage). I personally have not heard of fighting between my grandmother and grandfather, so he must have been speaking of his mother, Margaret Amburgey and Green Fuller.

William (mom called him Billy) was in the US Army at about age 43. He enlisted 16 Jul 1942 during WWII and was discharged 20 May 1943. His WW1 draft registration was signed 12 Sept, 1918 and stated to send mail to Berea College, Berea KY. On William's WW2 draft registration card, his birthday is listed as 26 Sept 1900 Pinetop, KY. He's listed as 5'4" tall and weight as 138 pounds, so you can see that he was a very small man. At the time of his draft registration for WWII on 16 Feb, 1942 in Lexington, Fayette Co KY, he was living in Lexington, Ky. He was working for W.E. Hutton & Co in Lexington, KY. He was listed as race: white; eyes: blue; hair: brown; complexion: dark brown.

William Riley Fuller's social security record lists his birthdate as 26 Sept 1899, but his grave marker lists his birth year as 1900, so I don't know which is correct. The census record for 1900 lists him as 8 months old, but the transcriber wrote that he was 21 in that census for some unknown reason. It's very clear to me that it states 8/12.
