Great Grandpa Elijah "Bunt" Fuller married to (3) Elizabeth Amburgey. Elijah Bunt Fuller and Elizabeth Amburgey are found in the 1900 Knott County, KY census. Elijah "Bunt" Fuller, was in the Civil War and served in the 13th KY Cav Co C and 13th KY Cav Co B. According to our Mom, Ida Fuller Potter, he also served on the Union side in the 3 Forks Battalion as a Corporal. Additionally, he was a substitute for another person in the Civil War perhaps on the Union side.

Mom (Ida Fuller Potter) also states that Grandpa Bunt Fuller was captured and made a bold, successful escape, running over four or five guards to freedom. Other statements of importance; Mother reported that one of her Grandfathers was on the Union side and the other was on the Confederate side.

Our Mother (Ida Fuller Potter) made the following statement that is significant in that it explains the political positions of the two sides of those in the Civil War; She said, "Grandpa Bunt went in the service as a Democrat and came out a Republican." Grandpa Bunt served in the Confederate Army in the Civil War. Elijah "Bunt" Fuller was a considerable hero in the Civil War according to our mother. She said that everyone around them who knew her grandpa was very proud of him and his Civil War service.

Mother spoke often of how her grandfather, Elijah "Bunt" Fuller saved her from being trampled to death by a rearing horse. He jumped up and got between her and the horse and with his arms outstretched and reaching back to keep her from getting near the horse, he somehow calmed the horse down. She was so close to death it left an indelible impression on her mind. She loved her grandfather very much. She said that her grandpa could jump up and click his heels together at the age of 88 years.

It is possible that our mystery great grandmother, Martha? Combs?, mother of Green Fuller, our grandfather, may possibly have been living in North Carolina or Virginia at the time of our Grandfather Fuller's birth.
